After hearing Joe Brown play "I'll See You In My Dreams" I told my wife I wanted that song played at my funeral. She replied, "I'm ready when you are." true story.

Ha ha - I won't mention this post to my wife - might give her ideas :)

 

Has she discovered a-hard-days-night-john-3 your use of her credit card? Should we be worried? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

 

Not yet - she was a little confused about the Dylan mono box which arrived in the mail - but when the Dylan Complete and Beatles U. S. Albums boxes show up in the next few weeks I have to have some fancy footwork ready :)

No idea what thread it was in. 

Trcanberra, what have you decided to do with the A$400 cd player that doesn't play properly? Are you keeping it or taking it back?

Thanks for the interest mmm.

As you may know - I am 'between jobs' (aka unemployed) at the moment and while my budget was not much in audiophile terms it was a major purchase for me (I have been saving pennies for around 3 years). My wife is still not talking to me after I went over budget on Saturday (I have mixed feelings on that part :) ).

The upshot is that I took it back to the store this morning, had an argument with the owner's wife about whether this was a flaw or a 'feature' that goes with it being a 'low-end' piece of equipment, and eventually swapped it when one of the sales staff stepped in and said he was stunned it handled CDs so poorly. I now have a Harman Kardon HD 980 which I bought as it is a bit old and I got a good discount from age and it being display stock (I got $160 off the price). I have been throwing every CD in the house at it and it is playing them all with grace and precision - even my wife mumbled something about 'great sound'.

Why wasn't Dylan there?

I think he was on tour in the US and couldn't make it.

Bob was indeed touring at the time. Bob is always touring! However, a couple of weeks before the concert, he paid his own tribute to the upcoming anniversary of George's death, on 13 November 2002 in New York City, by playing Something for the first time, and preceding it with this comment:

George was a giant, a great, great soul, with all of the humanity, all of the wit and humor, all the wisdom, the spirituality, the common sense of a man and compassion for people. The world is a profoundly emptier place without him.

Bob rarely comments on those who have passed. It was maybe his first comment on George's death, his first acknowledgement of his loss. It showed how much he loved the man. Just as, years later, with Roll On John, he would pay tribute to our other lost Beatle.
