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.

Expert Textpert posted in another thread 
I don't consider him my favorite but let me tell you:

The Living in the Material World and Concert for George films made me CRY LIKE A BABY, and I usually don't do that.

(hope this is on-topic) (I wanted to reply without further derailment) (sorry, @Expert Textpert a-hard-days-night-george-9

I can agree with yer there. I'm not an emotional person and I never cry, but when I saw bits from Concert for George (I haven't seen Living In The Material World yet), I got this terrible ache in my chest like unshed tears that was even worse than proper crying. I almost wished I could have just gone and cried. It would have been such a relief. ahdn_george_07

 Living in the material world was a good doc, but the Concert for George was a bit of a bore for me.

No need to apologise to George, he wasn't there. 

And it isn't like a film or anything. It's a tribute concert. So... ahdn_paul_01

Watching right now for the first time, and enjoying it much more than I expected to! That extended Indian thing is awes. I'm amazed at how well Eric's acoustic guitar soloing sounds at the end of this piece, how well he fits his blues into the Indian scales. (And I'm the biggest Clapton-basher on this site...)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I think the concert is far better than the film.

When I got the DVD, I was delighted that it included a straight version of the whole concert, without any of the order shuffling, omissions or interruptions that are in the film.

I last watched the concert on George's birthday. Can't remember when I last watched the film.

I don't usually recommend concerts to people…….But this and Phil Colins 'Live and Loose in paris 99' are two I have no hesitation in plugging.

Paul's best ever vocal…….and it sent me to learn just one song on the Uke…..'See You in My Dreams'

He's there all right, John once said that "John & Yoko are like The Wind, you can't see it but when it passes the trees bend" and the trees are certainly bending throughout this Concert from the very moment that Olivia first lights the fires.  Ravi, Eric, Olivia, Dhani, Paul, Ringo, and just about Everyone Else who loved him dearly are present.  Yes, John is also present as well so listen closely...:-)

Well, I meant that he wasn't responsible for it all so there's no need to apologise to him if yer find it a drag. It would be Olivia and Dhani you'd apologise to. Of course he's there in spirit, laughing as Paul rips into 'Something'.

and you call yourself a Beatles Fan?!!

 

In all seriousness, I wouldn't have posted it if I didn't think that you'd have a Deep Appreciation for it.  Go grab a Beverage of Your Choice and sit back and relax, then tell me that these aren't the Most Memorable Beatles' Moments since the 'Anthology' release.  Paul & Ringo aren't the only highlights here, they are numerous from Start to Finish, the only bits that you may want to skip are the Monty Python Intermission (and even that is something to behold by the Brits), but everything else is NOT to be missed!  meanmistermustard!!!...:-)

Its not going to change my appreciation of George and i dont have any desire to watch artists cover his music. Its another of those "must see" events and as with nearly all of those my instant reaction is "why must i see it? Who says so?" and i dont. Same reason why it took me 15 months to pick up 'Tune In'. Great book but im not doing because i have to, i'll do it when i want to and that doesnt happen when the world shouts as one to join in. Sorry but a-hard-days-night-paul-11
