Is anyone planning a trip to New York City on either of these dates?

I have been toying with the idea of visiting Strawberry Fields in Central Park as I am sure there will be tons of Lennon fans holding vigil. But, to be honest, I just don't know if I'd be able to hold it together. His death was very emotional for me (I was 17 at the time and devastated).

I still have a hard time listening to certain songs and interviews.

I saw a recent documentary on the BBC with some footage from a previous anniversary at Strawberry Fields, Central Park. It was full of hippies with acoustic guitars singing Lennon and Beatles songs badly and getting high. If I was there I'd probably run as far away as possible.

The link you provided says the footage is no longer available, but I've seen footage similar to that of which you are referring.

I still can't decide if I want to go, but stoned hippies sininging badly won't be the reason for staying away. I just don't know if it would be worth the expense of going and not being able to get close enough to Strawberry Fields because of the sheer number of people.

Perhaps a silent vigil at home on John's birthday would be best. I can use the money for the remastered Lennon set instead. Then, next time I'm in NYC, I can visit without having to fight crowds. If I enjoyed fighting crowds, I'd still live in Phoenix!

Here's the new artwork for the John Lennon releases: http://www.beatlesbible.com/20.....d-october/

Can someone outside the UK let me know if you see any Amazon ads? The codes work for the .co.uk site but I don't think the products have been added to the other stores yet. I don't mind if it's blank, but if you see a load of broken stuff it'd be useful to know. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I can see them Joe. I don't see anything unusual - except for the shape of Ed Sullivan's head on one of the Amazon ads. Then again, he was born with it.

Ed Sullivan? Hmm. We may not be seeing the same thing. I'm talking about the 'Buy from Amazon' strip - it should have links to the Signature Box, Power To The People and Gimme Some Truth releases.

Here is what I am looking at.

Just to the right of the first quotation by Yoko, there is a button for "Buy From Amazon" but no product to select and no link. To the right of that, there is an ad to pre-order the newly released 4 Ed Sullivan shows.

 

Below, the "Buy From Amazon" button there are pictures of his albums that you can click on to blow them up bigger, but no options to buy them from Amazon. Hope that helps.

Additional Info...

Under the "In the gallery" strip, is another "Buy from Amazon" strip. It features the The Beatles Stereo and Mono Box Sets, but no Lennon-specific merchandise.

That does, thanks. I think the Ed Sullivan ad was a Google one, and you're not seeing the Amazon ones as the product links aren't active on amazon.com yet. Thanks for the info - it's exactly what I hoped would be the case.

Joe I wanted to send you PM but I got an error message

In John's section there's a fact about The Simpsons, that he's the only Beatle who hasn't appeared in that show. a-hard-days-night-john-7

Well, I found this today. a-hard-days-night-john-1

I know it doesn't sound like his voice.. but it's John!!!

Ah, but it wasn't actually him doing the voice. Thanks for that though - maybe I'll reword the random fact.

They did play Mother on one of the Halloween specials so he did have a voice on the Simpsons
