I really love I'll Be On My Way, I Just Don't Understand, and the variations on All My Loving and Things We Said Today.

It's got to be 'i just don't understand' .... a typical example of the beatles taking rare source material and transforming it into something amazingly powerful. Johns vocal performance is stunningly emotional.

'Live At The BBC' is a favourite of mine as it lets you hear the band in an almost live set up,communicating to their fans directly and having a whale of a time into the process.

It's very difficult to choose just one. I adore this whole collection.

A bit off-topic on the subject of cassettes: When I was in Germany about 2 years back, I'd picked up about 10 cassettes or so of Beatles/solo stuff (Double Fantasy, Wings yada yada) that were released in the late 80's to mid 90's because I hadn't them on CD and having it on cassette was better than nothing. I was expecting to pay maximum €20  to take the cassettes of the seller's hands, he wanted €80 for them. EIGHTY EURO FOR CASSETTES?!? I just looked at him and said "ahh...no" and slowly put them back down and walked out of his shop. Who the hell would spend €8 on a cassette? I'd pay €4 maximum for one and that would have to be basically brand new! I could have bought all of those records on good quality vinyl for less than €80.

But I did manage to get a new cassette of Extra Texture (Read All About It) for €1.50 in another shop so.... win-win?

I stopped paying anywhere past £3 or £4 for a cassette before the end of the Twentieth Century, nowadays i wouldnt pay anywhere near £1. I dont normally pay more than a few quid for a CD nowadays unless its Beatles or solo and brand new off the expensive music shop floor and not available any cheaper online.

 

I first bought 'Live At The BBC' on cassette and didnt get the CD for a good few years. Still seems strange when playing the album that i dont have to turn over after 'Clarabella' or that i have to scroll down past 35 songs or so to get to 'Crinsk Dee Night'. And, going off topic, I cannot get the grasp of 'Help' opening with 'Help'; in my world it should open with 'I Need You' as that's how i grew up with it for years.

Fool-money quickly part= me

I have a good few cassettes which I got for free including a cassette only manufactured in German featuring 20 of The Beatles' greatest hits- the sound is shoddy but there's something nice about listening to it for some reason. 

Here's a quick question about Beatles CDs, this thread has been completely derailed and I'm sorry Annadog40:

How much do the Anthology CDs cost over where ye live? Round here, they go for ridiculous amounts- I've seen upwards of €33/£24/US$36 for each album- it's just stupid prices that nobody would pay for. I wonder is it because they're slowly trying to cease producing the Anthology CDs (if they haven't already?) so they can rerelease  them along with the book and the documentaries (still have to read and watch them a-hard-days-night-paul-7) because they are going for expensive prices online as well and you can't get them in shops anymore (at least I couldn't).
