So that's some more ticked off the list. Glad you liked the Long Tall Sally songs. It was a great little EP.

I moved the above from where they were to where you wanted them. Any time you make a mistake, just let one of the mods know and we'll happily sort it for you.

I think that it wouldn't sound too bad if you'd take away Yoko, indeed.

And I still have to listen to the two John and Yoko CDs I have, as well as the 'bonus' CD from New York City – sigh.

When you think about all the great musicians the Beatles could have jammed / recorded with ………

Cold Turkey and Baby, Please Don't Go are good, enjoyable recordings on that NYC bonus disc, they really bounce along and even Yoko's additions seems to add to and not hinder what everyone else is doing. Two of the few instances where that is the case.

Well, that's a relief.  I actually don't mind listening to them; it's just hard to find a time when no one is home – it's bad enough upsetting the neighbours let alone the family :)

The film of John in New York City was on tv, get to Hound Dog and cue the wailing from yoko-ono_01. Song got ruined, TV got turned over. Yoko has her moments but they are very few and fleeting.

I have the Toronto concert on DVD and whenever I put it on my son complains – whatever part of the house he is in.

Don't blame your son in the slightest, sounds like a very sensible individual.

I haven't listened to the Toronto concert in years and have never seen the DVD, just can't get into it. I only watched the NYC concert as it delays going outside where its cold, windy and wet (still haven't gone hence i'm here). The CD mix for the NYC concert sucks so badly and cries out for a reissued remastered remix – with all Yoko's vocals removed. I will pay to hear John but not willing to pay £'s for Yoko bleating, yelping and wailing.yoko-ono_01blue-meanie

A few years ago (whilst I was getting into The Beatles) I listened to every single album. After that I would just listen to ones I liked but as you'd expect I can't remember all the ones I like! So I was going back through them and found loads I'd missed out on before, For No One, Cry Baby Cry

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

Having received Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, and Past Masters for Christmas, I can now say I have heard every canonical Beatles song, plus Anthology, Bootleg-1963, Love and Let It Be… Naked. All I have left is Live At The BBC.

Live At The BBC is excellent, a fantastic way to complete your collection. 

Will you enter into the world of live, alternates, demo's etc now you have the official material or is this your lot?

I'm probably going to stick to the officially released stuff, though I do have a live bootleg on vinyl called Eight Arms To Hold You.

A vinyl bootleg… nice. I have a second-generation bootleg of Let It Be sessions and though the quality is all over the place, it's fun to listen to "No Pakistanis," a faster "Two of Us," and "Commonwealth." It's neat to hear the tomfoolery the band could still do when they weren't feuding. 

"It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."

I have listened to every single Beatles album, including Let it Be…Naked and Love. I also have the 1963 Bootleg RecordingsLive At The BBC versions of songs that I haven't listened to. 

We were talking about the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion.

I understand that as i know folk who are happy with the official material and don't go any deeper, however there is some damn fine stuff, not officially released, out there. There is a thread on it all , maybe more than one, but i have no idea where its located.

The quality's actually surprisingly good, considering it's a live Beatles bootleg on vinyl in the 60s.
