Ah, yes the latest excuse to spend over $50. Any Non Beatles people I need look for?

Well, you know that vinyl and LPs are the same thing*. How about cassettes? 

I'll always have a place in my heart for vinyl. First, it's the format the Beatles worked with. Second, it's really cool!

Or 78's. Or 12 inch singles. Or 10 inch singles.

Ha, LPs, EPs and 45s are the only formats of record I know. Guess how I know them… a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

(If I wasn't a Beatles fan, I would know what a 45 is. I was in "Hairspray.")

It's a Scottish accent, btw.

I can hear "There is not dark side of the moon". Zig and I were talking about "Isn't this where…" on The Wall, at the end of Outside The Wall.

Zig- I just turned In The Flesh? up to an unhealthy volume level, and it is indeed there.

Yeah I meant EPs. I'm not a good typer who doesn't realize their mistakes til someone else tells me. Thank your for correcting me.

It's good to know they left it in for the CD – no reason not to, really.

Thanks for confirming that, Walrus. Sorry for any hearing loss you may have sacrificed in the name of research!

That vinyl comment – it was a joke. I don't think all people under 20 are ignorant. Although my friend's teenage niece went to his house and saw a 7" single, and remarked "That's a big CD". The mind boggles…

Oh, I knew that. I was just playing along. My goal is to get all their albums, both American or British.

LOL! That reminds me of some teens who saw my U2's Joshua Tree vinyl and my walkman when I took it to school one day. They had never seen those before. They liked the sound of the tape though.

IMO, the best beatle-headphone album is Revolver, with its cool sound effects.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Every set of headphones that I buy breaks within the first week. That's what I get for having little cousins.

But when I do get to listen to them with BOTH ears, I like listening to "A Day In The Life". And "Revolution 9" is less….yeah. It's better than it is on vinyl is all I have to say.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Yeah, I can't leave my earphones just lying around because my baby likes to chew on them!

 

I like With The Beatles and Abbey Road on earphones and A Day In The Life and Revolution 9 becuase it's waaay crazier!

One of my favorite things about listening to A Day In The Life with headphones is listening to John say "Sugar Plum Fairies" right before the first chords. Something about that makes me really happy and then there is the rest of the song. Damn that song is just great.

Well, as we were discussing, the first artist to joke around prior to the song starting, I suggest the first was Dean Martin. For example, on That's Amore, he says "Smoke a cigar while I sing, go ahead."

I love music that is just heavy with headphones, not like heavy metal heavy, but the solo from Michelle would be an example, it just melts.
But Wooden Ships from CSN and maybe Y has to be the coolest song ever with headphones, the bass and guitar solos sound so good and the little harmony bits they throw in are fantastic. What an awesome group.

a-hard-days-night-paul-6Wooden Ships is indeed fantastic through headphones, Gnik.

Another solid one is this live version of Crossroads by Cream. Many rave about Clapton's solos in this song (@ 1:27 and 2:31) and deservedly so. But lost to most is the fantastic "lead bass" playing by Jack Bruce.

I'll probably get arguments from those on this Forum with Paulier-than-thou attitudes, but I'd put JB up against any bass player before or since.

Come Together sounds awesome with earphones.. the "shoos" of John make me feel he's whispering to my ear… gives me goosebumpsa-hard-days-night-john-7

 

To me, those goose bumps became elephant bumps when I found out he is actually saying "shoot me".a-hard-days-night-john-7

 

Agreed. I hear him saying 'Shoot Me' so well on that part now when I listen to the song. It's actually kind of creepy. I kind of wish I could un hear it but it does make the song really powerful.

 

One of my favorites to listen to in headphones is 'Your Mother Should Know'. I love how the 1st verse vocal is in the left ear, then the 2nd verse is in the right, and from the 'Sing it again…' point the vocals are in both. I dunno maybe I'm easily amused but I think it's brilliant! 

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....

Don't quite follow this at all 'cause I think that DSotM is one of the essential "headphones albums"! Especially with all the spoken bits and flight announcements in "On The Run" and so forth. (And you knew that Alan Parsons was in the booth for both of those albums you mentioned, of course! And that the spoken bits were the recorded product of random interviews that Floyd conducted of random people in & around EMI Studios, and that Paul & Linda were two of the interviewees but declined to answer any questions, so they didn't appear on the album…)

Actually, Paul and Linda did answer several questions, as did other members of Wings. They would have been recording Red Rose Speedway at the time I think. However, Roger Waters deemed Paul and Linda's answers "trying too hard to be funny," so they weren't used. Henry McCulloch can be heard on DSOTM though, saying "I don't know, I was very drunk at the time."

For all these years, I had no idea that was Henry McCullough. Thanks for that bit of trivia!
