In whatever the shop is now called in Glasgow (Zavvi or something) you can get the Anthology discs for £18, same as with the 'BBC' discs. For some reason they charge £38 for the BBC box with both volumes. £36 separate or pay £2 more to get them both together. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 

I dont think i paid £18 when i first bought them back whenever i did. If i remember correctly I bought 'Live At The BBC ' for £10. No wonder folk go online nowadays. The latest John Lennon remasters (2011?) cost £15 each. You can get Paul's latest remasters for £8 if you look around!!

That was the same in HMV in Dublin, it was like €48 to buy the two of them together or €22 for them each- yay let's spend €4 on a cheap cardboard case that'll get scuffed/fall apart after you take the discs out about 5 times!

I bought the box for £35 (I saved a whole fecking pound)!!

Apple must love me for how i buy the expensive one. Bad mouth them and yet shove a Beatle product out and its "here's my life savings for the more expensive edition with the bit of tat i really dont give a crap about".

I bought the remastered 'Blue Album ' cd for the clean 'A Day In The Life '. I could have feckin' downloaded it for 99p. 

I think my venom towards Apple is fuelled by my own incomprehensible stupidity.

^ I still plan on getting a job with Apple (the Corps one not the Computers although I have a better chance of getting a job with the latter but the thought of living in Cork-yuuucckk), just so I can put some of your ideas on the table and see if they'd accept them.

Either that or get a job with MPL Communications or Dark Horse, I'm not picky.

You're too smart to work for Apple. You'd have ideas like issuing stuff that makes sense.

Just to be me and give a compliment and then rip it away I think a baboon could do a better job than the idiots at Apple.

At least i can say i didnt purchase that iTunes only piece of useless crap that was 'Tomorrow Never Knows '.

   I think I have the same disease!  I keep saying I would never buy the 2104 mono LP set, but I'm sure if I had a few shekels $ £, peso's, I'd probably spring for them, even know I don't have a $100,000 stereo system.heart

'Lucille ' - George's solo is incredible, I love how it sounds.

 

'Clarabella' - The band are just on it, a great example of the band rocking at the top of their game; George's guitar work, John's wailing harmonica, Paul's fabulous vocal (and screams) and Ringo beating the hell out of the drums.

 

It's this kind of material that makes me crave for anything live from Germany pre-Parlophone when they were raw or after they returned to Liverpool. I know Pete was on drums but the stories go that they had to be seen and heard to be believed. Tho even some of what we do have from Germany 1962 is up there, for example 'Nothin' Shakin'.

I just don't understand is definitely my favourite track from Live At The BBC . The triple measure gives it a light, swinging feeling and the contrast to John's longing voice is very intriguing to my mind. I also like the country feeling about it, the guitar embellishments and solo, and the stops in the drums. For some reason, although John sings it, I can imagine George singing it so well - I think it would perfectly suit his voice.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

My two favorites:

Don't Ever Change

I Wanna Be Your Man - love it even more than the original

parlance  

I enjoy Don't Ever Change, particularly George's vocals; and I Wanna Be Your Man is one of Ringo's best vocals of all of the songs he has sung.

And in the end
The love you take is equal to the love you make

Soldier Of Love

To Know Her (Is To Love Her)

Nothin’ Shakin’

Anna (Go To Him) 

Never took that much notice of Anna when I first heard it on Please Please Me but I was walking home in December 2018 with the BBC version on and I just thought “wow, what a beautiful song”

Since that day I’ve probably sung it over 100 times in the shower (Starting to sound really good as well!) and once at an abandoned train station in East Anglia.

Good times.. Sang 7 or so songs over the course of 30 minutes to an audience of zero.

Though coming from December 1962, it should be noted that on this it's Ringo on drums.
