Many artists from Clapton to Nirvana have done unplugged albums/ sets so what would be your picks for an album of acoustic Beatles songs or alternatively, songs you'd like to see played acoustically.

To start you off, here's some of their acoustic numbers:

Two Of Us , Blackbird , Yesterday , Girl, Michelle , Here Comes The Sun , While My Guitar Gently Weeps (anthology) Norwegian Wood , If I Needed Someone , I'm Looking Through You .

I would also love to hear acoustic versions of In My Life , Ticket To Ride , Something and Let It Be .

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

The Esher '68 demos. If Apple develop another braincell, or don't kill the one that came up with the 'Pepper' box, they might realise the potential of those.
