Well, now that I bought the U.S. Revolver  I now own all the U.S. albums except for The Beatles Story and I did a show on it, so I have the album on a backup CD copy of the episode. Next up will be the George Harrison Apple box set and the Dark Horse set... Christmas oughta be fun. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Nice one.  Is there any particular reason you didn't get the U.S. box - or did you already have a lot of them?

Didn't have the money to buy the box set, but I could buy one album a month when I got paid, which is what I did. Plus, I already had the first 4 U.S. albums when I got the '04 box set release, and wasn't up for buying them again.

Just got this in the mail from Amazon yesterday.

Listened to disc 1 on the way to work and will check out disc 2 on the way home. Track 2 on disc 1 was a pleasant surprise. I had never heard this cover before and it is quite good- soulful R&B. Duane's guitar playing on it is very nice. I'll post it in the covers thread.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Bought 8 classical CDs for a coupla bucks apiece today - various longhairs including Beethoven piano sonatas, Mozart/Haydn/Mahler symphonies, ballets by Chopin and  Profokiev and others, a symphonic poem by Rimsky-Korsakov, and (yay!) Berlioz' "Symphonie Fantastique", which I was hoping to find a version of someday. (I better like it)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Longhairs?

I have around 400 classical CDs - went through a 'phase' around 15-20 years ago :)

What penguin?

[All i can hear is John saying "that penguin" the same way he said "that little old man" in the train compartment in AHDN.]

"I told you everything I could about me, Told you everything I could" ('Before Believing' - Emmylou Harris)

Ha ha - the top album in the post - Keepin' the Summer Alive.  They are in some sort of weather sphere keeping warm in the snow and that is a penguin in front watching them.

I'm going through that phase now! I just buy whatever I find used, and some of it I like enough to keep playing.

(Referring to classical music as "long-haired music" is old-fashioned slang - it dates back to decades before the Beatles revived the popularity of men growing hair to their collars and below! I'm fond of using ridiculously outdated language on occasion!)

I was originally going to post this on the Christmas thread, but I am not going to celebrate Christmas with my mom's side of the family until the 28TH, so I can't truthfully say "what did you get for Christmas?" yet.

On CD:

(I ended up giving the Johnny Cash album to my older sister, because I already had it.)

 

On vinyl:

(Venus And Mars is the recent reissue.  I already have a 1975 copy.)

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016.

I Bought a Lot of Albums these past few days

The Ramones-The Sire Years Box Set which has The Ramones, Leave Home, Rocket to Russia, Road to Ruin, End of The Century and Pleasant Dreams

 The Beatles in Mono (CD) and i am pretty sure we all know whats in that

The Yes Box Set 1969-1987 which has everything from their first album up to Big Generator

 Exile On Main Street (CD)

 Axis:Bold as Love (CD) and now i have all of Jimi's Albums with His Experience Band

 The new Houses of The Holy Remaster (CD)

Paul McCartney's RAM (CD)

and Finally Led Zeppelin 1 and 2 (CD)

It was mainly from money i rechieved over the holidays

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.
