If I'm not mistaken, the Little Willies features Norah Jones on piano and vocals. Norah is the daughter of Ravi Shankar who was, of course, good friends with George Harrison. That's all I've got for you really.

meanmistermustard: I don't really feel comfortable buying bootlegs either. One day, hopefully, it will be available to me and I can have that insight into such an interesting time, thank you for describing it to me.

I'm listening to What's the New Mary Jane from Anthology 3 and it's a little....unsettling.

I'm trying to figure out the nuts and bolts of how this place works.  If you're quoting someone, does your response always reside in the quote box, or is there some way to comment above or below the box?

After clicking "quote" and adding your own stuff, just highlight your own text (by left-clicking and dragging) and then un-click the "blockquote" button on the toolbar. Simple!

Normal everyday people think there were only around 20 beatles albums to listen to in total. So how come i've got a backlog of updated and remastered bbc, hamburg, live in concert, and studio outtakes to listen to? Still getting thru day 31 of January 1969!neil-aspinall

American Pie - Don McLean. Actually, I have a great story about this song. So, this is my family's all time favourite song - but we don't like listening to it all that often. So, between CD's on a recent road trip, the radio station was midway through playing it. I crank it, my mother starts to lower it before she gets it, then my brother tells me to lower it, before he realises what song it was. And, when we heard it was at the end of the song, we all let out a simultaneous groan. Ah, I love roadtrips.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8One of our favorites too, Sun king. We bought the CD and it's the only song on it we listen to.

"American Pie" = one of the first dozen singles I ever owned, when I was about 4 or 5!

(I'm trying the Quote button as suggested by Vonbontee)

To my ears, "American Pie" is like "Within You Without You":  one verse or so too long.

The full length American Pie is too long whereas the radio/single edit is too short. So somewhere between those two. A great song that survived being butchered horrifically by Madonna.

And So It Goes--Billy Joel

beautiful love song a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that."

"What happens to them?" insisted Milo.

"Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars."

Grateful Dead -- 5/24/72 Lyceum, London

If you want a dose of almost-Dead Beatles covers, give this one a try:

http://www.archive.org/details.....ngTour2011

Last spring, Furthur played all of Abbey Road, one song (or medley) per show. They played "Come Together" as the first song in a concert, "Something" as the second song in the next show, Maxwell's as the third song in the following show, and so on. One of the audience tapers compiled them into the complete Abbey Road, so to speak...and unfortunately got the song sequence not quite right when he got to the second side of the album. If you're streaming, you can manually fix it by just clicking on the right song, of course.

I'm a Deadhead in my spare time, and as the Dead have a long history of covering Beatles songs, this little gimmick last spring by Furthur (for the uninitiated, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead, with a little help from their friends) hit my Dead/Beatles sweet spot...

I was wondering, have you ever heard of birdy.? somehow, she's a big discover of a few weeks in my community, now.

she's bloodly good indeed.! I've almost died when discovered she's 16. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 I've fallen in love. her voice's so sensetive, but not childish or anything. no. her music's really calm and relaxing, but pretty depresive in some parts - just for snowy and dark evenings like I have now. please, check out some of these and say what you think and did you know her.

Lately I've been listening to these a lot: Lucille, Young Blood, Nothin' Shakin', The Hippy Hippy Shake, Glad All Over, Ooh! My Soul, Don't Ever Change, and Sure To Fall (In Love With You) 

I am very happy, and one reason is because I have The Beatles. Thank you!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
