Ok...? haha! Well thanks again for finding the video I originally inquired about. I'd love to see the full Let It Be movie someday.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Now you mention Holmes SunKing (and yes, I'm going offtopic) which compilation do you recommend me? I read Holmes in Spanish when I was very young, and now I want to do it in English, but I can't find in Mexico any decent Complete Sherlock Holmes edition. So I might order one from Amazon. Which one do you have? I mean, if you have any.

I have both Volumes of Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, which has all 56 short Stories and all 4 Holmes novels. All the stories are worth a read, but the 56 stories are divided in 5 groups (sorry that this is extremely off topic and technical, but bear with me, please): Adventures of SH (SH is Holmes, live with it), Memoirs of SH, The Return of SH, The Last Bow, and The Casebook of SH. And the 4 novels Are A Study In Scarlett, Sign of Four, Hound of the Baskervilles and The Valley of Fear.

Now here's the thing. You need to read the Memoirs before the The Return, but if you can't get the CNAS mentioned above, you should start with Adventures, and move chronologically (the order listed above). In terms of his novels, you should start with Hound of The Baskervilles. It's his best novel. I hope I haven't completely overwhelmed you with info. (A quick check of Amazon.com shows both volumes together going for $10, so, it's probably the most cost effective way.) If you need any more Holmes related details, just pop me a PM. Holmes is one of my great hobbies, learning about him, learning about Conan Doyle… fascinating.

Thanks MeanMisterMustard.. but I'm not a big fan of e-books yet.

 

Thank you for the info SunKing, I *do* get the technical stuff because I read many novels and short stories, but not all of them. And since I'm biliterate in both English and Spanish, I refuse to read books originally written in English in Spanish. I might get some books in Amazon for my master's degree so I'm including some Holmes there a-hard-days-night-john-2

um... okay.. so back to the topic, I really liked that video, thank you for sharing! I had never seen it before. I wonder if people often waited outside the studio to see them coming and going.

I would be stunned if there was a day when people did not wait outside. Check out George's song "Apple Scruffs" from All Things Must Pass.

Yeah that was a stupid question, I'm not sure what compelled me to ask it. I remember reading about them. I guess I just wonder... what the whole spectacle looked like. Oh, what I would do to take a trip back 45 years or so.....

I forgot about that song though! It's been awhile since I've listened to All Things Must Pass. Maybe this calls for a George-fest over here.

Oh my gosh, not a stupid question at all. If you wonder what "the whole spectacle looked like", enter Apple Scruffs into a Google Images search. There are some pretty cool pictures in there.

And yeah, a George-fest is never a bad idea. I'll be holding one on 25 February.a-hard-days-night-george-10

The "Apple Scruffs" were a group of young (mostly) females who stood outside Abbey Road whenever the Beatles were there. Probably a few went to Cavendish, I guess. They stayed there to see the boys. Two were used for the Past Masters (I think) version of Across The Universe. On All Things Must Pass, George's salute to the fans, got released, a jaunty upbeat tune, which Mith loves. Hope this helps.

The Apple Scruffs, or their actions at least, were also the inspiration for Paul's She Came In Through The Bathroom Window -and wiki has an entry on Apple Scruffs with a few more details.

scruff2

n
1. Informal an untidy scruffy person
2. Informal a disreputable person, ruffian
3. another name for scum [3]
 
Sounds a bit harsh, but in regard to the Apple Scruffs, scruff is a term of endearment.
