I'd probably want to contribute too.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I'm not really sure what this is, but you can count me as tentatively in.

  

It's a voting for the favourite non-canon Beatlesongs (which are, I think, all the ones that didn't make it onto an official single or album) where the participants rate each one out of 10. Since this is non-canon, the turnout tends to be a bit lower. 

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.

Oh... what happens if there are songs I haven't heard? Do I have to listen to them? What if I can't find them? Can I still participate? a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Should you be interested in what recordings are included, @50yearslate, the 2017 list (which'll need updating) is included in the first post in both alphabetical and chronological order. It's basically everything that has received a legal (though not necessarily official) release that didn't feature on a Parlophone/Apple single, EP or album released between 5 October 1962 and 8 May 1970 (which is the canon).

So, think things like the Sheridan recordings, Decca audition, Star Club, the released BBC recordings, Anthology, Hollywood Bowl, Let It Be ... Naked, "Love", etc.

Obviously, the more you've heard the better your scores will be. Most of it is easily found on YouTube and/or streaming services like Spotify. Any of the trickier items you can be pointed toward should you be interested, but not having heard them all wouldn't disqualify you taking part at all - you just wouldn't score those recordings you haven't heard.

Okay, we're talking about doing this again, having a serious discussion about form and format.

The question that follows from that, which is the next step, is who's doing it? Not taking part but taking the lead.

I'm happy to update the list and come up with a format but I doubt people would want me to lead it again given my abject failure to take the 2017 through to a conclusion. Perfectly understandable, though I'd be willing if people wanted me to and were happy to trust I'd do the good job I did on the canon poll.

My main point is that it's fine to have this discussion about redoing it, and people seem very open to the idea, but we need to take the next step if this is to get beyond a discussion.

If you want to do it I'm happy for you to do it, simple as that. It is, after all, your a-hard-days-night-paul-5 poll!

I'd be happy to help run it, (which could be a feasible option to have two or perhaps three people run it?) as I did last year's canon poll so have some experience. Besides, I don't have a life anyway so time wouldn't be too much of an issue for me.

But as I've said, it's your brainchild so I would trust you to do a good job.john-lennon-salute_gif

My main point is that it's fine to have this discussion about redoing it, and people seem very open to the idea, but we need to take the next step if this is to get beyond a discussion.

We will take this next step - there is enough preliminary interest, all we need is to decide upon a few small things. That's all they are, small.

If we want to do this, it will happen. We are a very stubborn community and if we want something, we will get it!george-martin

Because it will take a while to listen through and find everything on the list, we should start agreeing on what's on the list to listen to.

I'm presuming it would be what was on last time, plus the 2 deluxe albums we got in the last 2 years (perhaps we should wait to see if we get a deluxe Abbey Road as well?)

Should anyone have/be able to put together a list of the dates given the new Pepper and WA deluxe additions, I can work that out. Unfortunately my digital copies of the books are on an external hard drive I can't find the right lead for right now!!! blue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanie

As to whether to include a deluxe AR should it arrive as expected, we can decide nearer the voting on that last third of their career.
