That makes sense, but I answered the 300 point question before you changed to 1000. That's my bad. I'll do a 1000 pointer next round.

Mark, I'll rate you on your 300 pointer then.

You were correct about Hunter Davies being the author but since you were incorrect about his age at the time of release (you said that he was 26 at the time but he was 32 since he was born in 1936 and the book was released in 1968), i'm afraid that you are incorrect, you would lose 150 points if you had it.

You move 1 space to sales and releases.

Sorry, Yellow Submarine was released in 1968, 13 July 1968 to be precise. Since you don't have any points, i can't 50 points away from you, so you'll get nothing.

Andy moves 1 space to instrumentation.  

Okay, uhm, I am a  bit confused right now, I've just double checked with Joe's article on Yellow Submarine and it also says 1969:

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I see the problem, you were thinking about the album release date but since you were on a The Beatles in film tile, i was asking about the film's release date, which after double checking Wikipedia was indeed released in 1968, although i said 13 July instead of the 17 July 1968 which it was actually released on.

Very well then, i'm going to give you a harder question though.

What did The Beatles record at their first recording session for 1966?

I think it was Tomorrow Never Knows but I'm really not sure.

I'm afraid not, The Beatles recorded over some of their parts at Shea Stadium on 5 January 1966 at CTS studios.

You guys think that i should ask you how many points that you want before asking you the question or do you think that i should just give you the question and give you a set number of points.

We should decide our own point values
