Some years ago I used to sit in the dining room with my two grandsons I'd have a beer and play some music and talk with them.I used to play the Beatles quite often and they knew most of the songs.One night i said "a pound to the boy who can tell me the name of the next song"James the eldest no problem named it.Lets have another go grandad,then it was thats four pound you owe me.Then he came up with The Ballad Of John And Yoko I knew there was no way he would know that I got up and had a look around where he was standing and there was the CD cover with the play list on it,it's no wonder he knew them.

Hi Jim
Reading your article about the Beatles you mentioned that the Odeon cinema had been pulled down, which made quite sad reading as it was at the Odeon that I saw Bill Haley and the Comets in concert .when they toured over here for the very first time. What are they going to build there on the vacant site? Regarding the Beatles I never was much a fan of them. I remember back in the 60's I was on leave with some of the other lads from Liverpool and after the pubs closed at 3 pm we went down to Nems in Whitechapel. I started looking through the Elvis LP's, why I don't know, as I always brought the latest ones back from the States, when the lads starting ribbing me about buying Elvis stuff, and that he was history. The usual crap, anyway one of them asked how many Beatles records did I have, to which I replied none. The next thing I knew I was at the counter with a copy of "Beatles for Sale" in my hand whilst the rest of them were telling the girl that I wanted to buy it. To this day I still have the LP. I could tell you that I met the Beatles in the Cavern just after they came back from Hamburg, but everybody in Liverpool could tell you same story. However in my case it is true.
Regards
John

Never owned a Beatles record as I did not like them ... but it was not possible to escape from their music no matter which ship or port or coast you were on. So ----- just out of curiosity I did the quiz 18 from 22 and only one was a guess. Sneaky devils weren't they. If the question had been to name any of their song titles I would not have got any more than 3 or 4.

I guess there are quite a few songs of the Beatles that have not been heard by many yet,here is a site that gives you some of the unpublished songs of the Beatles!
It takes a bit of time loading some of the many pages,but I persevered and enjoyed the lot!
Some of course are a nit old so the sound is not of the best!
Hope some will enjoy as I have done!
There are 2 Clips per page !
Cheers

Bob, It has been suggested by the experts that the Beatles music will be listened to for at least another 200 years, By most people my own youngest lad 26 years has everyone of there C.D.s and he is not alone youngsters the world over enjoy listening to there music, My opinion only but for me John Lennon was the Beatles, Imagine that a working class hero is something to be Terry. :thumbsup:

Anyone I.D. Her and her claim to fame, This could go in double quick time and then again maybe not Terry. :thumb_ship2:

Terry, I don't think any expertise would be needed to reach that conclusion. The music plus the myth and legend makes a very powerful statement in the survival of the band.

Vern, A few facts for you on The Small Faces, A band I like very much,
They where managed by Don Arden...........Sharon Osborn's Father.
The band got there name from a song by the Yard birds, 8 Mile High.
They changed there name from the Small Faces to The Faces.
They broke up in 1969, And where fronted by Peter Frampton,
They still hold the record audience doing a live gig in Lichtenstein, A total of 96 Souls.
There former manager took all there outfits from them which they acquired free on Carnaby Street.
There biggest hit , Ichycoo Park, No 1 UK/USA. If you have an original copy with the etching for school kids, Don't drop out, Hang out, Worth a fortune.
Your now checking your old 45s like I did Regards Terry. :rolleyes:

Looks like a 'Sloop' Terry, but still don't know its significance unless it's the 'John D' as in the song

She is the Schooner Carroll A. Deering Ted!

Carroll A. Deering was a five-masted commercial schooner that was found run aground off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, in 1921. Its crew was missing. The Deering is one of the most written-about maritime mysteries in history, with claims that it was a victim of the Bermuda Triangle, although the evidence points towards a mutiny or possibly piracy.
