Hmmm, no tracks should actually play unless you press the "play" button - as is the case on the browsers I use (Safari and Firefox). I'll check this end to see if the coding is OK.
Great track by the way - what words are bleeped out though?
Hi Al - How ya doin' mate?
You're right, this is a great track brought to the Forum by HotRockinJohnny (welcome by the way HRJ) and having listened to it, it sounds like the word 'damn' has been 'electronically erased'. Back in the sixties, mild expletives such as 'damn' (remember Joe South's 'Games People Play' although the word wasn't bleeped out, the lyrics went " . . . . and you don't give a da da da da da da . . . .") and hell were frowned upon. Goodness knows what word was bleeped out on 'A Boy Named Sue' by Johnny Cash though!
It's a far cry from today's 'anything goes' attitude but bleeping out words back then had a naivety that was kinda exciting and fun.
By the way, I think HRJ hit the play button on my track and without hitting the stop button on mine, hit the play button on his own track. That way, he would hear the two tracks playing simultaneously.

Thanks for the welcome, authurlee...
I'm not sure if that 'bleep' was intentional or not?
But, I agree with authurlee - the word was most likely 'damn'
Also, I remember when Jim Croce released the song '' Bad, Bad Leroy Brown'' in the 70's, it was kind of a big deal that he sung that Leroy Brown was ''the baddest man in the whole damn town''. Nowadays, it's no big deal at all.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus

The End: Hey all - come along to the 12th Annual Beatle Forum meet up - it's in The Grapes at midday on Saturday 24th August! Will be great to see some new faces as I'm fed up with the old ones!
