This is the point I was trying to make. I am staggered that quality songs never made Lp's Rain was a B Side wasn't it?.
I thought Howard's thoughts on what George did on Within You Without You explained why it was ground breaking and never thought of the recurring use of children's imagery as so clearly part of the fabric of the Lp but it is there for all to see.
Its tricky to start changing Pepper as like a Mona Lisa it is what it is You can`t mess around with masterpieces for it is in hindsight
George Martin was`nt to happy about the White album being a double
Pepper is masterpiece and it should be left alone in my humble
I hope we get all the shanigans with the 50th anniversary of the White album
I do think Rain should have been on Revolver though instead of Yellow sub ... Bloody love Steve Hillage I think he mapped out his career on It`s All To Much ... And he even doe`s Getting Better !
I didn't know Steve Hillage also did Getting Better, i'll play it on youtube later. Two of my friends went to see him in Edinburgh years ago and he bought them fish and chips, what a great bloke. And yes Pothos , Rain was the b side to Paperback Writer , they filmed the promo at Chiswick park but it seems they knocked down the greenhouse and now their is only a plaque. I love the bit in the promo of Rain , if i remember correctly , Ringo is walking towards the camera and in the background peering through the gate are fans watching excitedly.
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
