Just been introduced to this forum by Kite from the Kate Bush forum, you could say he bought me in the transfer window. I grew up with The Beatles but it wasn't until I was around 14 that my obsession/passion began when browsing in a record shop I came across The Beatles 62-66 album, I also looked at 67-70 but weirdly recognised more tracks on 62-66 than the later album. However on my holiday with my youth club I came across 67-70 in one of the big tents with a record player. Wow hearing Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever was like hearing music from another planet. I think you have to be a teenager to get the more complex stuff the Beatles wrote. I came home from the holiday excitedly telling my brother about this magnificent album and by chance while I was away, he'd bought it, there was only one snag, on Hey Jude building up to the Na Na's it jumped so i had to put a penny on top of the needle to un-jump the record.(if only you could fix cds the same way) From that day on I've built up a collection on everything Beatles, in fact yesterday, even though I already have two versions of Sgt Pepper on cd I realised I didn't have it on vinyl so bought a copy yesterday to play on my day off tomorrow. damn no smoking emotocon.
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
