Sky arts had a lot of Lennon stuff on at the weekend. As much as all four individual Beatles have released some great stuff as solo artists over the years , nothing in my opinion reaches the standard of when they were Beatles. The only album i have of Lennon was the compilation , Shaved Fish which is great. So i've never owned Imagine but decided to record The Imagine documentary which is part surreal and half fiction but also shows Lennon recording . I'm really struggling with it. I've still not finished watching this which is not a good sign , i found on some it i was fast forwarding, i found Yoko's bits really annoying, and yes there some good songs on this , Jealous Guy is a stand out , Imagine has been played to death, i've yet to get to How Do You Sleep which saddens me that George played on this and the song is so mean spirited . I certainly will not be forking out for this album and especially the 7 discs version .
Has anyone else watched this documentary and do people rate this album highly?
If you had seen the Let It Be Movie when it came out in the theaters (as I did) you would understand why George participated in "How Do You Sleep." While working on the song "I've Got a Feeling" Paul chews George out for unbending the guitar string too quickly. This humiliating scene (for George) was left in the movie for all to see.
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
