Have you listened to them in mono yet?
Only select songs through YouTube. When I was younger I wanted to get the mono box as well, but that never came about and I’m pretty much satisfied with the stereo box. Although some day I might pick the other one up just for the hell of it.Have you listened to them in mono yet?
The one thing I love most about The Beatles is that they were constantly pushing themselves as artists. Yes, Revolver is most famous for all the studio trickery they threw in it, but the songs are also just really frickin' good. The melody are great, their voices are crisp and clean (even Ringo, who's honestly a better singer than is given credit for), and a lot of the lyrics are poignant and hit home. Obviously their music is more 'simple' than what came after them, but even so, they feel really intricately woven pieces of music.I found out that this band is more than just sweet happy sing a long songs or experimental/influential.
I have selected more than 100 (the favs from all the stuff I've heard) and need to bring it down.A Beatles Top 50....interesting.
I might post mine too.
To be honest, I had not done the anthology CD's. We could still do this.So you’ve done the anthology sets and that sort of thing too?
Looking forward to the top 50. Also are you going to check out any solo material?
The Anthologies are really cool, but I'd only recommend them if you were interested in some songs The Beatles didn't release on the studio albums or if you really like experiencing some behind-the-scenes looks at how the songs evolved. They're really more for completionists. The original 12 UK albums + the US Magical Mystery Tour + Past Masters is really all one needs if you're just starting out with them. But it's up to you, like I said, those three are really cool, just not necessary IMO.To be honest, I had not done the anthology CD's. We could still do this.
