Figures I make a post from the heart that some people might read and finally think to themselves "Ah, ok, so he's only 99% douchebag" and it's like post #998.

I for one was deeply moved that at the height of your emotions, the name "Jesus" was on your mind.

You're forgiven.

And I refuse to give the Beatles any more money. Am I really missing out with these remasters?

Just replying to this after being gone all day.

That's where we differ on this. I don't think he's trying too hard; I think he's doing it on purpose. When you say forced, you are implying that he went beyond his vocal capabilities, that he's straining to sing a particular line. Perhaps it comes across that way, but I think he wanted to do it like that all along.

Do you think when George went through his sitar phase that it got old real quick?

Like I said before, if he had done an entire album like that, yeah, it would get annoying. But really, out of all his songs, we're only talking about a select few. I don't think it's as big of a deal as you do.

But wow, it really sounded bad. The panning is almost cartoonish in it. That song has to sound better in mono. The first time Paul says "Eleanor," the first syllable is centered and then the entire thing goes to the right channel. It's FUCKING DIS-TRACT-ING. So what I'm proposing in the next installment of our Beatles discussion is that we try to come to as much of a consensus as we can on which version of which album/tracks is the essential one.
Agreed; I complained about it yesterday. This would definitely be the case where the mono version would be better, but I'll say again, the 1999 remix from the Yellow Submarine songtrack is by far the best version I've heard.

I just read the end of the last thread and the Beatles and emotion and whatnot, and I completely agree with the sentiments. I read through the pitchfork reviews last night and it hit me like a ton of bricks again... I was a late-blooming Bealtes fan. Sure I knew some of the early singles that my parents had on vinyl, but I didn't really know anything past She Loves You, I Wanna Hold Your Hand, and Can't Buy Me Love until I was 19. Then I bought everything up and had a huge listening party on my own on headphones and was floored. I felt this incredible sense of nostalgia to a time that is better than now. Then Love came out, and at the end of All You Need is love there's the part where John says "this is Johnny Rhythm saying goodnight to yous all and God bless" and I was floored then, coming to true grips with the fact that there will never be any reunion. And now I'm rambling madly like NSW. And we rarely agree, but the Beatles (and the feelings wrought by the music they created) bring people together.

I was a late comer to the Beatles too, tourist. Not until the last couple of years have I really grown to love them so much more than I did before. In my (apparently) wretched musicology seminar, they were also the band most mentioned by all of us as a favorite artist, which definitely backs up your point about something about the band bringing us all together.

I couldn't even tell you when I heard The Beatles for the first time, but I'm sure my mother had some old 45s. I do remember visiting my uncle and listening to the "Red" and "Blue" compilations and being immediately drawn to the music. In the 80's, I started picking up some of their albums on cassette, and they used to have all different kinds of fucked up compilations; it took the longest time for me to figure out what was an actual album. For example, I had Hey Jude on tape and had no clue it was a damn compilation. And does anyone remember the Rock And Roll Music double set released in the mid-70's? Think of it as a glorified Beatles For Sale. I used to really dig that.

My mom's husband has the Red and Blue compilations too. And, I don't remember the Rock and Roll Music set per say, but I've seen it once or twice used on vinyl around town.
