The Beatles (reprise)

I'm listening to All Things Must Pass on headphones. After Imagine and Plastic Ono Band, it's my favourite album by the quartet. Awesome album.
I love, love, love "Isn't It A Pity".

I haven't listened to that for at least five years! "It's really Elvislution..."
Upthread some folks were talking about live albums...and yes I've got a copy of The Who Live at Leeds and it's fantastic!
I managed to go to one concert in my life that was turned into a live album...Bruce Cockburn's "Circles in the Stream". It was recorded over two concerts at Massey Hall in April, 1977. If you hear the guy chearing up in the front row of the first balcony that was me.
I had Live at Leeds on vinyl, cassette, and CD. Twice on vinyl, but they kept wearing out, I played it so often. It's the only album by The Who that I could ever stand.
Listening to Johnny Nash and Jimmy Cliff tonight. On headphones!!! Awesome.
Isn't it great to discuss music instead of all the politics around this place?
I renew my call for a Beatles forum on babble.
I can't believe we've gone almost five months without discussion.
I still don't like Paul McCartney much. I ordered Ringo's Greatest Hits (!!!) a while back, and it's, well... enough said. Plastic Ono Band and All things Must Pass get played often here, still. The George Harrison movie (parts I and II) is shown on TMN at least once every few months - it's awesome. Ringo makes a surprise appearance while Harrison is being interviewed in the movie, and he's hilarious.
Winston, you asked upthread whether Steely Dan is a "real band" since they have studio stuff instead of live stuff.
Actually, they do their studio stuff live. Search YouTube and you'll find it. I love Steely Dan! They're an amazing, amazing band, and if you watch their live performances, they're incredible. I just realized a few months ago that they did a tour LAST YEAR, and had a Toronto date last July. I wish so badly that I'd known. I'd have bought scalped tickets just to see them, since they generally sell out a half hour after they go on sale. I've never seen them live in person, and that's a very sad thing.
I do think they are a real band, but definitely one which focused on the studio, and building their sound around their session musicians.
