Yes, Joe Cocker is having a bit of resurgence at the moment here. They're playing that song a lot on the radio. It's nice to see - and hear.

I like this Neil Young song, Harvest Moon;

Good video as well.

I've been listening to Sunken Condos today, the Donald Fagen album.

Here is Neil talking about mother nature in the 1970s. Fantastic song.

The last .40 seconds leaves me in awe.....

For the past week or so the BBC have been running a series of TV and radio shows about the 'Golden Age Of The Album' - celebrating some of the most iconic albums ever recorded.

This all culminates, today, in a re-recording session of The Beatles first album 'Please Please Me' by artists from more modern times. It was today, Monday 11th February 1963, that The Beatles recorded the original album in one session lasting just under 10 hours at Abbey Road Studios, making today the 50th anniversary of the recording.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/lat...ectacular.html

So today I'm mostly listening to that album. I was a bit too young in 1963 to have any real memories of the original event. Although I do have memories of The Beatles as I was growing up as a kid, I don't own any of their albums from that time. I do still have a couple of 7 inch vinyl singles from that era, bought for me at Christmas time or birthdays, but I was never a huge Beatles fan when I was growing up. Memories from that time, to me, are pretty much all still black, white, and mono. Happy memories all the same, even though I was just a little thumb sucking bystander to it all, I do remember Beatlemania - some of it quite vividly.

Thing is, listening to it now, it's amazing how good the music still sounds. How good the songs are, the simplicity of them in a way, and then to think how many musicians have been influenced by those songs, that sound, over the years - how many new bands they spawned. It's incredible really.

Here's the track listing from Please Please Me;

Side 1

1 - I Saw Her Standing There
2 - Misery
3 - Anna (Go to Him)
4 - Chains
5 - Boys
6 - Ask Me Why
7 - Please Please Me

Side 2

1 - Love Me Do
2 - P.S. I Love You
3 - Baby It's You
4 - Do You Want to Know a Secret
5 - A Taste of Honey
6 - There's a Place
7 - Twist and Shout


.... and if I had to pick a favourite track it would be 'I Saw Her Standing There' but only slightly in front of some of the others because there are some great songs there.

So here it is .... the mono version;

It's been really good listening to people talking about their favourite albums on the radio and TV shows at the BBC, then digging a few of them out and listening to them again.

Happy days

Nice deya. I was never a big Beatles fan neither but I have great admiration for George. Not only he was a good example of a nice human being but also underrated as a musician.

So, you got me listening to some of his great songs.....and his message.

Agree about George Harrison being underrated. He made some good records as a solo artist, and with the Travelling Wilburys.

I like this one, Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby, with Carl Perkins and Dave Edmunds;

I'm not sure of the actual year now but I do remember a day in what was then my home town (Wellingborough) wondering where everyone was at school after the lunch break. Turned out news had leaked that the Beatles were staying on route to somewhere in the Hind Hotel, Wellingborough so hundreds of kids were camped outside in the street. The information turned out to be false but there was no moving the army of fans. I also remember the teachers setting off from school to round 'em back up again.
