  1. For some reason I have pretty much everything but never seem to have bought Beatles for Sale and Help!

    I don't plan on getting the Capitol set, I've got most of the American versions on record and I don't have those red and blue sets on cd but probably won't get them. I've got the blue one on record, anyhow. I really want to start getting nice versions of the original records now but I'm broke, lol! I picked up all my Beatles records at flea markets for under $5 and most are pretty bad.

  2. I recently purchased the Sun Records box set. Great stuff. Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins,Johnny Cash, BB King, and many more, when they were just kids. It's a good buy.

    I've got to check that out. My obsession lately has been all that early rock and roll, r&b, blues, rockabilly type stuff.

  3. It's so hard to decide! The first seven are definitely my favorites forever but the rest change all the time.

    I Want to Hold Your Hand

  4. I like "I'll Stand By You" by The Pretenders:

    Oh, why you look so sad?

    Tears are in your eyes

    Come on and come to me now

    Don’t be ashamed to cry

    Let me see you through

    ’cause I’ve seen the dark side too

    When the night falls on you

    You don’t know what to do

    Nothing you confess

    Could make me love you less

    I’ll stand by you

    I’ll stand by you

    Won’t let nobody hurt you

    I’ll stand by you

    So if you’re mad, get mad

    Don’t hold it all inside

    Come on and talk to me now

    Hey, what you got to hide?

    I get angry too

    Well I’m a lot like you

    When you’re standing at the crossroads

    And don’t know which path to choose

    Let me come along

    ’cause even if you’re wrong

    I’ll stand by you

    I’ll stand by you

    Won’t let nobody hurt you

    I’ll stand by you

    Take me in, into your darkest hour

    And I’ll never desert you

    I’ll stand by you

    And when...

    When the night falls on you, baby

    You’re feeling all alone

    You won’t be on your own

    I’ll stand by you

    I’ll stand by you

    Won’t let nobody hurt you

    I’ll stand by you

    Take me in, into your darkest hour

    And I’ll never desert you

    I’ll stand by you

    I’ll stand by you

    Won’t let nobody hurt you

    I’ll stand by you

    Won’t let nobody hurt you

    I’ll stand by you

  5. Here's a few that I like that haven't been mentioned yet:

    David Bowie - Hunky Dory

    The Band - Music From Big Pink

    The Velvet Underground - I like both Loaded and The Velvet Underground and Nico the best

    Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

    And check out Neil Young, The Allman Brothers, Steely Dan, and Cream.

  6. Right now I'm reading The Beatles by Bob Spitz and I'm in the part where the boys are still in school. I'm a bit confused by how the education system works in England. It appears to be different than it is here in the States. It seems like students must pass tests to move on to each level and they don't have to go as long as we do here. I was hoping someone might explain it to me in more detail. Also, is it still the same today as it was in the Beatles' youth?

    Thanks :cool:
