"...Their first (Philadelphia) appearance came on Sept. 2, 1964 at Convention Hall, the former civic center located in University City.  
The Beatles played a 12-song set that lasted about 30 minutes and included "All My Loving," "She Loves You," and "A Hard Day's Night."
Tickets to the show cost $2.50 to $5.50...

The Beatles and their influence on modern music.

Modern Renaissance man Steven Wilson claims to not particularly like the Beatles. 

For context, Wilson said the same thing about Genesis, implicitly early Genesis.   His fans appear to believe that he was heavily influenced by early Genesis.  Wilson does admire Peter Gabriel's solo work.  I am a fan of some early Genesis but not most of it.   I believe that mid-60s Beatles was pathbreaking material even if some of it simply reflected new directions in contemporary music at the time.  

All that to say, I find Wilson's claim odd.  When I listen to early Porcupine Tree, I hear mid-60s Beatles all over it.  In particular, the albums Even Less and Lightbulb Sun.   Must be my hyper-active imagination.

It's here and been played.  This new mix is a real treat.  Nearly all of the glitches in the original mix have been fixed also.  It seems that Preston's organ tracks in the original mix were subject to tape wow and flutter with noticeable speed changes in the organ parts.  This has been corrected and it is now smooth and brought forward and more into the mix.

I played Here Comes The Sun on the 50th, a 1970 3rd UK press, a 1976 US Capitol press and the 1979 MFSL press and the CD to be complete.  For the old mix, the UK was the best on vinyl and the CD was pretty damn good.  If this is just another Beatles album to you, stick with the CD.  If it is one of your favorite Beatles albums, then this is an awesome mix and worth getting.  Vocals are now centered, clear as a bell, the drums are crisper and again the organ is steady and now more involved which fills out things even more, even though it was always there to begin with.  Very well balanced and smoother, yet because of the clarity, the fuzzy guitar parts are even more fuzzy and sharper at the same time.  You can even distinguish the tambourine that someone was banging along with on some of the tracks.  And on one track that I forget which, I now here someone playing a banjo if I'm not mistaken.   

The songs now sound pretty(er) and engage you in a whole new way.  This new mix is what I will listen to when I play this album from hereon in.

Someone else is going to have to review the CD.  I hope that it is as nice as the vinyl and with all things Beatles, it should be.



Have not got into any of the bonus stuff yet.

Mine will be here Monday on vinyl.  Got two copies.  One to rip and flip the other to sit sealed.  Maybe.  I've already read of some flaws.

Ever done that thing where a single speaker gets the + line feed from the left and from the right (send one to the - input and the other to the +)? Anything that's playing in the center is negated and not heard and volumes of the other components of the tune are heard at a louder volume based on how far they're panned to either side.

IIRC, at the beginning of Purple Haze the music is basically center, so very quiet, and then I heard Jimi clear his throat and say something quietly, since his vocal had been panned hard to one side. Caught me by surprise, and this was more than 40 yrs ago so I might have been Foxy Lady. Not sure, but it was fun to feed that into a a single central speaker and see what comes out.
 
Yes.  It was petty interesting.  You can sorta do the same thing with 3 channel surround.  Put your receiver in that mode and turn off the center speaker.  Not quite the same, but pretty close.  I mostly listen to one channel at a time when hunting down tiny clicks and pops for removal since I do nearly all of it by hand, one tic at a time.

I must say that since my new old cartridge got put into use and it is really dialed in, I'm hearing a lot more of hoots and hollers and attaboys by the players during songs for good licks and stuff that got picked up by the equipment mics in the room separate from the vocal mics.  They fall into the once you finally hear these things you will always here them or at least listen for them.  Especially with The Doors and as you mentioned, Hendrix and also with Abbey Road on a couple of songs IIRC.  Some Stones as well.  Bands that did their takes live in the studio with everyone present and playing at the same time.  These little things have pretty much gone away with multi track boards where things are done one instrument at a time.

Oh yeah, Beatlemania was real.  I seriously doubt that the girls were screaming for the cameras, in fact I would say that for sure having been all through it, from beginning til present.  TV was still a nascent primitive thing back then.  I don't think very many ordinary people knew that the camera was only recording when the red light came on.  There was no way to see yourself on camera after the fact back then.  Just watch A Hard Day's Night.  The Stones had girls screaming, too. But not as intense and it did go away for them after the mid 60's.  It never went away for the Beatles once it started.  Find the Shea stadium concert. 

Anyway ...

The long awaited 50th of Abbey Road is up and ready for pre sale.  Amazon seems to have the best price having looked around.  Giles and company have done an outstanding job so far taking in their Sgt. Pepper and The Beatles (white album) to account.  Only a purest would find fault with these efforts.  They have their proverbial hands full with Abbey Road.  As good as it sounds which is very good, it was a sloppily done final mix.  I've listened to the whole album one channel at a time at least twice.  I'm wondering how they go about fixing the glitches or leave them in because they either can't do anything about them or decide that it is best to leave them in for the overall sound.  One of these days I'll listen to some of the stuff in reverse just for S & G's.  Never really cared much back in the day.  Too complicated, plus it wasn't good for the vinyl.  Now I can take a rip and with a mouse click, reverse it and play it back at regular speed, or slower if I like.

I remember when it came out.  Senior year in HS, Philly.  My English teacher, Mr. Ebbers brought it in to class and played it from beginning to end (48 minutes plus time to flip it over) on the standard HS issue of the day all in one mono phonograph player.  We had only heard what was on the radio up until then.  It took the whole period and then some.  No one left until it was over.  Everyone was late to the next class but no one cared.  It was morning, 2nd period, maybe first.  It was his first class of the day because he was still moving things around when we got into class and hadn't played it yet.  I remember where in the building the classroom is.  It was truly a group experience.  It was all that was anyone's mind for the rest of the day. 

One of the few, maybe the only album that I knew where I was the first time I heard it.

Two nights ago dreamed I was standing in a small club (like the Cavern) watching middle-aged McCartney perform with a small band. As I turned to the exit I saw, in the back, a young Paul smoking, standing alone. I left, got in my car, and before I left the lot I thought "you should go back in there and hug him and say thanks." And then the alarm went off and it was time to get to ready for work.
