Listening to the Beatles sequentially

Postby Haole Jim » Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:22 pm

'Bout a year ago, purchased box set, "The Beatles, The Original Studio Recordings, 217 Songs Eemastered."

All 13 original studio albums (British titles and layouts), and 2 CD collection of non-album singles, total 14 CD sleeves with booklets, 16 CDs.

'Made the time ('basically takes almost a week) to listen to the whole box, in chronological (except the last 2 disks) order. Really listening, not being interrupted, thinking along with the songs.

And am continually (re-)AMAZED at those four guys' abilities, songwriting, harmonies, imagination growth, experimentation, breadth, depth, travels, accomplishments...legacy.

Anybody else a Beatles fan who has done this?

Sorry about there being no Mosrite connection in this thread-starter.

For that matter, did The Beatles even know The Ventures existed?

Been a Beatles fan since I was 13. 1962. I still listen to their music, and still love it, and miss the era.

Rubber Soul .. :-) Shoe joke aside .. One of the two albums my folks ever bought me (the other one was Electric Ladyland) .. in '64 I would have been
15 ... that's when I first became Beatles aware really . with the first singles .. I must have been older when the Hendrix album appeared (scandalous sleeve design slightly horrified parents) .

But the Beatles songbook (Guitar version) certainly got me started learning chords ... (Probably the wrong chords) Stayed a fan all the way till the end..
They were the original triple threat .. sang like angels , played great , and looked good in tight trousers ( or was that the Rutles) , no they wrote great songs lol .

I too am pretty impressed at how they changed over the years .. sign me up to this appreciation club :-)

cheers Juan
