  1. Dunno much about the Beatles but enjoyed your show. You should know though that if you have an album question, seek PQ Ribber before doing anything else!

  2. Congrats on 5 years!! I play Tapestry as a background sound experience – much like i do with ‘the other side’, if that helps.

  3. the original meet the beatles, us release is about 12 minutes a side. short lps were common. the beatles story is a rip off. almost unlistenable esp knowing what we do in 2016. awful.

  4. Thanks, Jimbo! I would check in with PQ but it looks like he beat me to it!

    Thanks to you also, PQ! That does help actually, knowing Tapestry is being heard. Yeah, it’s good as background while you’re doing other things, and The Other Side too.

    OK, so you remember The Beatles Story – maybe it’s not a Mandela effect thing. Aw, who knows!

  5. Dare I mention that I am absolutely convinced I heard a song in my dream which doesn’t exist in our reality! So weird, it happened to me in the Summer (and in the height of my freaking out on the Mandela Effect stuff). I was in a record store in my dream and listening to an album by a known artist (won’t mention names)… but I heard this brilliant very catchy pop tune which I had stuck in my head for several hours after I woke up! I swear I never heard the tune before and wished I had access to some means of trying to capture it somehow (even if I had hummed the melody on a recording)! But I was on vacation with the family and by later that day the song was completely lost to my memory!!
