Probably the best thing to come out of MTV:



All of the tracks are good, but "If It's Over" and "I'll Be There" might be the best. Even the dancepop songs like Emotions sound great with a real band instead of the stupid electronic stuff :doe:

All good tracks, but their sound has evolved a LOT over the years. They are some incredibly talented musicians.

Speaking of CD burning..... in the early 2000's I started following a NOLA band called the Radiators, who were amazing......

They had an open taping policy so dudes would hook up right to the sound board at their shows and up load to the Live Music Archive https://archive.org/details/etree .

We had a email list server that acted similar to a forum, where people (including myself eventually) would offer up "B&P's" . This is short for blanks and postage.

Basically a person would send blank disks and a postage paid return envelope and we would burn the show and send it back.

As a result I have every Radiators show I ever attended (35+) on CD. Which for most bands would be redundant, but these guys never played the same show twice.

33 years, 4410 shows, 1671 songs, 1149 venues, 444 cities, 878 downloads & 582 live audio shows

I was also into torrents for a while and got some amazing bootleg stuff ranging from Beatles, Cream, Eric Clapton, Ray Charles, Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix......recording sessions and obscure shows.

The Esher Demos. This refers to the collection of acoustic demo recordings made by John, Paul, and George (there is no indication Ringo was present) at George's bungalow home (named Kinfauns) located in Esher, England. Here, in late May 1968, after returning from their trek to India and prior to going back into the recording studio to work on their next album (in June), the boys got together and presented to each other the songs they had each recently come up with. So, using George's Ampex 4-track Reel-to-Reel recorder, they laid down these mostly acoustic demos consisting primarily of early versions of songs that would later become the 'White album', as well as some that would be later released on respective solo albums ('Junk', 'Child of Nature' which was later re-worked to become 'Jealous Guy', and 'Circles'), and a few that were never officially released ('What's the New Mary Jane', 'Sour Milk Sea', 'Not Guilty'). It is a unique and wonderful opportunity and such a historical document to hear these early demo versions. One can imagine them just sitting around sharing their songs with each other, getting feedback, etc. When listening, you can get the feeling of having your own personal, casual and informal concert with them just sitting around your living room. It's quite remarkable. In some cases, the songs are still quite rough, in others, they are very similar to what the song would sound like on the finished album. Most intriguing are the early acoustic versions of songs that became much more electric or 'rockier' (like 'Revolution', 'Everybody's Got Something...Monkey', 'Yer Blues', 'While My Guitar...Weeps', etc). It has been reported that 27-28 songs were recorded over a couple days, after which George Martin had several copies of an acetate of these sessions pressed and distributed to each Beatle for their perusal at home to work with before heading into the studio in the following weeks.

Here is a cool article chronicling the recording https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... ide-629178


And, I also have this (both recordings):

Paul McCartney, Donovan, and Mary Hopkin Jamming in the studio 1969 - "The Postcard Sessions" vinyl and CD versions

This short little gem makes the grade on two accounts - it's a stellar recording with a good cast, and it's never been officially released. This is an informal jam session during the making of Mary Hopkin's "Postcard" LP. It happens to be a fun set to listen to. There's lots of interplay between Donvan and Paul, and they all seem to be having a blast.

The two versions presented here are notable in that the vinyl version accounted for the material's first appearance anywhere. The CD reissue is placed here for comparison, both in sound quality and for any differences in mix.

Cool. Yea, I have the Esher Demo's and they're quite :neat: I really wish Harrison had recorded Sour Milk Sea. It would have been a great one, imo. I've never heard Jackie Lomax's version, who George gave the song to.

That McCartney, Donovan, and Mary Hopkin Jam sounds cool. I'm sure you know that Harrison played lead guitar on Donovan's Sunshine Superman track and he accompanied the Beatles to Rishakesh in India and while there taught Lennon his finger picking style of acoustic guitar playing which you can hear him using on Julia. :themoreyouknow:

Yeah..... George has become my favorite Beatle...... I was always drawn to John because of his attitude and Paul because of his talent..... but George was an Unsung hero and probably the best all around human being in the Fab Four.....plus I loved a lot of his solo work and of course his stint as Nelson Wilbury......

Agreed about George, and I also think Ringo was the most underrated musician, by everyone except other drummers that is. He rocked on the skins. There was a reason that the Beatles persued him for a year before he agreed to join the band.
