    I love the SPLHCB movie because it's so representative of the abstract concepts The Beatles were reaching for with their album.

    You mean the movie with the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton and Aerosmith?

    I like a lot of his '70s stuff, but don't know much after McCartney II.

    Pete Best was my favourite Beatle (not counting Stu Sutcliffe).

    Has anyone acquired the new remasters yet?

    I'm just wondering how 'improved' the sound quality is that I need to replace all my other CD's (Or just hold on to them for completest sake).

    They keep repackaging and regurgitating the same old stuff, and yet, what are they waiting for regarding an official release of a Let It Be DVD?

    The same author did the great McCartney decade-by-decade retrospectives I posted earlier. He also mentions other stuff in the vault here;

    Those were good articles; I'm going to have to look around at some of the other stuff on that site.

    On the remasters topic, the only one I got was Help! I just couldn't justify getting ones that I already have on CD/tape/whatever. CD's are so expensive! Actually, I was thinking about hitting up the used CD store for some of the old ones in about a month, haha.

    But the new ones do sound great.

    I still haven't given up on the thought of a mono boxset though they all seem to have sold out. Are they vastly different from the stereo versions after remastering?

    Anyone got that new McCartney @ Shea Stadium set yet?

    If not, maybe this is more your style - and it's free to listen to if you sign up at Wolfgang's Vault;

    The concert DVD at Citi Field is fantastic. It's the whole show with no cuts between songs for interviews like Paul's previous concert DVD's. The editing is less MTVish fast passed and focuses more on what the band is playing with less crowd shots. The John and George tributes are two of the many highlights. I've seen Paul 7 times live and this is one show I regret not flying out to the east coast to see.

    We had my girlfriends sister and husband over Saturday and played the Sgt Pepper and Abbey Road downloads for rock band. Pretty fun.
