The new Beatles record....

I was skeptical. Who couldn't be? A new Beatles record -sounds like a cash cow. Then I heard George Martin was involved, then it came out and got great reviews from everyone -and I mean even those cynical free indie weeklies.

"Love" It's fantastic. Like putting on the most trippy Beatles mixed tape you can imagine. Slow songs, rock songs, earlier songs, later songs, songs written by all four of the guys, all cheek-to-jowl and often mixing right into one another. Sometimes alternate versions too.

I know, this record needs another plug like I need a whole in the head. Hmmm, maybe that would help me in some regards... er, but I digress. This record is so awesome, pick it up.

I live right next to the home of one of the Beatles (can't remember which).

When you live in Liverpool, you really do take these things for granted.

Ok, 'Revolution 9' has some dogs barking. The other one? 'Good Morning, Good Morning' has a rooster, is there a dog on that too? Or another White Album track?

K, I give up on the second one.

p.s. That's cool you live next to an old Beatles home... not so cool if it's George's though, seen some pics and that one looked barely above a hovel.
