What do we want released the most?

Post by Lord Reith »

Don't think you can do polls here, but from a list of these 5 things what do you want to see released most? I'm not including future Deluxe Editions because they are more or less dead certs. No cheating and inserting your own wants! :P


1/ Shea bluray

2/ Let It Be bluray

3/ Washington bluray

4/ An official collection of all the early material (eg: Decca, Cavern, People And Places etc)

5/ On Air At The BBC Volume 3.


Mine would be 4 and I make no apologies.

4) .. I assume there are more unknowns in that realm than others.

#4 but with some demix technology applied to clean up the sound. Some may object to cleaning it up, I imagine.

#4, especially if they can put out that Geoff Emerick tape, some Cavern stuff, and finally that Woolton fete tape they keep dripping out and drowning in voice-over every ten years. A proper complete Decca audition release disc would be nice to add to the core discography.

I honestly don't care about a 3rd BBC release unless it reveals something truly new or improved. Really, I'd rather they just take the 30 unique non-LP tracks they did with Ringo and make two "new" Beatles albums to permanently insert into (to repeat the phrase) the core discography (I've made track lists for these, if anyone's curious).

#4 for sure. There are many possibilities there. Certainly, the most intriguing and important.

A rigged question, LR....

The obvious answer is 4.

The ongoing discussion with regards to the first three choices leads me to conclude that there would be nothing new to glean from the existing footage. Neither Washington nor Shea would show significant improvement in picture as BluRay releases. Let It Be, let's face it, is a real downer of a film. I've horked all the different versions that have been posted. Still don't hardly ever watch it. And those rare times when I do, it's never to watch the whole film. As for the BBC, I can only imagine how a third installment might be ruined.

Choice 4 holds the most in the way of unknowns. It'd be the most significant with regards to presenting a Birth Of The Beatles package.

And since I'm compelled to stray from the list, I'd suggest a Budokan '66 BluRay, or a John Lennon box with his first three releases: Two Virgins, Life With The Lions, and The Wedding Album.

Even breaking the rules, I'd still have to choose 4.

As I said,....rigged question.

#1...
This is the closest thing to shooting an arrow straight up over your own head!
There is a moment of trepidation that one is unduly made to answer for.
You can call it OUT OF CONTROL!!!
But, it might be the ONLY way to Rubber Soul, and REVOLVER!
Those are the two points in BEATLES chronology that let the world know...
if FAME can kill, then let it THRILL!
Most bands could never have pulled it off...let alone, smell like a rose afterward.
They didn't know where the limit was...but they sure played it cool.
THAT makes all the difference.
Forget California...THE U.S.A. has just fallen into the ocean!
Well, SHEAk it up baby, now!
It should have ended here.
Candlestick seems so far away!
Original audio please!
(NOBODY's listening!)
