Yes, this is slightly off topic, but at AXPONA 2016 Prudence Farrow Bruns, who inspired John Lennon to write "Dear Prudence" signed copies of her book "Dear Prudence The Story Behind the Song" and I thought you'd enjoy watching our "The Marketplace" encounter.

Music re-mixes may not be as complicated or as critical as brain surgery but when it comes to The Beatles, you could make the case.

It's easy to forget in today's image and video drenched world how little we got to see during the 1960s of The Beatles and other rock groups.

Had enough Beatles? Then don't read this and whine about it. But if you never have enough Beatles, this new 27 song singles collection on DVD, Blu-ray, CD and eventual double LP (the latter two audio only obviously) is for you. You will fall in love all over again.

The producer Ralph Sall had an idea ten years ago or so: why not get some of the greatest musical talents of our time to pay tribute to Sir Paul McCartney by having them cover his songs? What could possibly go wrong?

The Audio Salon In Santa Monica California announced today a Beatles event that sounds fascinating. I'd go if I lived out there.

The two upcoming Beatles compilations, the "Red" (1962-1966) and "Blue" (1967-1970) were cut from the original analog tape used to produced the original LP sets—with a few exceptions, says Abbey Road mastering engineer Sean Magee.

Wow, just read the Beatles in Mono "book shocker" thread... It's not surprising that they originally were going to cut from CDs, being that they're only the moldy mono mixes anyway right?... :)

Last night's Beatles in MONO listening session at Electric Lady Studios played to an overflow crowd of fans, young and old, male and female. The event and the one Wednesday night September 10th at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, both sponsored by UMe feature Beatles engineer Ken Scott, reissue mastering supervisor Steve Berkowitz in a panel discussion moderated by Sound & Vision music editor Mike Mettler.

While the 108 page book included in the The Beatles in MONO box set can't compare with the more sumptuous 252 page one included with the stereo box set, it is a fun read and more a fun look. It's filled with great pictures and especially advertisements, press reviews and tape box and internal notes images.

Particularly interesting are Harry T. Moss's cutting notes for some releases. I wish they'd have shown them all but that's probably something only geeks would wish to see (in other words count us all in).

Lovers of original British vinyl had to hand it to Capitol: they collected the "B" sides and British EP tracks and packed them onto Beatle LPs of their invention, keeping the track total skimpy to help create even more LPs. One could buy the EPs to complete the collection but they were less convenient to play though the laminated picture sleeves added value.
