You wouldn't fall flat on your knees if he walked up to you after a performance? He being 21 and you being 18?
Yes you would. :}

Joyce, the remixed Lennon CD's came out between 200 and 2005-more or less. They all came out individually. POB was the first to be released with DF.
(the latter not a remix but a remaster) and the rest followed. The remixes were done by Peter Cobbin. While Walls and Bridges, Rock and Roll and STNYC had some tracks remixed and others only remastered, POB, Imagine and Mind games were completely remixed. The sound is, in a word, phenomenal on all the CD's.

I had a feeling that the remasters in the Signature Box would never equal the quality of the remixes but I wanted to have it for posterity-I thought it was importanr to have the ORIGINAL mixes in the best sound possible. Unfortunately, that's not how the Signature Box turned out-not to my ears, anyway.

For me, then, the remixes is the way to go for the best sound on John's post-Beatles material. To add to "it", I seeked out the Japanese mini-Lp CD remixed versions which are superb downsized exact duplications of the original full sized album cover-art (down to John's face on the Imagine Cd just like the original LP).

Incidentally, the Working Class hero compilation CD is of the Cobbin remixes. In this case, if it's strictly a Lennon "best-of" you're after, that's the one to get in my opinion.

Dear Lawrence and All:
that is sad news....
believe it or not, I saw him live at Lincoln Center in a free outdoor concert, at one of my "precious few" trips there. the date was August 24, 1999. it was a warm summer night; my favorite thing in the summer in NY....i don't remember all the songs he sang, but when he sang this one, i recognized it as a song that Crystal Gayle did a "cover" of....I didn't know he sang it, but found out that night. I adore the song, and used to sing it a lot myself at home, so i was pleasantly surprised.... here it is:
http://youtu.be/DL0xWGJ8hNQ
and here is Crystal Gayle's cover...I will sing along with her, as i am posting, and maybe, wherever Doc is right now, he will hear me:
http://youtu.be/dpXY1ZixbpU

I've got to tell you I've been racking my brain,
Hoping to find a way out.
I've had enough of this continual rain,
Changes are comin', no doubt
It's been a too long time,
with no peace of mind,
and I'm ready for the times to get better.....
You seem to want from me what I cannot give.
I feel so lonesome at times.
I have a dream that I wish I could live;
it's burnin' holes in my mind.
it's been a too long time,
with no peace of mind,
and i'm ready for the times to get better....
it's been a too long time,
with no peace of mind,
and I'm ready for the times to get better......

Dear Doc...hope your times are finally going to get better!

love,
joyce

Dear Pete:
thanks for the name you mentioned before, and the information.... I have "working class hero", and I think i may have most of the Peter Cobbin remaster/remixes...have to read the backs...i thought they were mostly nearer to 2000...so between 2000-2005 or so, but I will pull them all and look, as they don't always say on the descriptions online (amazon and other sites)....
btw, I know i have the POB and WAB ones, but i will have to check the rest...I believe I also have the "Live In Toronto" Japanese Import and a couple others....stuff gets spread out all over the place, and sometimes it's hard to know what you have and what you don't, but I think at one time I had pulled them all, and dumped them all onto my iTunes library, so I believe i still have them all set aside...
thanks again!
love,
joyce

Hello All:

Check out the verse about the first time the author heard "the boys" in this article from The Montreal Gazette. Like a "jolt of lightning". Still true.

Actually Joyce, the fly was interviewed on the Tonight Show in the late '70's and evidently it was all done with video tricks: They were all actually the same fly but some had been made up to look different. A cost-cutting strategy.
But then you can never be sure, it may have been a publicity stunt. The fly later auditioned for The Fly remake with Goldlum but didn't pass the audition b/c of some union dues flap.
(couldn't resist)

Hinch, I remember that Prince performance on Arsenio Hall. It was the time Patty LaBelle said that he rarely eats and then quipped, as Prince took the stage, that "he's probably hungry now..."
And Prince only performed, didn't engage with the other folks outside the band. Was a serious performance as I recall it.

Dear Gary:
oh, okay....i see! Silly me...I thought it was lots and lots of different flies, and instead it was a "trained fly"...like one of those "t.v. flies"....
thanks for letting me know the truth! that was one talented fly! they don't make um like that anymore!
love,
joyce

Thanks! I worked almost 10 hrs tonight, but I volunteered. We had a lot of orders after 3 days off, so I wanted to finish tonight . Hopefully we wont have as much the rest of the week.

After thinking about it, I may have Prince's Arsenio Hall performance on vhs somewhere. I used to tape a lot, and have forgotten a lot of what I have.
