Hello,

I used to have the version from What Do You Want From Live. It was a kind of punk take on the song. I used to listen to the Tubes often but they were always a lot of hit and miss - the good was pretty good, but the weak stuff was really weak.

Otis Redding does a pretty cool Hard Days Night and Day Tripper

Long, Long, Long is an amazing track and in my opinion the best song George ever recorded as a Beatle. Simple and plaintive. The lyrics are sparse, but poetic...seemingly Harrison speaking to God, but without being preachy. Beautifully understated backing track with a truly amazing ending thanks to McCartney's Hammond organ, Harrison's haunted wail, and a vibrating wine bottle.

This is also a great Harrison track. Non-Beatles, but he's still a Beatle so I'm putting it here. Cloud 9 is a pretty fantastic LP in general.

I listened to "Let It Be ...Naked" last night.

I mean I wasn't naked I'm not Spiff.

It occurred to me that The Beatles wanted to be Creedence Clearwater Revival at this point.

This is in my Beatles top thirty, even though it's not them.

There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board
