  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Beatles - Remastered

    I purchased a bunch of Beatles albums from the guy I bought my Tannoy's from. One of them was an Italian copy of Rubber Soul. It has the same track listings as what's on the British release and it's a stereo recording. I see one here on Ebay for sale that looks exactly like the one I have. The back cover is different from my US pressing and from what I gather the British pressing as well. It has three of the boys holding rather large springs in their hands and John holding some type of green stemmed plant.

    Can anyone tell me anything particular about this record? Is it a re-issue? :confused:

    Only thing I can find is this, which makes it seems like it was released in 1965. Though here it seems to be from 1976.

    Looking at the runoff groove, it has:

    04115-A YEX 178-2 14-1-66
    04115-B YEX 179-2 14-1-66

    Looks like that last set of numbers might indicate a date?

    It sounds good but has the vocals in the right channel.

    Thanks,
    John

    Michael Fremer's website, Musicangle states that a high quality edition of the The Beatles Mono Box is in pre-production at Abbey Road Studios. Yippee!

    Hey Jude without any thinking at all. Fabulous addictive melancholy that some idiot decided to degenerate into 500 meaningless na, na, na, na-na-na-na's. The oft musical genius went sadly missing instead of finishing the damned thing.

    Harrison fan, by the way. 'Here Comes The Sun', 'While my Guitar...' and 'Something' being my all time Beatles favourites. Probably because I'm a Stones fan of their 40+ year history that these are my thing and it takes me each decade to get another layer of the Lennon/McC stuff. I might succumb completely if I can make it to the ripe old age of 200! Actually, I often prefer McCs solo stuff. Sacrilige.
     
  6. Got my copy of the Mono Masters yesterday...£59.99 off e-bay as it was 'slightly damaged'...well the box is a little dinked and the info sticker on the back is slightly askew but other than that its fine....not bothered about that tho'

    The sound on the mono's is great and I am much looking forward to re-aquainting myself with the music.

    I thought the green USB files sounded the same as the CDs, from the samples I tried.

    Amazon keep listing some Beatles albums with a Sept 2011 release date, e.g. Rubber Soul here. Dunno if this is significant. No details as to what it actually is.

    Tony.
