If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Heh, good one Buck. Good one.In truth, the White Album is pretty impressive both musically and conceptually. The Fab Four were well ahead of their time, in my oh so humble opinion.
I have one of the original "numbered" vinyl copies, plus a half-speed mastered vinyl copy and TWO CDs of the damned thing. And when the alien technology comes I'll buy yet another copy...
I like this album too and the kinky "Road" song does bring back a few memories. But your reference to the nostalgia "machine" and what sets it off just sent me off to look up some stuff on Dylan's "Nashville Skyline," an album that automatically triggers the "machine" in my case. Thanks for the memories, Buck.
I like "Nashville Skyline" a lot, too, Dan.
It isn't pleasant if it's a gravel road either. Trust me.
OK, I'll trust ya!
Number Nine? Number Nine? Number Nine?....
The ONLY tune I skip on the album...
Do what? I don't get it. . .I used to be one of those who generally thought the White Album to be too long by half, but over the years, some of those 'leftover' tracks have kinda grown on me. As Sir Paul says, "It's the Beatles, the White Album; shut up!"
In re: too long. I thought that when it first came out, too. And like you, I've grown to love it all. Except for "Revolution Nine." ;-)
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
