Target already charged me for the album even though it’s not out until Sept. 7th!! 😡
I started to pre-order it, but $24 (with shipping) just seems ridiculous. I think I'll just try to get it in the store, if I don't change my mind and wait for the inevitable super deluxe that may have those same tracks, haha.
I agree about the shipping & taxes. I'll just pick it up at the store. And I'll get the super box too.
Taylor Swift looks and sounds appropriately feline for her role in the upcoming "Cats" musical with various kitty qualites, her form still pretty much slinky and co-star Jennifer Hudson also looks appealingly cat-like, her face--but "A Star Is Born" remake star Lady Gaga doesn't remind me much of the fantastic Judy Garland, especially not in singing ability, with her onscreen on the big screen emoting ability still to be revealed...she would have seemed more suited to the planned new movie "Cats" musical, I think
Don’t forget, there was also the Barbra Streisand/Kris Kristofferson remake. (Elvis wanted to do that movie, but the Colonel wouldn’t let him!) Just saw some clips from the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper one and it looks great!

I wondered that too, as I was watching "Eight Days a Week." If you watch the Maysles brothers documentary "The Beatles First U. S. Tour" there's excellent good quality footage shown of each Ed Sullivan Show appearance, and fairly complete.

To make matters worse I can't find it. Anyone have any ideas if the beautiful Ron Howard edition is for sale? 🆒
Hi Rick, There was a legal dispute by the promoter of the Shea Stadium concert, that could be why it wasn't released on DVD with the rest of the documentary - now that the dispute has been decided in the Beatles favor, it's possible the Shea Stadium concert will be re-issued sometime in the near distant future. (News about legal dispute is at
There's more of the concert on this video than was in Eight Days a Week... brief clip of the first part of "She's a Woman," for example. This is the original Shea Stadium film with opening acts, etc.
Thank You. Amazing quality. And how the Band sounded good, especially hats off to Ringo, when they could not even hear each other play , is nothing short of miraculous.
Hi Nancy! How are you? I am well aware of the overdubbing and corrections made to the audio soundtrack later at London's CTS Studio in January 1966. In my opinion, if SHEA should ever be released, they should use both the original audio recording from the internal line feed and the audio recording which contains all of the overdubbing and corrections. Then we can all listen to both versions and compare.
Hi! I'm doing fine and hope you are too. My comment was directed to rickpucci though. Yes, I would love to hear/see both versions too!
I just couldn't help myself Nancy, I love talking about SHEA! rickpucci could still comment, let's hear what rickpucci has to say on this subject.
I still listen to Postcards a decent amount... I have to say, it's one of my favorite Ringo albums. I think it's aging much better than Y Not and Ringo 2012. There are several songs that rank among Ringo's best. Even the title track, that I didn't love at first, really sounds great to me these days. Touch and Go, Not Looking Back, and Rory and the Hurricanes are really fantastic.
Good, I'm glad it wasn't you and you got to see the whole show! The guy who got tossed out near us, had managed to fall over the seats in front of him; I was waiting for him to go over the edge, he was that close! People around us got pretty ugly, yelling for security to throw him, and a woman he was with, out. They were a bit obnoxious during the show (too much beer, I guess), but mainly were just singing and dancing. I wasn't paying them too much attention, though, as I was focused on my binoculars most of the time, so I may have missed the worst of their behavior. I was a bit surprised at how nasty the other people got, though.
I'm so glad to see this thread is still going strong! I cannot believe it's been 10 YEARS since that night!!!???? Where has the time gone!!!??? I don't think I've posted in a couple of years, so coming here and seeing these familiar posts makes me feel like I'm back home.

I'm 3 hours farther from you. That is why I got the hotel in Lincoln. I also don't have a second driver. If I did, I would definitely leave a day sooner. I know how I am when I am Paul zapped--not safe to drive.
