John Lennon does an ad for Tower Records

Unfortunately, this is just audio, but the video of the Tower store brings back great memories. According to LA Observed, it was taped in the KHJ studios in Los Angeles.

 Gone but not forgotten. Go get 'em, as John says.

PETA's official video of its 35th anniversary gala with Paul McCartney

Paul's not the whole video, but there are bits here of him playing at the beginning and the end. In between, there are a lot of other stars giving their testimonies of support for PETA.

A different take of "Strawberry Fields Forever"

An alternate version (well, it's marked "different", isn't it?) with the introduction by guest host Van Johnson on the ABC '60s variety series "The Hollywood Palace."

A stunning stereo "She Loves You" that could pass for the real thing

An absolutely amazing Deepsky Spectral stereo remix of "She Loves You" in stereo.

The same person has also done "Love Me Do." The results are equally great.

Thanks to Keith of Revolver Records for the alert on "She Loves You." EMI, are you listening?

Mark Hudson rocks up McCartney's "My Valentine"

Mark Hudson at the Iridum in New York Sept. 28, 2015, doing his version of the Paul McCartney ballad "My Valentine." This certainly ain't no ballad, but it's a dynamite version.

"I'll Get You" in almost excellent stereo!

Here's "I'll Get You" in real (almost) stereo. Like the "She Loves You" clip we posted, this also can't be embedded, so again I can only put the link. Below is another version that can be embedded. But I think the first version is better. If I had to make a pick from both, "She Loves You' is better. But this doesn't sound bad.

"She Loves You" in true (enough) stereo! (revised)

This first one is about as close you're gonna get, but it can't be embedded so just the link is there. Nice effort. Below is a second effort. (Note: I revised this after the initial one I sent because of the embedding problem with the first video.)

Kids' '60s game show gives away a Beatles prize

Anyone remember "Shenanigans" with Stubby Kaye? It featured a board game played on a TV soundstage, just like "Video Village" with Monty Hall (also host of "Let's Make a Deal") did. The great part here is the prizes. One of them includes something to do with the Beatles and the video even shows the Beatles display. I'll take 10 cases, please.

John Lennon at the Cannes Film Festival 1971

John Lennon at the Cannes Film Festival 1971. Too bad they had to get artsy with it. Would have liked to have seen it in a single frame.
