    A Cherry Ghost
  1. No working zipper on this remaster....I have a remastered CD from the late 90s (i think ?) that is basically a replica of the entire album including the working zipper. I also have the Exile remaster in the same vein, with all the included post cards, etc. It seems like these remasters are more about the music being "modernized" then replicating the actual original vinyl records. I do like the bonus discs for the 3 albums done so far. Joel
  2. The book on recording the Beatles is a fun read if you skip around. If you try to read it straight through, it gets boring after awhile because it's almost TOO detailed.

The idea of these kids playing People Get Ready has got me really excited.
  5. Thanks guys, I like all the ideas so far, I'll take all the songs I can get !
  6. Hello all, I think I've posted here once but I really respect everyone's takes on music around here and love reading the dialogue on a daily basis. I've been asked by the church I belong to to (2 to's together never seem like correct grammar)put together a band of High School aged members of the church and mentor them (and play with them) for church and other functions. It was the kids' idea originally and we want to make it happe Sn. Here's the challenge. The kids don't want to do religious hymns or overly obvious religious songs. They want to do more secular music but it would need to be
  7. The Kids by Lou Reed....that whole album is a sad one.
