  2. Actor John Aylward has died at 75 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Aylward
  3. Same for The New York Knicks who won against The Los Angeles Lakers in 7 games at Madison Square Garden & Willis Reed also that month of May 1970!!!
  4. "I'll Find My Way Home" went to # 51 (Hot 100) & # 41 (Adult Contemporary) in July of 1982. (audio only)
  5. Music video for "The Friends Of Mr. Cairo" (short edited version which runs 4:18):
  6. Jon & Vangelis "The Friends Of Mr. Cairo" (title track from the 1981 album) Went to # 33 (Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts) in September of 1981 & their only charted song on Mainstream Rock. (complete album version which runs 12 minutes):
  7. Composer instrumetalist Vangelis ("Chariots Of Fire" in 1981 & "Blade Runner" in 1982) has died of COVID-19 at 79 years old. Vangelis also did his thing with former lead singer of YES Jon Anderson. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vangelis
  8. Bassist Rick Price (The Move) has died at 77 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Price_(bassist)
  9. I also did the same for The Rolling Stones "Singles Collection: The London Years" which I bought the box set back in 1992 (which came out in August of 1989). In 2002, ABKCO reissued that with better sound quality!! What I did I decided to use the STEREO versions if possible instead of MONO. I used my headphones for the computer while searching for the STEREO versions on Apple iTunes!! The song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is the stereophonic version from "Hot Rocks 1964 - 1971" 1971 compilation!! The others were indeed in MONO BUT you can hear the guitar on the left speaker on another STEREO version BUT Apple iTunes does not have that!! On Disc 1, there are only 5 songs in STEREO (Tracks 7, 11, 15, 16 & 19) but the rest are in MONO. On Disc 2, there are 14 songs in STEREO (Tracks 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 thru 20) while the other 6 songs are in MONO. Finally on Disc 3, the song (Track 3) "Surprise, Surprise" is in MONO while the other songs are in STEREO. I also used the 45 single STEREO edited version (Track 5) of "You Can't Always Get What You Want"!! Little Miami Steven Van Zandt of "Underground Garage" on SiriusXM said "One of the best box sets ever besides the late Phil Spector's "Back To Mono" box set"!!
  10. TV actress Maggie Peterson (The Andy Griffith Show) has died at 81 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maggie_Peterson
  11. It seems that "The Beatles In Mono" (box set) is NOT available from Apple iTunes. I also do NOT have "Live At The BBC, Volume 2", "The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl" (from 1977, reissued a few years ago) as well as "The 1963 Box Set" (exclusively for Apple iTunes) which I also do not have BUT that is it!!!
  12. By the way, Blood, Sweat & Tears (featuring David Clayton-Thomas) did "Got To Get You Into My Life" (from "New City"). Then The Beatles (originally from 1966 "Revolver" & on the 1976 compilation "Rock 'N' Roll Music"). Finally, Earth, Wind & Fire in the Summer of 1978 also did that song (from the movie soundtrack "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band").
  13. I just downloaded on Apple iTunes, both The Beatles 1976 album compilation "Rock 'N' Roll Music" (2 albums on 1 CD which is 75:27 in length) & 1977 album compilation "Love Songs" (2 albums on 1 CD which is 69:39 in length). I also added 4 bonus songs which were NOT on the "Love Songs" album compilation including "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Till There Was You", "I'm Happy Just To Dance With You" & "Things We Said Today". I also put "Back In The U.S.S.R." (from 1967 - 1970 compilation) because the next song on the "White" album "Dear Prudence" does NOT have the fade out!! The song "Hey Bulldog" I used from the 1969 "Yellow Submarine" (cartoon movie soundtrack) which John is singing on the left speaker instead of using the 2000 remaster because you hear John sing on both speakers. I also used "Get Back" (album version from "Let It Be" which was also on "Rock 'N' Roll Music") which closes the album. I went to EBay & checked out every song on album & then, put them on blank CD's (from Staples) store & put it in jewel cases (also from Staples) & then copied both from the Canon printer using "The Beatles Boxset" on the cover because there was NO "Rock 'N' Roll Music" & "Love Songs" album covers. I put down where the Apple label is Disc 1 "Rock 'N' Roll Music" & Disc 2 "Love Songs" (which also has the title of the songs & running time)!! It will also say "...and 7 more" because it ran out of room!! Both albums in stereo except the song "P.S. I Love You" (from "Love Songs") is in mono!! There is also a 2 second break on each of the songs that I downloaded!! All tracks are the same remasters which came out back in 2009!! You never know if those 2 compilation albums will come out during the Christmas rush this year!!! NO soda fountain drink with straw on the orange Capitol label not included of the 1976 "Rock 'N' Roll Music" compilation!! All songs are $ 1.29 on Apple iTunes (28 on "Rock 'N' Roll Music" & 25 plus 4 bonus songs on "Love Songs" which totals 57 songs)!! My older brother had the cassette tape of "Rock 'N' Roll Music" when he came home for Christmas break during the Navy in Chicago in December of 1976 which was the first time I heard the cassette compilation when I was 11 & 1/2 years old BUT he did NOT bought "Love Songs" though. He went to Tokyo, Japan in the Navy in January of 1977 serving 2 years till December 1978. So I am all set!!
  14. Back in the first week of June of 1985, I bought the Creedence Clearwater Revival album "Creedence Gold" (1972 compilation) & both the songs "Proud Mary" & "Bad Moon Rising" are in TRUE stereo BUT Apple iTunes does NOT have those!! The song "Bad Moon Rising" has an echo effect while John Fogerty is singing & there is also another kinda folk guitar that is playing in the background during the instrumental break!! The greatest hits album "Chronicle" (which came out in early 1976) has both songs in MONO sound type. Same for the albums "Bayou Country" (which has "Proud Mary") & "Green River" (which has "Bad Moon Rising").

  16. The song "Deeper Than The Night" another great song!! (keeps on rollin')
