Crowded House And The Beatles: Aural Fun!

CROWDED HOUSE: The fine folks at are once again releasing dozens of live shows from last year's Crowdie tour, and of course all right-thinking Americans should have the entire set. But those looking for one good sampler should give Kufala's "Travelogue 2010" compilation a shot. Three CDs, 49 tracks, all in spectacular sound. This may still be available at some record stores (it was issued for Record Store Day a few weeks back) or at the Kufala site.

THE BEATLES: Just received Beatlefan #189, a bi-monthly magazine that covers the Fab Four in depth. Yes, you read that right, it's issue #189. How, you may wonder, do they continue to find magazines worth of material forty years after the band dissolved? Beats me, but they sure do, and anyone with an interest in the Beatles, both together and solo, and/or Apple and its associated bands will definitely find something of interest here.
