Alas, that's where it all started to go wrong and throw Yoko into the heady mix and BOOM!
Hep - Actually, over the years, I've come to prefer Yoko's POB album over John's. I didn't as a kid when those records came out, and, in fact, the needle only dropped once on the Yoko POB record and was lifted off about 30 seconds later. Which as it turns out was a good thing in the long run, as my copy is in pristine near-mint condition.
I find her POB Lp a lot of fun, very propulsive, edgier and more an "open" work of art than John's. I do tend to turn the treble down a little.

/\ Don't Worry Kyoko, Why, and Mind Train have always been ferocious jams, sure her vocalizations were a bit off-key but John, Ringo, and Klaus were really mind-melding and locking down powerful grooves on those long excursions, I listen to them regularly, but when I was a kid I couldn't deal with it at all .....
I like this photo ... the Charlie Christian pickup looks cool:

I've been reading Noel Coward's diaries and in Rome in 1965 he gets to meet The Beatles, after being invited back to the hotel after the concert by Epstein, "the lads" snubbed Coward and after some persuasion Macca came out to see him. Quite poor manners really by the rest of the band.
/\ hahaha! you'd think an old trouper like Noel would have been familiar with the concept of personal space .......
John's trying to gain cool cred for owning a Stones album.
Those boys were always in awe of John, but at least Keith got to brag that he could hold his drugs better .... at the Circus, even though John flubbed a line, his Yer Blues with the Macs puts the Stones in their place ... I love the Stones but there was more talent in John's little finger ........
