    I just enjoyed a two hour programme on Yesterday channel entitled "how the beatles changed the world" , i realise everything worth saying about the Beatles has already been said but this programme was more of an overview of the decade and not simply what the Beatles were up to. It covered the music of the time sure but also politics, fashion and attitudes at the time in both Britain and the USA.
    I was only 11 years old when the 60s came to an end and like most kids i was only interested in comics,sweets and my bike,i just wish i could of lived the 60s as an adult so i could fully appreciate the great music, fashion and other trends that the decade brought. I know there was a lot of political turmoil happening and it's easy to remember the 60s with rose tinted glasses but if i could re-visit a decade from my life it would be the 60s, whilst i did my growing up in the 70s and whilst i have very fond memories of that decade i still feel i kinda missed out on the 60s because i was too young

    For one thing, that American LP you linked to was, IIRC, released, in the US, but quickly withdrawn, due to the nature of the sleeve. Some copies "escaped" and are eye-wateringly expensive in mint condition!
    The only red label Parlophone record that my parents had was Mike Sarne's Come Outside which I believe it got to number one?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    He had Wendy Richard to help him on Come Outside, making her the first on the list of people who have appeared on a British Number One single and in Eastenders.

    Not a great claim to fame, methinks.
