I wouldn't mind hearing a few XMas tracks from Brian and the band.

But a "Christmas" tour would essentially just be a regular show with 3-5 XMas songs sprinkled into the setlist. I don't think they'd bust out the entire '64 album, nor would they work in much from Brian's solo set.

Al was apparently some time back in the last decade planning to do a Christmas tour with Christoper Cross and Jim Messina, and it of course never materialized. I have no idea how far into planning it they were, but that would have been interesting.



If they wanted to, they could chose about a dozen Xmas songs between the BB/BW albums (maybe sneak something like Winter Symphony), and still have 20 or so songs in the setlist for other material.   

I missed seeing Little St Nick in person by about a week two years ago.  I saw Brian on the 2nd leg of the NPP Tour the Friday before Thanksgiving.   After Thanksgiving, they swapped our All Summer Long for Little Saint Nick for the encore.  While I appreciate the restraint of waiting until after Thanksgiving to play Christmas material, I'd love to hear some BB holiday songs live. 

He hasn't always waited until after Thanksgiving to do "Little Saint Nick." He did it on the second, 2005 *Summer* "Smile" tour!

(He was of course presumably sort of pre-promoting his XMas album, which came out in October of that year after the tour wrapped).

on the flip side, I had Brian sign a copy of Pet Sounds with Mike removed and he didn't seem to mind at all  Smiley



It's okay, Mike later argued in court that he *was* added to the PS cover photo while Tony Asher was taking a bathroom break.

Was Ed Carter in the band full-time during the 1971-1973 Blondie era? My recollection is that he was usually if not always there. He usually swapped between lead guitar and bass as well.

I'm curious how much those sorts of instrument swaps were a free-for-all, or if the backing guys would basically defer to the "main" guys and kind of play whatever was left over. It was definitely a cool era for the band, when backing guys and BBs were all swapping lead vocals and instruments, and sometimes doubling up (e.g. Bobby Figueroa and Ricky, etc.).

I know in the later era in the late 70s and early 80s, they tried a few times to have another bass player (Joe Chemay, Ernie Knapp) which allowed Ed Carter to basically go guitar full-time. (Of course, in the Knapp era Ed Carter was basically taking *Carl's* place as far as lead guitar was concerned). Then, in later years Carter was almost exclusively on bass, only doing a few leads (like "Summer in Paradise") where Billy would take over on bass.

The writing was clearly on the wall. This was the beginning of the end...

We are going to split the album in two, so round #11 is Disc 1 and round #12 will be Disc 2.

Quote
The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album by English rock group the Beatles, released on 22 November 1968. A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed,[a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's earlier Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Although no singles were issued from The Beatles in Britain and the United States, the songs "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. The album's songs range in style from British blues and ska to tracks influenced by Chuck Berry and by Karlheinz Stockhausen.

On release, The Beatles received favourable reviews from the majority of music critics, but other commentators found its satirical songs unimportant and apolitical amid the turbulent political and social climate of 1968. The band and Martin have since debated whether the group should have released a single album instead. Nonetheless, The Beatles reached number one on the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States and has since been viewed by some critics as one of the greatest albums of all time.

There are also about a ten billion Strat/Tele, etc. clones out there. Custom necks/alternate necks can also be added on.

Carl's latter-era 12-string, as I recall, is an Epiphone Riviera with a Gibson replacement neck.

But we're cool as cool goes.

That's the spirit, RR. :=)

Today I finished off the (for me) crippling business of insulating the convector radiator tray (my idea). I found some ancient just-about-usable foil in the attic for the last corner, rather than forking out for a whole new roll. So all 's well that ends etc.

My wife didn't need converting. We went to Brian's Kenwood House (London) concert in 2008 and this year to M&B and (like me) she enjoyed them thoroughly, up to and including (at the last one) filming "THWFOS"----the most played song in our house, thanks to our two-year-old smartphone-savvy granddaughter.  Grin
