Wyn Morris

Hey Carl,

I'd love to see one of these. My 9-year-old son is going through his inevitable Beatles-obsession phase. The whole "Paul is Dead" conspiracy holds much intrigue for him - if only I could find a way to play an MP3 of Revolution N. 9 backwards I know he's find all sorts of clues!

I'd love to check out a copy. I'll even spin my lp of Revolution No.9(on my white vinyl version of White Album) backwards on my turntable, tape it and send it to Wyn, if it helps. Wyn's the only guy in town I know who has more LP's than me(if he's still got em).
ps Carl, how bout a contest for coolest album cover? Mine's a Jefferson Airplave cover, that you can fold into a 3-D cigar box, which when you pull out the album sleeve(picture of cigars) reveals a secret stash.

If there are any copies left, I would be happy to receive one. The B's have shaped the sound of music for many generations (in my case, a boomer with Medicare).


Gee, I'd love a copy too.Even if I have to point out that, although Buck was the first to make the song a hit,it was composed by Johnny Russell with lyrics by Vonie Morrison (Van's brother?).
