The Day I Tried to Long Tall Sally Paul McCartney


Long The Beatles’ tunes were streaming online, their early records were pressed at a Smiths Falls factory. The author of a book on the band tells us about The Beatles’ Smiths Falls connection and the official launch of Beatles book set for March 12 in Smiths Falls. (I’d post the link to the article about the announcement in the Canadian-Almonte Gazette but it does not work)

So because this brings back fond memories I am reposting this story.

  1. I can’t believe you actually got that close-what a story! To this day, I don’t understand the screaming-herd mentality, I guess. When I saw the Beatles in Montreal, they were little specks down on the stage because they were that far away. I remember travelling downtown with 10 girls more clearly that I remember the actual concert. One of our mothers actually stood in line at the Forum on the day the tickets went on sale so that we could go. I marvel at that today but took it for granted then.
