Title - 'Fab Fan Memories: The Beatles Bond'
Artist - Louise Harrison
For those not in the know, hosted by Louise Harrison (sister of George Harrison), Fab Fan Memories: The Beatles Bond is a unique spoken word recording featuring the personal stories of true Beatles fans!
Heartwarming, funny, and totally fab, it is truly an album by the fans for the fans and is as wonderous to hear now as I'm sure it was to record back then.
For most people back then, the Beatles were the world's greatest band (although, in truth, it was the Rolling Stones, sorry), and this delightful collection brings those early days of the Beatles' heyday in 1964 lovingly to the vocal fore once again.
As we listen along, we are regaled with stories of the Beatles' meteoric arrival in America on February 7th, 1964 (otherwise know since as Beatles' Day), we get to hear views and stories about their celebrated televised performance on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9th, 1964 and oh-so much more!
Narrated by George's only sister, Louise narrates with a tone of adoration and honest desire to bring all she can back to the many recollections of those days here on this wondrous new album.
Just listening to it through twice now, I still remain "trapped" there in 1964, the words and music coming from this CD now embedded within my head.
The vocalized memories of Beatlemania that came to be along with the numerous fan memories, background music, and the narrative/memories by Louise simply make this a must-have for all self-respecting Beatles fans!
