The Beatles Rock N Roll Music - Another Tracks Monkey Clown Label

...Leave it to a label called Monkey Clown to continue the attempts at being creative with slicing n' dicing up BEATLES recordings!...pictured above is a compilation with seemingly random selections from just about every poignant landmark live performance, etc. and it's called "Rock N Roll Music - Another Tracks" (I think our japanese friends meant '..and other tracks"...but whatever).  It's a single CD where you get tracks from Stockholm '63, Budokan '66, Shea Stadium, etc. with artwork from the Captiol double LP replicated on this little project...Speaking of projects, Mid Valley gives new meaning to ambitious for 2009 with their latest ERIC CLAPTON Box Set (below) called, "Here's To The Next 150!", which is a 22CD compilation of his 2009 stand at London's Royal Albert Hall in the Spring of the year that ran from May 16th through May 31st...hardly something for the casual fan but all those completists or Slowhand fanatics may be drooling a little bit with the prospect of getting their hands on such a set...
