I was listening to the Beatles collection the other day and something had occurred to me. From recollection I saw somewhere where Paul McCartney said of the Beach Boys(during the Beatles heyday in the middle 60's) "We have competition here fellas" or words to that effect.However once again from my days of youth, and talking about record labels (of which I was familiar) I had purchased a few singles of the Beatles 10 shillings each (with two sides A and B) here in Australia and with the Beatles (same as Elvis) that was a bargain as both sides were infrequently hits.I seem to remember that here in Australia the Beatles record label was Parlophone. However in the USA and here is where the connection comes in....the Beatles recording label was...Capitol...same as the Beach Boys.

Doesn't the story go that when the Beatles heard 'Animal Noises' that they realised they had better start doing some different things?

Is that suppose to be "heard", not "head" Scotto? What is animal noises..is that a record album I have never heard of? From the gist of your response this album was that of the Beach Boys? In any case I am a fan of the Beatles and even Elvis but more so of their earlier work rather than that of later. This is true of every artist I guess

yes... heard is right, and sorry......'Pet Sounds' is what I was thinking of. Which was supposedly originally inspired by 'Rubber Soul' in the first place... so there you go.

Rubber Soul was a successful Beatles album.I could not afford many albums when I was a teen earning 10 pounds a week. Only singles at 10 shillings each. From recollection albums were a guinea each (that is one pound one shilling each) That to me was expensive.I had a lot of Beatles singles...and a few of Billy Thorpe's as well. Did you know that Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs recorded for the same recording company as the Beatles...Parlophone although I have a single on a label called Linda Lee with a surfing instrumental by the Aztecs

Have you by any chance read Billy Thorpe's autobiographies?
