Come Together does not break into my 30 Favorite Beatles’ songs, but it has the distinction of being the very first song by the group that I heard while being actively aware that I was listening to the Beatles. My uncle, who had a dual-deck tape recorder (a tremendous rarity in the days of my youth in the country of my birth), recorded Abbey Road onto the very first tape that I called my own after acquiring a fairly primitive tape player.
I’ve been a fan of the Beatles ever since.
With that, my lovely wife and I are off to a short weekend adventure. On our own!
I’ll tell you all about it – ok, some about it, – when we return.
