quick note on Essentials

I'm heavy into work on the critical Beatles discography for The Essentials but I think I've decided that this time I will put up the posts as I finish them rather than vomiting them out all in one huge feed-cluttering action. This means there will be some cross-references here and there that won't make much sense but it seems like a good tradeoff for (a) not overwhelming anyone who may be interested to read this but would be put off by mass quantities of material, which I think it's fair to say was a problem with the Beach Boys posts, and (b) being able to share the stuff I'm pleased with that I've already completed. I don't absolutely know which reviews will be capsules and which will be essays yet, so the capsule catch-all posts will wait till near the end of the project... which is a pretty lengthy one, as I'm at least touching on pretty much every bootleg recording and alternate mix that's out there.

If there are any objections to this, leave a comment sometime in the next day or two. FYI: because of the way my work on this is structured, if I go through with this then we will be kicking off with some of the very very early Beatles recordings that exist, not launching straight into the albums.
