At the end of the Beatles last ever live performance (on a London rooftop) John Lennon jokingly said “I hope we passed the audition”. Well, there was actually a time when the band had to pass auditions and the last of these instances happened on June 6, 1962, 50 years ago today, when the band entered Abbey Road Studios for the first time.

We are excited by the quality of new albums being released so far this year. Just yesterday, we reviewed the excellent debut by the “supergroup” Flying Colors, which followed our previous review of Jack White’s debut solo effort, Blunderbuss. Earlier in the year, a reunited Van Halen put out A Different Kind of Truth – their first album with David Lee Roth in nearly 3 decades. Jethro Tull released Thick As a Brick 2, a follow-up to the original concept album from 1972, 40 years ago.
Within the next week or so Joe Walsh will release his first album in 20 solid years and Rush will finally put out Clockwork Angels, which has been in the works for about 3 years now. Due out later in the year are new albums by Smashing Pumpkins, Aerosmith, Dream Theater, and The Badlees.
Of course, there are many more not mentioned here, which will further add to this quality year in music. Please reply with any I have failed to mention.
June is here, the kids are just about out of school, the weather is fine, and the days are long. Many people (rightfully) think of this time as a time of leisure and vacation. But this is not the case for me.
2012 is a crucial, probably THE most crucial year in the growth of my business 33 Dimensions, and I gratefully embrace the opportunity to shift into overdrive growing this business and providing service to my great clients in Pennsylvania and beyond. Despite the fact that these are econmically uncertain times, these are very exciting times for people in my business. The new tools and services that are being constantly developed give businesses like mine ever greater opportunities to offer outstanding value to our customers and work more efficiently in the process.
So enjoy the summer everyone, spend quality time with your loved ones and soak in some sun. I will be right here plugging away at the 33 Dimensions mission (ok, I do have a nice yard with a pool right outside my door, so I will survive).
