    The Beatles used to be my favorite band, till I heard this endless shitshow

    By The Ghost of Mike Millard on Dec 3, 2020

  8. First three were not me. And this one is also not me. I’m so wretched and boring I don’t even exist. I’m just a penis-living troll-bot.

    By U L E on Dec 3, 2020

  11. Phony comment above wasn’t me . I don’t really like the Beatles that much . I always preferred the stones .

    By HHH on Dec 3, 2020

  12. There needs to be a way of stopping all of these name stealers. Morons

    By HHH on Dec 3, 2020

  13. I have always enjoyed hearing the extended versions of “Dig It”‘ and hope it makes the new Let It Be movie next year. Thanks for all you do BigO!

    By BigE on Dec 3, 2020

  14. Bigo, you’ve got this labeled as Jan. 30 while the cover says Jan. 31st. I was confused but I’m better now. Thanks.

    By sking on Dec 3, 2020

  15. Twasnt me above . I’m not a penis lover

    By U L E on Dec 3, 2020

  16. None of the comments here were written by me. I’m not some little bitch who worries about, “name stealers”. Get a life, you fucking pussies.

    By HHH on Dec 3, 2020

  17. The only one that was me was the very first one . The rest fakes .
