Fruit...sort of

Before the computer and the ipod there was another Apple that people sort of went a little crazy for. Apple records was a record company started by The Beatles in 1968. This company signed a few well known artists and some not so well known. The Plastic Ono Band, formed by John and Yoko, included Eric Clapton, two former Beatles (George Harrison and Ringo Starr), future Yes drummer Alan White, members of Delaney and Bonnie, and The Who's drummer Keith Moon just to name a few.

Moving involves me getting these records sold and out of my way so here are two apples with familiar and enduring messages:

You are way too young to have "records"! :-) I enjoyed your history lesson as well as your images.

Great info about the records and the label. I never saw one of those, so your history lesson was interesting.
