    Hey there guys.
    Anyone know what happened with zapple ? Did the singles label ever form or was it just Apple.
    Happy world Beatles day !

    Only two LPS were released by Zapple: Unfinished Music Vol. 2 - Life with the Lions (John and Yoko) and Electronic Sound (George).

    Some spoken word stuff was recorded for planned albums but was never released by the label.

    Barry Miles, who ran Zapple, wrote a short history about the experience, which came out not too long ago. I published a review here.

    I think the a Richard Brautigan spoken-word/poetry LP even made it to the acetate stages and was slated as the third release on Zapple before Zapple got zapped with the rest of Allen Klein's budget cuts.

    "Mary Jane"/"You Know My Name" was rumored to be a possible Zapple single. Not sure if that came close to fruition.

    Try IMGUR, load images into your library then select the image you want, on the right you'll have various links, I usually copy and paste the first and last 2 to my desktop then insert into SH reply, but preview first to see which one works.

    It's the best way I've found. Once the link is generated, copy. Then use the button with the chain link image above where you post on this forum. Paste the url into the box provided.
