    • Check for Opening paragraph (MOS:BEGIN):  Done

        • "Try Some, Buy Some" is a song written by English musician George Harrison, first released in 1971 as a single by former Ronettes lead singer Ronnie Spector.
        • Definition and notability should be in the first sentence (WP:BETTER). As per WP:LEADSENTENCE, The article should begin with a short declarative sentence, answering two questions for the nonspecialist reader: "What (or who) is the subject?" and "Why is this subject notable?".

I'm glad to see your work here. I do have some insights based on the above checklist that I think will improve the article:

  • I think the lead can be improved in order to provide an accessible overview and to give relative emphasis.


Besides that, I think the article looks excellent. You've done great work, and I am quite happy to assist you in improving it. All the best, SFriendly.svg --Seabuckthorn  02:39, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi JG66! I hope you are watching this page and have not forgotten about this article. As a gentle reminder, I'm putting the article on hold. I hope you don't mind. All the best! SFriendly.svg --Seabuckthorn  01:58, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Ah sorry Seabuckthorn, I thought you'd be watching the article also, but I should have replied here anyway. I've made a few changes there. It's a tough one: I'm thinking some further cuts might be necessary in the main text, and/or I should completely rewrite the lead from scratch … Any thoughts on progress so far would be very welcome! Best, JG66 (talk) 02:04, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi again. I've done a bit more work on the lead without resorting to the more drastic steps mentioned above. I really think that's all I can do (that is, unless I start deleting points from the main text). I appreciate your patience through all this – what do you think of the lead as it is now? JG66 (talk) 04:34, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! Face-smile.svg It's okay, no need to be sorry. You're right. I should watch articles also. Apologies. Very sorry.svg The lead looks perfect now. Thanks! SFriendly.svg --Seabuckthorn  06:49, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Seabuckthorn. Great news … (and a fair amount of relief!). It's good to get another one up there. Take care, JG66 (talk) 07:08, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
