The Beatles and The (UK) Shadows - Cry for a shadow ? Completely crazy !

I know some of The Beatles ("Cry For A Shadow", instrumental parody penned by Harrison & Lennon-arr. Tony Sheridan, 08/1961) liked the music of The Shadows...Here 's a craz version of Apache played by Chip Hawkes (Tremeloes) and Mick Clarke (Rubettes) live at the Spirit of 66 in Verviers (BE) last 10 December 2009. Enjoy! I'm quite sure Mick did it on the purpose however it was all part of the act;)***As Chip did not announce all the songs, "Get Back" could not be filmed.***(C)Surfrider1962/Stephan Koenig for your pleasure and mine as well ! I've never heard a crazy cover like this one ;). This video is also available on MySpace Music and facebook and on Chip Hawkes' MySpace website.***Each time I see this video I'm doubled up with laughter ;)***Chaque fois que je regarde la vidéo, je suis mort de rire...Ces fausses notes voulues faisaient partie intégrante du show".shadows - apache - ep français - 07-1960Spirit of 66 - 10 décembre 2009 003 http://youtu.be/j6MmnF2Mo54

The Beatles : English translation of "l'événement marketing du jour"

beatles - 9-9-2009An event? Not for all the Belgian media notably RTL TVI. ***Shame on you ! *** On Wednesday 9/09/2009 fate jewel published by EMI UK comprising 14 enhanced CD's (+ 1 DVD ) fully remastered quasi in HD.*** The 14th containing the old Past Masters 1 & 2 released in the UK at the beginning of March 1988 .*** Well received in the UK (# 49 & # 46 March 19, 1988 but with less impact in the USA where they are ranked U.S. # 149 & # 121 U.S. the following 9 and 16 April .***To date, the question is whether we should absolutely get it one way or another or switch it off. This wonderful package (great work of remastering made by Guy Massey, Steve Rooke, Sam Okell along with Paul Hicks & Sean Magee at Dan Lacksman's SynSound Recording Studio in Brussels chosen by EMI Belgium) of which each CD has a gatefold cover sold this morning at 9:09am in record stores. I am doubtful as Gilles Verlant said the price is around 250 € (this afternoon I saw the price setted at € 199 but they were already sold like pancakes !). So, if you do not have anything yet by the Beatles ( fortunately Sir Paul McCartney was able to buy out the 251 songs [on some 365 listed] purchased by Michael Jackson [see ATV Music Publishing article] and that you have the financial resources and proper equipment (a digital amplifier which could possibly spread songs in 5.1 if you have a home cinema ).*** Note that the first reissues of LP's on CD were in monaural sound (AAD) and those with the stereo were so ADD that EMI wanted the "ADD" for all albums and the fans otherwise. EMI has finally yielded to the very last minute by putting an AAD patch on the ADD letters seen through/thru the box already printed on the inlay cards but this time all CD's are in full stereo and also available in monaural sound even the stereo ones!!!.*** March 7, 1987 as the group's back catalog systematically is released on CD, The Beatles' timeless popularity is underlined as they return to the charts all over the world .*** This 9/9/9 is not a coincidence since it's the former (new)Scotland Yard's telephone nr. which controlled the UK charts in the course of the 70's (see other article) due to shenanigans/mix-ups including at least two British showbiz personalities including Roger OO7 Moore's wife Edna May 'Dorothy' Squires (d. on 14 April 1998). Note also that these persons were convicted and anyway there are limitations.***Nota: The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl is still unreleased.*** I will forever be a fan and I am sure we will talk of them in 100 years or beyond and / or in the hereafter .*** LONG LIVE THE BEATLES!

The Beatles (Fr.) : l'événement marketing du jour - 9/9/9

beatles - 9-9-2009Un événement ? Sûrement pas pour tous les médias belges ! Ainsi, Grégory Willock n'en a pas touché un seul mot à son JT de 13:00 sur RTL TVI ni même Michel De Maegd dans celui du 19:00 !***Ce mercredi 9/09/2009 sort un bijou édité par EMI UK comprenant 14 CD's remasterisés pratiquement en HD par Guy Massey, Steve Rooke, Sam Okell assistés de Paul Hicks et Sean Magee (+ 1 DVD) au Dan Lacksman SynSound Recording Studio à Bruxelles (choisi par EMI Belgium).***Véritable événement musical de cette fin d'année, cette réédition des albums des Beatles était attendue depuis des décennies par les millions de fans du plus grand groupe populaire de l'histoire.***Tous les CD's sont "enhanced". Le 14° contenant les anciens Past Masters 1 & 2 sortis en GB début mars 1988.***Bien accueillis en GB (#49 & #46 le 19 mars 1988 mais avec moins d'impact aux USA où ils se classent US #149 & US #121 les 9 et 16 avril suivant.***Maintenant, la question est de savoir s'il faut absolument se le procurer d'une manière ou d'une autre ou de le switcher. Ce magnique coffret dont chaque "enhanced" CD est en "gatefold" se vend depuis ce matin à 9:09 chez les disquaires. Je suis dubitatif comme Gilles Verlant: le prix tourne autour de 250 € mais je l'ai vu affiché à 199 € et il se vendait comme des petits pains ! Si vous ne possédez encore rien des Beatles (heureusement que Sir Paul McCartney avait pu racheter les 251 [sur les quelques 365 répertoriées] chansons achetées par Michael Jackson [v/article ATV Music Publishing] et que vous avez les moyens financiers et le matériel adéquat (un ampli numérique qui pourrait éventuellement diffuser les chansons en 5.1 si vous possédez un home cinema).***A noter que les premières rééditions des LP's mono sur CD ne le sont qu'en mono (AAD) et ceux en stéréo le sont en ADD alors que EMI voulait du "ADD" pour tous les albums et sur l'avis contraire des fans. Finalement EMI a cédé à la toute dernière minute en apposant une pastille AAD sur les lettres ADD déjà imprimées sur les livrets.*** March 7, 1987: as the group's back catalog is systematically released on CD, The Beatles' timeless popularity is underlined as they return to the charts all over the world.***Ce 9/9/9 n'est pas une coïncidence puisqu'il s'agit de l'ancien no de téléphone de Scotland Yard qui contrôla le HP britannique dans le courant des années 70 (v/autre article) suite à des magouilles dont au moins deux personnalités anglaises du showbiz que je ne peux décemment citer ici. Notez que je le pourrais puisqu'elles furent condamnées et que de toute façon il y a prescription.***Note: le LP Live at the Hollywood est proprement ignoré.***Je resterai à jamais un fan et je suis sûr qu'on parlera encore d'eux dans 100 ans voire au-delà et/ou dans l'au-delà.***LONG LIVE THE BEATLES !!!

Just stopping by to say hi or hello - other tribute to the king of rock'n'roll (11/09/2008)

With his curl, his rasping invitation to "Rock Around The Clock" and the cheerful gymnastics of his musicians, Bill Haley has written himself into the pop history books forever. He conveys on record as few others have been able too, the musical style of an era that changed the face of popular music. Bill's rock and roll style evolved from the kind of music he had been playing in country and western groups and the rhythm and blues music he loved. He combined these two styles of music to create the sound that was to change the music scene for the generation of the early 50s. Like many others, Haley experimented with various line-ups and his first efforts on minor American record labels met with little response. With his group the "Comets" Haley scored his first real success, "Shake, Rattle And Roll" in 1954 which broke into both the American and British charts. The following year, his biggest and most familiar hit "Rock Around The Clock" was featured in the MGM film about teenage violence, "(The) Blackboard Jungle". This was a worldwide hit which sparked off a Haley hysteria that made national headlines when he and his Comets appeared in the film "Rock Around The Clock". Banner headlines proclaimes seat ripping in cinemas everywhere and the Haley formula went on producing more and more chart hits. His popularity at that time was remarkable and a European tour confirmed that Haley was indeed the 'King of Rock'n'Roll' - however, his reign coincided with the emergence of Elvis 'The Pelvis' Presley as a major force in rock music (Presley was 10 years younger than Haley but invented nothing in rock and roll music and anyway Jimmy Cavallo/Cavello And His House Rockers played rockabilly since 1951) and Haley gradually lost his hold on the pop record charts. Yet Bill Haley has retained a popularity that even today keeps him as the undisputed king and he remains possibly the finest exponent of rock and roll. ***Rock Around The Clock will remain one of the wonderful evergreens of all time.

Il avait apporté quelque chose de plus aux Beatles. Je présente à sa famille et à son entourage, mes sincères condoléances. Message to Sir Paul, Angie & Ruth McCartney, Ringo and, John & George in heaven: I am really sorry to learn the death from Billy. He had brought something moreover to The Beatles. Please, present at his family and his close relations my sincere condolences. Stephan.Stephan: thank you so much for the beautiful tribute to Billy Preston.

Updated at 10:45: pm [GMT].***L'organiste, pianiste et chanteur américain Billy Preston, qui avait été collaborateur des Beatles et des Rolling Stones, est mort dans un hôpital de Scottsdale (Arizona), mardi 6 juin, après un coma de plus de six mois. Il était âgé de 59 ans. Billy Preston a participé au dernier concert des Beatles, donné sur le toit de l'immeuble Apple à Londres en 1969. C'est son piano électrique que l'on entend dans Get Back, dont le 45-tours était sorti avec la mention "The Beatles with Billy Preston". (C) Le Monde.fr - 8 juin 2006.***De passage à Hambourg, c'est Little Richard qui emmène son protégé au Star-Club, afin d'y écouter un orchestre venu de Liverpool dont on commence à beaucoup parler. Billy Preston est alors loin d'imaginer que, quelques années plus tard, il créera pour les Fab Four le son unique de Get Back, à base de piano électrique Fender Rhodes (le single sera d'ailleurs vendu sous le nom «The Beatles with Billy Preston»).
