In March of 1956 Powell and his combo record "The Poor People Of Paris" (a French song of origin by Edith Piaf as "La Goualante (popular lament) Du Pauvre Jean" on French Columbia Magic Notes HF 599 in February 1954).
Plastic Ono Elephants Memory Band are : John Lennon-Guitar, Keyboards / Yoko Ono-Keyboards / Stan Bronstein-Saxophone / Wayne "Tex" Gabriel-Lead Guitar / John Ward-Bass / Gary Van Scyoc-Bass / Jim Keltner-Drums / Rick Frank-Drums / Adam Ippolito-Keyboards.
John Lennon makes his only major appearance at a concert in New York's Madison Square Garden for the One To One charity. Critics regard it as his first solo performance. He is joined on stage by Stevie Wonder (Superstitious) and Roberta Flack for Give Peace A Chance finale. The re-election of Nixon in 1972 and pressures to have Lennon deported from America were perhaps contributory factors to the political commitment which was the driving-force behind Some Time In New York City (in America this double album, Lennon teams for one disk with group Elephant's Memory). July, 1972 : album makes US #48. The Beatles' song publishing arm, Northern Songs, refuses to recognize some of Yoko Ono's composer credits with her husband, and release of the album is delayed in UK.
Lyrics about the oppression of women, the Attica prison riots and Northern Ireland were attacked as simplistic and extremist, but the album/LP's powerful musical impact was enhanced by spirited rock'n'roll backings from the New York group Elephant's Memory. It was packaged with a second record containing material from two live sessions, with the Frank Zappa's The Mothers Of Invention and a 1969 band, at London's Lyceum, including Eric Clapton, Keith Moon and Delaney and Bonnie (Lynn) Bramlett.
October, 1972 : Some Time In New York City reaches UK #11. Also known as LIVE in NEW YORK City for CDs (PARLOPHONE CDP 7 461196 2, UK, 1986). We all shine on...John Lennon. R.I.P.

Bill Haley "Rareties" LP, Malaysia, AMBASSADOR A 98100 (completely unknown of origin? : I'm not quite sure at all !)
This LP compilation in 1979 is still completely unknown of origin. I remember when I bought it, in early January 1980, the record dealer told me it was coming from Malaysia. No, it wasn't. This tremendous LP has been manufactured and released in the USA (America) in 1979. J'appelle ça de la basse vengeance : j'en ai par dessus la tête que les anglais et les français (ces derniers ont purement et simplement supprimé une bonne discographie toutefois considérée comme un torchon irrécupérable!] me prennent pour un rigolo ou simplement pour un imbécile. ["you're the expert"! My foot! (English-speaking Wikipedia)] sous le fallacieux prétexte - parce que je n'hésite pas à (d)écrire la vérité - qu'ils se croient les uniques papes de Bill Haley alors qu'en Belgique nous sommes bien mieux informés qu'eux!). De toute façon, s'ils ne détiennent pas l'info avant quiconque, elle est considérée comme fausse, voire pourrie! Il y a des articles qui dérangent beaucoup de monde: tant mieux! La vérité n'est pas toujours bonne à dire. Il est hors de question de fausser la vérité et de toute façon, je n'en ai rien à fiche!...***I call that low revenge: I have some over my head which Englishmen [(Pommies :-)] take me as a funny guy or simply as a nunskull. ["you're the expert"!] My foot! (English-speaking Wikipedia which destroyed the DECCA Sessions as well as the other ones) under the fallacious pretext - because I don't hesitate to write/tell the truth as true as possible - that they believe they are the quite unique popes on Bill Haley (it's not bad, but I've seen much better!!) whereas in Belgium we got a better information (early 1970 for me and Alain Darmor 20 years beforehand!!) than them!)! In any event, if they don't hold information before whoever, it is regarded as false, rotten! There are articles which disturb many people: hardest the better! Chris (G.): just have a look! Convinced? Think, you might have to update and correct your own discography. So, the truth is not always good to say… ! Anyway, it is out of question to twist the truth and I couldn't care less what they're up to! Pure de papas, it's quite hot here in Belgium...(today June 1, 2013, the sky is blue ;-) http://youtu.be/t6LDwZSyYHA : Viva la rock r 'n' roll from the German motion Picture by Werner Jacobs "Hier Bin Ich, Hier Bleib' Ich" (Here I am, here I stay).

The Magic Collection (a division of Telesonic Holland), ARC records MEC 949078 in 1983 and also on M next CDES 61 released in France in 2002 under license to San Juan, 2001.***Here 's another history from Goldworthy and Disa: A.M. could only have joined the AFDB of TCSC of SR in 1950 saying that Hugh Tracey also put the tune on tape on 8 June 1951.***This version has been issued (SWP032/HT21) on June 8, 2006 by Sharp Wood. http://www.disa.ukzn.ac.za/samap/content/skokiaan***A sung version also exists in Shona Zezuru.

Radio City Music Hall, July 7, 2010
Ringo Starr has announced the first batch of dates for the North American summer tour supporting his 15th and latest album, Y Not, and, once again, he’ll be joined by his All-Starr Band. The 11th rendition of the outfit features rhythm guitarist Wally Palmar of The Romantics, guitarist Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter and Gary Wright on keyboards, Mr. Mister frontman Richard Page on bass, and Gregg Bissonette on drums. He may also have God, whom he has recently discovered, on his side — so this tour is sure to be a can’t-miss.
The tour will kick off with two dates in Niagara Falls late in June. Ringo and the crew will stay for a couple weeks in the Northeast (including Ringo’s birthday gig at the Radio City Music Hall!) before heading south and hitting the Hard Rock Live arena in Hollywood, Florida. They’ll cross over and hit up a couple midwest and westcoast spots, including the tour finale at the Greek Theatre in L.A. We’d assume there will be at the very least an Oregon date and a Northern California date to fill in that week-long gap at the beginning of August.

All their videos can be seen on YouTube and Facebook (and some of them at MySpace) with their friendly permission.
I filmed this video while there were playing it at the Fiestacity in Verviers on 28.08.2010. The original version was cut by The Top Notes in 1961. 1962: The Isley Brothers move to Wand Records, where they team with producer Bert Berns. Blues ballad Right Now is another flop but, for the follow-up, Berns presents his own song Twist And Shout (originally by The Top Notes). July : Twist And Shout tops R&B chart and peaks at US #17, becoming a classic reaching a wider audience through/thru The Beatles version. With the current dance craze, Wand has The Isleys record Twistin' With Linda; it makes US #54. Twist And Shout makes US #61. This video is also featured on their MySpace website. Jan.11, 1963: The Beatles complete 10 new tracks for their debut album Please Please Me in one session at Abbey Road studios in 15 mins. short of 10 hours. John's vocal for the said cover is recorded in 1 take as an afterthought to complete the album's tracks.
Still at the same place on 27 October 2010 - Get Back...Jo Jo=>from an idea of a Chuck Berry's song Jo Jo Gunne (10/1958).
26.04.1969 : Get Back tops UK chart, the only Beatles single to debut in the UK at #1. On it, Billy Preston receives a label-credit as "The Beatles with...", the only artist ever to do so. A few months later (11/1968), Preston is not credited on the "White Album" [because of its plain white sleeve (a reversal from Sgt.Pepper's lavish one)] because of his A&M Records' contract.

In fact Alan Freed called Dim Dim The Lights the grand daddy song of Rock 'n' Roll. It opened the door for Rock Around The Clock to get another shot at the charts.
