Interesting to see Jordan quoted as referring to the Beatles as "the greatest band of all time".

Peace,

Thanks. Really enjoyed reading this.

Reminded me of the story in HBO's The Defiant Ones where Jimmy Iovine talks about his experience working with Lennon in '74/'75.

Listened to the new Ringo tune lat night - nice guitar riff by Steve Lukather, but couldn't make it through the whole song.

I also read Paul has written and recorded a Trump themed song... I don't think I want to hear Paul getting overly political in the same way Mick recently has.

This is a nice documentary, but I think the BBC/PBS one was better. It would be great to have something similar included on the upcoming anniversary edition of Their Satanic Majesties Request, although it seems it's not on the plans.



An all-new Beatles documentary, It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper & Beyond, is being released in the U.S. on September 8 on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD, by BFD distributed by The Orchard.

The film is director by Alan G. Parker, the director of Monty Python: Almost The Truth, Rebel Truce: The Story of The Clash, Never Mind the Sex Pistols, and Who Killed Nancy, among many others.

The film features rare archival footage unseen since the 1960s plus rare interviews with the Beatles’ original drummer Pete Best, John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird, Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein’s secretary Barbara O’Donnell, Beatles associate Tony Bramwell, Pattie Boyd’s sister Jenny Boyd, Beatles author Philip Norman, and more.

From the announcement: “It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper & Beyond examines the year 1967, the year that would arguably be the most crucial in the band’s career, a year in which they stopped being the world’s number one touring band and instead became the world’s most innovative recording artists, pushing the boundaries of what could be achieved in the studio.

“A devoted Beatles fan since the age of nine, Parker explores this period by filming interviews with former employees, fellow musicians, family member and journalists, all of whom were there at the time. These stories are in turn supported by a vast array of impressive archival footage, much of it not seen since first transmission. The result is a detailed examination of why the band stopped touring, how the Sgt. Pepper album was conceived and its recording at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios, its lyrics, the creation of its sleeve and finally its release. All this is set against a background of the band’s changing relationship with their manager, and the tragedy of his death, the creation of Apple and the powerful influence of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.”

Says Parker: “We’re combining first-hand accounts of the events that allowed ‘Sgt. Pepper’ to happen with rare and unseen footage that we’ve forensically unearthed from mainstream archives and private collectors. The last days of touring…. the execution of the album…. and the aftermath that it left behind will, I hope, give the audience an intimate sense of the band, the time and the impact of this extraordinary album.”

Same type of thing could be said of the too many Stones whiner threads on this board.
Don't like the video? Dont watch it.
Don't like that Stones album, Don't listen to to it.
Don't like that Stones song? Don't listen to it... but...

But that is not how it goes... people (seemingly non-Stones fans, or past Stones fans, ex-fans... seems like a lot of long long ago ex-fans post here) they do watch and listen and then come here and type as fast as they can to whine bitch moan and complain about everything Stones.

So to say a person can not complain about some band that quit over 40 years ago, a band that has had no new music in 40 years, yet is still blathered about as if they are the greatest ever is silly.


The Beatles are long past being boring... same with U2

Thanks for the heads up Cristiano.
For one reason or another, I missed the BBC/PBS documentary even though I remember reading and posting about it prior to airing....it kind of slipped under my radar.
Is it available to view anywhere?

It seems there's only a trailer clip on the PBS website, and the video is no longer available at the BBC website. There's a video on Dailymotion with portuguese subtitles, though.

EDIT: Here's a version without subtitles, also on Dailymotion.

The Beatles - Decca Audition, January 1 1962

[www.youtube.com]

Their failed audition w Decca. A blessing in disguise. It was hard for them to even get there that day. But George Martin relationship would have never taken place had they passed here.....

...they shot up higher than high; George went back and got the embarrased Dick Rowe, who was shamed mightily after passing on them pretty much right before their breakout Beatlemania period was starting....dragged him to see The Stones live, they were signed shortly after. Presto: a major recording contract and push-project for a major lable. Then Paul and John helped w an original which charted somewhat, higher than anything first steps before that...

They were friends an cohorts all thru the 60's. I owe a lot to the six Stones and the four Beatles....
