* Cute story about one of John's ties being auctioned. It was given to a woman who used to attend the Cavern Club lunchtime sessions.

 

* From The Examiner:

Author Chuck Gunderson, who we interviewed recently in Beatles Examiner, sent us some of the pictures and pages Aug. 14 from his forthcoming book, Some Fun Tonight! The Backstage Story of How The Beatles Rocked America: The Historic Tours 1964-1966” and has allowed us to preview them here.

Cheeky quote from Paul in The Daily Mail:

Paul McCartney says he still fancies the ‘really good-looking’ female fans who flock to his concerts.

But Macca, who is married to New York heiress Nancy Shevell, says he finds the situation ‘embarrassing’ because many of them are younger than his children.

‘I’m not allowed to look at them the way I used to.

'I look over their heads and say, “Hello, yes great, yes I love you.” We have got a lot of babes out there.’

The 71-year-old, who is currently  on a North American tour, also revealed he has no intention of reducing his number of live performances, and admitted that the failure of The Beatles to reform before John Lennon’s death in 1980 remained one of his biggest regrets.

From The Examiner - Paul has proposed doing a concert at Candlestick Park before it's demolished.

According to the report, McCartney made the suggestion just prior to hitting the stage for Aug. 9 for the Outside Lands Festival in Golden Gate Park. When the city's Mayor Ed Lee told McCartney the city was putting together a film to honor the Beatles' 1966 concert there, McCartney, according to the paper, said, 'Well, if you are going to tear down the stadium next year, we should think about us doing the last concert there. You know my agent. Why don't we follow up with him?"

Well that was fast. Regarding the Rain lawsuit, I can definitely see why Rain would be upset. I saw Let It Be a week ago when I was in New York and the two shows were so very similar that I thought they might have been affiliated with each other in some way. Assuming Rain came first, Let It Be was almost exactly the same show (same sets, same costumes, same premise, same exact show almost). I thought Rain was the better show because they did have a few more songs, and also had some songs you wouldn't always expect to hear. The only song that Let It Be used that was maybe a bit different was Two Of Us.

From the LA Times:

 

A collection of early photographs of the Beatles taken by Astrid Kirchherr will go on display in a West Hollywood gallery starting in September.

"The Early Beatles Collection," scheduled to run at the Leica Gallery from Sept. 7 to Oct. 19, will feature images Kirchherr took during the filming of "A Hard Day's Night" in 1964 for Stern Magazine, as well as some of the images she took of the musicians during their Hamburg, Germany, period in 1960.

Kirchherr is a German photographer who followed the Beatles during their formative years. She developed a relationship with bassist Stuart Sutcliffe -- the so-called fifth Beatle -- and was engaged to him until his death in 1962 at the age of 21.

Their relationship formed the basis of the 1994 movie "Backbeat," which was recently turned into a stage production that ran at the Ahmanson Theatre this year.

The West Hollywood exhibition is taking place in a gallery named for the German company Leica Camera, a renowned brand that has been around since the early 20th century. The gallery said that Kirchherr took many of the photos in the exhibition with a Leica.

From WogBlog:

In an internal list of upcoming releases, Universal Music recently revealed plans to re-release The Beatles' "Live At The BBC" along with a new release, "Live At The BBC Vol. 2" on October 4th, 2013. The date is tentative and may be subject to change. "Volume 2" will be BBC recordings of The Beatles not available on the previous volume. "Live At The BBC" was released in 1994, a forerunner of a landslide of new material from the Beatles' archives.

The BBC had a habit of reusing their tapes, which means that most of the Beatles radio shows from the sixties were wiped, however quite a few have later been rescued, courtesy of listeners taping the shows at home and BBC transcription records, which were sent to radio stations abroad. In 2012, the BBC had a campaign, asking their listeners to bring the home taped shows to the BBC for review. Hopefully, some more (or better quality) Beatles shows will have appeared in the wake of this.

More at the link.

Oh wow... I have Live At The BBC and have featured many songs from it on Fab Files, and have used BBC broadcasts not on that album on other episodes, so yeah, much looking forward to it... hopefully they'll throw their 1962 episodes with Pete Best on this collection.

Another Live At The BBC? Great! :D

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

* Sad news: Sid Bernstein has passed away. From The Examiner:

Sid Bernstein, the man who was responsible for promoting the Beatles' iconic Shea Stadium concerts as well as their 1964 appearance at Carnegie Hall, died Aug. 21 at age 95, publicist Merle Frimark confirmed to Beatles Examiner.

"What do The Beatles, Tony Bennett, the Rolling Stones, Fats Domino, Tito Puente, Judy Garland and a host of other luminaries have in common? They all have been touched, in some way, by the inimitable promoter, agent and manager extraordinaire, Sid Bernstein. Mr. Bernstein passed away on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 in New York City, said his longtime friend, publicist Merle Frimark.

More at the link. Also, a Liverpool Echo article and BBC News.

 

* For the completists - the Bloody Beetroots promo single has a track not commercially available:

The promo for the recent Paul McCartney appearance on the Bloody Beetroots track “Out of Sight” has an additional track that isn't otherwise commercially available, author Jim Berkenstadt, author of “The Beatle Who Vanished,” told us Aug. 21. “Out of Sight” is a sonically surging remake of the song on “Electric Arguments.”

“I know you have reported on McCartney's Bloody Beetroots track in the past. As we know it is available on iTunes (and Amazon),” he told us. “However, I recently obtained the promo only CD of this song from UK. It contains another track that I believe is not available commercially: “Out of Sight (Instrumental).” It clocks in at: 4:31 versus the iTunes track with vocals that tracks in at: 3:28.”
