I was quite disappointed to learn Paul and Ringo only played together on two songs at last night's tribute 50th anniversary show. I was also pained that one of the songs, was With A Little Help From My Friends, which was what they played a few years ago, at another David Lynch event.

 

Having said that, I am hopeful, that the tv special and concert, is just one of many event's and releases for 2014 to celebrate the Beatles 50th anniversary. I have heard quite a bit of talk and rumor, from usually reliable inside people, that the third Beatles reunion song Now and then, could be released in finished condition, perhaps along with other special tracks, perhaps things like Carnival Of Light or Sour Milk Sea, or unknown takes and songs from the Get Back/Let It Be project. It is also known, although it was not shown in the DVD's that Paul Ringo and George did play I Saw Her Standing There, Roll Over Beethoven, and Love Me Do (with Ringo on vocal for the latter) during that jam.

 

Wogblog said directly, no hemming or hawing, that a video collection of the Beatles 1 album would be released towards the end of the year. That is accompanying videos for the 27 number one hits originally released on that album. I wonder if possibly, just a guess now, if a new video featuring Now and then, might be possibly be included as a bonus, incentive for that video album. Just a guess no inside info on my part.

 

Would it really have killed Paul and Ringo, to get up and just play four or five early Beatles songs, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary, maybe something like, I Wanna Be Your Man and Matchbox from Ringo, and I Saw Her Standing There, Can't Buy Me Love and And I Love Her from Paul, something along those lines, then close with Pepper and Hey Jude, what the heck, seems Beatles songs from 63-64 would have been more appropriate given the nature of the occasion.

* Per the Examiner, Paul and Ringo are confirmed for appearing on David Letterman for an interview. Also, it looks like Paul had to be convinced to take part in last night's Grammy celebration:

Billboard said a source confirmed that McCartney originally wasn't in favor of being involved in the concert to pay tribute to the Fab Four, and didn't decide until mid-January after talking to two Americans in his inner circle that he should do the show.

 

* A couple of photo round-ups from last night's celebration via McCartney Photo Blog: 1 and 2

* In light of the Grammy performance, Something Else article on Ringo's tandem drumming.

 

* Variety article on Beatles' business staying power.

 

* Fender article on the Wammy's party that Dhani hosted. And pics at FB.

* Last night I went to the Grammy Museum presentation by Bruce Spizer on the story of The Beatles coming to America. Really funny and insightful. We learned more about the role of Vee Jay Records, Capitol's resistance to promoting them and the role of a 15-year-old girl from Silver Springs, MD in getting them airplay. And I got my book signed. He's going to be at the Fest for Beatles Fans, so if you get a chance to see him, do!

I posted to Instagram (just cell phone pics): 1 and 2

 

* I got emails from a couple of photo gallery sites:

From Rock Paper Photo:

Rock Paper Photo is proud to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles' epochal performance on The Ed Sullivan Show by offering exclusive Fine Art prints by acclaimed photographers Henry Grossman (above photo) and Astrid Kirchherr that document both the performance and the days and months immediately following.

And next week we will announce a special release of exclusive, never-before-seen images from the historic broadcast that you won't want to miss! READ MORE

 

From Morrison Hotel:

Please join us at our New York and West Hollywood galleries during the month of February for an exclusive showing of many unseen photographs of The Beatles from the early years, chosen from the photographers who had exclusive access to the band.

[*snip*]

This exhibition is curated by Julian Lennon, who is himself a renowned photographer and on the heels of his new record Everything Changes and the documentary  Through The Picture Window

February 7th - 28th at 116 Prince Street (2nd Floor) in SoHo, NYC

February 7th - 28th at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, LA

I thought Lewisohn had been promising unlimited runs of this book. Or was he only referring to the standard edition at the time?

I remember hearing that too. Either we were misinformed or something changed. Apparently there is no US deluxe on the way either.

Well, that pretty much kills any hopes that I had of Ringo performing onstage without the aid of another drummer.  It's not that he's the only one who does it, Phil Collins always played with Chester Thompson during Genesis and his own shows, for much the same reason that he alternates between fronting and drumming, except that Phil will also play on his own for other occasions.  I just didn't like how Abe Laboriel, Jr. was in the shadows (literally) during the Grammy performance yet I could clearly hear his drums over Ringo's.  Ringo wasn't audible to my ears still he had the bright lights shining on him, to say that he was "air-drumming" wouldn't be much of an exaggeration really.  There's a couple times where Ringo crashes his cymbal and you can see it wobble, but you can't really hear the hit.  The more I think about it Ringo shouldn't have played on 'Queenie Eye' at all, after all, Paul didn't play on 'Photograph' so why put Ringo out there just for the sake of putting him "out there"?  This isn't the "Out There" tour!  It probably would've created more anticipation for the upcoming 50th Anniversary TV Special had they just teased us with the two solo performances.  I think that the Grammys have taken a little something away from the mystique of seeing Paul & Ringo onstage together again, I guess that there are many who (just like the old days) want to simply see them onstage together, whereas I personally want to see and hear them perform together again...:-)

Via Reddit, as part of the run-up to the CNN special, an article on Beatles, bootlegs and genius by Penn Jillette.

This is the first I've seen of this...Reportedly, the 2009 mono albums are set to be released on vinyl later this year?

http://variety.com/2014/music/.....201073393/#

Its been rumoured for a while, they were reported to be getting released last year but nothing came of it. I wonder if eventually there the US albums also released on vinyl as well, wouldn't be a surprise if they are.
