Another Grammy Museum event. I'd posted about the first mono listening party, but it got lost during one of the purges.

Back by popular demand! The Record Theater: The Beatles' Second Album (Capitol 2080) in Mono. Imagine a theater. As Chuck Berry would say "the place is packed." Lights go out. An album cover is on the screen. Suddenly, a vinyl record is being played.

From the first song on side one, to the last song on side two. No phones. No computers. No interruptions. 

To continue The GRAMMY Museum's celebration of The Beatles' 50th Anniversary in America during the year 2014, join us as we welcome you to the Clive Davis Theater to experience the legendary Beatles' Second Album in mono, as originally released on vinyl in 1964. After the record ends, former President of Apple Records, Jack Oliver and co-author of Recording the Beatles Brian Kehew, will join Etzioni on stage for a discussion.

Q: Which artist was the first to replace itself at number one on the US album charts? 
A: The Beatles with The Beatles' Second Album, which went to number one, knocking off Meet the Beatles!

Here's another clue for you all: 
The last song on The Beatles' Second Album ends with "YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!"

Members get 2 for 1 tickets, and they are $10 each.

Paul donated a Linda photo to an auction sponsored by the the Davy Jones Equine Memorial Foundation.

The photo was made available to the Examiner. It's also on the Standing Stone back cover.

I knew Paul and Linda were into horses, but had no idea Davy Jones was as well. I have a whole new respect for him after reading of his work in saving/rescuing these incredibly beautiful and noble animals. It pleases me that his daughters are continuing to do so in his memory.

Thanks very much for sharing this, parlance.

Something something "wood".

But seriously though, sounds interesting. I've been thinking about making a similar kind of film, actually.

Wogblog reports that Amazon UK had a host of Beatle CDs scheduled for release on the 25th June 2014 - before anyone gets too excited its the regular UK albums + 1962 – 1966, 1967 – 1970, Past Masters and 1. No details about these are up aside from being imports and they can't be the individual mono cd's as Let It Be and Abbey Road are there. 

One to keep an eye on.

The Appreciate video is out! [x-posted by @mrbellamy at the NEW thread]

 

feature=youtu.be

 

And here's a press release on it, via Beatlefan:

From MPL …

Newman the robot has teamed up with Paul for his new music video for the song "Appreciate". "Appreciate" is taken from Paul's latest studio album NEW, which was launched last year.

The video sees Newman on patrol in a museum of humans. Newman is drawn to one exhibition in particular. In a dimly lit sound studio he sees Paul McCartney sitting on a stool holding his iconic Hofner bass guitar. Paul twitches making a sound on the guitar and to Newman's astonishmenthe starts to come to life as the song "Appreciate" starts up. Paul comes closer to Newman staring at him through a force field that encloses him. Newman reaches through the force field and pulls Paul out of his exhibition. As the two of them move around the museum all the exhibitions start coming to life too.

Speaking about Newman, Paul said: "I woke up one morning with an image in my head of me standing with a large robot. I thought it might be something that could be used for the cover of my album NEW but instead the idea turned out to be for my music video for 'Appreciate'. Together with the people who had done the puppetry for the worldwide hit War Horse we developed the robot who became Newman."

The video was premiered exclusively in Japan this week where Paul and his band will be performing to sold-out crowds in Tokyo and Osaka. Newman will also be joining Paul on this leg of his tour.

The video was directed by Andre Chocron and filmed in London. Newman was designed by Mervyn Millar and Ed Dimbleby for Significant Object Ltd (significantobject.com).

From the article:
"People are like, 'Why do you do Beatles songs?' and I'm like, 'Because people love them.' I think it'll generate a lot of interest.

Translation:
"Because people love them and we suck. I hope like Hell that Beatles fans will blindly pay for this load of crap."

Should we wait and hear it before stating how utterly atrocious their efforts are or start now as it is going to be dreadful? Is this the same band who covered Lucy on some US tv show leading up to the 50th Grammys tribute?

I had to look up ploppers at Urban Dictionary, and there is nothing about that word to like.
