I was on facebook and I noticed a post by the Beatles' facebook page. They are gathering live footage, photos, audio, and such for a feature film on Beatlemania.

Details are on thebeatles.com and it even has its own page The Beatles Live Project. Sounds very promising and exciting. This hopefully will result in a comprehensive overview of them live (sometimes forgotten or discarded) as well as significant live package being released (ie not 1 best live compilation cd and a 60 mins film).

 

The offical video for the project:

Yoko exploiting Johns legacy to make a few quid. Im amazed.

Surprised she hasnt made it the Imagine clothing line where half the material is missing spouting how we should be wearing less clothes as then we would all be able to live in peace not being burdened by the latest fashions and therefore reduce the pressures on those who cannot afford.

Still could have simply shoved out another pointless reissue/greatest hits collection with the same 17 songs as all the others.

 

Any chance we can get Live In New York City remastered and complete?

The BBC reports that rare colour photos of the beatles during their '64 world tour are going up for auction with the winning bid estimated to be between £10,000 - £15,000.

Oh there is a slideshow of some of the pics.

Great find, mmm- thanks for sharing.

When I see photos of the Beatles taken in public, I usually try and spot other members of their entourage. In the 3rd photo, I see Neil Aspinall behind and to the right of Paul. To Neil's right, is that Derek Taylor or would this have been too early for Derek to be part of their circle?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Angie McCartney has written a book:

Macca, me and my mum's marzipan butties - Beatles star Paul McCartney's stepmum on life just outside the spotlight

I won't post the whole article but here's the bit at the end:

Angie has now written her autobiography, My Long and Winding Road, and is launching it with two nights of music and entertainment celebrating The Beatles at the Philharmonic Hall, hosted by ECHO columnist Pete Price, and featuring appearances from former Brian Epstein assistant and Beatles Fan Club Secretary Freda Kelly and The Fourmost’s Billy Hatton.

“I’m so excited to be coming back to Liverpool,” she says. “I have missed the Liverpool sense of humour so much – that and proper fish and chips. I can’t wait to be back.”

Angie’s Beatles Celebration will take place at the Philharmonic Hall on January 30 and 31. Tickets are £25, including £5 off the book, from http://www.liverpoolphil.com. My Long And Winding Road is published by ROK, priced at £14.99

From Norris Green to California

ANGIE now lives with her daughter, Ruth, and son-in-law Martin in California, where she has started her own venture, McCartney Multimedia, Inc. a creative digital agency in Los Angeles, and her own thriving online organic tea business, MrsMcCartneysTeas. com with a percentage of the profits going to the Linda McCartney Centre and their breast cancer research team in Liverpool.

Angie is also an ordained Minister of Religion, licensed to perform weddings in all 50 States of America.

She appears in a live chat with Pete Price on Radio City every Wednesday at 1am.

Another article mentions that Cynthia Lennon wrote the foreword.

The BBC reports that artists are going to try and recreate the recording of the Beatles Please Please Me album tracks recorded on the 11th February within 12 hours in the same order as the beatles did back then. It will be broadcast live on BBC radio 2 and a documentary will be broadcast of the sessions on February 15 on BBC4 called '12 Hours to Please me'. Some folks involved in the sessions back in 1963 will also be there including Tony Barrow.

Its part of a series called The Golden Age of Radio which lasts for 2 weeks.

Questions

Since these sessions lasted for 585 minutes (9 hours 45 mins) back then where does the other 2 hours 15 mins come in?

Will some group try and record Hold Me Tight and then leave it off the album when they realise it just isnt working?

Will stories come out that another song was also tried but never be substantiated and become a long held legend (Keep Your Hand Off My Baby)?

Will there be a big jar of cough sweets sitting near?

 

I hope they do it on 2 track and realise how restricted the recorcing process was back then, not like nowadays where you have 256 tracks and overdub endlessly without any worries about messing it up.

I can only presume that they arent doing the 2 singles on the album but it might leave a few listers baffled why they arent recording the title track which is also one of their most important songs or Love Me Do.

They did something similar for Pepper a few years back where artists tried to replicate the songs on the album. Didnt see it at the time and only have ever caught the section where Travis tackled Lovely Rita.

Should be an interesting listen.

Short incomplete clips of many of the Beatles promos have been uploaded to the official Beatles Youtube channel, you can also watch many incomplete beatles music videos on the official Beatles website.. Alternatively you could watch most if not all of them complete on Youtube by doing a general search.

(Why would anyone want to watch an incomplete clip when its full elsewhere?)

Hopefully this is Apple getting around to releasing them commercially and not some pointless exercise to make us raise our eyebrows and then yawn with deep boredom.

Anyone in New York this weekend? ;->

Previous unheard Beatles recording to be unveiled this weekend

A previously unreleased and never before heard Beatles recording will receive its first ever public airing during Peter Asher's upcoming “A Musical Memoir of the '60s and Beyond” shows at the Iridium in New York on Jan. 20, a musician connected with Asher told Beatles Examiner Wednesday.

According to the source, the recording "has never been heard anywhere before, not on bootleg, on radio, anywhere." The song is reportedly connected to Peter & Gordon.

More at the source.
