Wogblog reports that an expanded edition of John and Yoko's August 1972 One To One Concerts will be coming out soon using material from both shows – the 1986 album featured tracks from the afternoon show only whilst the '98 Lennon Anthology included three tracks from the evening performance. 

Hopefully there will be a collectors edition that includes both concerts in full along with some of the rehearsals – there is a cracking performance of Working Class Hero that surfaced a year or so back on a radio station (see this thread).

From Reuters:

The U.S. Congress is working to update laws on who gets paid for recorded music, in a possible omnibus bill, as old CDs pile up at yard sales and music lovers increasingly shift to streaming services such as Pandora and Spotify.

One bill, the RESPECT Act, would close a loophole that allows digital music services, like SiriusXM, to stream music recorded before 1972 without paying for them. These include legends such as The Beatles, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross and other Motown artists.

More at the link.

From the Grammy Museum:

Great Guitars: Laurence Juber
Presented by American Express
Monday, July 14, 2014; 8:00 p.m.
American Express Presale begins Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.
General onsale begins Thursday, June 19, 2014 at noon.

First internationally recognized as lead guitarist in Paul McCartney's band Wings, Laurence Juber has since established himself as world-renowned guitar virtuoso, composer and arranger. Juber, known to his fans simply as "LJ," has released 22 solo albums during his five-decade career. The latest, Under an Indigo Sky (Solid Air Records) is a jazz/blues-tinged solo guitar recording that was mixed at Hollywood's legendary Capitol Studios by top engineer Al Schmitt. Juber's LJ Plays The Beatles album was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's all-time Top Ten albums. His solo arrangement of "The Pink Panther Theme" was featured on the Best Pop Instrumental GRAMMY-winning album Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar. His performance of "Stand By Me" was heard nationally in a Diamonds Are Forever commercial. As a studio musician, he can be heard on recordings from artists as diverse as Dan Hicks & the Hot Licks, Paul Williams, Seal and Barry Manilow, and he is featured on the soundtracks to hundreds of TV shows such as Home Improvement and movies including the Academy Award-winning Dirty Dancing, Good Will Hunting and Pocahontas. Juber's latest endeavor, Guitar With Wings, is a lavishly produced book co-written by music historian Marshall Terrill and featuring a foreword by Denny Laine, that tells the story of Juber's career told through his own words. Through candid, never-seen-before color and black & white photos, vintage advertising materials, guitars, equipment, memorabilia and the six-string legend's encyclopedic musical memory, Juber takes readers on a unique, rock-n-roll journey. Please join us as we welcome Juber to the Clive Davis Theater for return of our popular Great Guitar series. Juber will be joined by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, Scott Goldman, for an in-depth discussion. After the interview, Juber will perform a selection of songs and will sign copies of Guitar With Wings.

Wogblog has pictures of the US edition of the upcoming AHDN box along with the front covers of various countries releases – no prizes for guessing which country has the crappiest cover.

From the Examiner:

Here's Paul-l-l-l-l-l!: The full show from the night Paul McCartney's appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” to celebrate Carson's birthday in 1984 is included in “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series: Volume 3,” just out on DVD, one of six in a new series of discs featuring full episodes from the classic NBC late-night show.

We were lucky enough to see the show live with Carson twice. Hopefully, there are tapes of the funny things he did when the show went to commercials. That was something to see.

Edit: It's actually Vol. 2, not 3, if you follow the link.
