Saw this (and it's pretty much a direct transcript) on PBS Friday night, American Experience: 1964, regarding the Beatles' interactions with Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay in Miami in 1964:

"So they went to have a picture taken with Sonny Liston...and he took one look at [them] and said 'I ain't posin' with them sissies'.  So the Beatles...second best, they were taken to Cassius Clay't training camp...[the Beatles and the narrator, a reporter, were locked into a room and were "raging and cursing" about it, waiting for Clay]...suddenly the door bursts open - there is the most beautiful creature any of us had ever seen - you forget how big Cassius Clay was...he was laughing and joking...and he said 'C'mon Beatles, let's go make some money!  And they followed him out...like kindergarten kids...then afterwards, the Beatles leave, Cassius goes back into his dressing room...and says 'Who were those little sissies?'".

I just thought it was funny that both of them referred to the Beatles as "sissies" and the Beatles ended up having way more impact on the world than any sports figure (that I know of).  Pooh on them! (I shouldn't say that, poor Liston got embarrassed, and Clay [Ali] is at the end of a 25 year battle with Parkinson's)

Half of what I say is meaningless...

And it's making me feel like my trousers are torn

Dailymail article on the auction of an early Beatles photograph.

One of the earliest photos of The Beatles in Liverpool's Cavern Club is to be auctioned along with a series of other recently unearthed snaps of the band at the beginning of their career.

The picture, taken in 1961, features Paul McCartney at the front of the stage and Pete Best on drums - a year before he was replaced by Ringo Starr. 

Stephen Bailey - the manager of The Beatles Shop, in Liverpool - said the memorabilia sale includes a series of negatives brought into the Mathew Street store by a man who casually told him: 'My father was a professional photographer and these might be of interest to you.'

Wonder if these people (not wearing black leather jackets) can be identified.

Perhaps early girlfriends! Maybe some of them are still around on the forums. That'd be a real trip!

Studio Daily article on the AHDN 4K restoration. Pretty technical, but it may shed some light on the Train song:

[Legendary session guitarist Vic] Flick and friends do not appear on one cue which has been baffling fans for decades — a brief rock-and-roll clip heard when Ringo flips on a portable radio while riding on a train. “That’s not me,” Flick states. So who is it? Notes Giles Martin, “My instinct says it’s not The Beatles, but more likely the session players my dad would have gotten in for the soundtrack recording.”

The track is indeed driven by Cattini and likely Weighell, the drummer tells StudioDaily. “That’s definitely me," Cattini says. "The guitars, I think, were ‘Big Jim’ Sullivan and Jimmy Page. They did a lot of the rock stuff together in those days, particularly on these kinds of sessions.”

Bassist Herbie Flowers, who played on many such recordings, though not these, before playing for the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed and, later, George Harrison, conjectures the 37-second cue may have simply been a library track recorded by Martin (or another producer).

“It wasn’t uncommon in those days when, if a session was booked for three hours, and musicians completed their work early, to be asked then to record bits and pieces for use as library tracks,” Flowers explains. “George Martin would no doubt have done a lot of that type of recording, where publishers ask composers for 12 short tracks. One might be ‘fear’ or ‘motivation’ or ‘mechanical’ or ‘mad rock and roll,’ like that one. Film companies would snap these things up, because they didn’t have to pay for the recording or any licensing, other than payment to the publisher.”

Posted at Paul's FB:

Paul took the crowd of 50,000 at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on a Magical Mystery Tour back through time at last night’s historic 'Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert'.

During a rarely performed rendition of Little Richard's 'Long Tall Sally' — the last song to be performed in its entirety at The Beatles’ August 29, 1966 final concert at the same venue — the crowd was transported back to that very same night courtesy of a collection of previously unreleased photographs by the late Jim Marshall Photography LLC.

The only photographer to be granted unfettered access to photograph The Beatles’ last ever concert, Marshall’s images were granted this exclusive usage by Paul for his bittersweet goodbye to this iconic ballpark. The images will next be viewable by the general public with the October 14 release of a new book on Marshall’s work The Haight: Love, Rock and Revolution (Insight Editions).

The Haight... is currently available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

From OK!

Kanye West wants to record collaboration with Paul McCartney

IT looks like Kanye West is trying to add to his long list of collaborations.

Mr Kim Kardashian has previously teamed up with Chris Martin, Jay Z and Elton John, and now wants to duet with Sir Paul McCartney.

Kanye was recently seen backstage at a Macca gig,and it's said he'd hoping to team up with the former Beatle.

A source said to The Sun: "Kanye and Paul have known eachother for a long time but have become more friendly recently.

"There's every chance they'll head into the studio together.

"Kanye really respects music legends and is still putting the finishing touches to his new album.

"He has been tapping Macca up for a while about working together.

"They've had a few meetings with each other but both of them always keep their collaborations under wraps until last minute."

Fingers crossed this happens.

Great news. Always looking for reasons not to by things and a duet with Kayne West is one of the best.

Examiner reports that 

OxTango Music, which earlier this year released its version of the Beatles' Star-Club tapes that many felt was an upgrade in sound from previous versions, announced Aug. 16 it will release four new CDs of rare Beatles material Sept. 20. There will be three 2-CD sets of “Historic Live Recordings,” and a fourth called “The Get Back Nagra Tape Remasters.” The company says the new CDs are taken from “the best possible sources” and are “fully remastered from the ground up” as the Star Club set was.

Additional details are at the linked page. 

No idea how they will get most of this thru, especially the 'Get Back' material, as surely Apple own the rights.
