I wish they would just issue LIB with a disc of outtakes of songs. I only have a bootleg DVD and it is a burned DVD.

The photo on the cover of Introducing the Beatles on Vee Jay. Is it by Astrid Kirchherr? I just saw a photo of hers on the Snap Gallery (London) web site and it looks similar to the same session. Just curious.

FYI
The Rolling Stones - In Studio: Greatest Albums from the 70s to 00s SHM-CD Box Set
Review from an UK purchaser:

This isn't cheap but it is worth every penny - including VAT & customs, which cost me another £80. On a recent holiday to Tokyo I picked up a SHM-CD of Let It Bleed and when I heard it, the jaw-dropping sound quality made me wish I had the rest. And now I do!

1 - The packaging. Absolutely stunning. Every album from 1971-2006 is collected here in miniture replica vinyl sleeves, themselves packaged in protective plastic jackets. Sticky Fingers and Undercover both come with alternate sleeves, and Some Girls has four!

2 - The extras. Exile on Main Street doesn't include the recent bonus disc but has better packaging and includes tiny replica postcards. Also inserted throughout this set are posters, stickers and even a replica subsciption advert for the fanzine.

3 - The sound. Best of all. Every album is the most recent remastered edition, but with the added bonus of being presented on the Japanese Super High Master CDs. I've owned all these albums before on standard CD, and believe me when I say that they've never sounded as good as this!

All of this is collected in a handsome numbered limited-edition LP size box, which is also beautifully designed on the inside. If you can afford to treat yourself, I insist that you do. A thing of beauty!

No, it's by Angus McBean. The photo was first used on a Parlophone EP and the credit is printed right on the FRONT of the sleeve! Astrid never took colour photos of the Beatles, at least not in 1962. But undoubtedly it was a 'copy' of Astrid's picture, just as Robert Freeman's 'with the Beatles' photo is a 'copy' of another of Astrid's.

Hi N.,
I just wondered because I've seen shot attributed to Astrid with them sitting around the same chair and individual shots as well in the same chair. The link is here:

But your right, this is B&W.

Just some news for Kink-philes: The first three UK Kinks albums ("The Kinks", "Kinda Kinks" and "The Kink Kontroversy") have just been released in 2-disc deluxe editions. Even more exciting, "Face To Face", "Something Else", "Arthur" and "Muswell Hillbillies" are all being given similar treatment on June 6! ("The Village Green Preservation Society", of course, has already received 3-disc deluxe treatment--and a great set that was.) Not sure what happened to "Lola...Pt 1" but perhaps they're saving it for a bit because it was their most commercially successful album of the classic period.

Any Beatle fan who has not heard these Kinks albums from the 1966-71 era should check them out ASAP.

'Rave On Buddy Holly' Celebrates Rock Icon's 75th Birthday And Enduring Legacy

Daringly Original Tribute Collection Features My Morning Jacket, The Black Keys, Modest Mouse, Nick Lowe, Florence + The Machine, Cee Lo Green, Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Julian Casablancas and more.

In his short-lived but extraordinary life, Buddy Holly left behind a body of work so enthralling, his enduring influence is nearly impossible to overstate. The melodic joy and fierce independent streak at the core of his artistry is profoundly felt on Rave On Buddy Holly, a 19-song collection of indelible Holly covers by a rich assemblage of current musical visionaries and creative kindred spirits. Fantasy/Concord will release Rave On Buddy Holly June 28, 2011.

Yes to Buddy Holly, somehow underrated for the impact he had.

If anyone here has never delved into the Buddy Holly catalog, they owe it to themselves to explore his music. It's great stuff and very influential on the Fabs.

Jerry Seinfeld was a guest on comedian Tom Papa's limited edition show "Come To Papa" on SiriusXM, and the iconic comedian discussed a wide range of topics -- including the fact that he was inspired by The Beatles when deciding to end his hit sitcom "Seinfeld" after nine years.

"The Beatles ended too soon for me," said Seinfeld in the interview. "That hunger for The Beatles has lasted my whole life. Whenever a Beatles song comes on the radio I reach for the volume and turn it up, because I still haven't gotten enough of them. That was really how I made the decision."

John Walker, one of the founders of 1960s group The Walker Brothers, has died at the age of 67.

His spokeswoman said Mr Walker died on Saturday at his Los Angeles home after a six-month battle with liver cancer.

The band was formed when three unrelated US musicians - Scott Engel, John Maus and Gary Leeds - adopted the Walker Brothers name in 1964.

Their biggest hits included the songs Make It Easy On Yourself and The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Any More).

The group's fame flourished after travelling to the UK in the 1960s and they continued to score huge commercial success in the 1970s.

Dee Zee,

Just wanted to let you know that the CDs arrived...and I'm impressed. The Yellow Submarine CD was better than the original release BY FAR and it was nice to hear AHDN in all it's glory. Thank you so much.

David Mason has died and I hate talking about obituarys. Life is for the living and if you are reading this, you are not dead.
David Mason was the trumpet player on "Penny Lane". That trumpet is a signature of that song. Mason contends that it was not "speeded up" in post recording and has in the past proved that by playing the piece.
"They were jolly high notes, quite taxing, but with the tapes rolling we did two takes as overdubs on top of the existing song" sez Mason.
He used a B-flat piccolo trumpet for the high pitched solo.
He also played on "A Day In The Life", "Magical Mystery Tour" and "All You Need Is Love".
Paul McCartney "discovered" him while watching Mason on television playing a classical piece by Bach.

Google or Bing.....los angeles times/trumpet player on penny lane

The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore is tremendous. Central song to the movie "Truly Madly Deeply".

Some of their music was certainly melodramatic but I love the sun song when "you're without love".

I've just a few minutes ago moved the "Silver Collection" by the Walker Brothers from my wish list...where it's been for a while, to my cart.

Scott Walker had a "unique" solo career. It may be Scott singing lead on the sun song...but they were the Walker Brothers.

The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore
(Bob Crewe/Bob Gaudio)

Loneliness is a coat you wear
The dark shade of blue is always there

Emptiness is a place you're in
With nothing to lose and nothing to win

The sun ain't gonna shine anymore
The moon ain't gonna rise in the sky
The tears are always clouding your eyes
When you're without her

That's sad news about David Mason, but I'm sure he lived a long, full life--and has left his permanent place in history. That trumpet solo will be heard over the airwaves for decades--nay, centuries--to come.

Just heard about this, never thought of it before.
The 27 Club, also occasionally known as the Forever 27 Club or Club 27, is a name for a group of influential rock and blues musicians who all died at the age of 27.
