Subject: BS: Paul is Undead
From: ichMael
Date: 13 Jun 10 - 10:13 PM

I was generally depressed, watching the wreckage of my youth, as Sir Paul McCartney turned up at the White House the other day to accept the sort of honors that used to go to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong — you know, old guys.

What made it worse was how the announcers on National Public Radio felt obliged to explain to their listners who the Beatles were and why they were important. (Are any NPR listeners too young to remember the Beatles?)

So, I was in exactly the right mood for "Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion" by Alan Goldsher, which comes out June 22 from Gallery Books ($15 paperback).

1984. Campus library at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Four young undergrads talking about music. One mentions the Beatles. Another responds, "You know, that's that band Paul McCartney was in before Wings." Response: "Yes, that's right" and "Okay now I remember."

That was just 1984. Now it's 2010, 26 years later. 26 year olds these days were born 14 years after the Beatles broke up.

It's not the 60s any more.

I'll be 70 in a few months. McC is only a couple of years younger. The other night one of our PBS channels carried (for pledge week) the 'return to Shea stadium' concert, recorded last year, he seemed every bit as dynamic as at the first Shea bash. What is his secret?

By the way, and co-incidentally, today is the coral anniversary of "I've Just Seen a Face", recorded 35 years ago at Abbey Road studio on June 14, 1975.

Fans of the song who have not already done so should go to YouTube, search the title, and enjoy the many amateur 'cover' versions available there.

"By the way, and co-incidentally, today is the coral anniversary of 'I've Just Seen a Face,' recorded 35 years ago at Abbey Road studio on June 14, 1975."

I think that would be 1965 -- 45 years ago.

Brilliant EJ. Though I half- thought the thread was about ME when I saw the title. I had a near- life experience once, you know.

Thank you. Somehow I didn't think that looked right even as I posted it. It was June 14, though, I double-checked. So make that sapphire anniversary.

What's the significance of the recording date for "I've Just Seen a Face"? It's certainly not the first Beatles recording ~ not in 1965. Was it perhaps the first recorded at Abbey Road studios? Or is it just that it's a song recorded on today's date?

Beatles' first US release was "I Want To Hold Your Hand"; not sure of the date, but certainly prior to my high-school graduation date of 1965. I believe that their very first single release (in the UK, of course) was "Please Please Me."

Sir Paul's "return to Shea Stadium" concert was not actually held at Shea, which had been demolished just a year earlier, but at its replacement as the new home field of the NY Mets, Citi Field, built immediately adjacent to its predecessor.

Only that it's a KILLER song, and recorded on yesterday's date. But "Yesterday" was recorded on a different date - I think.

"I Want To..." was their first US release on Capitol. I think that "She Loves You", on Swan, may have beaten it by a few days, but I'm not sure.

I'm not sure about the Heisenberg principle either.

Follow-up: According to Wikipedia, "She Loves You" (Swan 4152) was released on 16 September 1963, about three MONTHS, not days, before "I Want to Hold Your Ham".

I'm STILL UNCERTAIN why this thread is in the non-music section.

He closed the show at the Isle of Wight festival a few days ago.
There were thousands of young people there who knew exactly who he was, knew all the songs, and sang along-just like their mothers and fathers did before them!
Cheers
