THE FAB 4 PLAYED AT DUNDEE’Ss CAIRD HALL

It was the last time the Fab Four played at Dundee’s Caird Hall — and their set couldn’t even be heard.
Following their first Dundee gig in 1963, a year later The Beatles played to a packed-out concert hall with 6,000 screaming teenage girls drowning out the band’s entire set.
Ecstatic fans screaming until they collapsed was common at a Beatles concert, but reports of their last show in the city said the “bedlam” was on a whole new level.
This Monday marks the 50th anniversary of that famous gig.
A newspaper report from the day after said: “Almost a year ago I stood deafened and dazed, at the fantastic welcome given to John, Paul, George and Ringo on their first visit to the city.
“Compared to last night’s ear-splitting bedlam — that earlier occasion sounded like the ‘pop’ from damp framework.”
As McCartney first graced the stage, the noise levels rose to deafening and “nerve-tingling” proportions.
The report said “scores” of paramedics were called into action to help collapsing fans, as songs like “She Loves You” and “Love Me Do” only managed to reach the ears of the first couple of rows.
“Girls from all parts of the hall, the majority of them sobbing ecstatically or in a state of collapse, were led out to recover. The final tally of the casualties was 50,” the report said.
“The Beatles accepted the welcome with a grin, a little wave, and got down to the near impossible task of being heard.
“They made it — but only the merest whisper managed to reach the first few rows.
“It was battered back by wave upon wave of sound.”
As sheer pop-crazed madness coursed through the concert hall, extensive security was called in — which included local and national wrestling champions. The report continued: “A solid wall of muscle was provided by 40 powerful stewards, many of them local and national wrestling champions, shoulder to shoulder along the front of the stage.
“At strategic points throughout the hall another 35 Beatle-protecting giants patrolled aisles, often reseating frenzied girls.”
At the time The Beatles were at the peak of their powers, and had returned to Dundee after playing shows extensively throughout Britain and America.
Tickets to their comeback gig were so highly sought after that even the Countess of Strathmore wanted to see them play.
She had a spot of tea before and a long friendly chat with the lads from Liverpool before sitting in the wings to watch them play.
But huge levels of decibels created by all the screams apparently spoiled the whole show for the pop-loving countess.
She said at the time: “The audience was appalling, and completely bad-mannered to make so much noise.
“Most of the time I had my fingers pressed over my ears to keep out the awful noise.”
“Suddenly, unbelievably, it was all over,” the news report added. “The last strains of ‘Long Tall Sally’ died away and the boys bowed their way out.”

THE BEATLES LYRICS by Hunter Davies

THE BEATLES LYRICS
Hunter Davies
Weidenfeld & Nicolson, $49.99
Never before has anyone attempted to track down and publish the original versions of the classic songs, many of which have never yet been published. These documents have ended up in the hands of collectors and friends of the Beatles, scattered across the world at museums and universities. Hunter Davies knew and worked with the Beatles during their heyday, and wrote their first and only authorized biography. In this collection, he has tracked down and reproduced over 100 original handwritten manuscripts of their songs, reproduced here - and, in almost every case, for the very first time. For the Beatles, writing songs was a process that could happen anytime and anywhere - songs might begin as a scribble on the back of an envelope, a napkin or on hotel stationery. From them we gain a unique insight into the remarkable creative process of the greatest songwriters of all time; what they were thinking, how they changed their minds, and then came up with the words which are now known the world over - complete with all the scribbles and crossings out. Each song is given its context: what the Beatles were doing at the time, how and when they came to write and record it, how the original version differs from the final one. Almost every Beatles song has a great story behind it, whether it is 'Yesterday', 'Eleanor Rigby' or 'Yellow Submarine'. Many books have appeared about the Beatles, but in the end what really matters - and will always matter most - is their music. Their music comes out of their lives, just as their lives and emotions are reflected in their music. The Beatles Lyrics is the definitive story of their lives, as uniquely told through their music.
 
(Davies) has managed to track down handwritten versions for 100 of the band's 182 lyrics, and it's undeniably fascinating to observe these scribbled seeds, particularly when they contain alterations, crossings-out and abandoned verses... The other main attraction of the book is Davies' unrivalled access to the group. As the only authorised Beatles biographer during the band's existence, he spent time observing Lennon and McCartney as they wrote songs, and his vivid account of the pair holding court amongst friends in the latter's music room... is just one of several fascinating behind-the-scenes moments

WINGS 'VENUS AND MARS' [TV Ad] - VIDEO

By June 26th, 1975, Wings' Venus and Mars had been out for a month, and its lead single, "Listen to What the Man Says," was continuing its climb to the top of the U.S. and U.K. pop charts. 
'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning' film director Karel Reisz was commissioned to make the television commercial for the album. Shot on 35mm film in a house in west London in May 1975, the 60 second advertisement features Wings playing a game of snooker, with a soundtrack that includes snippets of 'Venus And Mars', 'You Gave Me The Answer', 'Listen To What The Man Said', 'Treat Her Gently' and 'Medicine Jar'. It was first broadcast on ITV in the UK on 26th June 1975.

"GOOD OL´FREDA" WILL PLAY ON NOV AT THE FLORA-BAMA

Good Ol' Freda' will play on Nov. 16-17 at noon both days at the Flora-Bama
 
In a round about way, those four lads from Liverpool who took the music world by storm in the 1960s are coming to the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival.
The 30th festival kicks off on Thursday, Nov. 6, and while the final day, Sunday, Nov. 16, won’t exactly be Beatlemania, it will have some akin to it: Fredamania.

Kathy McCabe of Baltimore and part-time resident of Gulf Shores since 2004 is bringing the film she produced, “Good Ol’ Freda,” about Beatles secretary and fan club president Freda Kelly to the GulfCoast along with the film’s star, good ol’ Freda herself.

Freda Kelly, at 17, became the Beatles secretary and president of the official Beatles Fan Club. She is, longtime friend McCabe says, the only person employed by the Beatles from beginning to end of the madness that was Beatlemania.
Since its release in March of 2013 at the South by Southwest Film Festival, McCabe and Freda have been touring almost nonstop for screenings all over the world in what McCabe affectionately has dubbed Fredamania.

On a beautiful fall afternoon overlooking Raley’s Bayou in Orange Beach, McCabe recounted the story leading up to the film, from her own infatuation with Beatles’ music, to meeting friends in Freda’s circle, to becoming friends with Freda herself.
And years of not talking about the Beatles. The whole thing exploded on the eve of the film’s release for Freda, McCabe and Director Ryan White, when “Good Ol’ Freda” became the first independent film to ever receive permission to license four actual Beatles songs from the original masters.
Two screenings will be shown during the 30th Annual Frank Brown Songwriters Festival at one of Freda’s favorite places she visited on a trip here a couple years ago, the Flora-Bama.
After each screening on Nov. 16 and Nov. 17 in the Bama’s main room, Freda will take questions from the audience and sign copies of the DVD. Screenings will start at noon both days.
Those screenings, McCabe says, are the absolute best because Freda has enchanted crowds everywhere she has been since the film went viral in 2013.

PAUL IN NASHVILLE

 






























































Paul waved to fans in Nashville Thursday evening as his motorcade made its way into Bridgestone Arena for his sold-out concert.





































It was a thrilling six-second brush with fame for roughly two dozen McCartney diehards lined up on the sidewalk outside the loading dock at Music City Center — which connects underground to the arena. Paul smiled and pointed out fans as he drove by.
