|Feb-20-11|| ||Lennonfan: <travis> somebody just stumped me with the question"which was the only beatles album which they never released a single from"?? I eventually worked it out,just wandered if you yourself knew...amazing really!!|
|Feb-20-11|| ||Lennonfan: And i presume you've heard of the british band "oasis",who copied all their material from the beatles back catalouge? well they split last year and the lead singer,liam gallagher,formed another band called "beady eye"(named,so when they release records they'll be on the record shelf in shops next to the beatles lol...i kid you not!)...well anyway as a rock n roll fan and obvious beatles fan,you really should hear their new album...its like a mix between the who,the stones,and of course the beatles,with exceptionally heavy influence from lennon's solo work in particular....i think you'd like it..gallagher's voice sounds brilliant,heavy guitars...its really good|
|Feb-21-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Aha <Tin Pan Alley> is buzzing- I learned last night what "Tin Pan Alley" actually was whilst watching <The Last Waltz> turned up to "eleven."|
Robbie Robertson explains its importance just before he introduces <Neil Diamond> on stage to give a remarkable performance of "Dry your Eyes."
|Feb-21-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <T-Dawg> I'm sure you've seen The Last Waltz- but I thought of you when I watched Robbie Robertson and Eric Clapton exchange guitar solos at that concert.|
Poor Robbie- he has a unique, liquid style of his own- but when he played with Eric, he froze up and you could see it- his muscles tightened in his body and hands- visibly- and it affected his play, which became clumsy.
Eric smiled with understanding as he effortlessly let his guitar become part of his body, technical perfection, he didn't even look at his instrument- he just looked at Robbie while he played.
|Feb-21-11|| ||Travis Bickle: Hi Jess, I read a Clapton interview where he said if a young guitar player wanted to challenge him on stage, Eric said he wouldn't get into an exchange with a young gunslinger. Clapton said that he would just play what he was going to play. ; ) I think thats why Clapton & George Harrison were such good friends because they had that laid back cool confidence and not a lot of ego. |
Yes I've seen The Last Waltz but never all the way through, always bits and pieces when it's playing on the tv. I should buy the dvd to that great concert, even Bob Dylan & Ringo Starr were there.
|Feb-21-11|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's the perfect song for midnight blues as it's just past that here in Chicago.|
Midnight Blues - Gary Moore
|Feb-21-11|| ||ChessBookForum: Thanks for movie recommendation <Blind Lemon Travis>!!|
heh- yes as you suspected no trailer for me, I'm going to find the movie and watch it without spoilers.
So far I have liked every single one of your recommendations, so don't hesitate to drop more as you think of them.
|Feb-21-11|| ||chancho: The Jeff Lorber Fusion - Think Back And Remember
|Feb-22-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Thanks for the <21 grams> reminder- I had forgotten about that.|
I did however download and watch "Little Big Man" WHAT A GREAT MOVIE.
Dustin Hoffman is so young and he should have got Best Actor award for that.
Brilliant historical western with CHIEF DAN GEORGE who I think came from Canada.
|Feb-23-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <jessicafischerqueen> Im glad you enjoyed Little Big Man! ; P Jess the early to mid 70's was a great time for Cinema! That was way before they had bean counters targeting the 15-25 year old market for vampires, explosions, zombies & special effects garbage!|
|Feb-23-11|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's a little Jazz Rock!
Peter Gunn Theme - The Blues Brothers
|Feb-23-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <jessicafischerqueen> I'm pretty sure CHIEF DAN GEORGE got best supporting Actor for his role in 'Little Big Man'.|
P.S. "Today is a good day to die"! ; P
|Feb-23-11|| ||chancho: Larry Verne
|Feb-23-11|| ||jessicafischerqueen: <T-Money> heh and when Chief Dan George lays down to die but the rain splashes on his face and wakes him up-|
this movie has real comedy, real warmth and also real horror in it.
One of the best movies I ever saw, not just one of the best westerns.
If you can think of any more please keep sending the recommendations.
You see I'm so addicted to horror films that unless somebody tells me to watch something else...
btw I don't know if I mentioned it here already but "Ringu" the Jap version of <The Ring> is a very, very fine film. Not just a great horror movie- actually it's one of the best horror films ever imo.
It has almost perfect timing and pacing- not one wasted moment, or unnecessary plot detail, a very very tight story that is very mysterious but makes perfect sense by the ghastly conclusion.
Remember- watch the Jap version!
Watch out for sneak attacks though.

Sorry to be scarce but I have to go back to work next week so I'm trying to make some lesson plans.
|Feb-26-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <Lennonfan: <travis> somebody just stumped me with the question"which was the only beatles album which they never released a single from"?? I eventually worked it out,just wandered if you yourself knew...amazing really!!> |
Sorry I forgot about this post. I would guess SGT Peppers Lonley Hearts Club Band didnt have a single released, although I remember as a kid listening to my transistor radio and hearing 'A Day In The Life' on the radio, so I don't know. Another thing you have to consider is Beatles record material was put out differently on American & U.K. albums, with U.S. albums getting usually 10 songs to Great Britain's 14 songs, until SGT Peppers when all Beatle albums had the same content from them on.
P.S. 'Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever' were the 1st songs recorded for the album SGT Peppers but because of pressure from manager Brian Epstein for a new singles release didn't make the album. They were later placed on the 'Magical Mystery Tour' record.
|Feb-26-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <Lennonfan> I have a little quiz for you.
Which Beatles song that was released on The Beatles Second album in the States but was never released on a Beatles album in the U.K. until the 1978 'Rarities' came out? No cheating and using google! ; P|
|Feb-26-11|| ||Travis Bickle: Reflections Of My Life - Marmalade
|Feb-26-11|| ||Travis Bickle: Here's an artist Mary Hopkin that Paul McCartney produced along with Bad Finger for the Beatles new record label Apple in 1968. |
Those Were The Days
Goodbye (rare clip)
|Feb-26-11|| ||valiant: Travis, what's your favourite hymn?
Patti Page - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzFa...
Willie Nelson - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTdP...
|Feb-27-11|| ||Travis Bickle: <valiant> Thanks for the songs! I think both versions are very nice. Pattie Page who had a wonderful voice does a very good rendition of this great Gospel song but I like the feeling Willie Nelson gives it that makes it better for me. |
P.S. Here's a few Christian songs I like that aren't Hymns but are more Pop songs about Jesus Christ.
#3 Jesus Is Just Alright - The Doobie Brothers
#2 Crying In The Chapel - Elvis Presley
#1 When The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash
|Feb-27-11|| ||valiant: <Travis> Powerful post & songs! Thanks!|
I learned via youtube that it's Willie Nelson's sister Bobbie Nelson who plays the piano so beautifully on the gospel album http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSDu...
