I have often thought of her sound as having a lot of Shirley Bassey ("Goldfinger" among other Bond themes) in it.

Another figure she invites some comparison to is Janis Joplin, both the good and the...

Of the non-singles on the album, "Love is a Losing Game" is a great tune, like a lost treasure from another era.

Does she write her own songs?

It's an amazing song, which isn't at all hurt by the fact that it is more than a little bit creepy. John would have probably have said it was "just" nonsense, but like Hamlet's nonsense "there is...

This song is one of my all time favorites. I tend not to think about what it is "about" or who it is "for," but what it expresses, how it feels. I am going to venture into trying to describe...

I have always loved the Bond intro to the U.S. Help, album. I made an mp3 of it from my old LP and the version on 1. The crazy where-ever-it-is National Anthem is my favorite instrumental piece on...

There is a "music only" feature on the DVD that features all the music in the movie (including the score) with no dialogue, sound effects, etc. It is a little odd to watch the movie this way, but it...

"All Things Must Pass" on iTunes

Dipped into the iTunes music store this morning, and was surprised and pleased to see All Things Must Pass in the new releases list. As of yet, there is no other Harrison stuff available, but it...

There must be a decent negative somewhere. The apple VHS edition is quite clean looking, and so is the material incorporated into the Beatles Anthology.

I have the same one. I'd be better off making an analog to digital transfer of my old VHS copy, I think. I figured that's what Netflix would have. It makes the movie seem way worse than it really...

That's the conventional wisdom, but as Paul will tell anyone willing to listen, at that stage in their career (pre-Yoko, one might say) it was Paul who was most interested in avant-garde,...

There is a nasal resonance in those final syllables (-tion) that is one of the few distinctly John things that I don't think Paul can actually do. Probably 'cos he doesn't have John's nose.

I had always been certain it was all John (while wondering, in more recent years ,why he would have sung lead on such a lame tune). Now it seems obvious that the choruses are Paul singing. But...

I have that version of "Imagine." It's an instrumental on the album Fire Up. The album is credited to "Merle Saunders and Friends" but the album features Jerry prominently throughout.

I haven't heard the cover yet, but "Revolution" is a natural choice for a country music version, just as it would be for a Blues version.
