Watch the documentary Here:
A George demo of one of his songs for The White Album. It didn’t make the cut for The Beatles in 1968 but he later included it on his 1982 album Gone Troppo.
“I’m So Tired”
Paul singing John’s song.
Recorded on 1/14/69. Features John on vocals & electric piano, Paul on guitar, and Ringo on drums.
“All Things Must Pass”
This is a full band version (unlike the George solo version found on Anthology 3.)
A shorter version of this 9/16/68 recording can be heard on Anthology 3 (Disc 1, track #23 after “Step Inside Love.”)
An unfinished Lennon song recorded during the Get Back sessions.
“Brian Epstein Blues”
Cool documentary from Pitchfork on The Flaming Lips 1999 classic The Soft Bulletin.
The Terror, The Flaming Lips new album, is out in the US next Tuesday (4/16/13.)
My last post featured documentaries on The Beatles albums Sgt. Pepper & Please Please Me turning 40 (in 2007) and 50 respectively now it’s Pink Floyd’s turn:
The Dark Side of the Moon was released on March 1, 1973 making the current #1 album of all time on RateYourMusic.com (great site, by the way) 40 years old as of this past Friday.
Yes; legendary classic rock albums: You’re getting old.
And more recently BBC broadcast a documentary titled “12 Hours to Please Please Me” where they try to recreate The Beatles first album (which was mostly recorded in just one day – February 11, 1963):
You can stream Amok here:

We were hit by a hacker a couple of months ago so I had to re-install the site and things have been a bit funky for awhile. But I’ve finally got some time to get it together and hopefully everything is functional again.
As you can see there are some changes:
- I’ve added a “top bloggers” list to the side which is where active bloggers will be listed. If you join the site and add blog entries on anything close to a regular basis then your entries will be featured here.
- A lot a less ads. I’ve removed all of the Google AdSense ads as they were cluttering the site and barely making any money anyway.
- A bit more of a generic look but I think maybe it looks better anyway. I had to delete the old custom theme because of the hacking BS and start over again with the basic wordpress. On the plus side that means things are a bit more updated looking and more hacker-proof (this is not an invitation to prove me wrong as I’m not too confident about that anyway.)
- I’ll be adding more stuff in the coming days. If you’re a contributor (or a reader) and have any suggestions then leave a comment below.
