The Beatles, "Honey Pie" from the White Album (1968): Deep Beatles
A tribute to British music hall. A “fantasy song.” A curious throwback, considering its 1968 origins. No matter how one chooses to describe it, “Honey Pie” reveals Paul McCartney’s continuing love of British music hall, big bands, and Hollywood musicals. It even owes a debt to jazz, as John Lennon performs a Django Reinhardt-inflected guitar solo. Like so many other Beatles tracks, “Honey Pie” results from a melting pot of influences, music that the foursome were reared on through television and film.
Despite being released on an album widely considered to be a time capsule of a turbulent year, “Honey Pie” traces its roots to the 1920s, specifically through a hugely popular London bandleader. Billy Cotton formed the London Savannah Band, his first orchestra, in 1924; originally a traditional English dance band, they transitioned into a music hall-style show featuring humor and even a tap dancer. After building a large following, Cotton debuted his first BBC radio show, the Billy Cotton Band Show, in 1949. The show proved so popular that hit was also broadcast on BBC television, beginning in 1957.

Led Zeppelin’s Self-Titled Debut Turns 50: A Track-by-Track Retrospective | Billboard
ack when Led Zeppelin made their maiden flight, rock critics expected them to land with a thud. But fifty years ago today (Jan. 12), Led Zeppelin unleashed their self-titled debut, a perfect storm of gonzo drums, banshee wailing and mystical ballads that remains a tentpole of 1970s rock.
Today, Led Zeppelin has been codified into rock mythology as a classic -- but rock critics weren’t so sure at the outset. “No special appeal in sound,” concluded a Denver review of their 1968 live debut. “Weak, unimaginative songs,” scathed Rolling Stone in an infamous hatchet job.

Inventor of Styles: Jorma Kaukonen on Baxter’s (1967) |
Jorma Kaukonen, the lead guitarist for Jefferson Airplane, developed not one but three original lead guitar styles in the Airplane’s prime recording period of 1966-1968, one for each great album: the reverby Surrealistic Pillow, epitomized by the relentlessly note-bending solo at the end of “Somebody to Love”; the noise-infested, eloquently scrambled work of After Bathing at Baxter’s; and the almost painfully sharpened wah-wah voice of Crown of Creation. In the Pillow to Crown sequence his creativity is astounding. His own explanation for this is that he really didn’t know how to play rock lead — he came into the Airplane with only the most basic vocabulary, not quite like Eric Clapton coming into Cream — and he had to figure out from this generic base what would work for Airplane music, even as other elements of that music were being freshly forged.
The most striking of these achievements for me, the outstanding cause for Hooks celebration, is the playing on Baxter’s. To get some historical sense of how this arose let’s listen to a progression of samples.
On the first album, Jefferson Airplane Takes Off (August 1966), Kaukonen plays wholly unsurprising licks on a blues scale (the emphasized notes being the 1st, flat third, fifth, and flat seventh), as though he had played with a similar band the night before. But this is just a negative description; positively, he’s filling in a piece of a good, incipiently interesting band sound.

The Life of Jean Seberg in Pictures - Flashbak
"Her every movement is graceful, each glance is precise. The shape of her head, her silhouette, her walk, everything is perfect." - François Truffaut
In 1974, after a rough few years, Jean Seberg was asked in an interview how she was coping, “I’m feeling around,” she said, “if you want to know what I’ll be doing ten years from now. I couldn’t say. It’s like asking a woman whether she’ll be graceful at 45…
Six years later, aged 40, she was found in the back of a car on a side street in Paris. It was August and her decomposing body, wrapped in a blanket, had lain there undiscovered for ten days. The cause of death was an overdose of barbiturates and was deemed by the French authorities as “probably suicide”. A note to her son was found:
Forgive me. I can no longer live with my nerves. Understand me. I know that you can and you know that I love you. Be strong. Your loving mother, Jean.
She was only just  eighteen when she flew to England in 1956 to play the leading role in the movie version of George Bernard Shaw’s Saint Joan. As an utterly inexperienced student from Marshalltown, Iowa, she had been chosen from 18,000 hopefuls by director Otto Preminger in a $150,000 talent search. The script was rewritten by Graham Greene and she had to appear along side John Gielgud, Anton Wallbrook and Richard Widmark. It must have been incredibly daunting.
The film was a flop both critically and commercially and while it was flawed in many ways most of the critics seemed to single out the teenage Seberg in particular. The Times wrote: ‘Joan was young, certainly, and ignorant, but she had outstanding qualities…and of those qualities Miss Seberg shows not a trace.’ ” The New Yorker’s John McCarten wrote of the movie, ‘The leading romper is a seventeen-year-old girl, who, as played by Jean Seberg, makes one long to give her a solid, and possibly therapeutic, paddling …’
Preminger was attacked for his presumption, Seberg said, “for trying to make an actress out of a country bumpkin like myself, and I was told (by the critics) to get back to the farm. It was amazing, the cruelty of some of the reviews.”

Led Zeppelin’s Eponymous Debut Album ‘Led Zeppelin’ Turns 50 | Anniversary Retrospective — Albumism
Happy 50th Anniversary to Led Zeppelin’s eponymous debut album Led Zeppelin, originally released in the US January 12, 1969.
Led Zeppelin’s self-titled debut is turning 50 and it’s a reason to celebrate. As far as inaugural albums go, Led Zeppelin is a genre and era essential.
1969 is a world away from the present day. But the one thing we have in common with it is the variety of music being made. Of course now there’s quadruple the choices and genres, but for an analog world, 1969 offered plenty of options. From Zappa’s Hot Rats to The Who’s Tommy to Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica to the decade-defining attitude on The 5th Dimension’s The Age of Aquarius, Zeppelin was doing what their contemporaries were doing: standing out. Looking back on a debut album more than twice my age allows me perspective critics of the 1960s never had. So how does it hold up?
Led Zeppelin has barely aged a day! The record starts with a bang: a simple chord riff still instantly recognizable five decades later. “Good Times Bad Times” announces who Zeppelin is: they’re loud and they’re precise. The best part of the whole album is how full of surprises it is.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience : BBC Radio "Pop North" 1967.01.30 (previously unreleased
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Recordings for "Pop North",
(recorded at) BBC Broadcasting House, Great Portland Place, London.1967.01.30
(broadcast on)BBC “Pop North” for BBC Light Programme. 1967.02.09
01. Hey Joe (3:51)
02. Rock Me Baby (1:43)
BBC radio broadcast> reel to reel> Wav
From me to you! Well from The Johnny Kidd fan club to you!
Here we have the first known recordings from the Jimi Hendrix Experience for BBC radio. To be exact, nearly two of the three track reportedly recorded from this session. What a joy it is to hear this session for the first time [it brought me quivers down the back bone and left me shaking all over!] as it has been lost to us since it was broadcast. That the JHE were no strangers to the BBC at this time is a known fact but all previous visits had been for Top Of The Pops Recording sessions.
Often we overlook the wonderful research done by some people in the early days of Hendrix collecting, here we owe a debt of gratitude to Caesar Glebbeek who first reported this session way back in Univibes #7, that’s late 1992!
Of the three songs recorded that day, Hey Joe (3:40), Rock Me Baby (2:40) and Foxy Lady (3:20) it is the latter that has still to turn up. From the two tracks we have, Rock Me Baby is cut short. The recording stops dead and it appears the reel to reel tape simply ran out. This would also explain the missing Foxy Lady from our found source.
The band’s debut Radio appearance was for the BBC Light Programme, a show called “Pop North” and was broadcast between 13:00 and 14:00 hours on the 9th February 1967.
The process for these broadcast from the BBC was not quite so straight forward and things are a little confusing due to a cancelled contract, re date schedule in this instance.
The JHE recording session took place on the 30th January 1967 at Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London. The three songs would have been supplied to the BBC Manchester Studio [Playhouse Theatre] for playback to a live audience and introduced at that session by Ray Moore. This on the 7th February 1967. It is this recording of the show that was then aired on the 9th February 1967.
See here for a little more detail and some pictures of that studio.

It’s amazing what can be found on reel to reel tapes at car boot sales!
Fenders Fingers and Friends.
Those friends being those great guys at The Johnny Kidd fan club, SteveE and of course our tormentor Jonsattic (I'm just the messenger here - please do no seed on other trackers. That will be done once things are going well here).

Electric Ladyland: Deconstructing the Deification of Jimi Hendrix | Podcast | Consequence of Sound
The Opus returns for another podcast expedition -- this time, into Electric Ladyland!
The Opus returns to journey deep into the uncanny realm of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s Electric Ladyland.
Hendrix’s unique, genre-shaping career, coupled with his untimely death, has placed him in a state of rock and roll ubiquity. He’s everywhere – but between the over-saturation of his biggest songs and the over-simplification of his legend, time has masked the finer details of his story and sound.
In this introductory episode, host Ernest Wilkins is joined by rock critics Corbin Reiff and Dan Hyman to unpack the mythology surrounding Electric Ladyland and the man himself — the brilliant, the deified, Jimi Hendrix.
The Opus is a co-production of the Consequence Podcast Network and Sony.
For more Hendrix, check out Electric Ladyland – 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, a new box set featuring previously unreleased demos, alternate takes, and a live bootleg. Pick up a copy here or stream the original album in full below.

30 Years Ago In the Studio: Led Zeppelin I- Jimmy Page, Robert Plant | In The Studio with Redbeard
Thirty years ago In the Studio  episode #20 for November 7, 1988 featured what turned out to be my first of many subsequent in-depth conversations about the Led Zeppelin legacy with band mastermind Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. There was considerable buzz in the rock music world recently when Jimmy Page, the brilliantly gifted architect of the Led Zeppelin sound since it was unleashed  fifty years ago, announced that he was personally overseeing a comprehensive updating of the entire Led Zeppelin catalog as deluxe editions with remastered sound, new twenty-first century artwork and graphics, previously unreleased demos, alternate mixes, and those notoriously bootlegged live Led Zeppelin concert performances.  Both Led Zeppelin I   and II   came out in 1969 barely ten months apart,  and then  the transitional, often under-appreciated Led Zeppelin III ,  which together comprised the initial deluxe reissues. To explore each, we arranged for Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones to go “under the hood” to reveal the thoughtful approach to the Led Zeppelin sound, echoes of which are apparent to this very day.- Redbeard

Led Zeppelin - Record Collector Magazine
Fifty years ago this month, on 7 September 1968, the four-man line-up that would soon become Led Zeppelin performed their first-ever gig at the Teen Club in Gladsaxe, Denmark, a suburb of Copenhagen.
The audience had gathered at what was actually a school gymnasium for a concert they thought would be featuring The Yardbirds; however, Jimmy Page was ushering the band through a transitional period. While still being billed as “Yardbirds”, fans would soon realise that this new line-up was vastly different from their precursors.
The original Yardbirds had enjoyed a string of hit singles in the mid-60s and three of the most noted UK guitarists had passed through their ranks – Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The hits had long since dried up in their home country, but latterly they had established themselves in the US on the back of the psychedelic boom.
Despite notable success on the emerging rock ballroom circuit and airplay on the FM radio stations, three of the Yardbirds members – Keith Relf, Chris Dreja and Jim McCarty – called time on their tenure. This left Page and manager Peter Grant with the rights to the Yardbirds name and a series of scheduled gigs in Scandinavia.

Led by Sean Bonniwell, they hit the top twenty in 1966 with “Talk Talk,” one of the rawest singles released at that time. It was also prescient of what was to come, with its down-tuned guitars, later appropriated by Black Sabbath and any number of heavy metal bands
Their debut single and only chart hit, ‘Talk Talk’, was a surly diatribe about alienated youth that barely lasted two minutes but staked out its territory right from the start:

The Beatles’ ‘White Album’ Resurfaces in Enthralling, Expanded Form to Mark Its Half-Century Milestone | Album Review — Albumism
The Beatles
The Beatles (a.k.a. The White Album) Super Deluxe Edition
Capitol
****
Okay, so this is going to be a long one. It’s not only about the legendary, polarizing and super-long 1968 self-titled double-album by the Beatles, more affectionately known as The White Album. It’s about its 2018 reissue subtitled the 50th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition. A lot has been said, written and debated about this iconic album. It’s diverse, unfocused, charming, confusing, and most importantly, it gets to effectively showcase a band morphing into what they didn’t know was going to be their final form.
In the context of the composition, recording, and release of this album, the Fab Four solidified their status as a youth force for Western culture with no parallel in pop music. The double-LP fully displays a dualism ever-present in their discography, a fame-fueled social claustrophobia, along with a wide openness for new trends and sounds coming from contemporary artists. The presence of ska, music hall, proto-metal, musique concrète, acoustic ballads, and even Chicago blues spoof efforts have all been famously noted in assessments of the record.
The broad genre and style range makes it clear that each band member was diversifying their interests while distancing themselves from the Beatle brand they had created. The loose, jam-like arrangements on some themes exhibit the Rolling Stones and The Band as influences. Soul music luminaries like Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and Sam Cooke seem to have impacted Paul McCartney’s delivery. Elmore James-like 12-bar-blues songs are more present here than in any other of the group’s previous LPs. Once it dropped in November 1968, The Beatles was met with acclaim by American and British press, which has aided in propelling it to become the group’s best-selling effort to date.

Clapton leaves
The year’s-end release of Five Live Yardbirds had coincided with The Yardbirds’ most prestigious outing yet. Earlier in 1964, the group toured as support to Billy J. Kramer And The Dakotas, one of the other Liverpudlian lights in Beatles manager Brian Epstein’s NEMS stable.
Epstein caught several of the shows and pronounced himself utterly bowled over by the opening act — so much so that, as he set about organising The Beatles’ Christmas concerts at the Hammersmith Odeon, he personally invited the Yardbirds onto the bill.

Electric 1967 Ford Mustang Lookalike Has 840 HP and 315 Miles of Range - The Drive
It'll also allegedly do zero to 60 miles per hour in just 2.2 seconds.
Russian startup Aviar Motors has announced plans of building first-generation Ford Mustang lookalikes with all-electric powertrains, making an enormous 840 horsepower and over 700 pound-feet of torque.
The yet-to-be-built concept will purportedly use an aluminum chassis with carbon fiber bodywork, modeled after the ultra-popular 1967 fastback version of the pony car. However, the appearance is the only element that will be patterned after the Ford production model—you won’t pop the hood and find a carbureted gasoline engine, that's for sure. 
Two electric motors are said to power the all-wheel-drive R67 Mustang, with one placed on each axle. The combined output of the battery-propelled units will give the EV more than a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in both the horsepower and torque departments, helping it to reach 62 miles per hour in an expected 2.2 seconds.

50 years on, we’re living the reality first shown at the “Mother of All Demos” | Ars Technica
Douglas Engelbart changed computer history forever on December 9, 1968.
From the vault: Watching (and re-watching) “The Mother of All Demos”
A half century ago, computer history took a giant leap when Douglas Engelbart—then a mid-career 43-year-old engineer at Stanford Research Institute in the heart of Silicon Valley—gave what has come to be known as the "mother of all demos."
On December 9, 1968 at a computer conference in San Francisco, Engelbart showed off the first inklings of numerous technologies that we all now take for granted: video conferencing, a modern desktop-style user interface, word processing, hypertext, the mouse, collaborative editing, among many others.
Even before his famous demonstration, Engelbart outlined his vision of the future more than a half-century ago in his historic 1962 paper, "Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework."

Three Week Hero is an album Recorded September 1968 at Olympic Studios, London, released by rock singer P. J. Proby on 8 April 1969, by Liberty Records. The album contains a mixture of dramatic pop, blues, rock, and country style songs, a departure from Proby's trademark pop sound of the 1960s. While it did not succeed commercially, it is best remembered today as the first time all four members of Led Zeppelin recorded together in the studio, which revived interest in the recording. Proby recollects: ‘Come the last day we found we had some studio time, so I just asked the band to play while I just came up with the words. ... They weren't Led Zeppelin at the time, they were the 'New Yardbirds' and they were going to be my band’.

Endeavour: saluting an engrossing, tender crime drama | Den of Geek
With a sixth series confirmed, Gem celebrates what makes Morse prequel Endeavour such a terrific crime drama...
Five series in, and Endeavour – the hugely popular prequel to the legendary Inspector Morse – has gained a passionate fanbase of its own, as the enthusiastic response to its recently confirmed sixth series has made evident. It’s an impressive feat for a show following in the footsteps of one of ITV’s most successful series.
Morse, as portrayed by the late, great John Thaw, remains high on the list of television’s iconic detectives eighteen years after the character’s on-screen death in the final episode of the original series, The Remorseful Day. Every detail of this unforgettable character, from his trademark Jaguar to the gruffly devoted friendship with his sergeant Robbie Lewis (Kevin Whately), has been etched firmly on the pop cultural landscape. Morse’s affable Geordie sidekick endeared himself to the audience sufficiently to merit his own show, Lewis, which ran for nine series and carved out its own niche while nodding affectionately on many occasions to its hero’s much-missed mentor. The idea of any other actor attempting to embody Morse himself, however, seemed unthinkable.

Endeavour TV Review: Shaun Evans is impressively understated as young Morse | The Independent
An underground stream, a protest at a beauty pageant, a suicidal con artist and some stolen medieval treasure. They're all connected, of course, but it took the mind of Morse to work out how, in this second-series opener of Endeavour (Sun ITV).
If you thought John Thaw's Morse was improbably clever, his younger self in this Sixties-set prequel really does test credulity – and not just the viewer's. "Tying in a suicide to a missing girl off the back of a single word? You've got to admit that's a stretch even by your standards," said Inspector Thursday after Morse presented his latest theory. All TV detectives are set apart from the run-of-the-mill plod, but this goes double for Morse's Endeavour incarnation (an impressively understated Shaun Evans). For viewers familiar with the middle-aged grump Morse will become, it's almost like watching a modern policeman on loan to a 1960s police force.

50 years ago, Star Trek’s history was sealed with the Uhura-Kirk kiss | Ars Technica
Nichelle Nichols recalled that "Plato's Stepchildren" drew more mail than any other ep.
50 years ago—November 22, 1968—NBC aired an otherwise-forgettable Star Trek episode with an unforgettable moment.
Captain James Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura, under mind-control by aliens in a totally ridiculous plot involving adherents to Plato, kiss for a few fleeting moments.
The smooching scene has been commonly referred to as television’s first interracial kiss—but there’s compelling evidence that it actually wasn’t.

The Allman Brothers Band's Ubiquitous 'Whipping Post': One Track Mind
From “Statesboro Blues” to “One Way Out” and “Trouble No More,” the Allman Brothers Band’s performance of blues classics epitomized the compliment, “they made it their own.”
Just as “Trouble No More” passed from the country blues of Sleepy John Estes to the Chicago blues sound of Muddy Waters’ version in 1955, it surfaced once again in 1969 – rocking with Duane Allman’s blistering slide guitar on the Allman Brothers Band’s eponymous first album. In the blues tradition, one does not do “covers” of others’ music. Rather, one reinterprets and pays homage to those who passed it forward, and the Allmans did so with uncanny virtuosity for 45 years.

A look at the Hot Wheels HWC Special Edition White Enamel Custom Camaro, which is surprisingly still available. – theLamleyGroup
If it is the year 2022, and you are visiting this post, by guess is the white Custom Camaro is no longer available. But have a look at it anyway. (And by the way, I have so many questions for you. This isn’t a political blog so I’ll refrain, but call me.)
It is today, the day I am posting this, get over to HotWheelsCollectors.com and grab the HWC Special Edition Custom Camaro if you haven’t. It’s worth it, and still available nearly a week after it went on sale.
If you need any more convincing, here is a video to watch...
I don’t have a great ’67 Camaro collection, considering I have only a sliver of what has been produced. But I do like what I have. I just updated it on the Lamley Extras Channel...

At Slide Records in Bedford last Friday, shop owner Warren Alsop showed me a copy they have to sell of the very rare Led Zeppelin I turquoise sleeve UK pressing. I was lucky enough to get one of these some years back. This copy is the Atlantic 588 171 matrix A1 B1 first pressing. It’s in near mint condition – the sleeve is all intact –this is certainly one of the best copies I’ve seen. Minimum bids on this would start at £500 and go upwards so it’s for serious collectors only – but it’s a great opportunity to invest in a rare Led Zep pressing in great condition

Instagram Post by oldroyalnavalcollege - Deskgram
1961- a group of WRNS Officer Cadets is shown around the Painted Hall in Greenwich at what is now the Old Royal Naval College.
This year is the centenary of the foundation of the Women's Royal Naval service or "Wrens". In 1918 the first pioneering group of women joined the Royal Naval College as cooks, motor drivers and telephonists, releasing men for sea service. Entering a predominantly male environment, they won the respect of their colleagues despite initial scepticism. As the roles open to women expanded over the years, many of the Wrens who trained at Greenwich went on to play a vital part in the Second World War and beyond.
WRNS Untold Stories: The Women's Royal Naval Service at Greenwich is our new exhibition, exploring the lives and experiences of the women who served and trained at Greenwich.

My WRNS story | An unknown journey
Major, life-changing decisions can be made following seemingly minor incidences in our lives, (click on any photo to enlarge it, back arrow to return to this page)
It started with another newspaper photo….
In February 1967 I was again off sick from my work as telephonist at a big hotel in Bristol, with tonsillitis. This time my GP told me to stay off work, resting my throat for two weeks. So a week later, feeling fine, not a bad day weather-wise, my friend Sue (Townsend?) asked if I would go into Bristol with her. Photo above. Sue has the checked collar.
She was back home, in her smart new Wrens uniform, on her first short leave from the HMS Dauntless, the Women’s Royal Naval Service’s training base. We went shopping in the city, but first Sue had some papers to drop off at the recruiting office in the centre of town. While we were there talking to the recruiting wren officer, a male commander came in, “Great shot, recruiting officer, new recruit in uniform and her friend asking about joining too!” he exclaimed.
I assured him I had no intention of joining anything requiring a uniform – thank-you very much!
But he came back with his camera and told me it would just be for a photo in the ‘Navy News’. So I agreed. He asked my name and we left for our shopping trip.
Imagine my horror to see the photo, and my caption, “Miss Cathy Higgins, interested in joining the wrens too”, on the front page of the Bristol Evening Post a couple of days later! Must have been a slow week.

Deep Inside the Beatles’ White Album, 50 Years Later - The New York Times
It took a remarkable effort to sound so casual. That’s one lesson of the hugely expanded 50th anniversary reissue of “The Beatles,” the double album that has been known as the White Album since its release in November 1968.
On the surface, the White Album marked a shift from the orchestral formality and sonic experimentation of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” Its core approach returned to the four Beatles strumming and picking guitar and bass, pounding a piano and socking the drums. There are giggles and hoots and wisecracks scattered through the album, as if making the music was a lark.

But as Beatlephiles have long known and the reissue documents, the White Album was by no means back to basics. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr worked painstakingly, using start-to-finish live-studio performances as a foundation but then building around them. In the studio, the Beatles ran through songs again and again, often in all-night sessions that ended up wearing down their producers and engineers. The new White Album package peers deeply into their labors; it includes, for instance, Take 102 of George Harrison’s “Not Guilty,” a song that never reached the finished album.

As well as being the usual head-scratching mystery for Shaun Evans’ troubled detective, the series five finale of Inspector Morse prequel Endeavour was also a massive gamechanger for the drama as a whole.
With the Cowley CID team facing a very uncertain future and key characters seeming to say goodbye to the series forever, you might have thought things couldn’t get any worse – but then, the unimaginable happened…

The HW Drag Strip Demons: Watch me open a set, and then go get a set. – theLamleyGroup
First off, you want them? Go grab a set at Wheel Collectors right now.
Alright, are you back? Or do you need a little more convincing? Or just want to see me open the latest Hot Wheels Car Culture set, Drag Strip Demons?
The set is a joy. Gassers are a thing in the Hot Wheels world right now, and as well they should be. They allow the Design Team to to jump headfirst into all kinds of fun designs, from tool to deco, and we collectors just eat them up.
That culminates with the Drag Strip Demons, a Japan Historics-esque signature mix in Car Culture that I hope we see again. Hot Wheels resurrected the name, added Julian Koiles’ brilliant art, and created a no-brainer set.
I got a set from Mattel to open up, and now you can get it at Wheel Collectors if you don’t want to fight the battle at retail. Either way, grab a set.

The 50 Best Vehicular Movie Chases of All Time | Consequence of Sound
As Bullitt turns 50, we dig through the racing and smashing of film's great pursuits
Vroom vroom, baby. It’s the 50th anniversary of Bullitt this month, and we can’t help but feel a little premium about the whole thing. What better way to celebrate decades of delicious vehicular madness than with a list of the 50 most moving, mashed-up car chases the movies have to offer?
We went up and down, left to right, and u-turn to axels with this. We have black-and-white chases, chase with multiple cars, motorcycle chases, even a car-versus-foot chase here and there. No horse cop chases, though…spacing, time, gas money, you know how it is.
Don’t like the list? Well then, hop in your car, hit the gas, and come complain about it. Yeah, that’s right, you got a problem, then ram your car into CoS’ offices at (at this point, the editor has decided to take to wheel and course correct straight to the list).

01. BULLITT (1968)
DOWN THE FRISCO HILLS
Make/Model: 1968 Ford Mustang GT
Blue Book: No judgment, but does anyone remember anything beyond Bullitt’s signature car chase de résistance? Exactly. Call it a revolution in camerawork, in kinetic storytelling, in unabashed whirlwind stunts and action filming. Bullitt’s gassed chase still gets mileage after 50 years on the screen. There’s a moment at the very beginning of Bullitt when Steve McQueen puts on a seat belt to signal that he ain’t horsing around. Neither are we, when we say Bullitt is the benchmark classic chase. Lalo Schifrin’s groovy bongo music, Peter Yates’ cleverly escalating camera placement and trickery, and McQueen’s epically cool confidence behind the wheel of a green Mustang, hunted and hunting a Dodge in the pursuit of justice (or whatever). Even the continuity errors (we see you, dizzying number of hub caps) almost make this more important. It’s like this bred and began an era of pulp cinema that gearheads have been racing to compare to since, and Bullitt still leaves the competition in the dust. A masterpiece, for movie nuts and motorheads alike. –Blake Goble

The interview, which was conducted by CBS News foreign correspondent Charlie D'Agata, was recorded on September 24 at the National Portrait Gallery in London, where LED ZEPPELIN held an event to promote the band's upcoming official photo book.
Asked whether there was a moment when the members of LED ZEPPELIN first got together that he thought, "Wow!", Jimmy responded: "The very first rehearsal that we did was here in London in a rehearsal room where we had maybe an hour or two hours. We counted 'one, two, three, four' and we were in and we were all playing, and we just kept extending the song and jamming on it, and by the end of it, I absolutely guarantee that it was a life-changing experience for everybody from that point — everyone knew that they'd never played with musical equals [before]."

Jimmy Page's website has shed new light on the early days of Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin News
Jimmy Page published a new “On This Day” entry on his official website on September 25 which mentioned the fiftieth anniversary of Led Zeppelin and showed some interesting information about the band’s first recordings.
Page’s website is updated every day with an entry that relates to that day in history, or a new announcement. The pages aren’t archived, and it’s rare for a new entry to be published.
Page’s new entry includes a worksheet from Rak Music Management in September 1968 which shows the dates and locations of Led Zeppelin’s early rehearsals and the first recording sessions for their debut album.
Here’s the text displayed on Page’s website:
“The inception of the epic Led Zeppelin I
So we’re in the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin, and on this day on 25th September 1968 heralds the inception of the epic Led Zeppelin I album: the moment whereby I would be able to manifest the sounds and layers I had heard in my head and also prove my status as a producer.
The group went to Studio No.1, Olympic Studios, 117 Church Road, Barnes, London, SW13, having extensively rehearsed the material for Led Zeppelin I at my house in Pangbourne and we had had the opportunity to perform a good percentage of that material during a few concerts in Scandinavia and the UK to experience our music in a live situation under the clandestine cloak of the Yardbirds. In those days, the studio time was scattered and limited over a few days in September and October, dictated by Olympic’s availability.
Thus, with the aid of my old friend Glyn John’s masterful engineering, at 11pm on Wednesday 25th September 1968, we began our recordings and embarked upon committing this eclectic powerhouse to tape.
Much has been speculated about the initial recordings, so I thought it would be useful to show the worksheet from RAK that gives the dates and times that we were scheduled initially to go in. It makes fascinating reading.”
And here are images of how the site appeared, and the worksheet...

How Jimmy Page Formed Led Zeppelin – Rolling Stone
Jimmy Page recruited “three new men” for his Yardbirds reboot, and in the process made rock history
On September 7th, 1968, Led Zeppelin played their first live show ever in, of all places, a converted gym in Gladsaxe, Denmark. They weren’t yet billed under their soon-to-be world-famous name but were instead performing under the guise of the New Yardbirds, a relaunch of the British Invasion blues rockers who’d imploded just months before. The only known quantity among this new lineup was guitarist Jimmy Page, who’d funded the tour through Scandinavia out of his own pocket, but that was enough draw a young crowd to the venue, known as Teen Club. “Their performance and their music were absolutely flawless,” local reviewer Bent Larsen wrote in the venue’s monthly newsletter, “and the music continued to ring nicely in the ears for some time after the curtains were drawn after their show.”
As far as gigs go, this show, which featured several songs that would ultimately appear on the band’s first album, like “Communication Breakdown,” “Dazed And Confused” and “You Shook Me,” paled in comparison to the marathon runs they would undertake at the Forum in Los Angeles or Earls Court outside of London in the years to come, but the momentousness of the occasion can’t be overstated. It was Zeppelin’s first step in their ascent to the top of rock’s Olympus, and Jimmy Page deserves much of the credit for making it happen.
In the spring of 1968, Page was at a crossroads. The highly touted session guitar ace was once again a man without a band. He’d spent the prior two years or so playing in the Yardbirds, first as a dual-lead foil to his childhood friend Jeff Beck and then as the group’s focal point when Beck decided to split in the middle of an American tour. After another quick run through the States, the band suddenly and unceremoniously called it a day when the different members of the group decided they wanted to pursue other artistic avenues.
Page was understandably disappointed, but he had an idea of how he wanted to proceed. Though the guitarist’s move from complete anonymity in London’s many recording studios working with some of the biggest pop and rock stars of the early Sixties to playing sweaty gigs at universities and clubs across the pond in the U.S. was thrilling, but Page also felt stifled by the creative impulses of the Yardbirds’ manager and producer Mickie Most.

Lefsetz Letter » Blog Archive » Marty Balin
I had a taste of the real world (just a drop of it)
When I went down on you girl
That’s what passed for salaciousness back in ’75, when the Jefferson Airplane, reconstituted as Jefferson Starship, sans Jorma and Jack, came out of nowhere to dominate the charts once again.
Actually, there was a prelude, back in ’74, on the previous album by this incarnation, when Marty Balin guest-starred on “Caroline,” the best track on “Dragon Fly.”
But Grace Slick gets all the credit. Not that she does not deserve a lot of it, she was one of a kind, Courtney Love with better music and a better temperament, even though Grace did go off the rails at the end of her fame with her drinking.
But Jefferson Airplane has been forgotten completely. Whittled down to two tracks, “Somebody To Love” and “White Rabbit.” An oldies act for oldies radio. Nothing meaningful, whereas that was anything but the case.

Jefferson Airplane Singer Marty Balin Dead at 76 | Consequence of Sound
Balin also sang in offshoot Jefferson Starship
Marty Balin, founding member and singer of Jefferson Airplane, has died.
According to Rolling Stone, Balin passed away Thursday at the age of 76. A cause of death was not immediately known.
Alongside Paul Kantner, Balin formed Jefferson Airplane in 1965. Rumor has it that the band’s name was inspired by a slang term for a marijuana roach clip. Their pro-drug stance and psych-folk-rock sound quickly made them a fixture in San Francisco’s fledgling counterculture scene, where they performed alongside acts like Jerry Garcia, David Crosby, and Janis Joplin. They were taken under the wings of concert promoter Bill Graham, who promptly booked them to play San Francisco’s Fillmore. A record contract with RCA Victor soon followed.
