THE ENDEAVOUR INTERVIEWS 2018: Dakota Blue Richards | Damian Michael Barcroft
The Home Office was appalled and said that women were not proper persons in the eyes of the law when Edith Smith became the first female police officer with official powers of arrest in 1915. However, by 1920, and after The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act of 1919, the Baird Committee stated that women could indeed be appointed as police officers although this came with the caveat that their duties be confined to dealing with women and children only.
The conditions in which female officers work, and the respect and recognition afforded to them, have obviously changed for the better over the years but progress has been frustratingly slow and much still needs to be done to increase awareness and understanding of the issues affecting women within the police force today.

ENDEAVOUR: Series 5, Episode 1, MUSE. Scenes Missing From USA Version. – Morse, Lewis and Endeavour
Hello my fellow Morsonians, Endeavourists and Lewisians and welcome to a new post. This post is about all the missing scenes and edited scenes in the USA version. There are 12 scenes that were shown in the original British version but were either excised or edited when shown in the USA.
I understand why the American company does this so the episode fits into the confines of their time-slot and of course one must get plenty of advertisements in there as well. But it is unfair to the American viewers as they miss scenes which can help understand the motives and the characters in the episode that much better.
I have created a video of all twelve scenes. If the scene was missing from the US version I have set it between the before after scenes to give the missing scene context. Extended scenes are shown in their entirety.

Label: Various | Genre: Blues Rock, Classic Rock
In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. His frequent hurricane blasts of noise and dazzling showmanship — he could and would play behind his back and with his teeth and set his guitar on fire — has sometimes obscured his considerable gifts as a songwriter, singer, and master of a gamut of blues, R&B, and rock styles.
When Hendrix became an international superstar in 1967, it seemed as if he’d dropped out of a Martian spaceship, but in fact he’d served his apprenticeship the long, mundane way in numerous R&B acts on the chitlin circuit. During the early and mid-’60s, he worked with such R&B/soul greats as Little Richard, the Isley Brothers, and King Curtis as a backup guitarist. Occasionally he recorded as a session man (the Isley Brothers’ 1964 single “Testify” is the only one of these early tracks that offers even a glimpse of his future genius). But the stars didn’t appreciate his show-stealing showmanship, and Hendrix was straitjacketed by sideman roles that didn’t allow him to develop as a soloist. The logical step was for Hendrix to go out on his own, which he did in New York in the mid-’60s, playing with various musicians in local clubs, and joining white blues-rock singer John Hammond, Jr.’s band for a while. ― Allmusic

Oozing Restraint: Irma Thomas, “Ruler Of My Heart” (1963) |
There was once a quaint notion that women could be volcanoes of sexual interest in a completely enclosed way.  An indirect glance here, a strategic non-reply there, and you would feel the hottest heat there is.  But you wouldn’t call that woman “hot” or “sexy” any more than you would dream of turning her body inside out: that would ruin everything.
Irma Thomas, the New Orleans Queen of Soul, is no demure damsel of yore, but she hooks us with a version of that restraint—an amazingly intense restraint—in “Ruler Of My Heart.”
Listen, in the first verse she can’t even decide whether she’s going to allow herself to sing; her notes are dropping almost out of musical pitches and into plain talk. At the peak of the song’s argument, she hums. Hear how she sings “Where can you be? I wait patiently” with the opposite of bombast at 0:31-0:36, and “Heed my cry, ease my pain” at 1:01-1:07. Hear how she diminishes volume at the end of the bridge:  “Come back, come back, come back—I’ve had enough” at 0:45-0:52.  Hear how many times she chooses a naturally minimized ending of a word (“the going gets rough”).  And yet by the end there are enough little flare-ups of belting that no one can doubt her power.

How the Music of 1968 Mirrored the Year’s Revolutionary Spirit | Consequence of Sound
1968 marked a drastic change in the sound and philosophy of popular music
Some five decades later, it’s still hard to aptly sum up the influence the 1960s had on our country, both historically and culturally. A decade born out of buttoned-up conservatism quickly morphed into a counterculture age where everything was subject to questioning. That skepticism translated into the music of the times. Out in San Francisco, bands like the Grateful Dead were trying to change the world through positivity. The Hippie Revolution sought to turn people on to a new way of living, one based in community, togetherness, peace, and sexual freedom. And for a while they succeeded. But in an example of just how quickly the world was moving, it took only a year for the Summer of Love to devolve into feelings of anger and cynicism.
Music often holds a mirror up to the world it’s created in, and in 1968, the picture was anything but pretty. The deaths of progressive leaders such as Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as growing anti-war sentiment, sowed seeds of societal angst that pushed the counterculture, as well as segments of the mainstream, in a darker, more aggressive direction. A lot of rock music, in particular, got louder and more abrasive, channeling the energy of a nervous world seemingly overwhelmed with the change before it. If rock and roll was born out of rebellion, a need to shake up and upset the status quo, then 1968, in retrospect, gave scores of up-and-coming bands some very real, tangible things to push back against. Many answered the call. Some explicitly rebelled against cultural chaos while others channeled their subversion through their music. But all told, 1968 marked a seminal year for the development of underground and independent music, both in sound and philosophy.

Endeavour finale - has Trewlove left the series? Is Thursday leaving? ITV - Radio Times
Exclusive: Executive producer Damien Timmer gives us the inside scoop on the latest series of the Inspector Morse prequel – as well as a few hints at what we can expect in the future. Contains spoilers
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…
On a similar topic, is this the last we’ll see of WPC Trewlove, as played by Dakota Blue Richards? She heads off to join Scotland Yard in the finale
This is the end of Trewlove for now – Dakota told us she wanted to leave at the beginning of last year, so we planned series five to give her the arc with Fancy and build to his demise and her leaving. But the door is always open for return appearances!

45 Years Ago: The Rolling Stones Court Controversy Over 'Beggars Banquet' Cover
The Rolling Stones and controversy go together like fish and chips. In 1968, one of their best-known controversies kept their classic album 'Beggars Banquet' album off shelves for nearly six months in a protracted dispute over the legendary "toilet cover."
As conceived by designer Michael Vosse, the original cover for 'Beggars Banquet' depicted graffiti on the wall of a bathroom that could charitably be described as dilapidated. Located at a Los Angeles-area Porsche dealership, the bathroom walls were defaced by actual Stones: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards scrawled the album credits and one-liners like "Wot no paper!" The photograph featured not just the walls but the top of an old, beaten-up toilet.

This Is the Vintage Alfa Romeo That Inspired the New 8C
Alfa's upcoming mid-engine sports car might share its name with a race car from the 1930s, but it'll look a lot like something from 1967.
Alfa Romeo announced a new mid-engine sports car today, the 8C, named after the 8C Competizione of 2007 and many of its amazing eight-cylinder road and race cars of the 1920s and 1930s. But based on a sketch released by Alfa, it looks like the new 8C draws inspiration from a different model from the company—the 1967 Tipo 33 Stradale.
Viewed in profile the similarities are quite apparent. Just look at the swept up window line and muscular rear fender on the 8C sketch. It's clear the designers at Alfa Romeo have been hanging out in the company's museum where the Tipo 33 Stradale prototype lives.
The Tipo 33 was originally designed as a tube-framed prototype for the 1967 World Sportscar Championship, but Alfa Romeo decided its chassis would lend itself well to a road car. So, Franco Scaglione—who designed the original Giulietta Sprint while at Bertone—was tapped by Alfa to provide bodywork for the 33. The results were astonishing.

The Beatles, "Helter Skelter" from 'The White Album' (1968): Deep Beatles
Is “Helter Skelter” the dirtiest, most raucous song the Beatles ever recorded? While that question is still debated, one fact is certain: the White Album headbanger would influence generations of hard rock and punk bands to create similar rockers with uncompromising rawness.
Paul McCartney originally composed “Helter Skelter” in 1968 as a response to the Who. Pete Townshend had granted a Melody Maker interview claiming that his band had just recorded the loudest, rowdiest track to date (the song was later revealed to be “I Can See for Miles”). While in Scotland, Paul McCartney read the article and decided to try his hand at such a composition. What resulted was not only one of the hardest tracks off the White Album, but also one of the most aggressive tracks the Beatles ever recorded.
After reading the Townshend interview, McCartney immediately began composing “Helter Skelter.” “I wrote ‘Helter Skelter’ to be the most raucous vocal, the loudest drums,” he told Barry Miles for the biography Many Years from Now. He borrowed the title from a popular ride found on British fairgrounds, but extended the metaphor to describe “a ride from the top to the bottom — the rise and fall of the Roman Empire — and this was the fall, the demise, the going down.”

Filming begins on series six of Endeavour; plotlines and images revealed – The Killing Times
Filming has begun on the sixth series of one of our favourite British crime dramas, Endeavour, with lead actor Shaun Evans confirmed to not only return as Morse but also direct one of the new films. The star will also be sporting a new-look as DS Endeavour Morse in the upcoming series, as seen in a first-look image released by ITV.
While reprising his titular role as Endeavour Morse,  Evans will also be putting his directorial mark on the show, heading behind the camera for the second feature-length film in the series. The move follows his success directing two episodes of continuing drama Casualty earlier this year.

David Bowie’s First-Ever Demo Discovered in Bread Box | Music News | Consequence of Sound
David Jones, then 16 years old, sang lead for his band The Konrads
The first-ever recording of David Bowie on lead vocals has been discovered — in a bread box. Long thought lost to history, a copy of The Konrads’ 1963 demo “I Never Dreamed” was discovered by the band’s drummer, David Hadfield, while moving in the 1990s. He kept the find a secret until announcing today that it will be up for auction in September.
At the time intent on becoming a world-class saxophonist, a then 16-year-old Bowie still going by David Jones co-wrote “I Never Dreamed” with Konrads lead guitarist Neville Wills (older stories about the song credit it to guitarist Alan Dodds). The band’s agent, Rolling Stones manager Eric Easton, planned to use the recording to gain the attention of Decca Records. Though the tape was rejected, the band did score an audition with the label some months later, where vocalist Roger Ferris took over lead and Jones/Bowie stepped into the background.

“The scaffold is high and eternity near.”
Those words, perhaps the most chilling from “Long Black Veil,” one of the most haunting murder ballads you’ll ever hear, have been sung by a whole lot of folks over the years, including iconic voices like Burl Ives, Jerry Garcia, Rick Danko and Levon Helm of The Band, Joan Baez, Mick Jagger, and Dave Matthews on record, not to mention the umpteen others who have taken a crack at it onstage.

Watch Pearl Jam & MC50 Perform “Kick Out the Jams” | Music News | Consequence of Sound
Also, Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil of Soundgarden reunite for first time since Chris Cornell's passing
Pearl Jam headlined Belgium’s Rock Werchter over the weekend, delivering a powerful 24-song performance. The setlist included a dedication to fellow headliner Jack White (“Spin the Black Circle”), a guest appearance from Jack Johnson for John Lennon’s “Imagine”, and a number of jabs at President Donald Trump. One of the biggest surprises came early in the set, however, when PJ welcomed out Wayne Kramer and his MC50 band to play MC5’s classic “Kick Out the James”.
The stage was packed during the performance, as MC50’s Kramer, Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), Brendan Canty (Fugazi), Dug Pinnick (King’s X), Marcus Durant (Zen Guerrilla) joined the entirety of Pearl Jam. Eddie Vedder and Kramer traded verses and split the final refrain as the onslaught of guitars shredded out over the crowd. Take a look a crowd-shot footage of the collaboration below.

Making Time- Jeff Beck - Truth
In the Yardbirds Jeff Beck had played some of the greatest and most innovative lead guitar lines of the 1960s. He left the band after recording just three tracks as part of a dual-lead guitar attack with Jimmy Page. While Page formed the New Yardbirds that was later Led Zeppelin, Beck put together the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart on vocals, Ronnie Wood, ex-Birds and Creation, on bass and Aynsley Dunbar on drums. Also on the album are Led Zeppelin's John-Paul Jones, piano session man Nicky Hopkins while the timpani is played by "you know who," a reference to Keith Moon.
The opening track is a reworking of the Yardbirds' classic Shapes of Things and it sounds nothing like the original. Much slower and "heavier," Shapes of Things is well-suited to Rod Stewart's voice. One of the features of the album is the lack of original tracks. Apart from the opener there are numerous cover versions including Tim Rose's Morning Dew, Greensleeves (written by Henry VIII?), Ol' Man River and Jeff's Beck's version of Bolero that had been the b-side of the debut single. There is no doubt that the Jeff Beck Group tackled a wide repertoire!

Overlooked Albums #38: Jeff Beck - Truth - Music Feature - No Ripcord
Restlessness is good. It has made a voyager out of Jeff Beck, who continues a musical quest that began in his teenage years. His pal Jimmy Page, who traded licks with him in The Yardbirds, has lived content within the heavy-rock niche he’s built for himself, but that kind of commitment wasn’t made for Beck. His musical journey, which runs the gamut from rockabilly to jazz fusion, is closer in spirit to that of Jimi Hendrix, who was too adventurous to shrink from anything. Beck is a wanderer, his attention always fixed on what waits up ahead behind the bend.
Beck was booted from The Yardbirds in late 1966. It was the opportunity to blaze his own trail, and he didn’t waste time. His first single, Hi Ho Silver Lining, was a shrewd commercial move that had him singing with a string section. By the time he released Love Is Blue, critics were wondering whether Beck had been replaced by a body-snatching pod. They needn’t have worried because he was handpicking a stellar lineup for his next move: drummer Mick Waller, fresh from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, ex-Birds Ron Wood on bass, and singer Rod Stewart, who had been struggling to get something going after the dissolution of Shotgun Express.

Truth – Rolling Stone
The album that catapulted John Mayall & Eric Clapton to fame, The Bluebreakers with Eric Clapton, was a special one. It hipped the U.S. to two good blues interpreters, held a fresh approach to the blues, and was performed by good musicians all around. Two months ago everyone was saying “Jeff Beck’s in town and you must see his group . . . blah, blah, blah.”
It was an unnerving experience to hear the Beck group. I had to leave after three numbers. The band was blowing changes, the bass player was losing time, Beck was uncomfortably and bitingly over-volumed, the singer was doing deep knee-bends holding the mike stand like a dumbbell (original, but so what.) It didn’t make a hell of a lot of sense to me.

45 Years Ago: The Jeff Beck Group's 'Truth' Album Released
It's been 45 years since the Jeff Beck Group helped set the course for hard rock's future with the release of their seminal debut album.
From its inception, 'Truth' depended on the considerable star power earned by leader Jeff Beck during his brief but historic 18-month tenure with the Yardbirds, in which he replaced guitar god Eric Clapton with a style all his own, before sharing six-string duties with friend Jimmy Page.

The Jeff Beck Group: The Story Of Truth | Louder
In the late 60s, Yardbirds alumnus Jeff Beck formed The Jeff Beck Group. Here's the remarkable story of the making Of Truth, their debut album
On July 29, 1968, Jeff Beck, along with a kick-around vocalist, a future Rolling Stone, and a drummer with a lot of bash released Truth. The album was a miracle of fury and berserk beauty, a testament to the jaw-dropping chops of a 24- year old guitarist who, over the course of 10 tracks and around 40 minutes, ran the gamut from electric blues and modified R&B to psychedelically influenced rock, classical, and even a little heavy-metal instrumentalism. With Truth, released just months before Led Zeppelin’s debut – and with songs and personnel in common – Jeff Beck, singer Rod Stewart, bassist Ronnie Wood, and drummer Mickey Waller (the core band) made an album that would become every guitar player’s bible and every hard rock band’s Holy Grail.

Kirkville - The Record Industry and Nostalgia
As we reach the end of the teens – the decade beginning in 2010 – we are also reaching the end of the 50th anniversary of the sixties. Much has been written about the influence of this seminal decade (though to be fair, the sixties didn’t start until the middle of the decade, and didn’t end until the middle of the seventies), and the use of “50th anniversary” on books has made it look like a distant past.
The same is true with music. Just today, browsing Amazon, I came across Music From Big Pink – 50th Anniversary Edition (Super Deluxe). (Amazon.com, Amazon UK) This record was The Band’s debut album, after having been Bob Dylan’s backing band, and was very popular. It contained a wide range of musical styles, and was typical of sixties rock.

The Electras have got to find themselves some action, a little satisfaction – anyone know a woman who might lend a hand?
In his magnificent autobiography, Head-On, Julian Cope recounts one of the arguments that would rend asunder Liverpool's music heads in the 70s: whose version of the 1967 garage-rock staple Action Woman was better? Was it the one by the Litter, better known by far, after featuring on the first volume of the Pebbles series of albums? Or was it the one by their Minneapolitan confreres, the Electras?
Action Woman was written by a man called Warren Kendrick, who was the manager of the Electras. He was also the manager of the Litter. So the ownership of the song – usually ceded to the Litter, though no one seems sure whose version came first – is open to debate.

The Beatles, "Mother Nature's Son" (1968): Deep Beatles
One of the most heartfelt and intimate tracks on the Beatles’ White Album, “Mother Nature’s Son” draws its inspiration from three primary sources: Paul McCartney’s childhood, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s teachings, and the standard “Nature Boy.” McCartney thoroughly discussed these origins in Barry Miles’ biography Many Years from Now. Childhood days spent in the countryside partially inspired the song, what he called his “child of nature-leanings.” Years later, McCartney’s time studying with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi further encouraged him to explore the wonders of nature. Incidentally, John Lennon would write a song called “Child of Nature” also inspired by the retreat, but later transformed it into “Jealous Guy.”

The Top 100 Festival Lineups of All Time | Consequence of Sound
Date: June 16-18
Location: Monterey, California
Headliners: The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Ravi Shankar, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, and Simon & Garfunkel
Woodstock will always occupy a uniquely mythological place in the pantheon of American musical festivals, but the 1967 Monterey International Pop Music Festival remains a luminous snapshot of a countercultural epoch beyond compare. Though big-hitters including Dylan and The Beatles were noticeably absent, the three-day festival excelled in its aim of elevating rock to the same prestige as jazz and folk, all while introducing American audiences to future luminaries like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar, Otis Redding, and The Who. Consider it the coming-out party not only for these storied legends but also for the rock and roll festival as we know it. –Brian Coney

Classic Singles #79: The Misunderstood – I Can Take You to the Sun / Who Do You Love (1966) | Cosmic Mind at Play
The Misunderstood were an American band – from Riverside, California – but invariably appear on compilations of UK psychedelia, thanks to the fact that they were encouraged to head over the pond to find fame and fortune by DJ John Peel (then still known as John Ravenscroft). Peel had seen them perform at the opening of a shopping centre while he was working at Radio KMEN in San Bernardino and had become the band’s mentor, helping them to find bookings and record demos.
After forming as surf band The Blue Notes in late 1963, they changed name in 1965 and evolved into a fine garage / rhythm and blues outfit, releasing a single in April 1966 on the Blues Sound Co. label, ‘You Don’t Have To Go / Who’s Been Talking’. The blues covers on this 45 are pretty standard fare but the group quickly developed their sound to include feedback and raga-like guitar, as can be heard on their acetate version of The Yardbirds’ ‘I’m Not Talking’ from August 1966 (included on the essential Cherry Red retrospective Before The Dream Faded). They also experimented live with lights plugged directly into their amplifiers that would ebb and flow in intensity with the volume and frequencies of the notes being played.

Donovan - 'Sunshine Superman' (1966): On Second Thought
Armed with a guitar and a harmonica, Donovan entered the public eye amid the folk rock boom of 1965. The Scottish-born troubadour achieved quite an impressive feat that year, garnering attention with a trio of back-to-back solid brass singles. “Catch The Wind” and “Colours” were original compositions, while “The Universal Soldier” was a treatment of Buffy St. Marie’s anti-war anthem.
When folk rock gave way to freak rock in 1966, Donovan was properly prepared for the occasion. Although the singer-songwriter initially made his mark as a folkie, he was actually incredibly diversified, having dined on a diet of multiple musical cuisines, ranging from jazz to blues to pop to traditional rock and roll. Not only did Donovan embrace the incoming tide of psychedelia with ease, but he chipped in his own individual ideas – leading to a host of highly groundbreaking sounds.

The Beatles, "Don't Pass Me By" from 'The White Album' (1968): Deep Beatles
Since his Liverpool days, Ringo Starr has professed a great love of country music. In 1959 he joined a group called the Raving Texans. According to Andrew Grant Jackson’s Still the Greatest, Starr adopted the stage name Ringo not only in reference to his many rings, but also to pay tribute to real-life cowboy Johnny Ringo. He recorded two previous country-inflected tracks with the Beatles, but his composition debut fully indulged in his passion for the genre. The White Album’s “Don’t Pass Me By” retains its notability not only because it represents Starr’s first solo composition; it further emphasizes the variety of influences that impacted the Beatles’ music.
Starr’s first official brushes with country include the Buck Owens cover “Act Naturally” and the Rubber Soul track “What Goes On.” The former evolved into Starr’s unofficial theme song, while Starr co-wrote the latter. Some reports claim Starr wrote the track during the Beatles’ 1968 India retreat, but the Beatle stated in Anthology that he actually composed the song at home.

If you told me the ’65 Ford Galaxie was Jun Imai’s best Hot Wheels casting, I don’t think I could argue with you. – the Lamley Group
When Jun Imai announced last month that he was leaving Mattel, this is what we all thought and talked about...
And for good reason. Jun’s legacy at Hot Wheels will be JDM, and the era he ushered in with his many Japanese designs. What started with “Why is Hot Wheels doing a Corolla and Datsun!?!?” ended with “Awesome, they finally made a Laurel!!”. That’s quite a journey in just a few years.
But Jun was always quick to let you know he was not all JDM, and that is most certainly true. In fact, Jun took the same approach to all of car culture that he took to JDM. Start with the top layer, and then start digging. If the Hakosuka is the JDM equivalent to the ’69 Camaro, the Hako Wagon is the Greenwood Corvette. You know it, but maybe not quite like that.
So digging into Jun’s non-JDM designs is definitely a task worth taking on. It means I need to make another video to accompany the one above, but there are few worth showcasing on their own. The ’65 Ford Galaxie is one.

Reliquary: Led Zeppelin - Coda Advanced Tapes (2010 Boogie Mama) [SBD]
Led Zeppelin
'Coda Advanced Tapes'
(Inc. Bonham's isolated Drum Tracks)
(2010 Boogie Mama)
Outtakes 1969 - 1982
Studio Soundboard Recordings
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3
Coda Advanced Tapes (Boogie Mama)
Sugar Mama, Poor Tom, Walter’s Walk (instrumental), Ozone Baby, Walter’s Walk, Ozone Baby, Night Flight, Darlene, Bonzo’s Montreux, Wearing And Tearing. John Bonham isolated drum tracks: unreleased, Carouselambra, Ozone Baby (2x), All My Love, Wearing And Tearing, drum segments, Fool In The Rain
Coda Advanced Tapes is the new release on Boogie Mama featuring outtakes associated with the final Led Zeppelin album Coda, released in 1982. Released as a contractual obligation after John Bonham’s death, the songs ranged over their entire eleven year history together.
Boogie Mama essentially combine halfs of two old Empress Valley releases. The first half of the disc has “tape 1” from The Lost Sessions Vol. 8 (EVSD 362) from “Sugar Mama” up to “Wearing And Tearing.” The second half of the disc has the John Bonham isolated drum tracks which surfaced in 2004 and were released on disc one of The Lost Sessions Vol. 4 (EVSD 308-309).
The first track is an outtake considered for inclusion in the collection, but was ultimately rejected. “Sugar Mama” dates from the busy summer of 1969 and exists in very good sound quality. It is an embarrassing slice of late sixties pop music. It’s perfectly understandable why the band refused to include it on the album, even though it would have made more sense to include it instead of “I Can’t Quit You,” which was already previously release. “Sugar Mama” is an interesting curiosity and nothing more than that.
“Poor Tom” comes from the 1970 sessions for Led Zeppelin III and is one of the strongest tracks on the record. This take is purely instrumental and has a very long drum introduction, stretching several measures longer than the final edited version.
The two versions of “Walter’s Walk” are really the same one but with different edits. It was recorded in the spring of 1972 during the Houses Of The Holy sessions and it’s doubtful it ever was meant for release. The first take is the raw recording featuring Page, Jones and Bonham bashing out the rhythm and faint hints of melody, exactly how it was employed that summer on the US tour when it was included in the long “Dazed And Confused” improvisations.
The second “Walter’s Walk” contains the 1982 Robert Plant vocals and Page guitar overdubs. It sounds almost identical to the Coda version.
“Night Flight” was recorded in 1971 during the sessions for the fourth album and was released several years afterwards on Physical Graffiti. This track is identical to the final version except it has faint backing vocals.
“Bonzo’s Montreux,” recorded in September 1976 sounds very much the same as does “Darlene,” recorded in Stockholm in 1978. The final track is “Wearing And Tearing,” another Coda song from the In Through The Outdoor sessions. It is the same as used on the LP except it has a John Bonham count-in.
The rest of the disc contains Bonahm drumming along to the tunes from In Through The Outdoor and Coda. There was some comment at the time about the tape’s veracity, but that’s largely irrelevant. The drummer both drums and sounds like John Bonham (he’s audible at some points, grunting and shouts “fookin’ ‘ell” before “Fool In The Rain”). If it where a forgery, it’s a damn fine one!
It’s a brilliant insight into a brilliant drummer and makes me wish they had released the official album with this good quality. The songs sound fresh and exciting.
Coda Advanced Tapes is an excellent release on Boogie Mama. The label utilize a cardboard digipack with a photo of Bonham on the front cover playing the drums with a joyful look on his face. These tapes are essential for the collection, and this is an affordable way to pick these up. -collectorsmusicreviews.com

Reliquary: Led Zeppelin - Studio Sessions Ultimate (Scorpio) [12 CDs]
Led Zeppelin
Studio Sessions Ultimate (1968 to 1980) [12 Discs]
(2007 Scorpio : Scorpio LZ-07001)
This box was released in May 2007. It contains everything on Antrabata's "Sessions", Midas Touch's "Brutal Artistry" and "Brutal Artistry II", and Empress Valley's "The Lost Mixes EP Volume 1". Antrabata and the Midas Touch both titles were all three released in 1997, and Empress Valley in 2001. Scorpio doesn't include any of the new material released during the six years prior to it's release. Going back even further, they also excluded the extra 36 minutes of Battle of Evermore outtakes that's only found on TDOLZ's "Sessions" title from 1997. There is some minor material making it's debut. The first disc's track 13 has an extra half minute in the end over prior releases. Disc ten's tracks 7-14 provide an extra 17 minutes of studio room floor edit pieces for Ten Years Gone and Boogie With Stu. Scorpio's material was closely sequenced chronologically. They were careful to not miss the few bits of tape before/after tracks that have commonly been missed by others. The tapes are excellent quality, with the only exception being some static halfway through Stairway To Heaven on the final disc. -Original

Reliquary: P.J. Proby - Three Week Hero [SBD]
Repost. Why? I'll tell ya; This is something all Led Zeppelin fans eventually realize is a real thing. Not a myth, not a dream, not an old made-up story that has been passed down threw the generations. It actually exists!! ...just sayin'
P.J. Proby
'Three Week Hero'
(1969 Liberty LBS 83219 U.K.) 
Soundboard Recordings
Encoded: 192 Kbps MP3
P.J. Proby (vocals)
*Jimmy Page (misspelled “Paige”) (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel guitar)
*John Bonham (drums, percussion, congas)
*Robert Plant (harmonica, tambourine, vocals)
*John Paul Jones (bass, keyboards, arrangements)
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’.
Jimmy Page had previously sessioned on 1964-05-15 with session guitarist Big Jim Sullivan for Proby on his biggest success 'Hold Me', which reached number 3 in the UK charts. Other sessions soon followed for 'Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart', 'Stagger Lee', 'Linda Lu', 'Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu', and 'Hanging from Your Love Tree'. Due to poor managerial and investment advice, Texan-born Proby was declared a bankrupt in the United States in 1967, and decided to try his luck in the United Kingdom by relocating there in 1968. Members of Led Zeppelin were invited to participate after John Paul Jones had already pre-booked the session as a commitment prior to August 1968. The medley 'Jim's Blues'/'George Wallace Is Rollin' In This Mornin'', features all four members with Robert Plant playing harmonica and tambourine. 'Today I Killed a Man' reached number 13 on the Dutch singles chart, an American Civil War song ostensibly redirected towards the Vietnam War. Many of the ideas behind these songs would be revisited on the Family Dogg's 1969 album A Way of Life, whose members appeared as backing singers, and this release was also produced by Steve Rowland.
The song 'Sugar Mama' recorded by Led Zeppelin at Morgan Studios in 1969, is not the same 'Sugar Mama' recorded on this album.

Track of the Day: 'Eli's Comin'' by Laura Nyro - The Atlantic
From a reader who’s submitted multiple cover songs to our series:
I’m going to be contrary with this pick. Laura Nyro was a brilliant songwriter, as evidenced by the many, many people who had huge chart successes with her songs. Sadly, the one person who didn’t have that success was Laura herself. That is one of the music industry's great mysteries.
“Eli’s Comin’” was a top ten hit for Three Dog Night, but it can’t hold a candle to the original. In addition to lead vocals, Laura plays all the keyboards and does all the backing vocals—an early example of overdubbing. The note she hits at 2:15 never fails to give me chills.

Netflix film examines why NASA shunned women astronauts in early days | Ars Technica
Since then, NASA has begun to redeem itself by taking steps toward gender parity.
This June, the world will mark the 55th anniversary of the first woman flying into space. Valentina Tereshkova, an amateur Russian skydiver, spent nearly three days in orbit inside a spherical Vostok 6 capsule. The first American woman, physicist Sally Ride, would not follow Tereshkova into space for another two decades.
A new documentary on Netflix, Mercury 13, examines the question of why NASA did not fly women in space early on and, in particular, focuses on 13 women who underwent preliminary screening processes in 1960 and 1961 to determine their suitability as astronauts. The film offers a clear verdict for why women were excluded from NASA in the space agency's early days—"good old-fashioned prejudice," as one of the participants said. Mercury 13 will be released Friday.
The film admirably brings some of these women to life, all of whom were accomplished pilots. There is Jerrie Cobb, who scored very highly in the preliminary tests and gave compelling testimony before Congress in an attempt to open NASA's early spaceflight programs to women. Another key figure is pilot Jane B. Hart, married to a US Senator from Michigan, whose experience in the project compelled her to become one of the founders of the National Organization for Women.

The Beatles, "Your Mother Should Know" (1967): Deep Beatles
One of Magical Mystery Tour’s most memorable sequences remains the ending, when the Beatles jog down a staircase in all white tuxedos, surrounded by an assortment of women in ballgowns, others in military garb, and more. Paul McCartney’s grin and exaggerated dance moves illustrate how much he enjoyed filming the scene, perhaps because the four were dancing to one of his own compositions: “Your Mother Should Know,” a track written specifically for a big production number.
In addition, the song pays tribute to his father’s music hall background as well as his family’s deep love for the genre. As McCartney told biographer Barry Miles in Many Years from Now, he envisioned a Busby Berkeley-style number while writing the song. He wrote it at his Cavendish Avenue home on a harmonium.
During this time, relatives including Aunty Jin (who was later name-checked in the Wings hit “Let ‘Em In”) were also staying with him. Their conversations inspired McCartney to compose the track; perhaps their presence also reminded him of music hall, a beloved tradition that McCartney had revisited previously in songs such as Sgt. Pepper’s “When I’m Sixty-Four,” and Yellow Submarine’s “All Together Now.”

The Yardbirds are England version of the US’s Buffalo Springfield (or vice versa) – possibly more famous for who was in the band and what future musical acts they spawned than for the music they made! Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page all played guitar for the Yardbirds at some point between 1963 + 1968. That trio all ranked in the top 5 on Rolling Stones' list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time with Clapton as #2, Page as #3, and Beck at #5. The Yardbirds begat such bands as Cream, The Jeff Beck Group, and of course, the mighty Led Zeppelin! This soundboard recording captures the band with Jimmy Page at the helm, in Stockholm on Tuesday April 4th, 1967. -ORIGINAL

The Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Redline Replicas are making their way to market. They hit France first. – the Lamley Group
It is always cool to see a market that doesn’t get a ton of attention in the diecast world all of a sudden get that attention.
That has happened with France. There are a quite a few collectors in France, and I always enjoy hearing from them. They collect a lot of brands, and they know their stuff. For some reason they have been shut out of Matchbox for years, but they do get Hot Wheels.
So it was cool to see the new Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Redline line show up at Carrefour, a French supermarket. Lamley Reader Arthur Douissard found four of the five models released (someone beat him to the Beetle) and was kind enough to share some pics...

Reliquary: Neil Young - Meets Buffalo Springfield & The Squires [SBD]
Neil Young
'Meets Buffalo Springfield and The Squires'
Unreleased Demos 1963-1968
(1989 Moby Dick Records : MDCD 001)
Soundboard Recordings
Sound Quality Varies
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3
(*) Elektra Studios 1965
(+) 1963 recording with The Squires
Back in 1989 when it came out this was a treasure trove of rare material.
Tracks 1-7 are Neil Young's 1965 Elektra Audition, Tracks 8-11 are needle drops of Buffalo Springfield rare acetates and tracks 12 & 13 are needle drops of The Squires 1963 single. Little if any noise reduction has been used so you hear every click and pop on the needle drops which is a good or bad thing depending on your perspective on noise reduction.-Original

Julian's Hot Wheels Blog: 1965 Mercury Comet Cyclone (2017 RLC Exclusive Car Culture HW Redliners - 0/5!)
"Not for individual sale." That's right, it's part of an RLC exclusive set after all. It just makes it that much more awesome to have in the collection. I'm truly glad I was able to obtain these, considering how many issues the HWC website has. Totally worth it though. The metal/metal, rubber tires, premium details, and super exclusivity are to die for!

How the Original Bullitt-Movie Mustang Was Rediscovered | Feature | Car and Driver
Following the story is like following the links in a chain.
Steve McQueen’s Highland Green 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastback vanished 38 years ago. The ominous-looking pony car with the barking 390-cubic-inch V-8, which starred in one of the greatest chase scenes in movie history in the film Bullitt—with McQueen doing the driving in many of the shots—may have been lost, but it was never forgotten. Certainly not by Mustang aficionados, who speculated on its whereabouts for almost four decades, titillated by the occasional internet post or word of a spectral sighting. So when the Bullitt Mustang suddenly appeared at a Ford press preview at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 14, 2018, the assembled journalists, car nuts, Ford execs, and Mustang fans went full geek.
The synchronicity of the car’s breaking cover in the same year as the Bullitt movie’s 50th anniversary, and at the same event where Ford revealed its 2019 Mustang Bullitt tribute model—the third since 2001—is just too perfect for it to have been happenstance. And yet it largely was.
