Jimmy Page Says Led Zeppelin's First Rehearsal Was 'A Life Changing Experience' - Blabbermouth.net
A brand new interview with LED ZEPPELIN guitarist Jimmy Page aired earlier today (Monday, October 8) on "CBS This Morning". You can now watch the full segment below.
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.

The Beatles, "Little Child" from 'With the Beatles' (1963): Deep Beatles
Frustratingly few sources exist that present a clear picture of how the early Beatles sounded live. The Star Club tapes and both volumes of Live at the BBC allow listeners a glimpse of how they sounded in Hamburg and Liverpool. However, their first two albums, Please Please Me and With the Beatles, simulate their rambunctious live shows to some degree.
With the Beatles, in particular, emits a spontaneous sound – a feeling that the group is playing in the same room as the listener. One With the Beatles deep track that would have been a stomping number live is “Little Child,” a rocker that surely would have riled up audiences at the Cavern.

How These Former Kodak Engineers Helped Prevent World War III
During the Cold War, the US enlisted the help of Kodak to create a satellite camera for spying on the Soviet Union. This 4-minute video by CNN is a look at the program and the former Kodak employees who “helped prevent World War III.”
During the Cold War, the Kodak employees (who still meet for a monthly luncheon) were tasked with developing the KH-7 Gambit reconnaissance satellite that was used from July 1963 to June 1967.
The program in Kodak’s “Research and Engineering” division — the government side of the company — was so top secret that information was kept on a need-to-know basis: the employees didn’t know what the government was doing with their camera, and the family and friends of the employees didn’t know what their loved ones were working on.
What the employees created was a high-res satellite that gave the US the first high-resolution photos of Soviet nuclear and missile installations. It was so powerful that photos could reveal objects smaller than 1 foot in size. Even to this day, the highest resolution of the Gambit camera is still classified information.
A photo captured by Gambit on May 28th, 1967, of a space tracking radar facility at Sary Shagan in the former Soviet Union.
After the photography phase of each mission, the film would be ejected from the satellite in a capsule and recovered mid-air by a C-130 Hercules airplane as the film floated down to Earth on a parachute.
By the end of the Cold War, the Gambit satellite spy camera had exposed nearly 100 miles of film containing nearly half a million photos of the Soviet Union.

ENDEAVOUR: ALL DVD EXTRAS. – Morse, Lewis and Endeavour
Hello Endeavourists. I hope this post doesn’t find you feeling strange but bright instead and looking forward to thursday.
Below are all the DVD extras for all four series. Unfortunately the series five DVDs did not contain any extras. But here we have about 2 hours of extras. I have done this as I know that some people cannot afford the DVDs and I am not sure if other countries get these extras.
I would urge everyone to buy the DVDs to support further series of Endeavour. DVD numbers are not just a good income for ITV and mammoth but are also a good barometer for ITV and Mammoth productions in relation to how popular the series is. Buying the Morse and Lewis series is also helpful but in a more indirect way.
If we want a Hathaway series to continue the Morse universe then buying the Endeavour, Morse and Lewis DVDs will help focus ITV’s collective mind.
So, lecture over and onto the extras.  Remember to subscribe, Please enjoy and remember there will be SPOILERS.

Joy: The Beatles, “Here Comes The Sun” (1969) |
...Now I can make the turn to music. When I think of where the most notable surges of happiness come in pop music, I usually find an element of friendly surprise, a joltless being snuck up upon. “Here Comes the Sun” (The Beatles, 1969) is the unavoidable example and a good opportunity to give George Harrison some Hooks love.
The whole idea of it is the sun sneaking up on us, dearly familiar despite what seems a long absence. There is a musical sneaking up too. Once the refrain and “Little darling” verses have set an amiable tone, the simple but unusually long and ever more insistent “Sun, sun, sun” bridge takes us from gentle to tremendous, its nifty triplets becoming celestial orbits...

Respect: Aretha Franklin energized two social movements with one hit song - CNN
(CNN)Nobody would call Aretha Franklin a central figure of the civil rights movement. And she was not an overt feminist.
But the singer, who died Thursday at 76, shot to fame in 1967 with a hit song that inspired millions of women and African Americans during a turbulent period of social upheaval in America.
You know the tune, and you even know how to spell it: R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
Franklin's signature song and biggest hit, "Respect" burst from dance halls, car radios and porch windows amid a turbulent year marked by racial tensions and women lobbying for equal rights.

Led Zeppelin first played together 50 years ago today, 1968
August 12th, 1968, four lads by the names of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham gathered together to start something more monumental than they’d ever thought of. The band, at this point named something entirely farmyard-ish, would later become of the most important rock bands ever. They would become Led Zeppelin.
It was on this day, some 50 years that the band, which at that time were going by the name The Yardbirds, played together for the first time when they rehearsed at a studio in Gerrard Street in London’s West End. The band would quickly ditch the left-overs of Page’s former band and instead branch out on their own as Led Zeppelin.
The first song they played was a version of ‘The Train Kept A-Rollin.’ They also played ‘Smokestack Lightning’ and a version of ‘I’m Confused’ (soon to become ‘Dazed And Confused’). The first live dates they played were as The Yardbirds, and it was not until the following month when they started to use the name Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin performed for the first time ever 50 years ago this week | Metro News
Fifty years ago this week, four young British lads came together to rehearse for the first time as Led Zeppelin, not knowing their lives were about to change forever.
It was around 12 August 1968 that Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham arrived at ‘a small room on Gerrard Street’ in what is now known as London’s Chinatown, to prepare for a Scandinavian tour after three members of Page’s band quit suddenly.
With the dates booked, Page and his tour manager Peter Grant quickly found three other musicians – bassist and session musician Jones, singer Plant and drummer Bonham – but as Jones revealed, when they first met they had no idea what to do next.
‘Literally, it was everyone looking at each other – “what shall we play?” Me doing more sessions, didn’t know anything at all,’ he said.

Fifty years on, Led Zeppelin are still idols for aspiring rock stars - A whole lotta love
They hardly make for easy listening, but the songs have retained their fame
“THERE was just wall-to-wall amplifiers, and a space for the door—and that was it,” recalled John Paul Jones, Led Zeppelin’s bass guitarist, many decades later. “The whole room just exploded.” No tape has survived of that first rehearsal on August 12th 1968, which brought together a quartet who would sell more albums over the next 50 years than any band apart from the Beatles. But listening to live bootlegs of “Train Kept A-Rollin’”, the blues tune that they practised that day, it is easy to imagine how that first jam created heavy metal music.

Led Zeppelin Held Its First Rehearsal 50 Years Ago This Week – Variety
Sometime during the week of Aug. 12, 1968, the band that would take over the world as Led Zeppelin held its first rehearsal in a small basement room in central London.
The preceding May, Yardbirds guitarist and session veteran Jimmy Page found himself without a band when the other three members — who’d seen some success since the group first formed in 1963, but had fallen out of fashion — abruptly quit. With a Scandinavian tour already booked, Page and manager Peter Grant united bassist/keyboardist and fellow sessioneer John Paul Jones (with whom the guitarist had performed on songs by Donovan and others) with two young musicians from the British Midlands, singer Robert Plant and powerhouse drummer John Bonham, both 20, who’d played together in a group called Band of Joy.
Page’s initial choices had been singer Terry Reid — who he’d seen when Reid was a fellow opening act with the Yardbirds on a Rolling Stones 1966 tour — and Procol Harum drummer B.J. Wilson, with whom he’d played on Joe Cocker’s “With a Little Help From My Friends” album. Both declined — and how different would the world be if they hadn’t?

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.

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.

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.

One can wonder when somebody makes a straight copy of a CDR with an excellent cover, why they don't copy the cover as well as the discs? The same title has been used! This cover is nice, but the CDR cover is GREAT! Anyway, a nice issue well worth the money and a great suppliment to the official Bowie At The Beeb issue.

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.

Old music: The Electras – Action Woman | Music | The Guardian
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.”

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

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.

Julian's Hot Wheels Blog: 1968 Plymouth Barracuda Formula S (2018 Walmart Exclusive 50th Anniversary Zamac Flames)
Zamacs, probably one of my most favorite kinds of Hot Wheels! So with that said, there's no way I'm not stoked about an entire set of Zamac muscle cars dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Hot Wheels!
