I'm there!
  11:46am clarke:

mornin'!! this is the first time i've been able to listen LIVE in quite a while!! i, too, saw the Beatles movie, last night. "SPOILER ALERT" (if there is such thing as a spoiler for documentaries): i enjoyed it, but it is pretty mainstream-ish. not a lot new to be seen, there, but always enjoyable. there was one footage scene that was shocking, to me. my complaints will follow if anyone wants to hear 'em.
Avatar 11:47am Michael Shelley:

"shocking" - do tell!
  11:48am clarke:

well - i was FLOORED when they showed footage of the tape loops in the EMI tape room -- astounded!!! i never had seen this in action. for me, the whole movie should be about THIS!!
Avatar 11:49am glenn:

a great tom t. tune.
  11:51am clarke:

another great moment for me was when Ringo was NON-fazed at having to turn the entire drum riser around by himself and proceeded to laugh and ROCK OUT!!
Avatar 11:52am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hell - give me a 'Revolver' movie...
I like the idea it's about 'we out the Suits on to conquer the World & were totally Together to do that - & then it was over'. It's a good premise.
Avatar 11:53am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...as w/ 'No Direction Home' about Dylan by Scorsese - it's about perceiving the Narrative in a morass of Materials, & presenting it...

  11:57am clarke:

it was kinda strange that Ron Howard spent a LOT of time on Sgt. Pepper, when the 'premise' of the flick is supposed to be them LIVE = not that i am complaining. basically though, there is not a lot of 'new' to see hear...

You rang, Michael?
  11:57am JakeGould:

So good! And this looks great. www.discogs.com...
Avatar 11:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hm. @ the time - Pepper was intended as a stand-in for Touring, which worked hugely as a Moment on release...I'll see this thing up here eventually...

Avatar 12:00pm Michael Shelley:

You're skinnier in person (perhaps being drawn puts on 10 pounds)
  12:00pm clarke:

i realize the point. but, Howard then proceeds to flip REAL fast through the other records. it is quite obvious what his fave record is, let's just say...

Sweet YLT song. Only available via their web? Maybe wfmu can sell.
  12:04pm clarke:

also there was that crucial time BEFORE pepper that gets kinda swept under howard's rug...but, enuff on the mincing details. it is thoroughly enjoyable. another 'shocker' was that people - most of the crowd - left at the 'end of the film' before the concert footage!! ???

Saw that tour too. LA. Jerks were spitting on Joe repeatedly, and he left about a third of the way through, and never came back. They were on fire that night. Never been more pissed off. Saw the first two tours before that one too.

Avatar 12:31pm Michael Shelley:

Graham is nice guy & great musician. They werent lame - I really believe the in-ear monitors sabotaged them
Avatar 12:31pm glenn:

i'm surprised joe didn't go out into the audience and pummel the spitters. he's got a ferocious temper on him, or so i hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Parq:

I saw the Jackson group at Central Park too. I think it was 1980, and I remember that it was a free show. Sometimes time is just an unavoidable saboteur. It sounds, though, like the L.A. show that Baby saw was just a garden variety case of assholes.
Avatar 12:32pm Michael Shelley:

I once saw the Pretenders - and they were playing so quietly (with drums in Plexiglas box) that it just didnt rock at all = weird.
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Listener Baby:

I would left too. I'm surprised they weren't lynched. It was more than a couple of A-Holes doing it too. You should have seen Joe's face. He couldn't believe it. He kept asking them to please stop.
Avatar 12:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Every Single One of those Artists - the Pistols, the Ramones, X - they all said: 'We didn't call it Punk. We're not about spitting.' Oh well..

  12:39pm DANIEL KIRK:

I used to see the Bob Seger System in Columbus back in the 60's, at various little clubs, roller rinks and bowling alleys. The drummer had a setup like none I'd seen before, two pair of huge kick drums, and Seger's local hits, like "Rambling Gambling" really got the midwest crowds worked up.
  12:39pm Zev:

The Litter! (Better drum sound than the original.)
  12:40pm herb.nyc:

Free Joe J show?? Yes, it was 1980, and I still have the 2 1/4 inch WPLJ pin given out. Wait, it has I'm The Man logo on it
  12:40pm clarke:

in-ear's can be VERY helpful for performers who have hearing issues, but gosh it takes the fun out!!
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:42pm Listener Baby:

The rock and Roil cut off for IN Ears should be Lyle Lovett. Anything or body after that, not allowed..

Bad hair day, bad back day, achy leg day,...so many possibilities on any given day. As Gary Johnson said, the sun is going to explode someday anyway, so why bother?

Except for the rock'n'roll. Now that sure helps!
Avatar 12:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Giles Martin posits The Beatles were playing & singing essentially deaf - completely by muscle memory! Shea Stadium's screams are believed to have been louder than a jet engine @ close range - for the whole show. & that was their reality sonically in that whole period Live.
Avatar 12:46pm glenn:

really? you think monitors or lack thereof is why the beatles quit touring?
Avatar 12:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They couldn't hear a thing - which is reason enuff - but so, so much more. They called it Mania for good reason.
Avatar 12:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ringo: 'What more could we do out there?'
Avatar 12:49pm Michael Shelley:

In the movie it amazing how good they are - how great they're singing - just mind blowing. The worst show (in the film ) is the one in Japan - where the crowd is relatively quiet
  12:49pm clarke:

it was of course a LOT of things. they were just to NICE to be assholes enough to hide all the time.
Avatar 12:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It was ShowBiz - they were the Biggest - exactly what they had worked for. In yer early 20s on the Make. Hendrix's touring schedule was a spiderweb across the map - No Time Off - people were inventing the Rock Tour then - they just didn't know.

i have seen that budokan show in its entirety - it is STILL great.

John: 'Don't you think we gave every sodden thing we had to be "Beatles"'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm Parq:

From the New Yorker review of Eight Days: Ringo, interviewed for the movie, remembers a period when the only way to decipher what point they had reached in a song, enthroned as he was behind his drum kit, was to observe the motion of John’s and Paul’s backsides. One presumes that George was already bending his mind toward the East, with the result that his ass remained transcendentally calm.

Re: start of today's show - can we get an all "people berating Mike Love" intro one of the days?
