FIRST and BEST?

FIRST and BEST?

Everyone knows that The Beatles were massive in the US. But Capitol Canada released their music before the US branch knew what it had – and made a better job of it. Terry Ott outlines The Fabs’ truly fab Canadian releases and asks: what happened to the decent reissue programme? Earlier this year The Beatles: The US Albums CD box set was released to much worldwide hoopla. It especially …

TALK FROM THE BIG CHAIR

TALK FROM THE BIG CHAIR

Tears For Fears did it all. But it turned out they didn’t like it. Now one of the biggest – and most psychologically dark – pop bands of the 80s have come to terms with who they are and what they are really good at. They speak to Paul Lester It’s fantastic to now be considered part of the pantheon,” says Roland Orzabal, the songwriting half of Tears For Fears, talking to RC …

There Was A TIME

There Was A TIME

A James Brown biopic, Get On Up, has earned good reviews. What it can’t do is explore the funky soul legend’s lasting influence over his fans, such as Mick Jagger, Prince, and, more prosaically, RC’s “dull and suburban” editor, Ian McCann We all have heroes.

YES - Songs From Tsongas: The 35th Anniversary Concert

Elaborate birthday bash, and a humbler bonus Though some fans may contest the claim, the five men who comprise Yes on this 2004 show represent what’s generally perceived as the band’s “classic line-up”. The gig, at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, was the final date of the tour where Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White performed …

- Aubrey Powell by Hipgnosis Portraits

You won’t be feeling sleepy… With album artwork generally decreasing in size from 12” LP sleeves to suit 5” CD booklets and, now, little digital thumbnail things, it’s good of Aubrey Powell to put together a hardback coffee-table tome of portraits that inspired some of Hipgnosis’ greatest designs. After all, the company he co-founded with the late Storm Thorgerson …

THE CRYAN’ SHAMES - Sugar And Spice

Chicago sunshine beat band’s 1966 debut The Cryan’ Shames were one of the more obscure names gracing Lenny Kaye’s landmark 1972 Nuggets compilation, their rousing version of The Searchers’ Sugar And Spice casting the group as one of the more retro-sounding outfits on board. The Chicago sextet’s debut single had been a cover of George Harrison’s If I Needed …

THE PINK FAIRIES - London Camden Dingwalls (7th November, 2014)

View: near front After 45 years, on-and-off, in the trenches of psychedelia, it’s a miracle the Pinks were able to field a line-up at all! Bassist Duncan ‘Sandy’ Sanderson is now the band’s frontman, and chronicler of their woes. Original drummer, Russell Hunter, due to form a four-stick attack with George Butler, was in the sick bay. Guitarist Larry Wallis also had a …
