Michael Brown from The Left Banke who wrote "Walk Away Renee"  passed away on March 19th.  Another from the 60s.

That's too bad. I was just thinking about this beautiful and touching song.

John Renbourn (ex-Pentangle) has died.
I mention it because figures of the 60s generation are beginning to go at an alarming rate.
Enjoy Paul while you still can, I guess.

One of my daughters just told me One Direction fans have started a #cutforzayn movement -- as in, cutting oneself (self-harm) -- to persuade Zayn Malik to rejoin the band. I find that kind of hysteria very unsettling.    :-\

That's scary. It's good that your daughter tells you though.

Jeremy Clarkson has finally been sacked from 'Top Gear' (always thought 'Top Gear' was a late 60s Peel show).

Expect within a few weeks news of a Sky contract and a considerably higher wage.
Thatcher's children may be c*** at cinema, television, pop music, theatre, sport etc. etc. but boy can they sniff out a pay cheque. 

Chelsea supporter n'all.....figures.

The Red and Blue CDs in 1993 were very expensive, in some shops £32 each if memory serves.
There was a huge amount of criticism (rightly) in the music press at the time.

I came across my vinyl Anthology yesterday, bought on the eve of its release, and that was £23.99.
My vinyl 'Anthology 2' was £22.99.
$4 seems terrific value, in line with the £2 I paid for 'Past Masters Vol. 1' last Wednesday.

Whisper it, and whatever you do don't tell any of those bearded hipsters in Hoxton, but now is the time to buy CDs NOT vinyl.
I won't tell them if you don't.

 Ringo's Photograph book - cheap edition
New edition of Ringo's book, "Photograph".
In PHOTOGRAPH, Ringo Starr reveals never-before-seen photographs and mementos from his archives, sharing memories of his childhood, The Beatles and beyond. Ringo’s lens captures his Beatles bandmates in pensive and playful moments, portraying them from the point of view of an insider, friend and skilled photographer.

In an original manuscript of over 15,000 words, join Ringo growing up amidst the excitement of the emerging Merseybeat scene, as he remembers his first car, drum-kits, girls and bands on his ‘road of happy drumming’. From Pwllheli to Delhi, obscurity to superstardom, his travels are recounted with honesty and hilarity.

“I love pictures put together, showing different times of your life, “Ringo said about the book, “At the time, I never thought that there would be a whole book of my photographs.”

The limited edition from Genesis Publications.

PHOTOGRAPH was originally conceived as a limited edition book of only 2,500 copies, which sold out within weeks. A short edition is also available as an e-book from iTunes.

Two years later, Ringo Starr and Genesis Publications announce the 'Open Edition' - a more accessible and affordable printing of his book to be released in bookstores this September 2015. The author is donating all royalties to the Lotus Foundation.

The book is available for preordering from Amazon.

I think its very (relative to The Beatles, of course) obscurity has helped 'Rain's cause over the years.

I've never understood why a 60s Radio Station isn't available on the radio dial.
The principal reason for my not listening to Capital Gold and the recent shut-down of 'Absolute 60s' (a dire attempt) is that they always insist(ed) on playing, ad nauseam, the 'hits'.
A station that focused on the likes of 'Rain' and delved into the *back catalogues of all the other 60s groups I'm sure would find a healthy audience.

STOP PRESS -
Buffalo Springfield recorded more than one song. TRUE.
Them recorded more than three songs. TRUE.
It's not illegal to play L.P. tracks or songs by obscure groups like The Artwoods. TRUE.
