:
Led Zeppelin opened up for Spirit in '68
when they went on to tour for this debut album.
Led Zeppelin were strongly influenced by Spirit
and it is well-known today that Jimmy Page lifted
the instrumentation from parts of Taurus for
"Stairway To Heaven".
Zeppelin also 'borrowed' the riff of "Fresh Garbage" during early live performances of the song "As Long as I Have You".
The song "Fresh-Garbage" has been sampled
in the Pink song "Feel Good Time", found on the
soundtrack of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

THE BEACH BOYS




The store is closed


The most famous unfinished album in rock & roll history
After forty-four years, the long awaited release of the Brian Wilson and Beach Boys masterpiece, Smile Sessions, is finally here. With the full participation of original Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love, and Brian Wilson, Capitol/EMI has, for the first time, collected and compiled the band's legendary 1966-'67 sessions for the never-completed SMiLE album.
xxxIn several sessions between the summer of 1966 and early 1967, The Beach Boys recorded a bounty of songs and drafts for an album, SMiLE, that was intended to follow the band's 1966 album, Pet Sounds. The master tapes were ultimately shelved, and The Beach Boys' SMiLE has never been released (some tracks were released on earlier compilations).
xxxDrawn from the original masters, SMiLE Sessions presents an in-depth overview of The Beach Boys' recording sessions for the enigmatic album, which has achieved legendary, mythical status for music fans around the world.
xxxThe music is finally released in conjunction with The Beach Boys' 50th anniversary. Predictions are the double CD and LP Deluxe Edition of SMiLE will be one of the hottest selling the coming year.
xxxRolling Stone magazine recently called SMiLE "the most famous unfinished album in rock & roll history".

PAUL AND LINDA MCCARTNEY

DELUXE BOOK EDITION





A short excerpt from the Ramming documentary being featured on the super-dooper-deluxe edition
Archive Collection reissue of Paul & Linda McCartney's 1971 Masterpiece, Ram. Ram on!

As half of the singing and songwriting core of The Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney stands among the most influential figures in 20th century music. With John Lennon, guitarist George Harrison and drummer Ringo Starr, the Beatles changed the face of popular music forever.

Nearly all Beatles songs were co-credited to Lennon-McCartney, but McCartney was solely responsible for many of their best songs...

RAM is the latest addition to the Paul McCartney Archive Collection and the most anticipated, and ambitious, yet! Available in a variety of different configurations, McCartney has personally overseen every aspect of this project, and the results are spectacular.

RAM, originally released in 1971, is the only album to be credited to both Paul and Linda McCartney and has gone down in music history as one of the most revered in McCartney s catalog. (Amazon.com)

Notes
- RAM represents the first full solo McCartney production after the breakup of The Beatles.
- RAM gave McCartney his first No. i Hits in his solo career: Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey went to No. 1 in U.S. Billboard Magazine and the RAM album entered UK charts at No. 1.

The 112 page book includes an interview with Eirik Wangberg!

REVIEWS

5 out of 5 stars: Effortless genius from the true pop master by Garbageman, ref. Amazon.com

This is a real hard album for me to even write about. But I got my hands on a remastered copy this week... and... BAM. There it was again: those melodies... those creeping, effortlessly-written, sensual melodies, jamming every song until they are overflowing with sound... I mean, does it really get any better with Paul?

A quick glance of the reviews here makes me sick. "Not as good as John's 'Imagine'.." "they spent too much time on the farm"... "too whimsical"... bah! What a legacy he had to uphold! And even from supposed Professional Beatleologists! But here he does it with grace and style and a fantastic sense of what needs to go on in a perfect pop song. Truly, there aren't any better pop songs on one single Beatle-related album than "Ram".

The influence of this record is still being felt. You could uphold the entire post-90's indie-pop scene (from Elephant 6 and their cadre all the way up to the new crop of SubPop poppy singers a la Fruit Bats and Long Winters) and trace it to "Ram". That a whole new, younger generation of fans has discovered the fountain of melody within pleases the heck out of me.

"Long Haired Lady", "Back Seat of My Car", and "Uncle Albert" are pure Paul pop masterpieces each. The hidden ditties, "Ram On", "Smile Away", "Eat At Home", are all essential in the context of the whole thing. "Dear Boy" and "Heart of the Country" are so fantastic in their simplicity and confidence you could almost see him writing them in literally minutes. The whole thing is just excellent... tasty pop good-naturedness that it's almost unbelievable that he would put that photo on the back cover. He didn't need to. This album alone would have provoked a good enough response from John so as to make any photo irrelevant. (And for the record, I find "Imagine" to be a pretty decent album, but not a melodic one at that, sort of disturbing and hard to follow, and highly impersonal at that.)

This is definitely the best Sunday Morning album ever recorded and one of my top 5 Beatles-related records of all time. It never loses its sweetness. Highly recommended.

5 out of 5 stars: Party with Paul by Don Schmittdiel, ref. Amazon.com

Released in May of 1971, this is Paul McCartney's second 'solo' LP, preceding his formation of the band 'Wings' for the 'Wild Life' album. It's a one-hundred percent improvement on his mediocre self-titled 'debut' album. Although 'Ram' did yield a number one hit for McCartney, the lush 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey', that song is far from the best song in the 'Ram' collection. That simple fact is instructive about the high quality of the album, which is solid from start to finish. And while wife Linda receives co-billing with McCartney on the album cover and in the song credits, and despite some endearing background vocals from her, Linda's contributions are surely overstated here, most likely as another swipe at Paul's ex-collaborator John Lennon.

'Ram' is, if nothing else, a fun collection of witty pop and rock songs. It most likely was intended as nothing more than that. While its style would certainly encourage John to continue ravaging Paul's productions for their pop sensibilities and 'meaninglessness' relative to his own crusades for peace and justice in the world, Paul's work probably produced a lot more peace and joy than John ever Imagined (pun intended). The songs on 'Ram' are not simply bouncy dance music, but bouyant numbers that bring pleasant and comforting images to heart and mind. Songs such as '3 Legs', 'Smile Away', 'Monkberry Moon Delight' and 'Eat At Home' are just a joy to experience, while the lighter fare, such as 'Heart of the Country', 'Long Haired Lady', and 'The Back Seat of My Car' are poignant and touching. There is an incredible mix of sounds, an aural cornucopia, on the production that keeps the listener attentive and interested.

Despite the quality of these performances, only 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey' has received consistant exposure over the years, which actually contributes to the album aging well and remaining fresh and accessible. After taking hits for the quality of the musicianship on his debut LP, Paul pulled together a slick, professional collection of studio performers for this outing, the most notable of which are future Wing drummer Denny Seiwell, and guitarist Hugh McCracken, who has backed up everyone from Steely Dan to Paul Simon. Also featured is guitarist David Spinozza, who ironically would later contribute to John Lennon's 'Mind Games' LP.

'Ram' rose to number two on the album charts in mid-1971 (USA), and remained in the Top 100 for 37 weeks, a testament to its quality despite the widespread panning it received in critical reviews. It's really a shame that McCartney has had to endure so much undeserved criticism over the years for what his music isn't, rather than having his work appreciated for what it is. Being a Beatle certainly had a down-side. But be advised that 'Ram' is as much an unheralded masterpiece as any production associated with a Beatle could be, a disc sure not to collect much dust on whatever shelf it may grace. Paul once remarked that he couldn't understand how anyone could listen to this disc and not enjoy it, and I wholeheartedly agree. It's a five star effort.

Collector frenzy!

Due to the Charles Manson murders the release of Eirik's production of this fine band and their 60's album was delayed...

Unreleased for over 20 years, this masterpiece of American, late-Sixties garage rock will now be widely available on vinyl and iTunes for the first time ever. Produced by Eirik Wangberg for Terry Melcher, Equinox Records, the Sacramento-based Public Nuisance laid down gritty, baroque psychedelia that was too hard for the hippies and too poppy for the punks. The end result is the perfect amalgam of all that was great about the era.
xxThe album was shelved after the Manson Family murders took place at the home Melcher had leased to Roman Polanski. In the aftermath, all of Melcher’s projects at the time were shelved and “Gotta Survive” suffered that unfortunate fate.
xxReleased by Frantic Records in 2002 and out-of-print for quite some time, Third Man presents “Gotta Survive” with new artwork and mastered directly from the original two-track analog masters by Ron McMaster (the band’s drummer!) at Capitol Mastering in Hollywood, CA. Comes with MP3 download code for the entire album. (By Blackwell, Third Man Records)

Information on the small golden disc used in these pages as "No Image Available":

NASA
placed a more ambitious message aboard Voyager 1 and 2-a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. The Voyager message is carried by a phonograph record-a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. The contents of the record were selected for NASA by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan of Cornell University, et. al. Dr. Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind and thunder, birds, whales, and other animals. To this they added musical selections from different cultures and eras, and spoken greetings from Earth-people in fifty-five languages, and printed messages from President Carter and U.N. Secretary General Waldheim. Each record is encased in a protective aluminum jacket, together with a cartridge and a needle. Instructions, in symbolic language, explain the origin of the spacecraft and indicate how the record is to be played. The 115 images are encoded in analog form. The remainder of the record is in audio, designed to be played at 16-2/3 revolutions per minute. It contains the spoken greetings, beginning with Akkadian, which was spoken in Sumer about six thousand years ago, and ending with Wu, a modern Chinese dialect. Following the section on the sounds of Earth, there is an eclectic 90-minute selection of music, including both Eastern and Western classics and a variety of ethnic music. Once the Voyager spacecraft leave the solar system (in 1990 both were beyond the orbit of Pluto), they will find themselves in empty space. It will be forty thousand years before they make a close approach to any other planetary system. As Carl Sagan has noted, “The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced spacefaring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this bottle into the cosmic ocean says something very hopeful about life on this planet.”
