Right. Some of those pics show Don Rathbone. That, plus the haircuts, tells us how early it was. So, Haydock was using the Fender 6 right from the beginning.

I know I've read about this, but it may have been only on the liner notes of an album.

So I ask -- can someone here direct me to a link that discussed Eric's bass? Or if instead the info is indeed ...

I'm British and old (well, almost approaching 60!) and I recall that Brian Matthew's radio programme was called Saturday Club and there was another radio programme called Pick Of The Pops. As far as I ...

I always thought that the Top of the Pops radio show and the Top of the Pops television show were totally different programs.

Maybe someone who is both British and older than I am can set me stra ...

Welcome news indeed.

We've probably seen all of these performances on varioius bootlegs, but I am confident that these will be the best quality available. And that's both for sound and video.

Regarding the Dylan album, as of the time if its release, how many of the 12 songs were very well known to the typical recordbuyer in early 1969?

In the US? In the UK?

Sorry if I sounded ungracious. But when I hear about a "concert" taping, I think it's natural to expect an actually performance rather than lip-synching. We're talking about the Hollies, n ...

I did a google search, and came up with this link. Using this info, it should be easy to research chart success for artists in Australia. At least from 1966 through 1974, that is.

Thanks for that link. I'll have to see if I have a DVD player than can play that format, though.

There is a US availability on amazon's US website, but it's prohibitively expensive and a few of th ...

About a decade ago, I burned my own CD's of every Imperial/Epic album that had track differences from their UK counterparts.

I'll bet anything that these CD releases do NOT use the same mixes that ...
