Pink Floyd's upcoming album, The Endless River, was originally supposed to be the second disc of 1994's The Division Bell. Although fans were aware of the fact that the material originated during those sessions, a second ambient album was intended to either be the set's companion piece -- or its second album. Drummer Nick Mason told Uncut, "Initially, we had considered making The Division Bell as a two-part record. Half to be songs and the other a series of ambient instrumental pieces. Eventually we decided to make it a single album and inevitably much of the preparation work remained unused."
David Gilmour explained that this album is a love letter to artistry of the band's late co-founding keyboardist Richard Wright, who died in 2008, saying, "It’s a tribute to him. I mean, to me, it’s very evocative and emotional in a lot of moments. And listening to all the stuff made me regret his passing all over again. This is the last chance someone will get to hear him playing along with us in the way that he did. . . When we finished The Division Bell sessions, we had many pieces of music, only nine of which had become songs on the LP. Now, with Rick gone and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right these revisited tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire."
Only a year after the release of his Top Three New collection, Paul McCartney has issued a box set edition of the album. The latest version of New features two CD’s -- including the original album, and the various CD and Internet bonus cuts, and six newly released cuts -- three new outtakes, and four live tracks recorded earlier this year in Tokyo.
The DVD features a promotional interview for the album and a spate of promotional appearances for New -- including McCartney’s surprise afternoon concerts in New York City and London, along with his late night TV spots with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel. Also included are the four official videos for "Queenie Eye," "Save Us," "Appreciate," "Early Days," and their respective "making-ofs."
Out now is Survivor co-founder and leader Jim Peterik’s memoir, Through The Eye Of A Tiger, which chronicles Peterik’s roller coaster ride -- twice, with Survivor and his classic band '70s group Ides Of March. The book touches upon his early life growing up in Illinois along with his once-in a lifetime -- and often hysterical -- run-ins along the way with Janis Joplin, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band -- then in their pre-fame configuration, the Allman Joys.
Along the way he showcases the ins and outs of the music industry of the 1960’s, ’70, ‘80s, and beyond starting with his 1970 Top Two hit "Vehicle" and his six Top 10 era defining '80s classics leading Survivor, including the 1982 chart-topper "Eye Of The Tiger," "High On You," "The Search Is Over," and "Burning Heart."
It was 40 years ago Sunday (November 2nd, 1974) that George Harrison launched his "George Harrison & Friends North American Tour" becoming the first solo Beatle to tour North America. Harrison opened the tour on November 2nd, 1974 at Vancouver's Pacific Coliseum.
The 30-date tour was particularly grueling for Harrison, who had blown out his voice in the rush to complete his Dark Horse album, resulting in some reporters mockingly referring to the dates as the "Dark Hoarse" tour. To make matters worse, Harrison and his band were often playing two shows a day, with some dates not selling out. The show, which had already had pacing problems due to Harrison's choice of material, featured guest spots by saxophonist Tom Scott and Billy Preston, as well as two long Indian music sets by sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar interspersed within the concerts, which all but wrecked any momentum the "rock" aspects of the show had gained.
Although Harrison and the press liked to portray the concert audiences as hostile toward his performances, underground recordings of concerts -- taped in such cities as Fort Worth, Long Beach, Los Angeles, and Baton Rouge -- show boisterous fans cheering the show, including the songs from Harrison's soon-to-be critically bashed Dark Horse album -- which didn't hit the stores until the tour was halfway over.
It was 38 years ago today (October 31st, 1976) that Elvis Presley last recorded professionally. Elvis, who was finishing up his latest round of sessions, recorded in the Jungle Room of his Graceland mansion in Memphis. He taped his vocal for a cover of "He'll Have To Go," which had been a Number Two hit in 1960 for the late Jim Reeves.
In the days prior to the session, Elvis, who due to health issues insisted on recording at home with a portable studio, had also recorded "Way Down," which went on to be his final Top 20 hit during his lifetime. Also recorded was a cover of the late Johnny Ace's 1955 Top 20 hit "Pledging My Love," and Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "It's Easy For You." All four of the songs appeared on "The King's" final album, 1977's Moody Blue.
It's Friday (October 31st), which means it's time for your weekly Foo Fighters track. This time the song is "Congregation," which was recorded at Nashville’s Southern Ground studio with assistance from Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band. The making of the song and the musical history of the city in which it was recorded will form the basis of Friday night's third episode of Sonic Highways, the eight-part HBO series documenting the creation of the new Foos album.
Metallica is prepping remastered deluxe editions of the band's first two albums, 1983's Kill 'Em All and 1984's Ride The Lightning, and is asking for help from their fans to put the sets together. Anyone who has photos of the group, along with memorabilia or audio of concerts Metallica played between 1983 and 1985, is being asked to submit them for possible inclusion in the reissues.
The band said in a post on its website, "We want it all . . . Did you manage to sneak a video camera into a show long before they fit in your pocket? Maybe your old instamatic camera for some snapshots? A cassette Walkman with a microphone? We're looking for anything and everything . . . audio, video, photos, fliers, ticket stubs, the set list you picked up off the floor and in general any mementos you may have from that around that time."
