For those of us who like our Beatles rare...
BROWcast #130 - “Suicide” (One Hand Clapping)
September 21, 2014 07:06 AM PDT
Have a listen this week to an unreleased out-take version of Paul McCartney's "Suicide" recorded during the sessions for his One Hand Clapping film. The song was written by Paul when he was only 14 and later offered to Frank Sinatra though he was not interested.

September 14, 2014 07:27 AM PDT
On January 9, 1969, during the Get Back session rehearsals, Paul McCartney and John Lennon decide to have some more fun by turning a 12-bar blues run through into somewhat of a game where they shout out names of people that they've known over the years as well as some politicians of the time. John repeatedly shouts out out "Get Off" giving a basis for a title for this little bit of fun.

This week's BROWcast aims to get you going with a live performance for the British television program Blackpool Night Out (aka Big Night Out). Unlike The Beatles’ other three performances on the show, only audio without video survives of this July 19, 1964 broadcast. This performance of “A Hard Day’s Night" was The Beatles opening number.

August 31, 2014 07:07 AM PDT
For this week's BROWcast I've dug deep in my closet and found a 12-inch vinyl single for John Lennon's "(Just Like) Starting Over." It was only issued as a promo for radio airplay and has grown quite hard to find now. It has a different mix of the song than what is heard on Double Fantasy or the commercial single and includes a longer fade-out. Join me now as I get it on the turntable and give it a spin.

For BROWcast this week let's listen to early in the Revolver sessions when The Beatles were recording the album closer and psychedelic masterpiece "Tomorrow Never Knows."

This week's BROWcast gives us a listen to a rare version of the tune from the A Hard Day's Night LP, "I'l Cry Instead." The mono version on the U.S. soundtrack is longer due to the inclusion of an extra verse missing in the stereo mix. This is a stereo mix that contains the extra verse (well, sort of, anyway). Where did this rarity come from? Listen in and get the details and hear the track.

For this week's BROWcast we'll be visited by Ringo Starr's 4th line-up of the All-Starr Band. I'll explain who that was and a little bit more before we hear them perform Ringo's classic 1971 hit "It Don't Come Easy" live in Russia in August 1998.

Recorded on September 2nd, 1964 from a simulcast by radio station WIBG in Philadelphia, this is from a soundboard recording of The Beatles at Convention Hall in Philly having a little bit of a giggling fit during "If I Fell." Enjoy...

John Lennon got a head start on writing new material for the yet untitled first Beatles movie, in early January 1964, when he wrote and recorded the initial home demos for “If I Fell” in his London flat. Have a listen to John at home trying to get this song down before presenting it to the other Beatles for a proper studio recording.

This week I'm featuring the stereo re-issue version of "I'm Only Sleeping." This one was not included in the U.S. Albums box set mixes that came out early in 2014 and was released first on U.S. copies of the Yesterday... And Today album from the early seventies.
