BROWcast #161 - "In My Life" (Live From 1974 Dark Horse Tour)
April 26, 2015 07:07 AM PDT
For BROWcast this week, I have a recording that comes from George Harrison's end-of-'74 Dark Horse tour where he performs John Lennon's Beatles classic "In My Life." This comes from the Tarrant County Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas on November 22, 1974.

This week I'm featuring Paul McCartney performing in D.C. on the 4th of July. Live from R.F.K. stadium, this is a performance of “My Brave Face,” a song he composed with Elvis Costello, from his newest-at-the-time Flowers In The Dirt album.

This week I'm featuring a George Harrison track released exclusively on the very rare Songs By George Harrison CD single issued with his book of the same title. It’s an upbeat number I feel sure you’ll dig called “Flying Hour,” recorded in March 1978.

April 05, 2015 05:35 AM PDT
This week's BROWcast feature's John Lennon during the sessions for the Plastic Ono Band album in late 1970. Joined by Ringo Starr on drums and his old friend from Hamburg, Klaus Voormann on bass, John plays piano and sings "Remember" though the explosive 5th of November ending has not yet been established. Not sure how he's going to end it yet, John simply plays it through a second time before it finally breaks down.

This late 1973 Wings out-take was recorded during sessions for Linda McCartney's aborted Suzy And The Red Stripes LP at a time when guitarist Jimmy McCulloch was playing with them but not yet a full fledged member of the group. The song, called "Luxi" is a nod to Radio Luxembourg and feature's Paul McCartney and Linda in the role of radio listeners that are requesting tracks from the Band On The Run LP and Denny Laine as the lead vocalist. Jimmy plays some mean guitar over the track and Paul is playing drums. "Luxi" has never seen an official release.

This week I'm featuring take 7 of The Beatles classic "Here There And Everywhere." A portion of this take was included on the Anthology-related "Real Love" single in 1996 (and now out of print). On that release it was made into a hybrid with take 13. Here I'm presenting the complete and unadorned account of take 7.

This week I'm presenting an early mono mix of take 4 of Ringo Starr's first Beatles composition "Don't Pass Me By." This mix is longer that the one we hear on the White Album since an entire repeat of the first verse was edited out of the released version. There are a few other subtle differences too.

Have a listen to a great sampling from one of the early Wings shows, this is Paul McCartney and his new band with the show opener for the Pavilion in Montreux, Switzerland on July 22nd, 1972. The track is called "Bip Bop" and came from Wild Life, the first (and at the time, only) Wings album.

This out-take version of John Lennon's Mind Games track “Out The Blue” is a more ‘bare bones’ account of the song that does not include the prominent backing vocals of Something Different, nor does it have the pedal steel guitar heard on the master (credited on the album simply to Sneaky Pete). John’s final chorus, where he sings Like a U.F.O. you came to me, is repeated twice in this version, along with the preceding piano break. This adds nearly a minute to the song. Although John is only singing a guide vocal here, to my ears, his voice comes through great! See what you think.

The version of John Lennon's "Give Me Some Truth" is a raw account of the same take used on the Imagine album. Producer Phil Spector’s final mix was somewhat smoother and had a fade-out ending. This rougher account also continues past the official version’s fade-out to the song’s true conclusion.
