Happy birthday Kinky Friedman (1944), Russ Ballard (Argent) (1947) and Annabella Lwin (singer of Bow Wow Wow) (1952; can that date be correct?).
Happy Halloween, everybody! (Never been my favorite holiday, I must confess.)
GEORGE HARRISON “Wonderwall Music”
Not only the first Beatles’ solo record, but a damn fine LP! I have a New Zealand LP version with the rear cover printed the right way around! (Bruce Ward, thanks!) Not only that, my LP has a Japanese poster in it, along with the LP insert! The 2014 Jpn CD of it has some amazing bonus tracks, including an instrumental version of The Beatles’ “The Inner Light”!
I remember trying to figure out which songs had Eric Clapton, as he was uncredited on the initial edition. “Ski-ing” is pretty much it, for Clapton, on this LP. And, yes, he is credited on the 2014 edition (along with Ringo Starr – again, “Ski-ing”). So, this was re-issued as an LP in 1992 or 1993, but likely not in 2014 – at least I’ve never seen an LP re-issue dated 2014!
And remember the confusion surrounding “Electronic Sound”? A few months after “Wonderwall Music”, “Electronic Sound” turned up on a new label (“Zapple Records”)…Zappa or just “ZAP”?
