Signed Contracts and Personal Biographies Handwritten by Each Member in 1961
In North America, it is generally believed that the Beatles’ recording career began on Capitol in 1964. Few know that it actually began on the German Polydor label in 1961. As Gottfridsson notes in the book for THE BEATLES WITH TONY SHERIDAN: FIRST RECORDINGS, Polydor executive and big band leader Bert Kaempfert discovered the group in a German nightclub, signing them to his own company and then releasing the songs through Polydor. The night they signed the contract at Kaempfert’s kitchen table, the four Beatles wrote brief autobiographies, reproduced here in their original handwriting. Through a combination of music, photos, documents, artwork and history, THE BEATLES WITH TONY SHERIDAN: FIRST RECORDINGS beautifully captures John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison just before they rocketed to international stardom. The earliest days of The Beatles have never been revisited in such detail.
The set includes every recording they made for Kaempfert and Polydor in 1961 and 1962. Multiple versions have been released throughout the past several decades – some in mono, some in stereo – each with distinctly different sounds. Most notably, the US versions of these tracks were overdubbed with another guitar player and drummer in an attempt to mirror the edgier sound the group had evolved into, unbeknownst to American fans at the time of their release in 1964. All versions of every track, including mono and stereo mixes, are included in the double disc set, remarkable in their difference but all bearing the same unmistakable sound of a wholly new kind of band.
Many of the Polydor tracks feature Tony Sheridan on lead vocals, a decision made by Kaempfert. However, John Lennon sings lead vocals on “Ain’t She Sweet,” and George Harrison plays an instrumental, “Cry For A Shadow.”
THE BEATLES WITH TONY SHERIDAN: FIRST RECORDINGS: 50th Anniversary Edition is a remarkable story, told through music, mementos and words, of a band on the cusp of changing music and pop culture forever. The collection is a fascinating and comprehensive view of one of the most important yet overlooked moments in Beatles history.
How would you feel if that same person presents themselves as an artist and is featured as an artist of the week or month ect. on many internet websites and radio stations?
How would you feel about some one being charted on Reverb Nation and other places as an artist/preformer when they had nothing to do with the vocals or preformace of an album or cd?
If someone wants to present a work of songs written to others to "Shop" those songs to others that is one thing but to Misrepresent yourself falsely and accept the credit for the preformance is wrong and an insult and injury to all honest artist/and true preformers!
When you work hard at your craft not only as a songwriter and also as a preformer or using your true talent as a musician and vocalist then give credit where credit is due !! However to allow someone to be played on radio or anywhere else as something they are not should not be acceptable to any honest person in the music business!!!
Hopefully you will enjoy the music mix this station offers. If you are an artist/band and would like your music played on this station, then email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get information and get you PLAYED!! Thanks again yall. J
Well, to the very few, faithful followers of Redneck Week, you
may have noticed that there havent been any broadcasts for the
past two Thursdays, and for good reason. Equipment problems
have really interferred with trying to produce a quality
broadcast that you viewers can enjoy. As we speak, every
single one of our computer servers and being upgraded, wiped
clean, and reinstalled with new specialized software. We
also have added a 50Mbs fiber optic line into the Outhouse Studio
as well as the upload speed and been beefed up to over 9Mbps,
which should take care of the freezing and jittering of the
video. We have added a couple of higher end microphones
specially designed for radio and podcasting, and we have even
installed a "green screen" in the studio hoping to be able to add
some special effects to the broadcasts in the recent
future. I know the broadcast has been slow go, and for that
I truly do appologize for that. Those of you fans who
followed my faithfully from my old broadcast, "Hillbilly Heaven
with Jason Wild" should remember that not everything then was not
exactly easy either. I hope to soon turn this broadcast
into a for profit model so I can pursue this full time and be
able to produce more shows, and turn this into my lifelong
dream. A redneck network. Thank you for keeping up
with all of this, but most of all....BEING A FAN!! You're the
greatest. See ya Thursday nigh and save me a cold one!
Be watching for our new 24/7 onling radio station LXIX Radio 69. Playing all the new music from all the new artists. Future stars will be heard here first. More to come...
