Catching Up With The Rolling Stones - if possible

In June 2016,The Rolling Stones released their new project "The Rolling Stones Totally Stripped."It shows,along with other current plans,that they are as active and creative as ever.This record/DVD project reworks a 1995 documentary film and album called "The Rolling Stones Stripped."The basic documentary film was revised and,in addition,three concerts never before released in their entirety were included on three DVDs for a total of four DVDs and a CD compiled from the live shows in Paris,Amsterdam and Brixton,England respectively.Tonight's sample "Brown Sugar" is from the live show at Olympia in Paris.
The whole idea was to tone the music down to its essentials,minus any commercial considerations.So "Totally Stripped" is a lightly produced collection of live tracks the band had hoped for,yet never fully achieved till now.The multi-media documentary relates their journey to the real music both in the studio and in concerts,on film and on recordings.Some of the tracks are covers of songs written by other artists.*
Besides this project,the Stones are releasing a film about their recent first concert ever in Cuba,"Havana Moon."It will play in theatres for one night only,23 September.*
The band hasn't forgotten the stage this autumn,either.They will be performing at the monumental "Desert Trip" two-weekend series of concerts in Indio,California at the Empire Polo Club,site of the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival,by a number of rock musicians including The Rolling Stones,Paul McCartney,Bob Dylan,The Who,Neil Young and Roger Waters.The Stones will share the bill with Bob Dylan on 7 and 14 October.The concerts are sold out.*
Following these dates,the Stones will play at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 19 October.So there will be plenty to listen too this fall.It seems likely new film and record projects will come out of "Desert Trip" at the very least.

THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK - THE TOURING YEARS


New Beatles Project Set For September Release:Film/Record

Grammy Award-winners producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell have teamed up on a new Beatles project,a companion record for noted director Ron Howard's authorised documentary feature film "The Beatles:Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years,"chronicling the Liverpool lads' live performance career.The record focuses on The Beatles' three sold out concerts at the Hollywood Bowl,Los Angeles in 1964-65.
For this recording,Martin and Okell have mastered and remixed the original three-track concert tapes at Abbey Road Studios in London;in addition,they are including four previously unreleased bonus tracks from the Hollywood Bowl performances.The unreleased material includes:
14.You Can't Do That
15.I Want To Hold Your Hand
16.Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby
17.Baby's In Black*
Both the film and record are scheduled for release on 16 September 2016.The record may be pre-ordered now from The Beatles website.It will ship on or around 9 September 2016.The CD version will come with a 24 page booklet with new liner notes by David Fricke.It costs 18.95 US and the LP version is 24.98.*
Academy Award winner Ron Howard has been at work on the film since at least 2014.Giles Martin's father,the late producer George Martin,had also produced a live recording of the Hollywood Bowl concerts,but Giles Martin and Okell have utilised today's more advanced technology and an expanded playlist for their new project.

CHVRCHES – BURY IT (FEAT. HAYLEY WILLIAMS) - Scottish group,vocalist Lauren Mayberry


new song - CHVRCHES - Bury It (feat. Hayley Williams Of Paramore) (Lyric Video)


The Beatles - Norwegian Wood (Super Rare Version)


12 The Beatles - Blackbird (Anthology Outtakes 3 CD 1)


Tonight's Music:About the New Song "Bury It"

The new song "Bury It" is by Chvrches,a synth pop group out of Glasgow,Scotland.Their lead vocalist is Lauren Mayberry and on this track they are joined by Hayley Williams of Paramore,who said she was honoured to participate in it.The two other members of Chvrches are Iain Cook and Martin Doherty.*
The name Chvrches is pronounced "Churches."It alludes to the fact that the ancient Romans used the letter V as the capital letter form of u.So under this practice you would see CHVRCH instead of CHURCH on a building inscription,for example,or COVRTHOUSE instead of COURTHOUSE.The practice was carried over into English until the modern era,when the letter u received its own capital letter form,U.*
The song is shared here in both lyric video and live performance video formats.

Fort McMurray Disaster:Wildfire Shows No Let Up;Rescue Convoys Continue

As of Saturday morning,there was no improvement in the wildfire catastrophe that has virtually emptied what remains of Fort McMurray,Alberta,sending its 80,000 residents fleeing north or south from the conflagration.According to Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale,the situation remains unpredictable and dangerous.The convoys that guided around 7500 evacuees from their crowded refuges in the oilsands camps north of the city on Friday would continue today,he said.Hopefully another 7500 of the 20,000 northern evacuees would be convoyed to safety south of Fort McMurray today.The residents of the city were split up into those fleeing north and those rushing south when the main highway through town,Highway 63,was closed by the raging blaze.They are taking refuge as far south as Edmonton and Calgary in everywhere from hotels to reception centres and the homes of friends and relatives.
Police are marshaling the evacuees into small convoys of 50 vehicles each that are then led down the road one convoy at a time.A handful of stragglers in the city have been escorted out by the RCMP.Wildland firefighters from other provinces are being brought into the area to relieve their exhausted Alberta colleagues.Fires or the threat of fires are currently rampant across the entire boreal forest in the dry and windswept conditions.
The fire,which is likely to burn on for weeks,will result in losses of well into the billions of dollars.So far,there are no known fatalties from it,but it is surely a chapter in the history of North American wildland fire,given the scope of the evacuations and the extreme fire behaviour,such as firenadoes,whirlwinds of flame that have been spotted among the trees and brush of Fort McMurray.
