New documentary film tells the story and considers the cultural implications of the Beatles’ 1968 sojourn to Rishikesh, India
Paul McCartney is back on the front pages with the Get Back documentary and his book, The Lyrics, recently released. We look back at Wings live in 1973.
1971 was a year to savour, musically. So many great albums and bands, but one band that had run their course were The Beatles. Whilst the fab four had gone their separate ways, they were all still making fab music.
Mof from Portable Radio gives us his opinion as to why Paul McCartney is brilliant. This, is why Macca is the greatest…
Eddie Taylor from Butterfly tells us all about Wings and what their music means to him. You can certainly hear Wings’ influence in the sound of Butterfly.
This week, we have Ric Sanders joining us at the barrier. Having played with Soft Machine and The Albion Band, Ric has been a member of Fairport Convention since the early 80’s. These are his thoughts on Percy Grainger, the great song collector.
The next batch of releases in the On Track series looks at the solo output of John, Paul, George & Ringo in the decade after the break up of The Fab Four and then the Becker/Fagan fronted Steely Dan.
