Both albums are on the Wyncote label. And, guess what, the songs common to both albums use the exact same backing track! Did the group take its name from Long John and the Silver Beatles?
You can hear that two of the songs common to both albums use the exact same backing tracks on both albums, and I suspect we'd find the same for "My Bonnie" and "Shortening Bread". The record was produced by Phil Spector. If you enjoyed it half as much as me, you can double your pleasure by listening again to the song at half speed.
Band chatter confirms that Ringo is the drummer. I was moved to provide full song lyrics in a YouTube comment. They formed in Liverpool in and were active alongside the Beatles. Moonlight" was the flip side of their U. The Beatles recorded "Mr. Moonlight" in October The Merseyboys were really the Brumbeats, and their web page says they appeared on bills with the Beatles when they performed in the Birmingham area.
The group name is justified since they really were from Liverpool, and you wouldn't call their songs or sound Beatle-ish. In any case, an "I Feel Fine" parody counts as a Beatle novelty. Also, notice their instruments, George's Gretsch guitar and Paul's Hofner bass. The two main members of the Liverpool group the Merseybeats see above became the Merseys in They had a big hit with "Sorrow". It was a favorite record of George Harrison, and you'll hear he used the opening line in his own song, "It's All Too Much".
The group is played by Les Brown, Jr. They sing He's A Loser and other miscellaneous music in the show. The castaways want the group to leave so they can get help and be rescued. First the men form a group of their own, hoping the Mosquitoes will like them and want them for an opening act. They call themselves the Bugs.
But, they're so bad that the Mosquitoes want nothing to do with them. Then it's the girls' turn. But they turn out to be so good that the Mosquitoes are afraid that if they take them back they will soon be more popular than the Mosquitoes.
So the group leaves the island during the night and doesn't tell anyone about the castaways. They opened for many big acts. Both sides of this one are instrumentals and are very heavy on drums. Nicol also drummed for the Spotnicks on albums released in and Long male hair There are a lot of entries here with a lot less than that going for them.
And look at the weird coincidence with the next song in line The line, "Mom and dad, they put them down," is kind of funny given that lead singer Idy Lynn's mom, Lona Stevens, was co-writer, and her father, Abner Spector, was procducer of this record.
Don't quote me, but I doubt they are the actual musicians. The YouTube poster has kindly provided time tags for each song. This is where Paul got his inspiration for the Sgt. Pepper band. Just kidding. Does anyone else hear a shade of the Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby" "but she looks in my eyes, and makes me realize CR: Jan and Dean are reported to have been involved in this record.
However, their names do not appear anywhere on the label. Part 2 has most or all of the Beatle songs, which I think are cover versions. The Rajahs were known as "Australia's Beatles". Here's another song done by them, Kiss Me Now , which was originally intended for Gerry and the Pacemakers. If more evidence is wanted, the flip side, "Cla-wence", was also released on a 45 crediting Colleen Lovett.
Does anyone know what's with her voice, or accent? The second shows a pose similar to that on the "She Loves You" picture sleeve. John, Paul and George have the heads of crayfish and Ringo has the head of a starfish. His recordings that show up on the web are from the late s. The letter works in lots of Beatle song titles. They had the hit "Sleep Walk". Santo plays a steel Hawaiian guitar and Johnny plays a hollow body electric guitar.
The back of the album has photo portraits of the four Beatles. Because of this mess, Reinhart figured that this album was the same as that by the Liverpool Kids Palace , see above , which credits the Schoolboys on the record label.
CR: Done in typical Sellers' comedy style. Shane was a popular New Zealand singer. What was quite unusual, though, was the arrangement which, from all vantage points, was unlike anything The Beatles had ever done before. After the riff is heard by itself twice, a vibrant drum roll from Ringo ushers in the rest of the group for the final two measures of the intro. The first verse, as well as all of the verses, are sixteen measures long and seem to feature the guitar riff running all the way through, although it does cut out in the ninth measure and reappear in the fifteenth measure to round out the verse.
John sings lead vocals single-tracked through the first eight measures, which personalizes the sadness of the lyrics, but then switches to double-tracked vocals for the second half of the verse to highlight the title of the song. Ringo brings the group back in with a thunderous drum roll on his toms just in time for the vocal crescendo and climax of the verse, with the guitar riff and thumping guitar notes reemerging as a perfect segue into a structurally identical second verse.
The eight-measure bridge then follows, which contrasts nicely from the verses in many ways. Paul harmonizes throughout the entire bridge and ends this section with a fragrant guitar fill to usher in the next verse.
The first verse is then repeated but with some distinctive differences. After an identical repeat of the bridge with the steady tambourine beat coming in exactly when it should this time the second verse is then repeated with only minimal differences. John's descending " ahhh " in the eighth measure is not double-tracked this time, as if its appearance was an afterthought.
We almost invented the idea of a new bit of a song on the fade-out with this song; it was something specially written for the fade-out, which was very effective but it was quite cheeky and we did a fast ending.
It was quite radical at the time. Although Paul is always the perfectionist, he does flub the first bass note of this conclusion by playing one fret too high, but then quickly corrects the mistake for the duration of the song. One set of clapping hands, most likely those of Ringo, are also heard in the fade. His rhythm guitar may be very low in the mix, but his emotive vocal performance moves the listener to believe he really has been dumped and is wallowing in self pity.
Paul, being thoroughly vested in this song, insists on maintaining a high profile throughout. His bass work is suitably busy and his lead guitar flourishes work nicely as icing on the cake. His vocal harmonies, whether directed by George Martin or not, were superbly crafted and executed.
As if with an open-mouthed dumbfounded expression, John is depicting this newly informed loss to a close friend. The reason for her leaving is explained in the second verse, namely that she wants her freedom. American Releases. There's bound to be a time when we come in at 19 on the charts.
