Dhani has also released the second single from the album, “Admiral of Upside Down.” According to a press release, “The flourishing orchestral song has the motion of a never-ending cycle, emblematic of personal growth and evolution, which offers listeners a perspective into Harrison’s own developments and introspective thoughts that he’s explored while creating the album. In crafting this solo project, he’s taken a deep dive into his own identity, and from that has emerged an audio experience of self-awareness. ‘The record is about self-discovery, self-love, self-healing,’ Harrison explains. ‘You can’t be loved until you learn to love yourself. You can’t help others until you learn to help yourself.’ In this new stage of his musical transformation, Harrison steps it up with a grand-scale vision that begs for a spectacular live presentation. The sound stems inspiration from visionary icons like David Bowie, Radiohead and Massive Attack, to fellow film composer Hans Zimmer. ‘It’s an introspective trip from where I was to where I am now,’ he says about the album. ‘I had things happen during recording this that changed my perspective on everything.’”


FAN WHO GOT THE BEATLES’ AUTOGRAPHS IN NOTTINGHAM IN 1963 IS FINALLY SELLING THEM

By Posted on 0 5

Kathleen, or Kate to her friends, was a 20-year-old Beeston girl in 1963 and on Thursday, March 7 saw The Beatles up close at the first of the band’s four visits to Nottingham. What’s more, she got them to sign their autographs for her album. The autographs go under the hammer at Mellors & Kirk on October 4, and are estimated at £1,000 to 1,500.

The postcard-sized leaf is signed “Love from John Lennon XXX” and “George Harrison X”. Theirs are the most highly prized Beatles signatures – for the obvious reason there will be no more, but also because the piece dates from the early years, the height of Beatlemania.

Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers fame has also signed the same piece. The Nottingham event was the first of manager Brian Epstein’s six ‘Mersey Beat Showcase’ concerts at different venues, which also featured Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, the Big Three and Cilla Black.

Recently Mellors & Kirk sold all four Beatles signatures obtained by a former worker at the Old England Inn on the A1 where the band stopped en route for a late night supper. She nipped out of the kitchen and got their signatures on a scrap of paper, for which we obtained £2,500 from an American collector. Beatles memorabilia commands high prices at auction as people want to own something directly connected with the most influential pop musicians in living memory.

Ringo’s own copy of the Parlophone Beatles album of 1968 sold for $790,000 in 2015, and a Sergeant Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band LP signed by the Beatles sold at auction for the equivalent of £190,000 in 2013.

That sort of money would have been unthought of in March 1963 when the band had to unload their own equipment from a van when they arrived at the Nottingham venue, the Elizabethan Ballroom on the top floor of the Co-Op in Upper Parliament Street. Amazingly, on the night the room was apparently only half full.

It was to be a very different story on The Beatles’ three other visits to Nottingham later in 1963 and early 1964.
On May 23 in 1963 they were at the Odeon sharing the billing with Roy Orbison, and on December 12 that year returned to a tumultuous reception from thousands of ecstatic young fans. All police leave in the city was cancelled and a fleet of ambulances were put on standby. The Fab Four also visited the city on November 5, 1964.
Kate has treasured her memento of that historic night for 54 years, but isn’t sad to part with it because somebody else will treasure it.
It goes to show that its often the objects acquired without the least thought for future profit that turn out to be the best investments.
John, Paul, George and Ringo have attained a sort of immortality that only artists with something unique can. There is something so new and appealing yet sweet and sentimental about the lyrics and music which changed the way a new, post-war generation of baby boomers woke up to music.
