ROCKOLLECTIONS: CHRISTMAS PARTY 2014 PT.2

The Annual Two-Week Christmas Party continues!

And I see now we can pop Hanukkah in there too.

This time I'll continue a tradition started a long time ago.

I'll play the Beatles Christmas Message of 1964- since it is 2014, keeping that close distance of 50 years!

These are the little plexidiscs they would send to their Fan Club Members- but 50 years...do you believe that, oh man, lol?

Also I'll do something I've been meaning to do for years,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: GEORGE AND JOHN ON THE BBC PT.2 END

Again I remind you this was originally broadcast in 2010, that's why the Math is off.

Moving on to John Lennon in our remembrance of the lives of two men who were a part of something that probably will never happen again, the phenomenon that was the Beatles.

Looking for a new approach for this remembrance of the deaths of George Harrison and John Lennon, I finally gave the BBC tapes a shot.

And these selections from 1963 are a JOY, a REVELATION!

Full of humor, they play so many both known and obscure old American Rock & Roll songs you can see how closely…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SONGS THE BEATLES GAVE AWAY PT.2 END

It's another large portion of Songs The Beatles Gave Away.

Played in order of release, and this time from where we left off in 1964 thru 1969.

In those early days, this was done with the encouragement of the Beatles' manager Brian Epstein, as they supplied some of their songs to artists also managed by Epstein.

And usually they were friends with John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Artists began clamoring to secure original Lennon–McCartney songs,…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: SONGS THE BEATLES GAVE AWAY PT.1

John Lennon and Paul McCartney started writing songs together in the late 1950s and by 1963 were prolific composers.

There were primarily three categories of Beatle Songs that were written but not released by the Beatles:

Recordings by the Beatles that the group tried but ultimately decided not to release.

Lennon–McCartney songs that the Beatles deemed unsuitable for the group at the outset and did not even attempt to record themselves.

Songs that…
