1979 KAMPUCHEA FLASHBACK

1979 KAMPUCHEA FLASHBACK

PAUL McCARTNEY & WINGS




Later in 1979, Secretary-General of the United Nations Kurt Waldheim approached Paul to ask for a Beatles reunion concert in aid of the victims of war-thorn Cambodia, a country which recently had changed the international spelling of their name to Kampuchea. The idea of a Beatles reunion didn't appeal to Paul and the others, but Paul organized a series of concerts at the Hammersmith Odeon in London featuring Queen, The Clash, The Pretenders, The Who, Elvis Costello, Wings and others in aid of the charity.
Rumors were ripe during the night of the Wings performance that George, Ringo and John was to appear alongside Paul, speculations that compere Billy Connolly did nothing to qualm. But Paul told the audience that "they" were not here - and they weren't.

THE WEEKLINGS ARE COMING

THE WEEKLINGS ARE COMING!


Monday, September 19, 2016

Here's the official word on the "Eight Days a Week" home video release ...
Available NOVEMBER 18TH on blu-ray, dvd AND
2-Disc special COLLECTOR’S edition (on DVD or BLU-RAY)
Los Angeles – September 19, 2016 – In The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, Oscar®-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13) explores the history of The Beatles through the lens of the group’s concert performances, from their early days playing small clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg to their unprecedented world tours in packed stadiums around the globe, from New York to Melbourne to Tokyo. Available now for preorder, the acclaimed film will be released on Blu-ray and DVD, plus 2 Disc Special Edition on both formats from November 18th, courtesy of Polygram Entertainment and Capitol/UMe.
The film is produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. White Horse Pictures’ Grammy Award®-winning Nigel Sinclair, Scott Pascucci and Academy Award®-winner and Emmy® Award-winner Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment are producing with Howard. Apple Corps Ltd.’s Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde are serving as executive producers, along with Imagine’s Michael Rosenberg and White Horse’s Guy East and Nicholas Ferrall.
After their legendary North American television debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964, The Beatles transfixed the U.S. and the tremors were felt worldwide, transforming music and pop culture forever with their records and television appearances. The Beatles’ extraordinary musicianship and charisma also made them one of the greatest live bands of all time. The first feature-length documentary authorized by The Beatles since the band’s breakup in 1970, Eight Days A Week features rare and never-before-seen archival footage of shows and interviews, plus new interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and numerous prominent observers. The film captures the exhilaration of The Beatles’ phenomenal rise to fame as well as the toll it eventually took on the band members, prompting them to stop touring altogether in August 1966 and devote their prodigious musical energy to the series of ground-breaking studio recordings for which they are best known today.
Featuring a wealth of specially created supplementary material totaling 100 minutes of extras, the deluxe home entertainment editions contain exclusively created featurettes for fans to delve even deeper into the band’s world. Accompanying these are stunning, fully restored full length performances of some of the band’s most iconic tracks including “Twist and Shout” and “She Loves You” recorded at the ABC Theatre, Manchester in 1963 and “Can’t Buy Me Love” at the NME Awards, 1964, in London, bringing the experience of seeing The Beatles in concert fully to life for all fans. A full breakdown is included below.
Cert. 12 | Feature Running Time: 100 mins
2-disc Special Collector’s Edition (DVD/BD) includes:
1 x DVD/BD feature disc
+ 1 Bonus Disc (containing approx. 100 minutes of extras, highlighted below)

Jon Savage and rare photos from The Beatles’ private archive
Words & Music (24 mins)
John, Paul, George & Ringo reflect on songwriting and the influence of music from their parents’ generation, Lennon/McCartney writing for other artists, The Beatles as individual musicians, and the band as innovators.

Again the interviews with Paul and Ringo are unseen.
Liverpool (11 mins)
The early days in Liverpool of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s are brought vividly to life by those who worked closely with them at that time including fan club secretary Freda Kelly, Allan Williams an early manager, and Leslie Woodhead multi-award winning documentary film director.

Are you going to play the tape?


 May 17, 1980 





Paul McCartney: [ sighs ] It was my understanding that we were just going to talk about the videotape, you know? Are they showing it yet?




Paul McCartney: Alright, that's fine. Just as long as they are questions about the tape - justthe tape, okay?

Father Guido Sarducci: It has to be questions about the tape? Well.. [ thinking ] ..how long did it take to make-a the tape?

Paul McCartney: Well, it took a lot of time, actually, because I play a lot of different roles on the tape. It's only about four minutes long itself, but it took over a week to shoot it.

Father Guido Sarducci: If you was still smoking, do you think it would have taken longer or shorter?

Paul McCartney: Well, it might have taken longer.. but it might have seemed shorter than that. But I don't see how that matters..

Father Guido Sarducci: Well, it would have taken longer, but it would have seemed shorter, that's your answer?




Father Guido Sarducci: Yes. We are gonna show the tape, for sure. But I just want to aks you one more question, if you don't mind. It's very important, people want to know..

Paul McCartney: It's not about marijuana, right?

Father Guido Sarducci: No.. This is a question I really hate to ask you, 'cause I know everyone always asks you this-a question, but I'm a journalist, I have to do it, if you don't mind. Paul: If, just-a if, you could be any animal, what would it-a be?

Paul McCartney: Any animal?

Father Guido Sarducci: Any animal.

Paul McCartney: [ thinking ] Koala bear.

Father Guido Sarducci: Koala bear! Did you hear? Koala bear! Is that the little animal all the time, they eat eucalypse leaves, they get-a stoned all the time! Well, you heard it - koals bear! Well, that's it. And you can take it back, America!

Paul McCartney: Okay, play the tape!
