BEATLES MINUTE Page Updated, & "The Beatles' Alter Ego, Sgt. Pepper" at the Arthur J. Miller Library
I have finally updated my BEATLES MINUTE webpage to include the updates from the past several months. The full 43-part series can now be viewed by clicking here.
With a couple of lite weeks at the end of this month, I'm planning to produce a few more BEATLES MINUTES:
And I'm open to suggestions for additional topics :-)
This evening I drive to Warren, Michigan to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper:
Tuesday, 6 June 2017, 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Arthur J Miller Public Library, 5460 Arden Ave, Warren, MI
The Beatles' Alter Ego, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Since its release in 1967, the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has often been regarded as the single greatest rock album ever made, and one of the first rock concept albums. This 90-minute multimedia presentation observes and discusses the landmark album track by track, citing musical and historical precedents, and illustrating the development of the songs through excerpts from interviews with the band members and clips of discarded takes.
And tomorrow I head north to Lexington:
Wednesday, 7 June 2017, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Lexington Moore Public Library, 7239 Huron Ave, Lexington, MI
The Beatles: Band of the Sixties
Explore the music of The Beatles in this 60-minute multimedia presentation (part history and part musical analysis) spanning the full 1960's: beginning with the band's seminal visits to Hamburg, continuing through Beatlemania, and concluding with Abbey Road. The program will be supplemented with audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with the band members.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
