Well Met in Woolton (30 min)
Broadcast on Radio 4 - Tue 03 July, 2007

A reconstruction of a church fete in Woolton, Liverpool, on 6 July 1957, when 16-year-old John Lennon met Paul McCartney.
The birth of the Beatles took place at an unlikely venue: St Peter’s Church fete, where the highlight was the coronation of the Sunday School Rose Queen. It was here that a mutual friend first introduced John and Paul.
This recreation of the day by those who were there includes previously unbroadcast recollections that McCartney shared with Lennon’s half-sister, Julia Baird; it will take you back 50 years to experience a church fete like any other, except that this one sent 20th century culture off on a different trajectory.
Julia Baird's interview with Paul was recorded in 1998, as she was writing her book, Imagine This: Growing up with my Brother, John Lennon (pub. Hodder and Stoughton, 2007).
The programme also includes clips from an interview Geoff Barker recorded with Paul in 1999.

Although the Beatles' appearance on Ed Sullivan is usually considered the beginning of the British Invasion, in a way it could even be considered the beginning of the 60s, the three previous years being just an extension of the 50s.

HARRY NILSSON - PUSSY CATS (1974)

produced by JOHN LENNON

http://www.megaupload.com/pt/?d=L6OKTSG3


Listening to this album is the musical equivilent of watching a prize fighter in the decline of his career. Famously produced by John Lennon during his "Lost Weekend" period in 1974, Pussy Cats is often regarded as one of Nilsson's weaker albums due to the fact that he lost his voice halfway through the recording of it. Keeping the news from Lennon out of fear he'd abandon the project, Nilsson forged ahead, recording a slew of rock n' roll classics and engaging in drunken revelry with a huge cast of backing musicians that included Ringo, Keith Moon, Bobby Keys and Sneeky Pete Kleinow. While it's entertaining to hear Nilsson run through these oldies (each coated in a layer of Phil Spector glaze), the real treat here are his originals, which stack up as some of the most engaging in his entire catalogue--namely "Don't Forget Me" and "All My Life".
My favorite of the bunch is "Old Forgotten Soldier", where his ragged voice fits the song's context so well you'd think he's putting you on. The four bonus tracks on this one include a great solo version of "Save the Last Dance for Me", with Nilsson accompanying himself on Fender Rhodes.
tracks:

Many Rivers to Cross
Subterranean Homesick Blues
Don't Forget Me
