Dinosaur Music issues
audio documentaries: (4/13/97) Dinosaur Music has
issued three very interesting Beatle audio documentaries on CD.
The most fascinating to us is "Another Clue For You
All," which features the audio soundtrack to a 1969 TV
special, "Paul McCartney: Told For the First and Last
Time." This was an examination of the Paul Is Dead
phenomenon at the height of the hysteria, hosted by none other
than attorney (and future Dream Team member) F. Lee Bailey.
Bailey seems predetermined to come to a certain conclusion
because he seems more receptive to evidence that Paul is dead and
skeptical when presented with evidence he isn't. The most telling
moment revealing the ludicrousness of it the whole PID theory
comes when Peter Asher of Peter & Gordon (who should know,
since his sister was dating Paul!) gives Bailey the definitive
word -- that Paul is indeed alive and many of the clues are in
the minds of those who found them -- and Bailey doesn't believe
him. Even if you feel, like we do, that the Paul Is Dead legend
is pure foolishness, this disc is a fascinating and historic look
back at that craziness at the time it happened. Also issued by
Dinosaur are "Give My Regards To Rush Street," an
excellent quality McCartney interview from 1984, and
"Backwards Beatles," a detailed audio study of the use
of backwards tapes in Beatle music, a great companion to the Greg
Panfile piece we have on our site. All three are available from Dinosaur's web site
. Dinosaur plans to issue three more audio documentaries in July.
We look forward to them.
