Incredibly rare 1957 UK 6-track mono live LP, recorded in London on May 16th that year in front of an appreciative & enthusiastic audience. The quintet at the time also featured Joe Harriot on Alto, Bob Efford on Tenor, Bill Le Sage on Piano & Vibes and Pete Blannin on Bass. Despite the flimsy constuction, the sleeve on this copy remains complete & free from major splits, although it has obviously seen better days. As is commonwith these flimsy fifties sleeves, the laminate has shrunk over time, resulting in some curl at the opening, with several areas scuffed & missing laminate. That said, with the exception of a small missing segment of the rear top scalloped flipback, the sleeve has remained clearly readable with just a little edge scuffing & a bit of general shelfwear to show for the past fifty five years. The vinyl is amazing & is a true testament to the quality of the pressing in that, despite some light surface marks, it plays through without skipping, burring or any sonic distortion. There is one scratch on side two which does make a 'click' during side two tracks two & three, but apart from that historic mishap the side plays through with the same high fidelity as side one. All in all a very respectable & playable copy of this great album at a fraction of the price of a 'mint' copy, so if you want to play it rather than frame it, this is a serious bargain LK4207

See the story of Oasis and Primal Scream's label next year
The Creation Records documentary 'Upside Down' is set to be screened next year.
Featuring interviews with Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie and founder Alan McGee, the film tells the story of how the label that was home to Oasis and Primal Scream among others began, the bands it discovered and its financial dissolution in 1999. See below for screening details.
Speaking to NME, director Danny O’Connor described the film as, "A celebration of Creation, not an appraisal or review, a celebration of swagger and an attitude."
He also spoke of how the screenings won't be conventional viewing sessions. "Basically, it’s going to be like a night out," he said. "Everyone who buys a ticket gets an aftershow pass and we're going to have DJs and hopefully a few bands playing. Also, at every single one of the parties, someone from the Creation story will be there. They might be from the bands or just a player in the story, like Irvine [Welsh] or Howard [Marks], but someone will be there.

It was inevitable, really.

Godfather star apparently saw 'a very interesting character' in music producer currently serving life sentence for murder
Al Pacino will reportedly take on the role of Phil Spector in a film about the music producer's life. According to the New York Times HBO Films plans to capture Spector's life in an as yet untitled movie, with Rain Man director Barry Levinson and writer David Mamet at the helm.
Spector was behind some of the biggest pop songs of the 1960s, notably the Ronettes' Be My Baby and the Righteous Brothers' You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'. However, the producer, now aged 70, was found guilty in 2009 of murdering actress Lana Clarkson, for which he is serving a sentence of 19 years to life.
Clarkson was shot and killed at Spector's Los Angeles mansion in 2003. The producer was charged with her murder but a mistrial followed before he was eventually found guilty and sentenced last year. During the 2009 trial, Spector racked up column inches for his outlandish choice of wigs and propensity for offering controversial soundbites, allegedly telling one reporter "she (Clarkson) kissed the gun".
Shooting to begin next year on film that has co-operation of Mercury's estate and three surviving Queen members
He has played a mankini-wearing Kazakh and an Austrian fashion journalist with a penchant for anal bleaching, but Sacha Baron Cohen's next role might be his most outrageous yet – and for once, it's not fictional.
The Borat star will play Freddie Mercury in a film about the singer's glory days as the frontman of Queen, the band's guitarist Brian May confirmed today. "We have Sacha Baron Cohen, which will probably be a shock to a lot of people, but he's been talking with us for a long time," May told the BBC's Hardtalk show.
The untitled film is being written by Peter Morgan, the British screenwriter behind The Queen, Frost/Nixon and The Last King of Scotland, producers said.
In an interview with Michael Silverblatt on his acclaimed KCRW radio show 'Bookworm', Ron and Russell Mael revealed that the award winning Canadian film director Guy Maddin is working with Sparks on the film realisation of their recent audio musical 'The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman' aided by Jason Schwartzman.
The interview reveals that Silverblatt, who has known Maddin since he was a teenager, gave a copy of the musical to Maddin who loved the material and, it turned out, is a fan of the band. ' am a big fan of Guy's films.he really is one of the best film makers in the world now. I was stunned when I first saw his films' declared Ron Mael in the interview
The draft scripts for The Beatles' films A Hard Day's Night and Help have been donated to the British Film Institute by director Richard Lester.
Simply titled The Beatles and Beatles Two, they form part of Lester's archive, which is all going to the BFI. The treasures include correspondence from Hollywood stars Audrey Hepburn, Raquel Welch and Charlton Heston. The archive also contains a "begging letter" from Spike Milligan, who offers to do laundry in exchange for a job.
Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, in collaboration with Revolution Films, is set to announce his first foray into movie production at Cannes next week. And yes, it’s Beatles related. Based on the old historic tale of the Fab Four’s final years as a group, as told by Richard DiLello in his 1972 book The Longest Cocktail Party, we're not sure who's playing Lennon yet, but here's some further details courtesy of The Guardian.

Directed by Danny O'Connor, Upside Down is set to tell the warts'n'all story of Alan McGee's notorious record label, founded with Dick Green and Joe Foster in 1983. No doubt a whole lot of debauchery was involved, but what else? The Guardian elaborate...
Apart from the classic pop music, dodgy haircuts and car crash fashion, the memories of us 80's teens are filled with classic movies of the decade. None are more memorable than those written or directed by John Hughes who sadly passed away last week.
Where would we be without greats such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone, Uncle Buck, the National Lampoon's Vacation movies and so many more...
Rest In Peace John and thanks for the movies that defined a generation.
