With Ringo Starr turning 76 next Thursday I thought a Ringo rarity was in order for the BROW this week. Have a listen to Ringo's duet with the late, great Cilla Black of his sixties cover with The Beatles, "Act Naturally" (originally a Buck Owens single). This comes from Ringo's appearance on Cilla's variety show in 1970. Check it out at the link above. BROW = Beatles Rarity of the Week. Happy 4th!!

For BROW this week, listen to George Harrison's rehearsal performance for the 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration tribute to Bob Dylan from Oct. 1992. Your sure to recognize this Dylan cover performed earlier by George on his All Things Must Pass LP set. The song is called "If Not For You" and BROW is short for Beatles Rarity of the Week. Listen in at the link above.

The focus for BROW is on Paul McCartney this week who will be turning 74 tomorrow. Click the link above for a Wings Over Switzerland version of "Give Ireland Back To The Irish" recorded way back in the summer of '72.

A new BROW this week from John Lennon. It's a home demo from The Beatles days called "Hold On (I'm Coming)."

BROWcast returns this week and gives a rough mix of of "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" that isolates certain overdubs that are not as clear in the official mono or stereo mix heard on the White Album. The organ is isolated for the first two sections, distorted electric guitar for the third section, hi-hat and tambourine for the fourth section, and piano for the final section. Presented this way you just might pick up on a few bits here and there that you've missed before. Please join me at the link above.

Join me for BROWcast this week as we'll have a listen to George Harrison's bluesy b-side "For You Blue." This version is exclusive to the Let It Be film, now out-of print and causing this mix of the song to be outside of the realm of availability. It's all at the link above.

BROWcast: This week I'm featuring a nice performance of "I'm Happy Just To Dance With You" sung by George Harrison and performed by The Beatles on their BBC radio program From Us To You recorded on July 17th, 1964 to promote their new film A Hard Day's Night. Check it out at the link above.

Because of the deficit of commercially accessible early live recordings by Paul McCartney & Wings, I have occasionally featured something to give us a taste of how they sounded back when they were playing the smaller shows and were still a new band. For the BROWcast this week I present “Soily,” an all out rocker that was first heard on record as the last song on the Wings Over America LP set or the b-side to the “Maybe I’m Amazed” single taken from this set. The version presented at the link above goes back a few years before that.

This is the first (and last) #askNat to occur on New Year's Eve. In honor of such an occasion I take a look at the New Year's Eves from the sixties and what was going on in The Beatles' Universe on those days. Join me please at the link above.

This week's BROWcast features a demo Paul McCartney recorded of his own composition "Goodbye" which he gave to the young Welsh folk singer Mary Hopkin to use as a single to follow up her debut single "Those Were The Days." Paul recorded the demo in December 1968 for Mary to use as a guide for her own recording which Paul produced and plays on. Have a listen at the link above.
