Lennon Documentaries - LIVE AT ABBEY ROAD - TRIBUTE TO LENNON
Before I start on the music today I must share this link with you.
I have long stopped looking online for anything mildly amusing or supposedly 'funny'... 'comedy' sucks these days don't you think?
Then I somehow found this site...The thing that makes it even funnier is the fact that it is a truly serious site! The author/artist is not having a joke! It is not a parody!!
I still can't accept that as the truth but there you have it. Now go and look!
With you always
Now get serious for a minute..
As much as I just love to get passionately critical of most of the music I put up here I am afraid that this time I haven't much to get pissed off about.
The only bad thing about this concert is the fact that sadly, John Lennon isn't playing in it.
Erm, let me correct that a minute. There are one or two artists that really should have been left outside. First of these is the horrendous 'sugababes' and the crucifixion of both of the Lennon songs they chose to do. You will agree when you hear it.
The next-worst or possibly the absolute worst, are 'Badly Drawn Boy' who are almost unbelievable in their lack of ability to even meander their way through a couple of tracks. I swear, without joking, I could do better! They ruin the whole fucking thing.
Well, not quite. They are easily forgotten when you hear some of the other artists. Teddy Thompson(a new name to me!) is truly moving singing 'I'm Only Sleeping'. What a fucking acoustic session he gives us!
One thing about this concert is that all of the artists make the songs their own and play and sing in their own style. Sometimes this works, in the case of Dr John(YOU HAVE TO HEAR HIM!) and Teddy Thompson. Even Jamie cullum, whose head I would usually wish to see on the end of a stick above the Thames -like they used to do with the recently beheaded to ward off any troublemakers who fancied their chances with the law but, just this once, Jamie Cullum is fucking brilliant too!
I have been listening to this a lot and really wish it was a CD quality, Stereo copy.
It isn't BAD quality. It's clear and crisp sound but it is mono..
If you let that put you off then you are more stupid than G.W Bush. Or someone. I couldn't think of any obviously stupid people right now so I picked the cliche.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
Oh and the files are in 20Mb parts for reasons I won't bore you with. Let's just say this is the third attempt to upload this today. The moral here is that not all free filehost services are good. Or actually work!
