Vintage Rock

Oct/Nov 2020

VINTAGE ROCK celebrates a time when music changed the world - 45s, youth culture and the odd thrusting pelvis. Vintage Rock chronicles all the stellar artists and music, the enduring legacy of those early pioneers - and why it’s still the best way to live. Spanning the dawn of the 50s to early Beatles (pre Eastern mysticism!), Vintage Rock covers a time of Mods and Rockers, crinoline skirts and blue jeans, rock star movies and screaming-girl concerts. This special magazine rejoices in the music and verve of Elvis, The Shadows, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent and a host more, and speaks to a contemporary audience that relishes the vitality and flair of the era.

Noel and Liam Gallagher, Ray and Dave Davies, Chris and Rich Robinson, Jedward (only joking about the latter, sorry lads), there’s something about the creative tension between brothers that often makes for remarkable music. And at the head of the queue comes the formidable talent – and rivalry – of our cover stars this issue, Phil and Don Everly. When the stories of brothers in bands down the ages are retold, in the rush to trot out those old hackneyed anecdotes of fights, arguments and bad blood that feed into a wellworn narrative, the music often gets sidelined as salacious headlines take its place. When it comes to the Everly Brothers, though, we’d prefer to concentrate on the remarkable legacy they’ve left us – our cover feature this issue looks at the…

the beatles hit mayfair

A selection of unseen photos of The Beatles feature in a new collection published this month. Beatlemania: Four Photographers On the Fab Four (1963-1965) includes the work of Norman Parkinson, Terry O’Neill, Michael Ward and Derek Bayes. And it’s the latter who provides previously unseen snaps of the quartet. On 9 May 1965, the band were instructed to race around the streets of London’s Mayfair as part of filming for their second big screen adventure, Help! Bayes, then a 31-year-old photographer, heard the commotion while nearby. Grabbing his Leica camera, he shot the band on the fly as they raced around the streets of the capital. At the time, Bayes worked as an assistant at Time & Life to other photographers including Alfred Eisenstaedt, Robert Capa and Gordon Parks. He later went…

presley’s nashville sessions to get expansive release

A new 4CD/2LP collection, From Elvis In Nashville, will tell the full story of the five-day run that Elvis spent at RCA’s Studio B in Nashville in June 1970. With an additional session on 22 September, it formed the core of three of his most successful 70s studio albums: Elvis: That’s the Way It Is, Elvis Country (I’m 10,000 Years Old) and Love Letters from Elvis. Newly-mixed by acclaimed engineer Matt Ross-Spang (John Prine, Jason Isbell) and stripped of the overdubs and orchestration that appeared on earlier releases, the 4CD boxset includes two bonus discs of rare and/or unreleased outtakes from the sessions. A highlights package will be available on vinyl as a 2LP set. Under the direction of producer Felton Jarvis, the Nashville sessions are widely recognised as among Elvis’…

total satisfaction guaranteed as rory gallagher duets with the killer

A previously unreleased track featuring Jerry Lee Lewis and Rory Gallagher covering The Rolling Stones’ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction will feature on a forthcoming compilation of the late Irish guitarist’s work. The alternate outtake is culled from Lewis’ 1973 album The Session… Recorded In London With Greatest Artists, that also featured the likes of Peter Frampton, Mick Jones, Kenney Jones and Alvin Lee. In a 1984 radio interview with BP Fallon, Gallagher recalled: “We ran through Satisfaction, because Mick Jagger was supposed to come to the session. Jerry Lee wanted to do that one, but he didn’t quite know the song well enough. He asked me to put a guide vocal down, which I did. He also pretended the song’s lyric was too suggestive, but that was the sort of roguery…

rock’n’roll icons now come with strings attached

Glasgow-based musician and artist George Miller has certainly been productive during lockdown – the Kaisers frontman has created a collection of handmade marionettes celebrating some of his favourite rock’n’rollers. Miller has used his day job skills as a production designer on a BBC children’s drama to craft the figures, including Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Link Wray, Wanda Jackson and Bo Diddley. Enter Chris Taylor, member of The Razorbills, who spotted George’s work-in-progress on Facebook. Taylor explains: “I was amazed by the level of accuracy and detail that George gave each of his subjects. I also noticed correlations that linked with some personal work that I was developing at the time. I’d started to create a series of prints, based on imaginary record sleeves, of some of my favourite music performers.…

perkins and cash feature in record store day ‘drops’

Some much sought-after rock’n’roll vinyl will be up for grabs in the ‘October Drop’ Record Store Day 2020 event. To make allowances for the impact of coronavirus, the traditional Record Store Day has been replaced by three individual ‘drops’ – the first two took place on 29 August and 26 September. On 24 October, Carl Perkins’ last European concert, in Paris on 30 March 1996, will be available on double blue vinyl with an additional blue flexidisc. The die-cut gatefold jacket comes with a 12-page booklet. The release, which we review on page 86, will be strictly limited to 1,000 copies worldwide.
