Our heroes were on fine form in Farnham last night - can't see them stopping just yet !


Which album cover was it that suggested McCartney had died?


Wasn't it Abbey Road? Macca was dead because he wasn't wearing shoes, Lennon was the preacher, Ringo the undertaker and Harrison the gravedigger.

What a cheerful way of looking at an album cover.  Grin


And he's still with us today.

The story I read years ago said that if you look at the numberplate on the VW Beetle on the left of the picture, the registration ends with "281F", translated as Paul would have been 28 IF he'd still been alive. OK that doesn't quite tie in with him being born in 1942 and the album cover being from 1969 but a good try...

I suspect that if Fairport were going to throw in the towel they would just ... well ... say so. What purpose would be served by secret messages?

Godzee: One's imagination can of course run riot on the most tenuous 'evidence' if you let it. Think Manson and the White Album.

you are right because secret messages is an excellent album by the Electric Light Orchestra

Both Sgt Pepper's and Abbey Road are cited by the "Paul is dead" lot - Abbey Road for the reasons stated (and also because McCartney is out of step with the others), Sgt Pepper's for the floral arrangement of a guitar that some insist actually spells out "PAUL?"

And also because Paul has his back to the camera on the group picture on the back cover so his face cannot be seen.

Is it telling something that a new Fairport Convention album generates re-hashing 50 years old **** about the Beatles?
Just asking.

Just asking.

While we’re on the subject, however, it is well known that the imposter is often identified as William Campbell or “Billy Shears” (hence the use of that name on the Sgt Pepper album). There is an interview with Paul McCartney at event, during which Olivia and Dhani Harrison show up and the former greets him by saying “Hello Billy.”

Coincidence? I think not.

I, for one, am finding the discussion pretty interesting and learning a lot from it.

That must have been a bit disconcerting, having Mick's mum shouting upstairs at you!

Back on topic, I now have a copy of Shuffle and Go which looks to me like a scene from a pub in the 1950s with the teddy boy on the right taking a break from playing some songs on his guitar while a group of Morris dancers prop up the bar. Quite what the significance of the pram is I don't know. All quite nostalgic really.

As for the music, it's another pleasant collection of songs and tunes from the chaps with none particularly jumping out at me on first listen apart from possibly A Thousand Bars though it's one of those songs that could get a bit annoying on repeated listens.

It's absolutely a scene from a Cotswold/Oxfordshire pub circa late 1950s. The Aunt Sally shy and Cotswold Morris paraphernalia give the place, while the guitar, teddy boy and pram give the date. (I used to be pushed around in a pram identical to that - inherited from my elder brothers.) My view is that it marks the point at which traditional English rural folk style made way for rock and roll.

You should give Aunt Sally a go sometime. It's quite liberating being able to hurl big sticks around.

Cheers

Nick
