The Beatles on Television (Rex Collections) (Hardcover) by Ray Tedman (Author)
The whole of the Beatles' amazing TV career is covered here, from their earliest appearances on Thank Your Lucky Stars! and Ready Steady Go! up to their live performance of "All You Need Is Love" in front of the biggest ever audience in television history—and beyond. The book is a telling record of the way in which the Fab Four swept away the media attitudes of an earlier era and replaced them with their own brand of humor, as well as their own brand of seriousness. It will be a must-have addition to the library of all Beatles enthusiasts.
Louis Armstrong - Live in Australia (2008) DVD Release Date: April 29, 2008
One of the few complete concert performances of Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, this live recording features the legendary jazz trumpeter and singer on an Australian tour in 1964, when he had already become an international superstar and a living symbol of 20th-century American culture. As a founding father of jazz he revolutionized the world of music and became one of the most influential artists and entertainers ever. The impressive structure of his melodic ideas and the radiant sonorities and flawless technique of his trumpet playing all marked him out as jazz's first soloist of genius. Louis Armstrong set new standards for swing feeling, improvisation, scat singing and command of his instrument, but also for stage presence and entertainment, providing a model for performers in virtually every field of jazz and on every conceivable instrument. With his All Stars sextet, which he formed in the wake of the Second World War, he acted as an ambassador for jazz, restlessly travelling the world. The present documentary was shot at a time when he succeeded in creating a song that was a minor miracle: Hello Dolly even displaced the Beatles from the number-one position in the charts in 1964, a fact of which Armstrong was unaware as he was touring at the time. Armstrong's associates - among them drummer Danny Barcelona and singer Jewel Brown - were always more than mere extras. Armstrong seldom gave himself a moment's respite, but he had a gift for allowing each of his musicians to display his or her talents to their full advantage in pieces that enabled him to catch his breath and to make his programme more varied. This rare treasure - including such hits as Blueberry Hill, Mack the Knife and songs from the film "High Society" - captures the great man in all his glory as both a jazz pioneer and a peerless entertainer.

Balancing introspective confession and delirious joy, the global and the personal, Flavors Of Entanglement is a tasty new musical feast from one of pop's most intriguing artists.

William F. Ludwig II passed away yesterday at the age of 91. Anybody who has ever seen the Beatles perform will immediately know that name. William F. Ludwig II was the founder of the Ludwig Drum Company.
<-- Ringo and William F. Ludwig II in 1964
It was a Ludwig drum kit that was placed on the stage for Ringo to play on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. So taken was Ringo with the Ludwig drums that after the show he asked Mr. Ludwig to make a custom set for him. Needless to say, after this, with the Ludwig name prominently displayed at every Beatles show, Ludwig drum sales went through the roof.
