LED ZEPPELIN

One of my favourite rock music band is Led Zeppelin. I remember going to their very successful concert in the 70s at the Kooyong Tennis Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria. Sadly, I didn't bring my camera to the concert but the memories are still strong. Recently I was going through my early music magazine of the 70s and I came across this one - the British publication, Melody Maker, dated 25 June 1977, which features a very comprehensive report and interview of Led Zeppelin. Here's the cover. The photo of Led Zeppelin on the cover was by Bob Gruen http://www.bobgruen.com/ :

LEON RUSSELL IN CONCERT 1973

Back in 1973, 25th November, I attended the Leon Russell Concert held at the South Melbourne Football Ground. Leon Russell was in fine form with his full band singing all his rock music classics. What a distinctive voice!

Paul Dainty Corporation was the promoter of the concert. In its promotional material, the concert was described as 'Australia's Biggest Rock Production!'. The concert was held in the mid-afternoon which was not all that strange for international rock concerts at the time. I do recall going to the Led Zeppelin Concert, The Rolling Stones and Black Sabbath concerts during the day in Melbourne.

Here is the ticket to the Leon Russell concert :

BAY CITY ROLLERS

Who remembers the pop music band Bay City Rollers of the 1970s? Or should I say 'Who doesn't want to remember the Bay City Rollers? Whatever ... Here's an advertisement promoting Cadbury's product CurlyWurly using the popularity of the Bay City Rollers to enhance the awareness of the product.

The advertisement states : McCor! Have you heard the latest? Cadbury's are giving away one of these full colour autographed cards of the Bay City Rollers free with every CurlyWurly you buy. It's the best news I've heard since the wee laddies came over the border themselves. There are six cards in all. So start collecting them now. On the back of each one you'll also learn how to get this McFantastic tartan scarf and rosette with a picture of the group on it. Together they're worth £1.30 but you can get them for only 80p. Phwore that's good isn't it? And it's only the start. Curlywurly are going to do lots more offers in the near future. So keep your eyes open!

The advertisement came from the UK comic Battle Picture Weekly, dated 24 January 1976.

AZTECS AT MELBOURNE TOWN HALL

AUSTRALIA

I have an interesting mystery and it relates to Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs. You see ... I have this 1971 flyer advertising The Aztecs performance at the Melbourne Town Hall in 1971. The flyer promoted the event to occur on Easter Monday however on Wikipedia, as well as other websites, it is stated that the concert was on 13 June 1971.

On Wikipedia, it states : During 1971 they continued to win over Melbourne's audiences with their power-blues repertoire, A landmark event for the band took place on 13 June 1971. Now a four-piece following the departure of Loyde, the Aztecs (Thorpe, Morgan and Wheeler, with new drummer Gil "Rathead" Matthews) headlined a major concert at the Melbourne Town Hall before a capacity crowd of 5000. The evening's performance, including Morgan's commandeering of the huge town hall organ, was captured on the album Live at Melbourne Town Hall, and which has since become known for the group's deafening performance, which (it was claimed) cracked the windows of neighbouring buildings.

Can someone clarify the truth of this matter?

THE GLEN MILLER STORY

DATELINE : 1954 - MUSIC - "THE GLENN MILLER STORY "

Recently I visited an Opportunity Shop in the town of Tecoma (Victoria, Australia). I haven't been there for a while so it is always a good indication that I would find something of interest. Apart from purchasing books, music cassettes, a VHS tape, I came across a few old vinyl records. One of those albums was a 1954 album : GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA, Music from the Glenn Miller story (10") (HMV DLP 1024 '54). This album was distributed by E.M.I. (Australia) Pty. Limited, Sydney, N.S.W. Australia

Tracks

Side 1

Band 1 - Moonlight Serenade (Glenn Miller) - Recorded April 4th, 1939
Band 2 - In The Mood (Garland-Razaf) - Recorded August 1st, 1939

Band 4 - Tuxedo Junction (Johnson-Dash-Hawkins) - Recorded April 28th, 1940
Band 5 - Pennysylvania Six-Five Thousand (Sigman-Gray) - Recorded April 28th, 1940

Band 4 - American Patrol (arr. Jerry Gray) - Recorded April 2nd, 1942
Band 5 - Little Brown Jug (Trad'l Bill Finegan) - Recorded June 2nd, 1940

On the back of the album sleeve, there is information about the album :

"The Magic of Glenn Miller"
by Geoffrey Butcher (Editor of the Glenn Miller Appreciation Society Journal, "The Moonlight Serander")

There must be a few people who have not, at one time or another, been captivated by the music of the late Glenn Miller. During the three years or so during which he led his own dance orchestra in America, he captured the public's affection to an extent which no other musician has ever quite equalled, and in his own lifetime he became almost a national institution in his native land. His dazzling success in 1939 was no overnight sensation : it followed years of sacrifice and hard work in the music business, with setbacks and disappointments enough to daunt a lesser man. But Glenn was tenacious and determined, and his high ideals finally won him through. His tragic and untimely death at the peak of his eminence and in the service of his country was a terrific shock to his world-wide legions of admirers, and to the popular music world it was a blow from which it never quite recovered.

Interest in Glenn Miller is as widespread now, nearly ten years after his death, as ever it was and his records still sell in hundreds of thousands all over the world. Now his colourful and absorbing career has been brought to the screen by Hollywood : "The Glenn Miller Story", one of the major movies of 1954 in Technicolor, traces Glenn's life from his early days as a musician in the 'twenties to that ill-fated flight across the English Channel in 1944 from which, as Major Glenn Miller, U.S..A.A.F., he was destined never to return.

The new film prominently features the music for which Glenn Miller is so well-remembered, presenting nearly a dozen of the famous tunes as an integral part of the story. But the Miller music to be heard in the picture is a re-creation by a present-day band and, however well done, nothing can match the supremacy of the original.

On this LP we are proud to present the original recordings by Glenn and his Orchestra of ten of the featured numbers in "The Glenn Miller Story" - ten of the most popular tunes the band ever played. Here is the Miller music in all its glory and in all its moods and tempos. That Glenn's distinctive style of dance music - often imitated but never equalled - has stood the test of time is only too evident in the hearing.

From the first notes of the famous theme "Moonlight Serenade" (still probably the best example on record of the haunting Miller reed style) nostalgia creeps over you in spite of yourself, and persists through the toe-tapping "In The Mood" ... the smooth saxes again in "I Know Why" ... the trombones as they 'oo-ah' their way impressively through "Tuxedo Junction" ... "Pennsylvanias 6-5000", a tribute to the old Pennsylvania Hotel in Manhattan, scene of some of Glenn's greatest successes ... the Miller classics "Chattanooga Choo Choo", "A String of Pearls", "American Patrol" ... the beautiful saxes in "At Last" ... and so, on to "Little Brown Jug".

A wonderful selection of music that somehow "gets you" as you listen to the special magic of Glenn Miller as, with his Orchestra, he plays to all of us over the years.

JOHN ROWLES

AUSTRALIA

An advertisement, dated 1986, taken from The Sun-Herald newspaper, New South Wales, Australia, promoting a concert of Pop singing artist John Rowles. The venue was the St. Georges League Club (in New South Wales, Australia).

John Edward Rowles OBE (born 26 March 1947, Whakatane, New Zealand) is a New Zealand singer. He was most popular in the 1970s and early 1980s, and most famous for his song Cheryl Moana Marie, which he had written about his kid sister back home in New Zealand. I personally loved John's Hit song If I Only Had Time (written by P Delanoe, Jack Fishman, Michel Fugain)

BUDDY GUY & JUNIOR WELLS

DATELINE : 1972 - THE AMERICAN BLUES FESTIVAL - BUDDY GUY & JUNIOR WELLS

The American Blues Festival was brought to Australia by promoter Kym Bonython. The concert festival featured two giants in the Blues music genre – Buddy Guy & Junior Wells (with their band). The US blues artist, Arthur ‘Big Boy’ Crudup, was going to be part of this concert series however, sadly, this did not happen (although I received an email from the general public, directed from my website, claiming that he was part of the tour). Supporting act was Australian artist Jeanie Lewis – a worthy choice indeed!

The following photos were taken by me with my small Kodak instamatic camera. The venue was the Dallas Brooks Hall, East Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on 6 December 1972.

[Buddy Guy is the one with the suit and guitar, and Junior Wells is the one in the white shirt & light checkered trousers & without a guitar]

WANDONG TRUCKS & COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL

AUSTRALIA

DATELINE : 1979 - WANDONG TRUCKS & COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL

Having been involved in co-presenting the radio program Saturday Morning Country Show for over 10 years I have taken a keen interest in knowing more about the country music scene in the Australia in the early years. I came across an early advertisement dated 1979 promoting a Country Music festival in Wandong. Wandong-Heathcote Junction is a small township with a population of about 1,500. It is located on the Hume Freeway less than one hour from Melbourne, situated on the Great Dividing Range and adjacent to the Mount Disappointment State Forest. Formally the township was part of one of Victoria's oldest inland shires, the Shire of Kilmore. The township is now located in the Shire of Mitchell.

The advertisement details many names of country music artists, many of whom sadly no longer perform, (or are not alive today)...... Tex Morton, Kevin King, Bob Purtell, Johnny Chester, Hawking Brothers, Roadapple, Dave Pincomb, Hotspur, Jean Stafford & Silverwater, Eureka Smith, Homestead, Gunslinger, Les Partell, Chad Morgan, Singing Kettles, Rg Poole, Indian Pacific, Denva, Kevin Shegog, Lee Conway, Cobbers, Lenore Somerset, Cash Backman, Col James, Ron & Hazel, Col Millington, Harry Williams, Country Limited, Leon Lowes, Maggie Stewart, 1901, Gene Fisk.

FRANKIE VAUGHAN

DATELINE : 1968 - FRANKIE VAUGHAN

Frankie Vaughan (3 Feb 1928 - 19 Sept 1999) was a British pop music artist. He released 80 recordings during his lifetime career. From one of major hits he was known as "Mr. Moonlight". You can find out much more about his life and career by going to this website : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankie_Vaughan

The small article was published in the British magazine Woman, dated 13 November 1968.

'Pop Success : Any Chance For Amateurs?'

"One question I never need ask anyone is : 'What do you do?' I already know! Everybody in this country either writes songs or sings 'em!" And they shower the amiable entertainer above - he's starring in Woman's super Palladium Songbook this week - with tapes, "demo" discs, paper scrawls to prove it. So no one could answer our headline with deeper feeling than Frankie Vaughan.

"Do amateurs stand a chance of pop success?" he pondered. "Yes: after all, many stars began that way. But I would never encourage anyone into showbiz now unless he or she had outstanding talent and realized it's Slog that makes stars. Out of thousands of amateur efforts sent to me, very few have had a thing to offer, and none has taken the trouble to aim at a professional polish."

Still feel you know pop promises worth proving? Best aid we can offer are two newsheets, Song Writing For Amateurs and Pop Singing, both free for a s.a.e. They're full of professional tips, give useful addresses (but not the much-tried Mr. Vaughan's - he's earned a rest!).

BOOTS RANDOLPH

DATELINE : 1968 - BOOTS RANDOLPH

The review, featured in Woman and Home, August 1968 [UK], states :

Boots Randolph with the Knightsbridge Strings and Voices (Monument SMO 5012, mono LMO 5012) features a saxophone player of note. Like all jazz virtuosos, Boots Randolph embellishes the melodies, in this case standard songs of today, with improvisations, and in the main this album is a dialogue between saxophone and - American fashions - a distant vocal group, with a commentary from the strings. This is easy listening, but it leads me to wish for some more sustained and wide-ranging contributions from this evidently gifted instrumentalist. ---- Shirley Shelton

NORMIE ROWE

AUSTRALIA

DATELINE : 1969 - NORMIE ROWE, POP MUSIC ARTIST

I was reading a very early edition of the pop music magazine Go-Set published in Australia. There was a feature on the Australian pop music idol of the late 60s, Normie Rowe. Normie's career and success was cut short when he was drafted for compulsory military service in late 1967. Rowe's subsequent tour of duty in Vietnam effectively ended his pop career. It has been said that he was never able to recapture the success he enjoyed at his peak however he is still a top performer in concert.

From Go-Set, dated 26 February 1969, a letter from Normie Rowe to his fans :

Hi to everyone in Go-Set land! Sorry to read about the Twilights breaking up, they were a great boost to the Australian scene. But good things can't last forever.

I have now been here in Vietnam just over five weeks, and time has gone by fairly quickly, so it won't be long before I'm on the great silver freedom bird - heading from Vietnam to Australia!

Do you realise it is now 12 months 19 days (by the time GoSet reaches the stands) since I joined the army? The trip is working out as a good thing for my career. I can now sit back and survey what's going on and form my impressions. I receive Go-Set every week and I don't think there is very much happening in Australia.

The one good thing the Yanks have done for this place is to put in a radio station (AFVN). It is quite a good station, but I do miss the familiar voices of Australian DJs. It would be great to wake up at 6 a.m. to the sound of Don Lunn, and do midnight Pickett listening to the Beddy-By Club!

I think the lack of entertainment for Australian troops is quite appalling! In fact, of the shows that come over here, only about 20% of the Australian troops get to see them, and most of them are in base!

I'm thinking of all of you back home - my fans - and if you get the time I wouldn't mind a letter-card sent to :

3793130, Tpr. Rowe, N.J., A Squadron, 3 Cav. Regiment, Australian FP04 c/o G.P.O. Sydney, N.S.W.

MARY HOPKIN

Mary Hopkin (born 3 May 1950), credited on some recordings as Mary Visconti, is a Welsh folk singer best known for her 1968 UK number one single "Those Were The Days". She was one of the first musicians to sign to The Beatles' Apple label.

I found this advertisment in the Australian Pop music magazine, Go-Set, dated 26 March 1969.
