    I'm cheating a bit as I'm not actually currently listening to this LP but a post by Merl in a different thread about "Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds" triggered a long lost memory which produced this post and so to Merl for providing the inspiration to write about an LP that I listened to once a very long time ago and never again since.

    untitled.jpg

    ""All This and World War II" is a 1976 musical documentary directed by Tony Palmer. It juxtaposes Beatles songs covered by a variety of musicians with World War II newsreel footage and 20th Century Fox films. The film was severely mauled by critics and lasted just two weeks in cinemas before being pulled.

    The film featured clips from the Nazi Germany army newsreels, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy, Milton Berle, Humphrey Bogart, Richard Burton, Neville Chamberlain, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Clark Gable, Adolf Hitler, Bob Hope, Joseph P. Kennedy, Laurel and Hardy, James Mason, Benito Mussolini, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin and James Stewart, among others.

    Critics savaged the movie with gusto, audiences stayed away, and Fox promptly yanked the film from release. The reviewer in the New York Daily News wrote that the film's PG rating had to have stood for "Positively Ghastly".

    The original intention of the filmmakers was to use actual Beatles music in the film. The decision to use other artists covering Beatles music was made by the film's producers after they realised additional money could be made through a soundtrack album. The decision was a sound one, as the soundtrack actually generated more revenue than the film.

    The album reached number 23 on the UK Albums Chart, with a total of seven weeks on that listing, and number 48 on the Billboard Top 200. It also made number 17 on the Dutch album charts and number 37 on the New Zealand album charts. Elton John’s rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", when previously released as a single in 1974, had been a US number one hit. Rod Stewart’s version of "Get Back" was subsequently released and became a UK hit single. Ambrosia’s cover version of "Magical Mystery Tour" was released and became a US hit single reaching No. 39 on the Billboard chart."

    Same here - saw them (and Big Country) every chance that I had and bought everything they ever released. I was just mesmerized by Stuart Adamson's playing - one of the all-time greats - a first-tier player.

    RIP - Stuart Adamson - December 16, 2001.

    My very favourite band. I didn’t discover them till after Jason Molina died and was devastated to realise I’d never see them.

    4. "A Day in the Life" - Barry Gibb and The Bee Gees

    5. "Get Back" - Billy Preston

    6. "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Finale)" - Full cast

    "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is a double album produced by George Martin, featuring covers of songs by the Beatles. It was released in July 1978, as the soundtrack to the film Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which starred the Bee Gees, Peter Frampton and Steve Martin.

    The release made history as being the first record to "return platinum", with over four million copies of it taken off store shelves and shipped back to distributors. Hundreds of thousands of copies of the album ended up being destroyed by RSO. The company itself experienced a considerable financial loss and the Bee Gees as a group had their musical reputation tarnished, though other involved bands such as Aerosmith were unscathed in terms of their popularity.

    In a contemporary review for The Village Voice, music critic Robert Christgau gave the album a D+ rating with an added "Must to Avoid" warning. He wrote that, apart from the Earth, Wind & Fire and Aerosmith songs, "most of the arrangements are lifted whole without benefit of vocal presence (maybe Maurice should try hormones) or rhythmic integrity ('Can't we get a little of that disco feel in there, George?')"

    Writing in The Rolling Stone Record Guide in 1983, Dave Marsh dismissed the soundtrack as "An utter travesty" and "Easily the worst album of any notoriety in this book." Marsh identified Aerosmith's "Come Together" and Earth, Wind & Fire's "Got to Get You into My Life" as the only competent renditions and concluded: "Two million people bought this album, which proves that P.T. Barnum was right and that euthanasia may have untapped possibilities."

    According to Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic, the album suffers from clumsy performances by the Bee Gees, Frankie Howerd and Peter Frampton, as well as performers who were poorly suited to their song, including Steve Martin, George Burns and Alice Cooper. Erlewine says that the soundtrack has become "a legend in its own right" due to its unenviable reputation and adds that, while it has attracted a cult following, "there's no erasing the fact that this is an absolutely atrocious record".

    Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band debuted at number 7 on the U.S. Billboard album chart and stayed at number 5 for six weeks. Although there was reported resistance to the interpretation of the Beatles' songs, such as Martin's comedic take on "Maxwell's Silver Hammer", Earth, Wind & Fire's version of "Got To Get You Into My Life" became a million selling single, while Robin Gibb's "Oh! Darling" and Aerosmith's "Come Together" both charted in the top 40."

    Full disclosure - I actually have this LP but in my defense it was given to me as a gift by an extraordinarily attractive woman (who went on to become and remain my wife) and to my everlasting credit I had the presence of mind and graciousness to hide my unmitigated horror and displayed a level of enthusiasm and delight to such an extent that I should have given serious thought to becoming a professional actor. And honestly... if she wasn't an extraordinarily attractive woman I would have handed it back with a rather brisk "Thanks, but no thanks"... At least I would like to think that I would have done so... but you never know...
