But Frith didn't have a bunch of tapes to compare to, so he didn't know that 'Midnight Hour' or 'Dancing' would improve drastically the following year, or how much worse they'd sounded in early ' He does compare them a little to other groups, though not very specifically.
I don't Pigpen trying to sing blues; it don't sound like blues. It sounds like some white kid trying to sing blues. It drags me; they're not funky. They don't have a good beat It's not even like the Stones. But aside from what he thought of the music, he also uses the review to analyze just what made the Dead special. He's clearly a Dead fan - he mentions their "magic" and "glory" and recommends the Live Dead album. His thoughts here are interesting, on the social framework of their playing and how "their music achieved the dream.
Given that just a couple archival albums were enough to send him on a rant about mercenary record companies releasing "buried treasures, long forgotten tapes," I wonder what he'd make of the dozens of Dead live albums available today! And as a sidenote: though Frith mentions that this was recorded "at a time when the trust was still being established" within the band, before the Dead had the individual freedom to explore new paths in the music, he does single out Garcia as being a virtuoso even at the time, and implies that the rest of the band was just backing him.
But the Dead did not go down the route of Album) plus backing," instead melding into a group expression - Frith says that "if Jerry Garcia had been in a different sort of group," he would have been considered a top guitarist for years now.
McCartney was actually the uncredited director of the entire sequence, in which he is clearly seen been handed a huge bouquet of red flowers, whilst sporting the discordant black flower on his lapel.
It could not therefore be a shortage of props as he claimed, only a deliberate choice. But the sprawling double album features several more instances of backwards vocals. Revolution 9, much mocked as the most skipped song in music history, and perhaps the only track played more often backwards than forwards, seemed to be the rosetta stone of Paul is Dead mythology. As was becoming customary, Paul is again depicted different to the other Beatles, being the only one of the four walking across the road barefoot.
Was this, as many suggested, a reference to the traditional practice in many cultures of burying the dead barefoot and another hint from the band that Paul was in fact dead? Could this be another hint from the band about Paul, the Beatle who died in a car crash and would have been in his 28th year if he had lived?
To complete the theme of death, Macmillan frames the men in way that resembles a funeral procession, with Ringo even dressed uncannily like an undertaker for added measure.
Whilst John, George and Ringo are all looking leftwards on a white background, Paul is staring directly at the viewer, framed by a red backdrop. Is this yet another reference to the bloody demise of the original McCartney in ? Many Beatles fans love to play armchair detective about all of this, without ever really believing it. If Paul had been killed in an accident could they have replaced him with someone who not only looked just like him but had the same musical talent?
Was there such a man waiting in the Wings, ready to take over and pass himself off as the real Paul? In the early 60s, it was common for session musicians to exploit popular acts by quickly recording cover versions of their songs and releasing them in the guise of fake bands. The Beatles, with their massive international success, suffered Paul Is Dead - Retro Stefson - Montaña (CD this more than anyone. One such fake band, the intriguingly named Billy and the Pepperpots, released a couple of Merseymania albums inthree years before Sgt Pepper.
The albums were a mix of Beatles Album) and Beatles-esque original songs. The author of these original songs? One Bill Shepherd. Although now chiefly associated with the internet, the phenomenon of fake news and celebrity death hoaxes is by no means new, with classic era stars as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, Frank Sinatra and Doris Day subject to unfounded reports of their death at one time or another.
Inthe year the first Paul is Dead whispers emerged, his contemporary Bob Dylan was at the centre of a very similar story that he had died in an horrific motorbike crash and replaced with a imposter less critical of US involvement in Vietnam.
The origins of many of these rumours are obscure, if not a mix of garbled misreporting and chinese whispers then perhaps somebody's idea of a joke. And in almost all cases they quickly fizzled out after it became apparent the star in question was indeed alive and well.
What sets Paul is Dead apart is how enduring it has proven to be, even today subject of hundreds of youtube videos and internet articles, many of them produced by people who weren't even born when the speculation first spread like wildfire through college campuses in Crucially, it also differs from most of the earlier rumours by having a very clear provenance. We can trace most of the Paul is Dead stories back to their source, and by doing see an obvious urban legend being constructed.
The canonical version of the story, that during the recording of Sgt Pepper in late Paul McCartney died in a car crash and was replaced by a look-alike, was largely made up by a 21 year-old student journalist at Michigan University called Fred LaBour.
LaBour had been amused by talk on local radio about supposed backward messages hidden on the Beatles records and decided, as a creative exercise, to run with the idea and spin out the whole incredible tale.
Little did he know what he had intended to be a joke would become one of the greatest conspiracy fables of all time. Outside of the writer's imagination, it isn't. The young writer was astonished when his little spoof quickly exploded out of Album) confines of his student paper and started being covered as a serious story by national media giants like Time and Life.
LaBour had inadvertently created a monster, which was now trampling its way around the global press. Lee Bailey, but by this point he had become somewhat daunted by how his joke had seemingly taken on a life of its own. All four of the Beatles repeatedly rubbished any idea that had put these secret references in their albums, putting it down to the overactive imagination of their fans.
Lennon, whose lyrics are central to many of the Paul is Dead theories, admitted on many occasions he was simply making it all up. John is also on the record as saying his Sgt Pepper track Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds had nothing to do with LSD, despite its initials spelling out the word and its content sounding decidedly influenced by the drug.
