Some weird shit. The doll looks freaky.
It's referenced in Craig Brown's Beatles book, which is where I saw the photo. Very unsettling.
The album sleeve makes the doll look dark skinned but in pictures I found on the net it looks light skinned. It is well weird.

Also found some comic strips. I had never heard of it until today.

Seriously. Yet old coots who had that as a kid would look back nostalgically at their trauma.

We were in Chicago this past weekend and chanced upon a combo (guitar/drums) playing the electric blues on the corner of State and Randolph. They were playing "I'm Tore Down" by Freddie King. The sun was down, it was chilly (but not too chilly), and the sound echoed off the caverns of buildings. It was a perfect moment where music and location came together. I was a tad tipsy, but pulled the kids aside and told them that when the Rolling Stones were young, this is where they wanted to be because Chicago is the home of the electric blues.

...also fu*k Eric Clapton for making a career of stealing the music of African-Americans while being a shitty racist. They used to write Clapton is God back in the day. He's the freaking devil.

Dancing Queen aside, I reckon this song beats any ABBA track you can throw at it.

Pirating this album is fully morally justified. I don't even especially care about the contents, but felt obliged to snag a copy from SoulSeek.

Love love love it. Incredible vocal range, excellent backing vocals and a groove to die for.

"That's Me" by ABBA is still better though.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Yup. He's dead. Whoever made this decision did so purely with cash (and not Friday) on their mind.

"SOS" beats both of those.

Sort of. As they said, it was a copyright dump. I believe after 50 years, it’s a use it or lose it approach and the demos would become public domain. They do this low key release so the preserve the right to sell it in the future. So at least it’s out there now. Same thing happened with the lone Astral Weeks era bootleg from van Morrison in 69/19. It had never been heard before and just appeared on UK iTunes with shitty artwork for a day or two. To this day it hasn’t been formally released again with/without proper fanfare, but at least it’s out there.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Right—that's what I meant. Back when the first wave of Dylan boots emerged in the late 60s/early 70s, and Columbia lost its nut, Tom Hammond said that if a record company refuses to make available recordings that the public wants, it loses its moral claim to them. Which has been the guiding principle of bootleggers. Copyright dump moves are contrary to the idea of public cultural value.
