The Beatles, Rubber Soul

In 1965, The Beatles recorded their sixth album, Rubber Soul. The Beatles were still touring, still rushing into the studio to record fresh songs at a frantic pace. But “Rubber Soul” took the group in a new direction. Rubber Soul was recorded 56 years old. “Rubber Soul” was a pivot point between `She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah,’ to Revolver to Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

   • Rubber Soul: 3 December 1965 . . .
   • Revolver: 5 August 1966 . . .
   • Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band: 1 June 1967

The songs demonstrate the Beatles’ increasing maturity as lyricists and, in their incorporation of brighter guitar tones and new instrumentation such as harmonium, sitar and fuzz bass, the group striving for more expressive sounds and arrangements for their music.

Rubber Soul inspired tons of artists – including Brian Wilson, who crafted the Beach Boys’ ‘Pet Sounds’ in reply; the Beatles, in turn, responded with ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’.

The album consisted of eleven songs by John and Paul, two by George and another with the unique writing credit of Lennon-McCartney-Starkey. The inclusion of a sitar on the song Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) also illustrated George’s growing interest in Indian music and culture.

White Album by The Beatles, 53rd-anniversary.

The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album and only double album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 22 November 1968. Its plain white sleeve contains no graphics or text other than the band’s name embossed,[a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band’s previous LP Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Beatles is recognised for its fragmentary style and diverse range of genres, including folk, British blues, ska, music hall and the avant-garde. It has since been viewed by some critics as a postmodern work, as well as among the greatest albums of all time.

Most of the songs on the album were written during March and April 1968 at a Transcendental Meditation course in Rishikesh, India. There, the only western instrument available to the band was the acoustic guitar; several of these songs remained acoustic on The Beatles and were recorded solo, or only by part of the group. The production aesthetic ensured that the album’s sound was scaled-down and less reliant on studio innovation than most of their releases since Revolver (1966). The Beatles also broke with the band’s tradition at the time of incorporating several musical styles in one song by keeping each piece of music consistently faithful to a select genre.

At the end of May 1968, the Beatles returned to EMI Studios in London to commence recording sessions that lasted until mid-October. During these sessions, arguments broke out among the foursome over creative differences and John Lennon’s new partner, Yoko Ono, whose constant presence subverted the Beatles’ policy of excluding wives and girlfriends from the studio. After a series of various problems, including producer George Martin taking an unannounced holiday and engineer Geoff Emerick suddenly quitting during a session, Ringo Starr left the band for two weeks in August. The same tensions continued throughout the following year and led to the band’s break-up.

The Beatles received favourable reviews from most music critics; detractors found its satirical songs unimportant and apolitical amid the turbulent political and social climate of 1968. It topped record charts in Britain and the United States. No singles were issued in either territory, but “Hey Jude” and “Revolution” originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. The album has been certified 24× platinum by the RIAA.

The Beatles White Album Factoids by Morgan Rees:

Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane celebrates 82nd birthday

Grace Barnett Slick (born October 30, 1939) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, artist, and former model, widely known in rock and roll history for her role in San Francisco’s burgeoning psychedelic music scene in the mid-1960s. Her music career spanned four decades. She performed with The Great Society, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Starship. She also had a sporadic solo career. Slick provided vocals on a number of iconic songs, including “Somebody to Love”, “White Rabbit”, “We Built This City”, and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”.

After retiring from music, Slick began painting and drawing. She has done many renditions of her fellow 1960s musicians, such as Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, and others.

Slick has been married twice—to Gerald “Jerry” Slick, a cinematographer, from 1961 to 1971, then to Skip Johnson, a Jefferson Starship lighting designer, from 1976 to 1994. She has one child—a daughter, China Wing Kantner (born January 25, 1971). China’s father is the former Jefferson Airplane guitarist Paul Kantner, with whom Slick had a relationship from 1969 to 1975.

From 1958-1959, Grace Wing (Slick) was a student at The University of Miami.

One Year Anniversary of Erika James, being the first woman appointed dean of the Wharton School

Meet Erika James, the first woman to be appointed dean of the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania.

Black woman begins history-making job as dean of prestigious school.

Erika H. James became the dean of the Wharton School on July 1, 2020. Trained as an organizational psychologist, Dean James is a leading expert on crisis leadership, workplace diversity and management strategy.

Prior to her appointment at Wharton, Dean James was the John H. Harland Dean at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School from 2014 to 2020.

An award-winning educator, accomplished consultant and researcher, she is the first woman and first person of color to be appointed dean in Wharton’s 139-year history. As such she has paved the way for women in leadership both in education and corporate America. Dean James has been instrumental in developing groundbreaking executive education programs, including the Women’s Leadership program at the University of Virginia’s Darden School.

The World’s First Business School

For more than 136 years, Wharton has been the place where visionaries, inventors, and trailblazers get their start.

In 1881, American entrepreneur and industrialist Joseph Wharton established the world’s first collegiate school of business at the University of Pennsylvania — a radical idea that revolutionized both business practice and higher education.

Since then, the Wharton School has continued innovating to meet mounting global demand for new ideas, deeper insights, and  transformative leadership. We blaze trails, from the nation’s first collegiate center for entrepreneurship in 1973 to our latest research centers in alternative investments and neuroscience.

Loma Prieta earthquake 32 years since the deadly earthquake.

Loma Prieta earthquake 32 years since the deadly earthquake.

15-seconds that transformed SF.

A San Francisco Bay area earthquake measuring 7.1 in magnitude, killed 67 and injured over 3,000. Over 100,000 buildings damaged or destroyed. (Oct. 17, 1989) 

I remember this day as if it were yesterday. I was talking to my wife (she was at home about 5-miles away) and during our conversation she yelled out, “Earthquake!” I replied, “Not over here”, then a minute later my work building started bouncing and the ceiling came down. From the second floor of my building, I jumped down the stairway and I ran out the front door. When everything settled down since I was management I put on a helmet and reentered the building looking for anyone trapped in the building. 

On my drive home over the Dumbarton Bridge, (Menlo Park to Newark/Fremont, California) I saw three KGO radio antenna towers laying in the Bay. What an eerie feeling. 

Damage:

Five people were killed on Sixth Street between Bluxome and Townsend in San Francisco as a brick facade collapsed onto the sidewalk and street.

Major property damage in San Francisco’s Marina District 60 mi (97 km) from the epicenter resulted from liquefaction of soil used to create waterfront land. Other effects included sand volcanoes, landslides and ground ruptures. Some 12,000 homes and 2,600 businesses were damaged.

In Santa Cruz, close to the epicenter, 40 buildings collapsed, killing six people. 

An estimated 1.4 million people lost power following the quake, mainly due to damaged electrical substations.

Power was restored to most of San Francisco by midnight, and all but 12,000 customers had their power restored within two days.

The quake caused an estimated $6 billion (equivalent to $13 billion today) in property damage, becoming one of the most expensive natural disasters in U.S. history at the time.

Fall Freekeh Salad recipes.

Here is a choice of two different Fall Freekeh Salad recipes.

Say hello to your must-try fall lunch – Fall Harvest Freekeh Salad! If you’re brand new to the world of freekeh, this salad is an easy and delicious way to get your feet wet. And if freekeh is already a regular part of your diet, then this is a recipe you’ll definitely want to add to your stash!

This Fall Harvest Freekeh Salad is a culmination of all of my favorite salad-y things in one bowl. It’s part dark leafy green salad and part wholegrain salad, plus it’s full of fun, seasonal goodies that I love, like crisp apples and roasted butternut squash.

The base of the salad is a mix of shredded kale and cooked wholegrain freekeh, which has a similar texture and mouthfeel to wheat berries. They’re firm, yet chewy, with an earthy, nutty taste.

Whisk together apple cider vinegar, honey, olive oil, mustard powder and tarragon in medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mix together celery, golden raisins, currants, scallions, red onion, almonds and sunflower seeds in large bowl. Add dressing and freekeh to large bowl, and toss until combined.

1 cup freekeh.

12 ounces Brussels sprouts, quartered.

1 1/2 cups grapes.

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil.

ESTEE LAUDER: Founded by a Woman for Women
 
The Estée Story
 
“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” —Estée Lauder
 
Estée Lauder, the founder of the company that bears her name, was a visionary and a role model. She was a challenger who proved that anything was possible — if you dared to dream it and had the guts and gumption to go for it. Ahead of her time in every way, she created and ran one of the world’s most prestigious and innovative companies while serving as a wife, mother and a loyal friend to many. And she did it all with charm, humor and exquisite style. She loved beauty with a passion and believed wholeheartedly in its power.
 
Knowing What Women Want
 
Estée had innate instincts for what women wanted and was the consummate saleswoman and marketer. She believed that to make a sale, you had to touch the consumer, show her the results on her face and explain the products. That was the start of the Company’s personal High-Touch service.
 
She revolutionized how products were introduced with her now-famous “Gift With Purchase” — later copied by other cosmetic companies and currently a standard industry practice.

Women’s Equality Day – August 26

In a perfect world, Women’s Equality Day wouldn’t even be a thing. On August 26, 1920 women in America were first legally given the right to vote. Fifty years later,  Congress commemorated the day by designating August 26th as Women’s Equality Day.

The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Workplaces, libraries, organizations, and public facilities now participate with Women’s Equality Day programs, displays, video showings, or other activities.

Joint Resolution of Congress, 1971

Designating August 26 of each year as Women’s Equality Day

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have been treated as second-class citizens and have not been entitled the full rights and privileges, public or private, legal or institutional, which are available to male citizens of the United States; and

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have united to assure that these rights and privileges are available to all citizens equally regardless of sex; and

WHEREAS, the women of the United States have designated August 26, the anniversary date of the certification of the Nineteenth Amendment, as symbol of the continued fight for equal rights: and

WHEREAS, the women of United States are to be commended and supported in their organizations and activities,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that August 26th of each year is designated as Women’s Equality Day, and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation annually in commemoration of that day in 1920, on which the women of America were first given the right to vote, and that day in 1970, on which a nationwide demonstration for women’s rights took place.

Rock ‘n’ Roll History on August 26: Jimi Hendrix * The Beatles * Donna Summer * Don Henley

Rock ‘n’ Roll History on August 26: Jimi Hendrix * The Beatles * Donna Summer * Don Henley 

1967

August 26, 1967

Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” is released, 54 years ago. Although it is now considered a Rock ‘n’ Roll classic, the single only reached #65 on the Billboard chart. 

The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s bassist, Noel Redding, died at his home in Ireland of unknown causes on May 11, 2003, at the age of 57. Drummer Mitch Mitchell was found dead in a Portland, Ore. hotel room on November 12, 2008. He was 62.

1968

August 26 

Apple Corps releases five single records, including The Beatles’ “Hey Jude” backed by “Revolution” 52-years ago. It will become the band’s biggest hit.  

1976 

August 26 

Donna Summer groans and sighs her way through her erotic Disco hit “Love To Love You Baby” on American Bandstand. Even though the song reached #2 in America, Donna later admitted that she was not completely sure of some of the lyrics, and parts of the song were improvised during the recording. 

1989

August 26 

Ringo Starr wins a court order to prevent a record producer from releasing material Starr considered to be of inferior quality due to the impaired state Starr was in when it was recorded. 

August 26

1966 

August 27 

The Association’s “Cherish” is released in the US, where it will reach #1 a month later. Although the song is actually longer, the label showed the running time to be exactly three minutes, to keep radio programmers from dismissing the record as too long

National Dog Day – August 26th

National Dog Day – August 26th

Over 15,000 years ago, a lone hunter came across an injured wolf and aided the animal by nursing him back to health.

Or so the theory goes. One thing is for sure, that when early humans domesticated wolves they formed a friendship that has endured the test of time.

National Dog Day is celebrated August 26th annually and was founded in 2004 to bring attention to the plight of animals around the globe and encourage adoption.

National Dog Day celebrates all dogs, mixed breed and pure. Our mission is to help galvanize the public to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledges family dogs and dogs that work selflessly each day to save lives, keep us safe and bring comfort. Dogs put their lives on the line every day…for personal protection, for law enforcement, for the disabled, for our freedom and safety by detecting bombs and drugs and pulling victims of tragedy from wreckage, now they’re detecting cancer and seizures…things even humans cannot do.

Rare ‘backwards’ Beatles Abbey Road photograph

Rare ‘backwards’ Beatles Abbey Road photograph that dispels 52 years of conspiracy theories sold for £20,000

  • Photo shows Paul McCartney wearing sandals – proving he didn’t ‘die’
  • Hidden for 10 years, it’s one of 25 prints in existence
  • Sold to an anonymous bidder for twice the estimated auction price

All four Beatles gathered at EMI Studios on the morning of Friday 8 August 1969 for one of the most famous photo shoots of their career. Photographer Iain Macmillan took the iconic image that adorned their last-recorded album, Abbey Road.

The photo on the album cover was in fact just one of ten taken during the same 1969 shoot by photographer Iain Macmillan. Iain Macmillan, who died in 2006, was chosen for the shoot in North London because he was friends with Yoko Ono.

It was staged in the 8th of August 1969 and featured John Lennon leading the band over the zebra crossing next to the Abbey Road studios.

The photo shows the band walking in the ‘wrong’ direction across the famous Abbey Road zebra crossing – and more importantly shows McCartney wearing a pair of white leather sandals.

The photo on the album cover was in fact just one of ten taken during the same 1969 shoot by photographer Iain Macmillan

For decades fans of the Fab Four have suggested the singer was killed in a car crash and replaced with a lookalike – pointing to his barefoot appearance on the Abbey Road album cover as proof.

53 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.

‘53 YEARS AGO: THE BEATLES ‘YELLOW SUBMARINE’ WAS RELEASED.
Yellow Submarine was primarily the brainchild of George Dunning and Al Broadax — the same duo that spearheaded the Beatles cartoon TV series that aired in the U.S. from 1965-69 — along with art director Heinz Edelmann and Lee Minoff, who wrote the story. But the Beatles wanted as little involvement as possible, so actors were brought in to recreate their voices.
The Simpsons Wouldn’t Exist Without Yellow Submarine.
The movie would fundamentally changed the way viewers experience animation. This year, Yellow Submarine celebrates its 53rd anniversary. In the half century since its release, animation has evolved beyond what could have imagined in the ’60s.
RE-RELEASE
The Beatles’ animated feature film, “Yellow Submarine,” will be re-released in North America in July in celebration of its 53rd anniversary
