The Lonely Ones Debuts Video For ‘Flash Gordon’/’The Hero’ Cover

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Independent rock band The Lonely Ones debuted the video for its cover of a classic Queen song this week.

The band debuted the video for its cover of Queen’s performance of the Flash Gordon theme song and its companion song ‘Hero’ Tuesday.  The video features the band performing its take on the song in a studio setting, complete with sound effects and audio from the original movie.

The band’s take on the song pays full tribute to Queen’s version of the classic work.  The Lonely Ones’ rendition is longer than that of Queen, with the original clocking in at just under three minutes and the cover coming in at five-and-a-half-minutes.  Even with that in mind, the band’s cover is still very much in line with Queen’s original work.

The band talked about its take on the song in a collective statement.

“We recorded Flash in 2019 – a pretty dark year for the four of us on all fronts,” the statement reads. Our original musical output reflected that darkness, so recording a cartoonishly triumphant, heroic cover song seemed like a good counter-balance. Fast forward to spring 2020 and the impending COVID-19 Stay at Home order. With limited time and help from some fans we got our friends together to film a music video while we were still able. It’s July now and, with the future more unclear than ever, it seems like the perfect time to release the most positive song we have.  I hope you enjoy it. “Flash/The Hero. A Queen Cover.”

The Lonely Ones’ cover of Queen’s classic song comes more than a month ahead of Arrow Video’s upcoming re-issue of Starling Films/Famous Films/Dino De Laurentiis Company’s 1980 movie Flash Gordon.  It should be noted that the band’s premiere of its new cover is not connected with the movie’s forthcoming re-issue.  It is merely coincidence.

Arrow Video is scheduled to re-issue the science fiction flick Aug. 18 on 4KUHD/BD combo pack and standalone Blu-ray.

The forthcoming re-issue will feature a companion booklet with new liner notes on the movie penned by a variety of film critics and historians; separate feature length audio commentaries by Mike Hodges and Brian Blessed; cast interviews; a behind-the-scenes making of featurette; archival interview with Mike Hodges, screenwriter Lorenzo Semple Jr. and comic book artist Alex Ross as well as much more.

World-renowned entertainers Raffi and Yo-Yo Ma have partnered to present a new take of Raffi’s timeless song ‘Baby Beluga‘ to celebrate the song’s 40th anniversary.

Originally premiered in 1980, the new updated performance features the legendary musicians performing the song in their homes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Where the original song was mainly a focus on environmentalism, this updated take featured Raffi adding a focus on social justice, peace and diversity.

The video of the performance is streaming through Raffi’s official YouTube Channel.  The song will be available to download by itself later this month.  Proceeds from sales of the single will benefit the grassroots organization The Climate Mobilization.  The agency works daily to address climate change on a global level.

In related news, Raffi has launched a contest for audiences of all ages to submit their own drawings for his upcoming video for the new ‘Baby Beluga’ update.  Audiences can submit sketches of Beluga whales or anything that inspires them for possible inclusion in the video.  Fans can submit their artwork here.

In other news, Raffi has opened his first official store.  The store offers audiences, a variety of ‘Baby Beluga’ bundles.  One of the bundles features the Baby Beluga book — from Knopf/Random House Children’s Books — which was recently re-issued with updated cover, along with two other books, Wheels on the Bus and Down By The Bay.

A Baby Beluga board game is also available through the store.  The game teaches social-emotional learning for young players.  Raffi’s albums are also available through the store.

INXS’ ‘Live Baby Live’ Re-Issue Builds On the Success Of Its Original Success

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment/ Petrol

Twenty-nine years ago  this month, pop rock band INXS released its first-ever live recording Live Baby Live.  The recording, captured July 31, 1991 at London’s famed Wembley Stadium, a venue that at that point, had also hosted the likes of Queen, Michael Jackson and U2.  So for INXS to take the stage at the legendary venue meant also putting the band in very good company, considering the venue’s reputation as one of the world’s “elite” live venues.  When the recording was originally released, it was a hit, reaching No. 3 on the Aria (Australian Recording Industry Association) Charts and No. 8 on the UK Albums Chart.  The recording’s charting positions showed its popularity even with critics on both sides of the Atlantic and in the band’s home nation of Australia panning the presentation.  Now almost 30 years later, the recording has been re-issued through Eagle Rock Entertainment for a whole new generation of audiences along with the band’s established fan base.  Specifically speaking, it was released June 26 on Blu-ray/4K-HD, DVD and other formats.  The concert’s set list makes for its own share of interest for audiences.  It will be discussed shortly.  The band’s performance of said set list adds to that interest.  It will be discussed a little later.  The companion booklet featured with the recording’s new re-issue rounds out its most important elements.  Each noted item is important in its own way to the whole of the recording’s presentation.  All things considered, they make Eagle Rock Entertainment’s Live Baby Live a presentation that will Keep INXS’ legacy a-LIVE.  Yes, that awful pun was intended.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s recent re-issue of INXS’ debut live recording Live Baby Live (The first “Live” is pronounced like it rhyme with the word “give.”  The second rhymes with the word “hive.”) is an interesting presentation from the legendary pop rock band.  That is due in part to the recording’s 19-song set list.  The set list pulls largely from the band’s hit 1987 album Kick and that record’s follow-up, 1990’s XThe Swing (1984) gets a couple of nods.  The band even presents its hit single ‘Devil Inside’ to close out the show, but by and large, the two noted albums – Kick and X – get the most attention in this concert.  Eight of the 12 songs featured in Kick’s original presentation are featured in this set list.  Eight of the songs from X’s 11 total songs are also featured here.  Needless to say the set list is not a career-defining presentation from the band even at that point.  Why the band opted to focus on the two noted albums is anyone’s guess.  Considering that the band was touring in support of X at the time, the emphasis on that album is understandable.  Add in that at the time of X’s release, three years had passed between its release and that of Kick and the emphasis makes more sense, especially considering the extended story behind the release of Kick, which involved two record labels.  That story will be left for audiences to learn for themselves.  Even with the limited focus of the concert’s set list, the band keeps the energy flowing from one song to the next throughout the show.  The concert’s energy falls all of maybe twice total.  In other words, the concert’s energy will keep audiences engaged and entertained thanks to the set list.  What’s more, the songs featured in the set list features arrangements that bear a distinct similarity to works from INXS’ British counterparts, The Rolling Stones.  This is worth its own future discussion, as the stylistic similarities between the band’s songs were intended.  Keeping all of this in mind, the set list featured in Live Baby Live does its own share to entertain and engage audiences, even with its limitations kept in mind.

While the set list featured in Live Baby Live has some limitations what with its set list, the songs themselves will keep audiences entertained and engaged.  On a related note, the band’s performance thereof builds on the presentation’s appeal.  One of the most notable aspects of the band’s performance is that of front man Michael Hutchence.  Hutchence struts around the stage with the same swagger of The Rolling Stones’ front man Mick Jagger, even sounding at times like Jagger in his vocal delivery.  Drummer Jon Fariss’ time keeping is solid throughout each song, his energy never letting up at any point.  Kirk Pengilly (sax, guitars) adds his own unique touch to each song with his own performances.  His saxophone solos oozes the sound of so much music from the 90s, which adds even more to each song’s appeal.  He, Hutchence and the rest of the band members’ performances feed the audience’s energy.  That energy is in turn reciprocated, giving the band even more of its own energy, enhancing the experience even more.  That engaging and entertaining performance by the band couples with the concert’s set list to give audiences even more reason to experience this concert whether for the first time or the first time in a long time.  Those elements are not the only notable aspects of Live Baby Live, either.  The companion booklet that comes with the recording rounds out its most important elements.

The companion booklet that accompanies Eagle Rock Entertainment’s new re-issue of Live Baby Live is important to note because of the background that it offers audiences before they even experience the concert.  it should be noted that all of the background offered through the booklet is itself newly collected by fa Jamie East, who was at the band’s 1991 concert.  The booklet opens with an introspective recollection on the concert by then guitarist/keyboardist Andrew Fariss.  He writes about the honor of performing at Wemblem as a headliner even though the band had previously played there as an opener for Queen.  Additionally, Fariss offers a funny anecdote about locking himself in a bathroom in order to mentally prepare for the band’s 1991 headliner show.  That in itself will put a smile on audiences’ faces.  Fariss’ band mate Garry Gary Beers expands on those comments, offering his own praise for Hutchence while also discussing the band members’ excitement at headlining Wembley.  As the discussions continue, Jon Fariss gives thanks to the audience for taking part in the concert, noting, “We could not only see the mesmerizing vibe from the audience right in front of us – but the electricity and energy radiating from the audience was insanely unforgettable…I humbly thank and salute all our audience who were there at this Wembley show and for every other 3 thousand plus INXS shows we performed – I thank each and every one of you.”  Hutchence and Gilly also share their own thoughts (Hutchence thoughts were obviously recorded prior to his untimely passing in 1997) in the booklet, enriching the experience even more.  Considering their comments and the whole of the comments from the other noted band members, the booklet helps to paint a rich, vivid picture of Live Baby Live before audiences even experience the concert.  That enriches the recording’s presentation even more.  Considered with the recording’s set list and the band’s performance, all three elements join to make this concert a memorable presentation from INXS that audiences of all ages will appreciate.  Live Baby Live is available now on a variety of platforms.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s recent re-issue of INXS’ live recording Live Baby Live is an interesting updated presentation of the recording. that is due in part to the recording’s set list.  While limited in its overall picture of the band’s catalog it still offers its own share of entertainment for audiences.  The band’s performance of said set list makes the recording even more worth experiencing.  The companion booklet, which features newly culled notes from the band members about the concert, adds yet another layer to the recording’s presentation.  All the items noted here are important in their own way to the whole of Live Baby Live.  All things considered, they make Live Baby Live well worth the experience.

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

With the premiere of the new Ella Fitzgerald documentary It’s Just One Of Those Things here, it will be celebrated this weekend with a special followup event Sunday.

Author and producer Reggie Nadelson, who conducted all of the documentary’s interviews, will join Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Margo Jefferson, famed music critic Will Friedwald and singer/saxophonist Camille Thurman for a free presentation discussion on the documentary Sunday.

The round table discussion is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. EDT Sunday.  While the event is free, tickets are still required to view.  They are available here.

Originally set to premiere April 3, the global COVID-19 outbreak caused that premiere to be delayed until June 26.

Audiences can view the documentary by purchasing tickets through their local theaters here.  Audiences can watch the documentary from home through various resources, such as apps for Apple TV, Roku and AndroidTV.

Award-winning director Leslie Woodhead helmed the project, and Reggie Nadelson produced the presentation.

Just One Of Those Things follows Fitzgerald on and off the stage, showing how she used her musical talents and her intelligence to break down barriers and overcome great odds throughout the course of her life.  It features never-before-seen footage of interviews with Smokey Robinson, Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, Norma Miller and Ray Brown Jr., Ella’s son. along with many other famous figures.

Fitzgerald lost her mother when she [Fitzgerald] was 15 years old.  From there, she also endured mistreatment in reform schools.  in 1934, her life took a turn that would set her on the path of success from then on, winning a contest at the famed Apollo Theater.  She would eventually go on to work with jazz greats, such as Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman.

While she had great success on stage, Fitzgerald was very different off-stage, wanting privacy for herself and her family.  Audiences will see that dichotomy throughout the course of this new documentary.

Fitzgerald earned a number of accolades during the course of her career. Among those honors were 13 Grammy awards, record sales exceeding 40 million records and an NAACP Equal Justice Award. She also received the American Black Achievement Award.

Eagle Rock Entertainment recently debuted two separate trailers for the documentary.  The first, streaming here, features clips of Fitzgerald performing with Duke Ellington and his orchestra, new interview footage with the likes of Tony Bennett and Jamie Cullum. The 90-second trailer also features vintage photos of Fitzgerald from early in her career and even footage of interviews that Fitzgerald herself conducted on television.

The other trailer, streaming here,  features discussions on Fitzgerald’s time on the road with Chick Webb and his orchestra.

Dee Snider Debuts ‘I Am The Hurricane’ Live Clip

Courtesy: Napalm Records

Dee Snider is giving audiences another preview of his forthcoming live recording For The Love of Metal Live.

Snider debuted a live clip of he and his band mates performing the song ‘I Am The Hurricane‘ Wednesday.  The clip’s debut comes less than a month after the band debuted the lyric video for Snider’s new single ‘Prove Me Wrong.’

Snider discussed that lyrical content in a recent interview.

“‘Prove Me Wrong’ are words that I’ve thought in my head since the day I began rocking,” he said.  “I had a monster chip on my shoulder and dared the world to knock it off… nobody ever could. At this point in my career I thought I’d let everybody in on what has kept be going all these many years. Prove me wrong!”

The defiant message in that song is similar to that of ‘I Am The Hurricane,’ according to a statement from Snider in another recent interview.

“If there is ever a repeated message in my songs it’s this: Stand up, fight back, don’t take any sh*t from anybody, and f*ck anybody who gets in your way or tries to put you down,” he said.  “It’s a message that constantly needs to be reinforced in us all, myself included. “I Am the Hurricane” is that reinforcement!”

‘I Am The Hurricane’ and ‘Prove Me Wrong’ are both featured in Snider’s new live recording in each of its platforms.  Those platforms are noted below as well as the track listing for each platform.

 

For The Love Of Metal Live will be available in the following formats:

Fitzgerald earned a number of accolades during the course of her career. Among those honors were 13 Grammy awards, record sales exceeding 40 million records and an NAACP Equal Justice Award. She also received the American Black Achievement Award.

Eagle Rock Entertainment recently debuted two separate trailers for the documentary.  The first, streaming here, features clips of Fitzgerald performing with Duke Ellington and his orchestra, new interview footage with the likes of Tony Bennett and Jamie Cullum. The 90-second trailer also features vintage photos of Fitzgerald from early in her career and even footage of interviews that Fitzgerald herself conducted on television.

The other trailer, streaming here,  features discussions on Fitzgerald’s time on the road with Chick Webb and his orchestra.
