INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE SHOWS AND THE CELEBRATED RECORD:
• The image commissioned for the show was created by local photographer Kyle Weir from a concept created by cc. Each apple represents each individual Beatle and the colour that they desired the Apple to be for their THEN new record label, Apple Records. John wanted the Apple white, Paul wanted the Apple green, George wanted the Apple orange and Ringo wanted the Apple blue.
• I was commissioned by the Orillia Beatles' Celebration to put together a five piece band, The Kings of Marigold, that recreated the album from start to finish on September 22 of this year. Those amazing musicians that joined me were Chris Jamieson (bass), Steve Parton (guitar and vox), Barb Bloemhof (vox, percussion) and Mike Rittenhouse (drums). The nucleus of this amazing band will be the official backing band for the two shows.
•Did you know that if you add up the letters in the last name of each Beatle that the total letters equal the number of songs on a side of the lp?
Side One: 8 tracks: H-A-R-R-I-S-O-N
Side Two: 9 tracks: M-c-C-A-R-T-N-E-Y
Side Three: 7 tracks: S-T-A-R-K-E-Y (Ringo's real last name)
Side Four: 6 tracks: L-E-N-N-O-N
•During the making of this album, Ringo left the group for a short period of time. There are a few tracks that Ringo is NOT playing drums on. Can you name them?
•It is the first Beatles' album to contain the sound of female voices on BIRTHDAY as well as THE CONTINUING STORY OF BUNGALOW BILL and REVOLUTION # 9, featuring our Facebook friend, Ms. Yoko Ono :)
