Rotten Apple 74 - Updated
UPDATE: I believe the photo exhibition shown in RA 74 is the Paul Saltzman collection, The Beatles In India.
If the shoe fits...or NOT
While promoting "Memory Almost Full," Paul McCartney did an interview with one of the cutest girls on the planet. On "15 Big Ones" she cajoled him into making up a song on the spot with her.
Iamaphoney has taken this scrap of a tune and turned it into something quite enjoyable that would make a nice B-Side to any McCartney single. I think the production values are outstanding and that many would be fooled. Maybe that's the part of this thing that some people don't like. "Shoes" has been added to a site that someone not familiar with the Iamaphoney adventure would think is a legitimate Paul McCartney site.
Yes, that is a bit misleading. If Paul saw this, I don't know if he would get angry or ask Iamaphoney to produce his next album.
Rotten Apple 74 contains all of the elements that made me an Iamaphoney fan in the first place. It is interesting that the video contains some nasty language that we have heard before about Apple's lawyers. This time it accompanies what appears to be a photo exhibition of The Beatles trip to India. Interestingly, later this month there will be an exhibition of Beatles in India photos in Tel Aviv, Israel.
This video also gives us a brief, partially obscured, but clear picture of our friend with the accent.
Is he a photographer? Is this Iamaphoney and he going through pictures?
This was an interesting still from the video:
I would think that who enjoy the artistry of Iamaphoney would be quite happy with this effort. For those expecting a revelation, there will be lots of activity at your local churches this weekend.
