Hour One

1.   The Four Four Preps: A Letter To The Beatles (Ivan Ulz, Glen A Larson, Bruce Bellard)
45 single bw College Cannonball: Capitol Records 5143
Hollywood CA
Bruce Belland, lead vocals
Ed Cobb, bass
Marv Ingram, high tenor
Glen Larson, baritone
Ray Pohlman: arranger and conductor
Produced by Stu Phillips, 1964

This song was recorded on February 10, 1964, the day after The Beatles made their US debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was released a few weeks later in March.

The Four Preps got together in 1956, signed to Capitol Records and released their first single, Johnny Tillotson’s Dreamy Eyes. They were invited to work on the Ozzie and Harriet TV show, backing up Ricky Nelson for four years. Although they wrote a lot of their own material, it was their parody songs that had the biggest punch. One of these was "A Letter to the Beatles" which used some lyrics and melody of  “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and rose to number 85 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was soon deleted however by Capitol after the publisher of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" refused to give permission for the parody version. But it was one of many songs about the Beatles that came out that year (1964). There is speculation that Brian Epstein wasn’t too pleased with the song’s message which was essentially anti-Beatles.

2.   The Flaming Groovies: Please Please Me (Lennon / McCartney)
Jumpin’ In The Night: Sire Records SRK 6067
San Francisco CA
Cyril Jordan - guitar, vocals
Chris Wilson - guitar, vocals
Mike Wilhelm - guitar
George Alexander - bass
David Wright - drums
Produced by Cyril Jordan and Roger Bechirian, 1979
Recorded by Roger Becheirian at Eden Studios and Advision Studios, London

Recorded by The Beatles Nov 26, 1962

The Groovies began in 1965 by school friends and went from playing Kingston Trio songs to a Rolling Stones style band. They were signed to Epic Records in 1969 and got to open for The Stooges and Alice Cooper. Eventually they discovered what they called “power-pop” after working in the UK in the mid-70s. They were linked to the punk rock movement and took The Ramones over to England. One of the things that lead to the band’s break-up was covering Beatles’ songs but they covered them well.

3.   Suzie Quatro: I Wanna Be Your Man  (Lennon / McCartney)

Michigan US
Suzi Quatro - Bass, Lead Vocals
Len Tuckey - Guitar, Slide Guitar, Backing Vocals
Alastair McKenzie - Electric Piano, Grand Piano, Mellotron, Backing Vocals

Produced by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, 1973
Recorded by Pete Coleman at Audio International Studio, London
Mastered by Chris Blair

Recorded by The Beatles Sept-Oct 1963

Susan Kay Quatro b. June 3, 1950 Detroit, Michigan

In 1964, after seeing a television performance by the Beatles, Quatro's older sister, Patti, had formed an all-girl rock band called The Pleasure Seekers with two friends. Quatro joined too and assumed the stage name of Suzi Soul; Patti Quatro was known as Patti Pleasure. Suzi would sing and play bass in the band. And that’s how she started out, becoming one of the first female bass players to lead a big rock band.

"I Wanna Be Your Man" is a Lennon–McCartney-penned song that was recorded and released as a single by the Rolling Stones (and then recorded by the Beatles for their second album, With The Beatles). The song was primarily written by Paul McCartney, and finished by John and Paul in the corner of a room while Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were having a conversation. Here’s what was said:

Mick Jagger recalled the song in 1968:

We knew [the Beatles] by then and we were rehearsing and Andrew (Loog Oldham) brought Paul and John down to the rehearsal. They said they had this tune, they were really hustlers then. I mean the way they used to hustle tunes was great: 'Hey Mick, we've got this great song.' So they played it and we thought it sounded pretty commercial, which is what we were looking for, so we did it like Elmore James or something. I haven't heard it for ages but it must be pretty freaky 'cause nobody really produced it. It was completely crackers, but it was a hit and sounded great onstage.

McCartney stated in 2016:

We were friends with them, and I just thought "I Wanna Be Your Man" would be good for them. I knew they did Bo Diddley stuff. And they made a good job of it.

4.   The Sattalites: She Loves You (L&M)
45 single: Axe Records 87
Toronto ON
Fergus Hambleton: lead vocals, guitar, sax
Jo Jo Bennett: flugelhorn, percussion
David Fowler: Keys
Bruce McGillivray: bass
Junior McPherson: drums
Rick Morrison: sax
Bruce Robinson: piano
Produced by Fergus Hambleton & Jo Jo Bennett 1985
Recorded by Fergus Hambleton in studios in Canada and Jamaica

Recorded by The Beatles July 1, 1963

She Loves You is a perfect example of the reggae/fusion way in which The Sattilites looked upon their music. Although the music is reggae and was composed by Fergus Hambleton (he left the songwriting credits to the big guys), it’s sung without a Jamaican accent. Critics praised Hambleton and The Sattilites for teaching a Canadian way of playing reggae music. A lot of people got turned onto the genre because of this recording.

The Sattalites are known as Canada’s longest standing reggae group. The began when two members, Jo Jo Bennett and Fergus Hambleton, started a reggae school to teach, what they called, the Sattalite sound to younger players and kids. By 1982 they began performing and soon pro players joined the band and they recorded Juno Award winning albums and toured Canada and the USA. They were the only Canadian band to play at Sunsplash in Jamaica where they performed flawlessly before 25,000 people.

5.   The Pebbles: We Love The Beatles (Beatlemania Davidson)
First Album: SFTRIU 498
Pebbles: vocals

E Tsuko: bass, vocals
Emily: drums, vocals
Etsuko: bass guitar, vocals
Produced by Toshi Nakamura, 1997
Recorded by Satoshi Yoshida at Meguro-Ku, Tokyo Japan
Mastered by John Vestman

Sounds like an all girl band from the mid-60s but The Pebbles (not to be confused with the Belgian band of the same name) were an all girl band from Japan that formed in the mid-1990s. They released their first album in Mono. The other Pebbles were a rock band from Antwerp who were offered a record deal on Apple Records by George Harrison and weren’t allowed to sign by their French record label, Barclay. They turned down The Beatles!!

6.   Little Richard: I Saw Her Standing There (L&M)

Produced by Little Richard, 1970

Recorded by The Beatles Feb 11, 1963

Richard Wayne Penniman b. Macon GA Dec 5, 1932

Little Richard’s inflence on The Beatles is astronomical. Without him they would never have developed their early sound. His influence can be found on several of Richard’s song found on Beatle albums but also on all kinds of other songs they wrote. Their falsetto woos used to send the girls wild and can be found on a lot of their early hits.

Sarah Lois Vaughan b. Newark NJ March 27, 1924 / d. Hidden Hills, CA April 3, 1990 (aged 66)

This was recorded in 1977 by a father and son team who weren’t the best at producing this ambitious a project. The music never gells but critics loved her version of Eleanor Rigby and Here, There and Everywhere. She even recorded “I Want You (She’s so Heavy)”…

8.   Al Harris Ensemble: Yesterday (L&M)
CBC Transcription Record: Radio Canada International Service LM-35
Toronto ON
Al Harris: guitar
Others not listed
Produced at CBC Toronto, 1966

Recorded by The Beatles: 14 June 1965

Al Harris b. Toronto 1922 – 2006

For a guy who rarely smiled, Smiling Al Harris was given this moniker by Cliff McKay, the host of the Holiday Ranch TV show in the early 1950s.  He was declared “Canada’s Best Guitarist” by DownBeat Magazine (when he was just 18). He then got a job playing for the Mart Kenney Orchestra before joining CBC’s Country Hoedown show. He was the versitile guitarist for Country Hoedown and the Tommy Hunter Show, on CBC TV, through the 1960s. He wrote the Peoples’ Credit Jewellers theme song that every kid in Toronto knew by heart. He gave Lenny Breau lessons in reading music. In 1960 he married one of his music students, Ina, and they performed together for a while. He continued playing professionally well into the 2000s.

Les Habits Jaune made their debut under the name of The Marvel 's. In 1965, they changed their name and recorded two hits for Laval Records: "Miss Boney Maronie and Mr.Long ." They were known for their yellow suits, made from curtain fabric that never wrinkled. They played on mostly yellow instruments and got around in a yellow car. They even bleeched their hair yellow but quickly abandoned that following allergic reactions to the bleeching product they used. When Boney Maronie became a hit in Quebec they filled a 500 seat room in Chicoutimi leaving people standing outside just to hear the band play. It sold 62,000 copies.

10. Donna Lynn: My Boyfriend Got A Beatle Haircut (Jack Wolf  / Maurice “Bugs” Bower)
45 single bw That Winter Weekend: Capitol Records 5127
Donna Lynn: vocals
Produced by Simon Rady, 1964
Recorded in the USA

Donna Lynn Albano b. Canada, 1950

A two hit wonder by the age of 14, all I can find out about Donna Lynn is that she appeared in a Broadway production of “Christine” with Maureen O’Hara. I have no idea what kind of roll she played! Just to capitolize on the success of The Beatles, Lynn went and recorded this song on January 14, 1964 and it was released Feb 10, the day after The Beatles’ American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.

NB she is NOT Donna Lynn, Playmate of the Month, November 1959

After changing record companies, Warner didn’t want the band to record any originals for this, their third LP. The band capitulated and recorded an album of covers. Lead vocalist Sal Valentino explained, "When we went to Warner Brothers, they were just anxious to get a record out, to capitalize on the success we had. That record was the wrong one to do at the time."

Mark Stein lead vocals, keyboards
Vince Martell guitar, vocals
Carmine Appice drums, vocals
Produced by Shadow Morton - 1967
Recorded by Joe Veneri & Bill Stahl

Ticket To Ride recorded by The Beatles 15 February 1965

The Fudge recorded five albums during the years 1967–69, before disbanding inn 1970.  Originally called The Electric Pigeons, they changed their name to The Pigeons. Ahmet Ertegun, their label's founder and president, didn't like that name and told them to change it.

The Fudge were big Beatle fans and recorded Eleanor Rigby as well. They were a major influence on Deep Purple who also covered a Beatles’ song: Help!

On March 14, 1970, Vanilla Fudge played a farewell concert at the Phil Basile's Action House. After that, Bogert & Appice departed to go ahead with another group, Cactus, that they'd been planning since late 1969. In 1972 they left Cactus and formed Beck, Bogert & Appice with guitarist Jeff Beck.

Island Pond, VT / North Hollywood CA
Rudy Vallee: vocal, sax
Others unknown

Recorded by Dave Hassinger & Henry Lewy

The Beatles recorded this November 1965

Hubert Prior Vallée b. Island Pond, VT July 28, 1901 / d. Los Angeles July 3, 1986 (84)

Rudy Vallee and The Beatles go way back! They wrote and recorded P.S. I Love You (by Paul in Hamburg, 1972) but Vallee recorded a song with the same name back in 1934. But a completely different song. Nevertheless, you can hear strains of the old vaudeville and music hall in many of Lennon and McCartney’s songs. So I guess, this is where they come together.

15. The Junior Jug Band: Beatle Bug Bop (Les Kangas)

This song was a novelty for The Collins Kids rockabilly band in 1955. They began performing in 1954 and soon became regulars on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. They made a guest appearance on Shindig in 1965. For the Junior Jug Band, the spelling of Beetle changed to Beatle.

They tried to release their next single on their own Flick records but Arc put an injunction forth so the band broke up. Pinky Dauvin and Grant Fullerton were later featured in Lighthouse.

Recorded by The Beatles 17 March 1967

Originally from the LP Sgt Pepper Knew My Father, a compilation album of big named stars doing Sgt. Pepper songs. Billy Bragg was chosen to do this one.

Produced by Bob Krasnow, 1968
Recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood

When the band went into the studio in late 1967 to record the follow-up to their debut album Safe as Milk, which had been released earlier that year, it was with the intention of producing a double album, provisionally entitled It Comes to You in a Plain Brown Wrapper. Three of the tracks they recorded were long, psychedelic blues jams performed 'live in the studio' (in one take with no overdubs). These were intended to fill one of the set's two LPs. The band were also working on a number of other tracks, many of which would eventually be included on Strictly Personal (1968). These songs were characterized by their polyrhythmic structures and psychedelic themes, which marked a progression from the band's previous blues-rooted work on Safe as Milk. Beatle Bones n’ Smokin’ Stones obviously had something to do with Strawberry Fields Forever but, I’m not sure what that could have been!

After moving to Toronto in 1966 and playing the jazz club circuit, she became known as "Canada's First Lady of Blues". She was a featured performer at the Canadian National Exhibition grandstand in 1969, and enjoying a particular success in musicals. In the late ‘60s she hit the Toronto pop scene. She put together a blues & jazz cabaret show on the history of black music, Indigo - which earned her the Dora Mavor Moore Award for outstanding performance. Bey was made an honourary member of the Order of Canada in 2005.

Denny made friends with fellow Canadian Zal Yanovsky, playing in the Mugwumps together before leaving to form the Mamas and the Papas with Cass Elliot, John Phillips and Michelle Gilliam. The band had an amazing impact on the music scene but there was strife and woe within the group. They broke up in 1968. Denny Doherty eventually moved back to Canada and did bit parts on TV.
