William Everett Preston b September 2, 1946 Houston, TX – d. June 6, 2006 (aged 59) Scottsdale, Arizona

At the age of 11, Preston appeared on Nat King Cole's national TV show singing the Fats Domino hit "Blueberry Hill" with Cole. He went on to play blues founder, WC Handy in a biopic, playing the young WC. In 1962, Preston joined Little Richard's band as an organist, and it was while performing in Hamburg that he met the Beatles.

In 1969, when the Beatles were about to break up while recording the last album they released, Let It Be (they would later record Abbey Road, which was released prior to Let It Be). George Harrison, a friend of Preston, had quit, walked out of the studio and gone to a Ray Charles concert in London, where Preston was playing organ. Harrison brought Preston back to the studio, where his keen musicianship and gregarious personality temporarily calmed the tension.

"Outa-Space" also won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance of 1972. In the 90's Intel Corporation used the song to promote their MMX-enabled Pentium processors.

The Asteroids were formed in 1957 by Mel Clark, Jon Everett (Dov Ivry) and Alan Reid. They were 16 years old. When the  Sputnik went up not long after, they sat down and wrote their first song, Satellite. Blast off was the first Rodeo Records, basically a C&W label, release of rock n roll.

Having been a member of successful Canadian band Fludd, Greg Godovitz decided that it was time to form his own band Goddo in 1975. He used Gino Scarpelli from Brutus and Doug Inglis. This was their best received album but due to financial difficulties, Attic Records dropped them.

Released July 21, 1972

Originally known as Tyrannosaurus Rex, they released their first four albums under that name before shortening it to T Rex in 1970. So Spaceball Ricochet comes from the third album under the new name or 7th over all. I know: it’s confusing. The band ended on the evening of Sept 15, 1977 when, after a drinking session at a pub, Gloria Jones crashed their car into a tree, killing Bolan instantly.

Jackson Hawke was co-founded in 1974 by Tim Ryan and Bob Yeomans. The two had originally begun working together as professional musicians in 1963 and had earlier been managed by noted Canadian manager, promoter and record producer Bernie Finkelstein.

This is a band that was based in Toronto but were mostly from the Sault Ste. Marie area of Northern Ontario. To me they sounded a lot like Procol Harum. Great lead vocals by several of their players. They released two albums of good quality songs in 1976 and 77.

Barrie On
Dave Hadfield: DADGAD rhythm guitar, vocal
Stuart Steinhart: bass
Ian Ross: lead guitar
Produced by Dave Hadfield, 2018
Recorded & Mastered at Cutting Edge Studios, Barry by Gary Long

Chris Hadfield circled around the planet on the International Space Station which most likely inspired his brother, Dave – a pilot for Air Canada – to write and record this song from his CD called Climbin’ Away. Dave is a well known singer/songwriter now, but he used to compose and sing songs with his brother Dave – and still does. Chris was the first human to record an album in space, an LP called Space Sessions which was released on vinyl.

Test Pressing No. 5 of Presented By Lake Michigan Soda : WEA ?Records 75782

Great pulsating rhythms on this song by ex-Blue Rodeo keyboardist, Bobby Wiseman. I’ve loved this song for a long time but don’t really know what it has to do with Astronauts or space.

Kevin Dukes: guitar
Produced by Bill Szymczyk, 1983

From Walsh’s 6th solo album with Joe Vitale.
The lyrics are a personal commentary, critical of then-modern American culture against Walsh's older pinball and pool generation. The lyrics also reflect a satirical view on this, with lines such as: "I feel a little bit mixed up, maybe I'm obsolete".

Originally intended for the A Hard Day’s Night soundtrack, ‘I’ll Cry Instead’ was replaced with ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ at the request of director Richard Lester. It was restored for an opening collage sequence during the film’s 1986 VHS reissue.

John Lennon stated: “I wrote that for A Hard Day’s Night, but Dick Lester didn’t even want it. He resurrected ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ for that sequence instead. I like the middle eight to that song, though – that’s about all I can say about it.”

Lennon’s wife Cynthia later described such songs as reflecting “the frustration he felt at that time. He was the idol of millions, but the freedom and fun of the early days had gone.”

‘I’ll Cry Instead’ was recorded on 1 June 1964. During the same afternoon session The Beatles also recorded ‘Matchbox’ and ‘Slow Down’.

In August 1964, the band's manager Jim Dickson acquired an acetate disc of
"Mr. Tambourine Man" from Dylan's publisher, featuring a performance by Dylan and Ramblin' Jack Elliott. To further bolster the group's confidence in the song, Dickson invited Dylan to hear The Byrd’s rendition. Dylan was impressed, enthusiastically commenting, "Wow, you can dance to that!” That was when he decided to go electric a year later.

This song has been performed and recorded by many artists, including: Judy Collins, Odetta, Melanie, and William Shatner.

Judge Julius Hoffman was infamous as the judge who sentenced Lenny Bruce of obscenity charges. He is best known as the judge who presided over the trial of the Chicago 7. All seven were found by a jury to be not guilty of conspiracy, but five of the defendants were found guilty of inciting a riot, and Hoffman sentenced each of the five to the maximum penalty: five years in prison and a fine of $5,000, plus court costs. In addition, Hoffman sentenced all eight defendants and both of their lawyers (William Kunstler and Leonard Weinglass) to lengthy jail terms for contempt of court.

So John Prine goes and outs in one of the sweetest ‘I love marijuana’ songs of the day: Illegal Smile.

Produced by Wes Farrell, 1967
Recorded by Bruce Staple at Allegro Sound Studios, NYC

Considered to be a “Sunshine” group,  MGM Records signed Every Mothers Son as a clean-cut alternative to the 1960s counterculture. Songwriter Wes Ferral was impressed with them; he had composed songs such as "Hang on Sloopy", "Boys" (covered by The Beatles), and "Come a Little Bit Closer" and wanted them to do something with Come On Down To My Boat. (The song was originally recorded by a band called “The Rare Breed” who would shortly change their name to Ohio Express, one of the truly horrible bubble gum groups of the time, under the title "Come and Take a Ride in My Boat".) The EMS recording of the song was their only real ‘hit’; they broke up in 1968.
