Marketing Rock Old School Style Pt. 4

September 13, 2013

553073_10201491562071590_1437120195_n

Back in the 60’s & 70’s, decades before the internet and instant access to information, a lot of us didn’t know when bands were putting out new albums or singles until we heard them on the radio. Some advanced news would filter in a head of time, minimally, in places like Scene, Creem, Circus, Rolling Stone, Rock Scene, Hit Parader, Trouser Press, etc…

For those of us who bought all the magazines and tabloids (Melody Maker, New Musical Express, Sounds) we’d often get advance word that a new album was being released by the record company advertisements that were placed in the media. They were usually timed to see print just weeks prior to releases so we’d have a heads up on what was coming out.

Here once again are some random samples of various advertisements hyping new album releases from back in the day as seen in various music publications.

Rock & Roll Celluloid Pt. 1

May 25, 2013

Ever since the first dollar profit was made in rock & roll Hollywood producers have released films based on the rock & roll culture. Below is a random sampling of various rock & roll films that featured well-known performers. Some are great, some are entertaining, some are pure garbage. But that’s rock & roll…..

‘Vintage’ Ads For Axes, Skins, Gear & More! Pt.2

May 21, 2013

1111nancy

Back in the 60′s and 70′s I used to read all the advertisements from the guitar, drum, keyboard, hell, even the microphone companies. I’d even order their catalogues, brochures and other propaganda. (Loved it when they stuck in a free poster!). Below are a few random samples of various advertisements from the glory days of rock ‘n roll huckstering musicial gear, often  using rock ‘n roll celebrities. More coming soon.

Four Color Beatles

May 5, 2013

When the Beatles hit it big in the early 1960’s they were mega-stars who appeared in nearly every form of media that existed. Since comic books were still a big seller during that decade it was only natural that someone license their rights for comic books. In addition to ‘official’ comic books the Beatles also appeared in numerous other comic books, sometimes just appearing on the cover. Below is a gallery of a few random samples of comic books and ocmic book panels from back in the day.

The Greatest Meets The Greatest

February 18, 2013

When the Beatles came over to America in 1964 for a tour and two appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show, the band, in Miami for their second Sullivan appearance, spent some time with Cassisu Clay, soon to be known as Muhammad Ali, where the champ was training. The meeting was significant in that both The Beatles and Clay (Ali) were on the verge of conquering their respective ‘worlds’ of music and boxing. These photos were taken at the historic meeting on February 18, 1964.

Great (Jane) Scott!

February 6, 2013

00BolanCleveland

1bolan

Shown here are some photos of legendary rock music journalist Jane Scott interviewing T.Rex’s Marc Bolan in 1972. T.Rex appeared in Cleveland twice that year, on February 25 at the Yorktown Theatre and on September 28 at the Allen Theatre (which I attended).

MarcJaneScott

Jane Scott, along with Gloria Stavers, was one of the first women to cover rock music. She was the country’s first music critic for a major daily newspaper (Cleveland Plain Dealer), a gig she held for nearly 50 years. From the Beatles to Duran Duran, she saw and interviewed them all.

MarcjaneScott3

Jane Scott, who retired at age 82, passed away on July 4, 2011 at the age of 92. On July 5, 2012 the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum unveiled a life-size bronze statue of Jane. Her papers, files and memorabilia were donated to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum.
