Rock ‘N Roll Eye Candy Part 4

November 19, 2012

Back on August 7 of this year we posted Rock ‘N Roll Eye Candy Part Three. We’ve stumbled across a few more so… here is Part Four and a few more billboards from ‘back in the day’, the glory years of rock & roll.

And if you’re wondering why a hard rocker like myself would use a Bobby Sherman billboard it’s dedicated in honor of my very special ‘Birthday Sister’ Jeannie. I know, I know……

50 Years Of Satisfaction!

July 12, 2012
 
The Rolling Stones are 50 years old!
Who’d thunk it?
50 years and still together.
A half century of rock & roll.
The Rankin photograph seen here was taken today, July 12, 2012 to note the first public appearance by the Rolling Stones at the Marquee Club on Oxford Street in London on July 12, 1962.
Been listening to them for 48 years. And have enjoyed every minute of it.
Thanks for 50 years of greatness, good times & outstanding music. R.I.P. Brian & StuKeith, the fact that you are still here and still ready to rock is the ultimate ironic & iconic statement that you could make at this point in time. You won!
Maybe sometimes you can always get what you want.

Marketing Rock Old School Style Pt. 3

July 12, 2012

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 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.
