You Are Warmly Invited To A Nosh – Half Of Larry’s Lunch

Author Geoffrey Giuliano and Bonzo Dog man “Legs” Larry Smith had a professional relationship that spanned six wry, weird years in the early 1980s. Together they crafted a cockeyed film script for Giuliano’s firm, intended for George Harrison’s Handmade Films, entitled Half of Larry’s Lunch, which, unfortunately, never made it to the screen and was eventually dropped. With concentrated work on the project conducted in pastoral Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, and Toronto, the two men spent untold months living and working together. Only recently was the interview and other material used in the production of this unique audiobook discovered after being lost for over three decades. With a lively, fairly bizarre interview between the two, an oddly amusing collection of Henley street interviews conducted by Geoffrey, and other Giuliano-penned musical odds and ends, here is a rare inside look at not only the unlikely relationship between these two talented men but also a breakdown of the creative process in its rawest and most primal form. An audio biographical must for all pop and rock fans, Bonzo Dog freaks, film buffs, underappreciated punks of all shapes and sizes as well as all university and school systems.

You Are Here: Unfinished Interviews John Ono Lennon 1968-1973

The enigmatic founder and leader of the Beatles, John Lennon was not only a groundbreaking musician and composer for the ages but also a keen philosopher, seeker of truth, and politically savvy advocate of nonviolence, tolerance, and unrestricted personal freedom. The enlightened big brother to now several generations, Lennon consistently gave everything he had, and then some, to his liberated, infectious music and wide-ranging, common-sense political ideals. In this expansive, comprehensive collection, the very best of John Lennon’s thought-provoking words, the myth, legend, and rumor surrounding this great man is stripped away, and the real John as artist and thoughtful global citizen emerges. Carefully edited to relieve the listener of the tedious twee of the almost always ill-informed and sensationalist-seeking interviewer, Lennon is free to speak his mind on an incredible array of subjects; including his work with the Beatles, his days as a freaky peace politician, his relationships with the other members of the group, the painful trails of his parentless childhood, the creation of his artistic work, and other equally engrossing entertaining Lennonspeak. Here is the perfect collection of the great John Lennon for every dedicated Beatles fan, music historian, the media, as well as all school, library, institutional, and university collections.

Wuthering Heights The Original Manuscript

Wuthering Heights is an 1847 novel by Emily Brontë, published under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It concerns two families of the landed gentry living on the West Yorkshire moors, the Earnshaws and the Lintons, and their turbulent relationships with Earnshaw’s adopted son, Heathcliff. It was influenced by Romanticism and Gothic fiction. Wuthering Heights is now considered a classic of English literature, but contemporaneous reviews were polarized. It was controversial for its depictions of mental and physical cruelty, and for its challenges to Victorian morality, and religious and societal values.

Wuthering Heights

Although Wuthering Heights is now a classic of English literature, contemporaneous reviews were deeply polarised; it was controversial because of its unusually stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty, and it challenged Victorian ideas about religion, morality, class and woman’s place in society. The English poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, although an admirer of the book, referred to it as “A fiend of a book – an incredible monster The action is laid in hell, – only it seems places and people have English names there.” Wuthering Heights was influenced by Romanticism including the novels of Walter Scott, gothic fiction, and Byron, and the moorland setting is significant. The novel has inspired many adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatisations; a musical and even a ballet.

Wrong Side of the Tracks The Rolling Stones – In Conversation

What is it which still drives The Rolling Stones, all well into their 70s (with the exception of guitarist Ron Wood) to continue to commit to the grueling grind of international touring year after year? Although they all have large families it certainly can’t be the money anymore. They pretty much all stopped drinking and drugging, and despite their sometimes outrageous appearance lead fairly conservative familial lives. The wild adulation of the fans, let’s face it, after 50+ years must, by definition, become rather tiresome. Yet still the answer as to why they continue to do what they do so well is very simple – it’s the music stupid. The fact is the Rolling Stones get the same incredible high-octane kick out of their music as the fans do. And why not play music into your 70s – all of their original heroes, the old Delta blues men certainly did! In this unique audiobook by actor, author, narrator Geoffrey Giuliano you’ll find the very best of the Stones in their own words and of those who know them best. For every committed fan, popular music historian, casual listener, student of 20th century art and culture, curious commuter, as well as all library and school systems, here is the perfect audio addition to your collection. Listen to it, learn from it, and enjoy the incredible spectacle, high art and unthinkable longevity of the fabulous and imaginative rock band founded so many years ago by the late great Brian Jones. Ladies and gentlemen The Rolling Stones!
