Paul Carrack returns with new album, TV documentary and UK tour

October 11, 2012

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

British singer-songwriter Paul Carrack’s four-decade career is to be celebrated in a new TV documentary which will be screened on BBC4 on October 12 (10pm UK time).

Titled The Man With The Golden Voice, the TV documentary features interviews with Carrack’s musical colleagues Chris Difford, Mike Rutherford, Timothy B Schmit and Nick Lowe.

The programme documents Carrack’s journey from his Sheffield roots to become a highly-respected solo performer, a member of Ace and Mike & the Mechanics, and a collaborator with legends such as Roger Waters, Roxy Music, Elton John, Ringo Starr and B.B. King.

The TV tribute follows the release of Carrack’s latest blue-eyed soul album Good Feeling on September 24. It features 12 classy tracks, including several brand new songs, a collaboration with Squeeze’s Chris Difford (titled ‘Marmalade Moon’), a new version of Nick Lowe’s ‘From Now On’ (first recorded on Carrack’s Suburban Voodoo album 30 years ago), and an excellent cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Lucky Town track ‘If I Should Fall Behind’.

Carrack produced Good Feeling himself and plays most of the instruments on the album. His son Jack, now a member of his touring band, plays drums on the album.

Guest performers on 2012 include The Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Don Was, Van Dyke Parks and Edgar Winter.

The album features a new song called ‘In Liverpool’ which Ringo co-wrote with Dave Stewart. The track gives Ringo a chance to reminisce about his life in the city of his youth.

Disney cancels The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine remake in 3D

April 29, 2011

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

Disney Studios has reportedly scrapped its plans to remake The Beatles’ 1968 psychedelic film Yellow Submarine in 3D, blaming “budget issues”.

   The 3D project was to be directed by Oscar-winning Robert Zemeckis, the creative driving force behind Back To The Future, Forrest Gump and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He planned to use the same motion-capture 3D animation and special effects he employed in the films Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol.

   When the film was first announced in August 2009, Zemeckis said he hoped to get Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr involved in the project. He wanted to incorporate the 16 Beatles songs and recordings from the original film – including ‘All Together Now’, ‘All You Need Is Love’, ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.

   Last year, Zemeckis revealed that Dean Lennox Kelly (from BBC TV’s Robin Hood) would provide the voice of John Lennon, along with Peter Serafinowicz (Paul McCartney), Adam Campbell (Ringo Starr) and Cary Elwes (George Harrison).

   The original version of Yellow Submarine – directed by George Dunning – reflected the ‘peace and love’ counter-culture of 1967 and 1968 and told the story of a peaceful, music-loving underwater community that is attacked by music-hating ‘blue meanies’.
