The Week in Review #24: Lost Kingsmen Footage Re-Surfaces, Chris Allman’s Son Ties the Knot, and More…

*DBM spotted rare hand-held video of the Kingsmen’s first taping of what later became Stand Up. It was first filmed in Mississippi, but because of technical problems with the recording, it was re-done in Opryland. These videos are from the Mississippi performance. The quality is grainy and won’t exactly warm the cockles of an audiophile’s heart, but if you’re a Kingsmen fan, this should be a gold-mine for you!

*The Sisters performed Dottie Rambo’s “Until He Comes” at the Absolutely Gospel awards. I got to see the video of their performance until it was inexplicably removed. Take my word for it—they were utterly brilliant. Hopefully it will be re-uploaded. Meanwhile, enjoy Steve Eaton’s samples from the 1975 record on which the sisters first recorded this song as young girls singing with their mother.

*I didn’t get on the ball and wish my friend Dustin Allman a hearty congratulations on his wedding last Saturday. So, to make up for it… congratulations Dustin! Enjoy your honeymoon!

*Congratulations also to Crist Family alto Breana Crist on her marriage to Josh Henderson.

*You can read the Garms Family’s latest newsletter here. Among other items of interest, it discusses an upcoming project which will feature only the Little Adventurers. This should be good!

*Movie news: Blue Like Jazz is coming to a theater near you. My advice for you: Just say no. But more on that later.

*Ye have often heard it said by audio geeks that when it comes to classic oldies, the original mono mixes PWN all other mixes. Verily verily I say unto you… the geeks are right:

The thread is yours.

    I realize I’m overthinking this, but I’ve always wondered why the Beatles chose to put the Virgin Mary into one of their songs. I guess they just really, really liked the modern English equivalent of “be it unto me.” Fiat.
