Spare Change for Indian Insects

8 10 2012

In my fervid quest for audio’s best, I spied this gem – a Beatles 78.  India kept making 78s into the early 1970’s and there are a lot of Sir Cliff Richard’s and Ricky Nelson’s to be had.  Not so many Beatles still around. But, you know, that they know, just what this is, and what it takes to make it part o’ d’ARC’s permanent collection. Cost is $1,500.00 and we will gladly accept donations to help with this purchase – I have about a week to decide to buy.

Here’s the shop warehouse – a gem in itself, part garage, part shrine – in the Shaw family for generations. Picked up a few more affordables here, but about that Beatles record…

And now, the reel fab four in a clip from the Hindi film Janwar, 1965, and their version of, “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”

That was great – although the guy in the white suit at 0:26 looks like he may have stepped on a live electrical cable! I’m going to repost this to my blog “The Eclectic Ear” here at WordPress. Please visit!
