The Beatles – Yellow Submarine (Comic) (1968)

FrontCoverThere had been a Yellow Submarine comic published by Gold Key Comics in 1968, produced in advance of the movie. It included passages not found in the film, and character designs made prior to the final designs were okayed for the film. (wogew.blogspot)

In 1968, a comic book based on the movie Yellow Submarine was made. It was published by Gold Key comics. It doesn’t quite follow the storyline of the whole movie, it has seas that are not in the movie such as:

The Sea of Consumer Products

The Sea of Cinema

The Sea of Time looked different

The Sea of Holes looked almost the same

It has songs that are not in the movie such as:

Lovely Rita (from the Sgt Pepper album)

Getting Better (from the Sgt Pepper album)

Mary Had a Little Lamb is not a Beatles song, but it was sung to distract the Blue Meanies (by yellowsubmarine.wikia.com)

So, here´s this comic … a really nice, crazy and funny trip in the golden days of pop art …

Robin Leach + Ron Hutcheson – Go – Pop Annual (1968)

PopAnnual1968_01AHere´s another item from my collection of music books.

GO Magazine was a North America-wide free newspaper/magazine that was distributed between 1967 and 1969. Believe it or not, the editor was Robin Leach (yes, the guy who later became famous for “Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous”). Basically, it contained syndicated articles about Top 40 artists and was the same in every city.

Here some more informations about Robin Leach:

Robin Douglas Leach (born 29 August 1941) is an English-born American entertainment celebrity reporter writer famous for hosting his first show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, in the mid-1980s and into the mid-1990s, which focused on profiling well-known celebrities and their lavish homes, cars and other materialistic endeavors. His voice is often parodied by other actors with his signature phrase, “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” During the final season, he was assisted by Shari Belafonte, and the show was renamed, Lifestyles with Robin Leach and Shari Belafonte. During grammar school at Harrow County School for Boys, 10 miles (16 km) from London, he edited a school magazine, The Gayton Times, at age 14. At age 15 he became a general news reporter for the Harrow Observer and started a monthly glossy town magazine at age 17. Leach moved on to the Daily Mail as Britain’s youngest “Page One” reporter, at age 18. In 1963, he emigrated to America and wrote for a number of publications (New York Daily News, People, Ladies Home Journal etc.) before launching GO Magazine and then was show business editor of The Star. Other television work includes reporting for People Tonight, on
