Paul McCartney’s unreleased demo version of the song “Goodbye” (1969)

Paul wrote the song for Mary Hopkin, one of the first musicians to sign to The Beatles’ Apple label. To assist Hopkin in learning the song, McCartney recorded a solo demo at his home, 7 Cavendish Road, London, in February 1969.

Mary Hopkin’s single was released on 28 March 1969, and it reached No. 2 in the UK singles chart, prevented from reaching the top position by The Beatles’ single, “Get Back”.

1989 (?): Musician Nicky Hopkins (who was a session pianist on the Imagine album) looks back on the recording of ‘How Do You Sleep’ and wonders about the underlying emotions of its closest collaborators towards the song’s subject.

HOPKINS: My first inkling of what the song was about was hearing John singing it through. As we were learning it I thought, “My god, you’re not really gonna record this.” Because it was obvious who it was about. I thought, “You can’t be serious, these are probably just joke lyrics and you’re going to modify it.” No he didn’t.

We were all just looking at each other. I don’t even think George commented on it, and I thought, “This is interesting.” Here’s George, playing along and taking great pains on the solo to get it right, and I thought, “Now this – how is this going to affect the relationship that George has with Paul, whatever that is or was?” I mean, I knew there was a rift obviously, everybody knew there was the rift between John and Paul at that point, but I thought, “Now, this is gonna surely reflect a little badly on George.” And I thought, “Is George going to refuse to play on this track?” But no, he didn’t. I guess he thought, “Well, this is John’s trip, and that’s up to him. It’s up to these two guys to sort their feud out.”

I Wake And Feel The Fell Of Dark
by Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)
Read by Paul Webster

I wake and feel the fell of dark, not day.
What hours, O what black hours we have spent
This night! what sights you, heart, saw; ways you went!
And more must, in yet longer light’s delay.
With witness I speak this. But where I say
Hours I mean years, mean life. And my lament
Is cries countless, cries like dead letters sent
To dearest him that lives alas! away.

I am gall, I am heartburn. God’s most deep decree
Bitter would have me taste: my taste was me;
Bones built in me, flesh filled, blood brimmed the curse.
Selfyeast of spirit a dull dough sours. I see
The lost are like this, and their scourge to be
As I am mine, their sweating selves; but worse.

love it when the love of one popstar leads you to learn about the involvement of your favourite popstar!

i have been really fond of paul jones ever since i first saw ‘privilege’ way back when (80′s??).   but i never knew that he recorded with the other paul who means so much to me!  

not until last year, anyway, when i stumbled across the song, ‘the dog presides’, which features mr. mccartney on drums, jeff beck, paul samwell-smith and nicky hopkins.  that’s a pretty formidable line-up for such a throw-away song, but no matter.  

it took a while, but i now own this fabulous copy and i am happy!

A BRIDGE TOO FAR (1977)
Grade: C-

Really long with only a mildly interesting plot. The cast is crazy though, a ton of big name actors. Great example of an ensemble cast. Some shots had good framing. Lacked an identity, seemed plain at times. 

Ohuhu Mini Pump Review

 

Paul Horta-Hopkins

A review of the Ohuhu Mini Pump.

 

Pumps are one of those items that every cyclist has, but never wants to use. Despite the existence of sealant filled tubeless tyres, making punctures almost a thing of the past – almost – road cyclists have been slow to take to them. Which means every ride brings with it the possibility of a puncture spoiling your day. Traditional frame pumps with their larger volume barrels made inflating a tyre back up to pressure, if not easy at least bearable. With the advent of modern tube shapes and frame designs it has become difficult to mount a full size pump, which has led to the introduction of the mini pump. Our offering is the Ohuhu Mini Pump

Say hello to my little friend, the Ohuhu Mini Pump

The Ohuhu Mini Pump is a diminutive little beast, at a touch under 190mm when closed, it’s only another 100mm bigger once extended. Weighing in at 89g the Ohuhu fits easily into a rear pocket and won’t be stretching it out of shape. It has a pleasant, solid feel in the hand, due to it’s all metal construction, something that would please my dad, who said a metal pump was always best because they were better for beating off stray dogs in Australia! I’m not sure that is something the Ohuhu Mini Pump would excel at, but if you ever find yourself facing a wild dog in the Australian outback, let us know how you get on.

Antipodean adventures aside, how did the Ohuhu Mini Pump perform? Pumping a 23mm tyre back up to 100psi would seem a pretty realistic test, although I must admit I wasn’t looking forward to what is never an enjoyable experience. Setting the timer going, I was impressed to get to 80psi after only three minutes and up to 100psi in five. Despite it’s short, 100mm stroke, it was only the final 20psi that were uncomfortable. The head of the pump has a smooth profile which you can use for a more comfortable grip, hooking a finger round the end helps hold the pump in place.

89g of miniature pumping power, it’s amazing that something so small can get you back on the road

The handle however is not so comfortable, it’s just a flat cylinder head, so it’s just as well it doesn’t take too long to pump your tyre. The head has a couple of little lugs on the inside that when you push the handle down and twist, engage with a couple of slots in the body and keep the head from moving or rattling.

The head has a small metal lever for clamping the pump onto the inner tube valve, this again is metal and has a nice, firm feel to it’s action. The head can be disassembled and the internals swapped around to accept a Schrader valve.

The head comes apart allowing you to swap the internals around

The Ohuhu Mini Pump comes with a holder that attaches to your bottle cage mounts. This is fitted with a velcro strap, so once you’ve clipped the pump in place you can strap it down, safe in the knowledge is isn’t going anywhere. I must admit I didn’t bother with this and preferred to keep it in my back pocket. There is also a small cover for the valve, to keep muck out when attached to the bike, however this was too attractive an accessory for my toddler, who removed it. As the pump spends all it’s time in my rear pocket this isn’t a problem.

Retailing for around £11, the Ohuhu Mini Pump is a great little pump, it’ll never be as easy to use as a full size frame pump, but it does work and will get you back on the road if the puncture fairies strike.
