    " Klaatu barada nikto " is a phrase that originated in the 1951 science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still. The humanoid alien protagonist of the film, Klaatu ( Michael Rennie ), instructs Helen Benson ( Patricia Neal) that if any harm befalls him, she must say the phrase to the robot Gort ( Lockard Martin ).

    Two years before the Klaatu album dropped, Ringo had appeared atop Capitol Records in effigy and in the company of the film's spaceman.

    Both Ringo and Klaatu were on Capitol.

    Coincidence?

  3. OK Jim forced me to post this. :laugh: This is something I did during the early 80's, there is a bass solo at about the 4:30 mark, it's a cover of Not Fade Away, I played this on my 68 CAR fretless P bass, I think it had a maple neck at this time and played through an SVT with two cabs mic'd and I'm sure this was through the board, I played hard which explains the tone during the solo, I'm pretty sure I had half round strings on it at that time. This was a full time band and I had a blast in this band, I think this was right at the beginning because I can a few beginning errors. The band was called Southpaw, I think I've posted a few tune from YouTube here before but this is from a CD I have at home.

    Thank you, Bob. That was great and may inspire others to post their tunes.

    The true meaning of the '60's Bassists Club is to honor those who played back then or liked them and/or are continuing to play.

    There aren't a lot of us left but, we can still make a difference and that is the point of what we do.

    The '60's will live on...

    You are 100% correct sir, and Bob, that was a nice rendition of a great tune! I have played that tune in several bands that I was in, and loved it!
    We are getting old and unfortunately dieing off, we need to show this new generation what our music was and I believe that the real musicians out there will enjoy it and maybe even play a few tunes for fun, if not at least use some of the feel and groove that these greats had and incorporate it into there originals
    Again, these are only the ravings of a old bassist! Your mileage may differ!

  6. Now that I actually learned how to upload CD's onto my computer, you guys are going to have to suffer through a few more of these tunes. I have a whole hour's worth. :laugh:

    The mileage does not differ.

    We do not rave, we just speak the truth.

    We are all in this together.

    Hopefully, everyone will benefit.

    We doubled up...no matter, it was a great tune. I did like the harmonica in the Stone's tune though ;).

  15. Here's an original from that band, no idea where it was recorded, some club through the board, this band was actually a country rock band, some Southern rock too. The singer was from Tennessee and wrote a song about his home state.

    That may be a more "acquired" taste to some...
