OBSERVATION from a local guru, sometimes prone to provocative insight: “The Beatles’ LP cover could be called, Oh, What A Lovely Funeral.” Could it be that the Liverpudlians are lumping themselves already among all those fallen “cult” idols? Same guru predicts that something super-spectacular will develop out of George Harrison’s music. I second the motion . . . The coolest treat in years is the Vanilla Fudge, a new discovery of Shadow Martin (who also made Janis Ian’s Society’s Child.) Shadow is becoming an East Coast Lou Adler . . . Herman’s Hermits’ first major film, the upcoming Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, is described as a “hip, Walt Disney-type of comedy-drama with music” and deals with the dog-racing business.

Her first initial is D. She’s from a big family, and her dad is a famous singer. His first initial is D. He’s Manchester’s gift to The—oops, I almost let the secret out—and they’ve been steady-dating—with a capital D. . . . Leonard “Mr. Spock” Nimoy drew an SRO crowd when he did an “autograph party” at a New York record store. Hope you latched onto his record Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock’s Music From Outer Space on Dot Records.

Marriage predictions: Pretty Kathy Carpenter to her steady David McCallum—maybe even by the time this is in print.

Just in case you don’t know by now, here—in the box on this page—is a list of songs, lead singers and composers on the Beatles’ fabulous new LP.
