The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 43 & 44 of 44


 
HERES WHAT YOU ALL ‘VE BEEN WAITING FOR!!! the two final parts of the beatles starschnitt, which started in the humble beginnings of this blog, last december.
to celebrate this and to catch up with last week, here are both parts in a single post. again i must apologize for the delay and for the long silence on tfr, but many things are happening right now, private as well as job-related. nothing bad or stressful, but just too many changes at a time. theres a big exam for me to take at the end of this month; when its done posts will be more regular again.

i hope you enjoyed the starschnitt series, either to refresh beloved memories from the good ol times, or to discover new stuff from “back then”. as this is the only music-related starschnitt (and the only complete one) that i have, the BRAVO-series will end here. im already thinking of a new project to post in parallel to the vinyl records, but nothing will be revealed yet at this point.
to those who downloaded and perhaps printed out all the puzzle-parts, if you put them together and …

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 40 of 44


 
sorry for the delay, but here finally is part 40 of the bravo beatles starschnitt. the front page again is not very exciting this time, but the back page again is and example of the humble state in which female emancipation somehow still was at the time. here again we have readers contest in which girls could win a make-up set – and boys could win a cassette recorder (!!!), which of course in 1966 was about a million times more valuable for any teen than make-up or similar products. well at least id have preferred to be a boy if i had won this contest!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 39 of 44


 
its time for our weekly beatles jigsaw-piece! the backpage this time offers a short opening paragraph of an article about bruce johnston joining the beach boys (he replaced brian wilson in april 1965). the rest of the article is missing – but at least were coming closer to completing our giant bealtes puzzle!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 38 of 44


 
as promised, heres the additional starschnitt issue for the one that was missing during my stay at the festival. this time the front page is equally boring, and on the back page we have a lovely picture of romy schneider from the ’66 movie ‘chimney no. 4’.
have fun cutting out the stuff and adding it to your lifesize beatles poster!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 37 of 44


 
another week has passed, so heres your next part of our beatles-puzzle. some part of eskimo clothing on the front page, and on the back page a picture of kirk douglas from the movie ‘is paris burning?’ (also starring: jean-paul belmondo, alain delon and yes montand).

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 36 of 44


 
for the collectors among you, heres part 36 of the big big beatles puzzle. on the front page, theres another part of ringos clothes (our “last beatle” in this case).
on the back page theres a picture of doris day in a mermaid costume from the ’66 film ‘the glass bottom boat’. considering she was “already” 44 at the time, i think this is a marvelous photo! at least i would be more than happy looking like that when reaching the mid-40s… i wonder if she still looks as good today, now being twice as old, but i couldnt find any recent picture within five minutes of googling – but i think we can trust wikis info that shes still alive at least!
have fun cutting out your starschnitt piece!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 35 of 44


 
as my computer now is finally equipped with a new harddrive (twice as much disc space as the old one!), heres the overdue starschnitt part for last week. this is also my good-bye-post for this week, as tomorrow ill be off for “vacation” until sunday – but vacation in this case means that im going to the burg herzberg hippie festival in hessen, like every summer. i will be back with lots of photos and concert reports of course!
have a nice week, see you next monday.

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 34 of 44


 
what was so very caracteristic about the beatles outward appearance when beatlemania broke out? their haircuts (mop tops)? their collar-less suits? perhaps, but for sure it was also their boots!
and here we have a prime example of a beatle boot, covering the foot of no one else but ringo starr – who will be 70 next week, by the way. have fun with this new part of the starschnitt puzzle – only ten parts to go!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 33 of 44


 
the backpage of this part again features the rolling stones, this time they receive the “BRAVO indian”, representing the “BRAVO Otto” award that they had won. this award was given to the band/artist the bravo-readers voted as their favourite (see the previous starschnitt part with the voting results on its backpage) every year.
again i am sorry that theres not a lot of new music here, but there still are two important exams to go and my free time is very scarce. on the 19th july i will return from the herzberg festival and provide you with reports, photos, etc (the main act will be jeff beck), and as ill be on vacation afterwards i will have more time to copy/scan/upload new stuff. and there will be some pretty cool stuff, i promise!

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 31 & 32 of 44


 
heres your weekly dose of good old 60s memorabilia, this time a double issue of the beatles starschnitt, showing a part of johns hair and of his eskimo coat.
the back page shows (part of) the results of a readers poll with the best bands at the time. the typical BRAVO reader seems to have been a beatles fan, as they win with 115476 votes, the stones following up with “only” 74088 votes – still a damn lot more than the group on rank three, the rainbows (10274 votes) – yes, they were the one-hit-wonders with ‘my baby balla balla’. strange to see them on the third rank considering one hardly remembers them today (be honest, even if you know that song would you have remembered who sang it?). more popular german groups like the lords (4719 votes) and the rattles (1537 votes) are left behind in the middle field of ranks (unfortunately the page with ranks 4, 5, 9, 10, 14, 15, 19 and 20 is missing, would be very interesting to know what other groups appeared there). the most surprising fact about this poll is that “super-groups” like the kinks, the who and the animals …

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 30 of 44


 
TFR proudly presents: the next beatle face! heres a portrait of a momentous, pensive john lennon – just at a time when he had just written those awesome, witty poems i post from time to time. three out of four beatles completed, hows that?
back to hic et nunc: i think i am going to put the blog aside for a while, because i dont have any free time left right now. i have to work from 8am to 4pm and then attend university from 6pm to 9.15pm, now every day of the week. and as university is on saturdays from 8.30am to 3.45pm aswell, im afraid but i dont have any time left to rip or scan any records. i will keep on posting the starschnitt parts though, but it seems youll have to wait a little while for new music posts. i will try to make some smaller posts from time to time, but at the latest ill be back by the end of june with a brand new report from germanys biggest hippie festival since 1968 – the burg herzberg festival in hessen. which will also be the beginning of my summer holidays this …

The Beatles: Bravo Magazine Starschnitt Part 29 of 44


 
here it is, ringos eskimo sleeve! not very interesting perhaps, but another little piece bringing us closer to the complete giant beatles poster! now whats much more interesting about this issue is the back page, showing (part of) an interview with a very very young mick jagger, which today seems kind of unintendedly funny when one thinks of how it went on with him and the stones. as it is so nice to read, i translated it for you:

Mick Jagger tells of his life, of girls and cash

continuing from page 49

“Wanna bet that you spent more money last week than I did?” welcomes Mick Jagger our BRAVO-correspondent, who was to question the boss of the Rolling Stones about girls and cash. Luckily Mick, who sometimes is a little temperamental, was in a splendid mood. He began talking like a waterfall. “You see”, he went on, “I spent exactly six mark [i really dont know why they converted the currency into german DM when translating that interview, today you wouldnt do that i guess] for a pair of socks. Why should I squander my money? I just …
