Back in 2006, Nike re-released a widely popular Nike Basketball shoe from the mid-90’s catalog the Nike Air Max Uptempo 2 in the classic White/Blue/Black colorway. These were often attributed to the Duke Blue Devils, who wore a number of different Nike Basketball shoes like the Air Flight Huarache, Air Force Max B, and Air Unlimited, but it was also the UConn Huskies who rocked these beauties throughout most of the ’95 Tourney. These are slated for a return this December, which may be a puzzling move by the folks over at Nike Sportswear considering the Uptempo 2 wasn’t exactly great performer back in 2006 in terms of sales. More colorways are expected to drop prior to the release of this OG colorway in November.
Adele Makes U.K. Chart History first Artist To Sell 3 Million Albums In Same Year
Adele may have walked away from last night’s Mercury Prize empty handed, but she hasn’t had to wait too long to find consolation: The twenty-three year-old is the first artist ever to have three million U.K. album sales in one calendar year, thanks to her all-conquering sophomore album “21,” which has even topped sales by the Beatles, Michael Jackson and Pink Floyd
All 17 of the Rolling Stones’ performances on “The Ed Sullivan Show” will be released Nov. 1 in a deluxe package from Universal Music Enterprises and Sofa Entertainment. An abridged version of the Stones on “Sullivan” will be released Oct. 4.
The deluxe edition, titled “Six Ed Sullivan Shows starring The Rolling Stones” includes several performances that have never been released, including their final appearance on the variety show on Nov. 23, 1969. The deluxe package includes six full episodes of “The Ed Sullivan Show” while the Oct. 4 release is “Four Ed Sullivan Shows starring The Rolling Stones.”
“The best Rolling Stones TV performances are on these shows,” says Andrew Solt, executive producer of the sets and founder of Sofa Entertainment, who researched the band’s visual history while making a documentary on the band’s first 25 years. “On the concert films and on other shows you don’t get the same production values, and here the sound is as good as the visuals. … Groups knew they would appear in front of 35 million people so they rehearsed and made sure they would look good before going on. Knowing they were playing live on TV made them do their best.”
The Rolling Stones appeared six times on “Ed Sullivan” between 1964 and 1969. Their first appearance, Oct. 25, 1964, featured a performance of “Time Is On My Side.” They returned May 2, 1965 to perform “The Last Time,” “Little Red Rooster,” “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love” and, over the end credits, “2120 South Michigan Avenue.”
Later performances, presented in color, came on Feb. 13, 1966 (“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “As Tears Go By,” “19th Nervous Breakdown”); Sept. 11,1966 (“Paint It, Black,” “Lady Jane,” “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadows?”) and Jan. 15, 1967, the final “Sullivan” appearance with founding member Brian Jones (“Ruby Tuesday” and the reworded “Let’s Spend The Night Together” that became “Let’s Spend Some Time Together”). The Nov. 23, 1969 appearance — with guitarist Mick Taylor — featured the songs “Gimme Shelter,” “Love In Vain” and “Honky Tonk Woman.” The Oct. 4 release features the 1965, ’66 and ’67 shows.)
Both packages include all of the complete episodes, which feature performances from Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Tom Jones and Petula Clark, comedians Phyllis Diller, Robert Klein and Rodney Dangerfield, plus the Muppets, dance troupes and opera singers.
