READY PLAYER ONE is a Steven Spielberg film adapted from a book clearly inspied byt eh peak blockbuster version of Spielberg -- and arena where Spielberg has not often played lately.  And perhaps it is all of this -- or the virtual relaity where much of the action occurs -- that gives off a slight feeling of virtual Spielberginess.  Or prehaps Spielberg is now at a place in his life where he cannot tap into that vintage Spielberg thing in exactly the same ways as decades ago. But he remains a master directo, and so even the virtual Spielberg is quite entertaining, and generally better than others who have tried to be virtual Spielberg (looking at you, J.J.).  Obviously, it's more fun the more rooted you are in the pop culture of the 80s and early 90s, but with plenty for those who are not.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with THE BYRDS!  Pretty much because I dig them as we turn into Spring (or Fall).  Let's start with a rare 1965 clip of their breakthrough smash cover of "Mr. Tambourine Man."  There are screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  Next up is a rare sync of "I Knew I'd Want You." There are even more dancers when they cover Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."  You might recognize the voice introducing "Bells Of Rhymney" from poolside in August 1965 and "It Won't Be Wrong" from a corral in January 1966 on Where The Action Is.  BONUS:  Want a couple in color?  Here's "Turn, Turn, Turn!" and "Mr. Spaceman." DOUBLE BONUS: A rare 1967 sync of "Eight Miles High."

AMEN DUNES advance streams Freedom.

THE SHACKS advance stream Haze.

ORQUESTA AKOKAN advance streams their self-titled LP on Dap-Tone.
