A special limited edition poster release of the "Apple Jam" image from George Harrison's “All Things Must Pass” album will be available next month, says Jeff S. Levy, publisher of the long out-of-print “Applelog.” You can see the picture of the poster on this page. Levy says the digital graphic was generated utilizing a direct print from the 1970 Apple Records transparency.

It will be available in a limited edition of 1,000 impressions and will be only available to be ordered online. The book itself is planned to be updated as an e-book in 2015, Levy says.

Ahme mine: Eleanor Bron, who played the mysterious Ahme in the Beatles' movie “Help!,” was recently added as unannounced new addition to the cast of the BBC radio series “The Archers,” according to the BBC. Bron has had a long acting career with roles on TV and in movies, including the TV series “Yes Minister,” “Doctor Who” and “Midsomer Murders.” “The Archers” is the world's longest running soap opera, according to the BBC, and has been running for 60 years in the UK.
