A Caixa de CDs da Apple Records

Por Marco Antonio Mallagoli

Quando lançaram a Apple, uma das principais ideias dos Beatles, era lançar novos artistas que não tinham oportunidade em outras gravadoras.
Com isso, passaram a receber milhares de fitas k7 (era o recurso da época) e visitas de milhares de cantores, bandas, etc, e isso acabou gerando um mal-estar tanto entre eles, como na Apple, pois eles queriam se dedicar as suas criações e gravações.
Na verdade tiveram poucos contatos pessoais com esses artistas, e designaram alguns funcionários para atendê-los, mas, devido à desorganização e bagunça que era a Apple naquele período, as fitas foram ficando amontoadas em uma sala e poucas foram ouvidas.
A ideia era boa, mas não tinham estrutura para leva-la a frente.

No entanto alguns poucos artistas acabaram sendo contratados, mais por indicação de algum amigo ou de alguma empresa amiga, do que das fitas k-7 enviadas.
Mary Hopkin, a maior estrela ao lado do Badfinger, foi vista no programa de TV, “Opportunity Knocks”, onde cantou “Turn Turn Turn”(*), em um domingo, dia 05 de maio de 1968 e indicada a Paul McCartney pela modelo Twiggy.

(*) essa música viria a ser o lado b do compacto com “Those Were The Days” e entrou no primeiro LP “Postcard”, produzido por Paul McCartney, que foram primeiro lugar das paradas de sucesso, disputando com “Hey Jude” dos Beatles.

O Badfinger foi indicado a Mal Evans por um amigo pessoal. E outros vieram por diversas outras indicações.
Tiveram  vários compactos simples, duplos e LPs lançados de 1968 até 1974.
Os LPs resultaram em 14 discos, e em 2010, a Apple Records, resolveu lançar no exterior uma caixa com todos esses discos remasterizados, bônus tracks, mais um CD duplo, chamado “Apple Records”, imitando a capa do “White Album” dos Beatles,
com 37 músicas nunca lançadas antes, e que não entraram nos LPs normais de artistas como: Badfinger, Billy Preston, Jackie Lomax e Mary Hopkin, e um outro CD chamado “Come and Get it  -The Best of Apple”, com os compactos lançados na época, pois algumas bandas e cantores, não chegaram a gravar LPs, e algumas raridades, como por exemplo a polêmica “King of Fuh”, “Goodbye” da Mary Hopkin que saiu apenas em compacto simples, entre várias outras e com um livreto contando a história
de cada compacto, com 16 páginas.
