What was it that people loved so much about the pre-fab four? I think it was the trousers. But while mysteries may surround the appeal of Rutland's favorite sons, there's no mystery about the appeal of Lorne Michaels' epic Monty Python collaboration and Beatles tribute known as: THE RUTLES. Of course, plans were also in the works from the actual Beatles, starting with some new, optimistic compositions from George Harrison that signaled the coming of a follow-up to his successful Thirty Three & 1/3 album. As a refreshed, upbeat George commands his problems to blow away, Ringo Starr was setting his own sights on a reversal of fortune - choosing the songs which would comprise a new record...and a new TV Special. His comeback plans were ambitious, but a determined Ringo was not going to let the underperforming Ringo The 4th LP be the end of his hit-making in the 1970's. The Lennons, meanwhile, were dealing with a different kind of determination -- a terrorist organization which had been targeting John and Yoko for some time in an elaborate extortion scheme which necessitated the involvement of the FBI. All this on the eve of a new Wings album release - heralded by another monster hit single from Paul & co.: With A Little Luck
