Anyone read Rob Sheffield's Dreaming the Beatles? It's goddamn wonderful.
I like The Beatles also, I like Follow The Sun, you can hear The Beatles played on Metro 2 Radio, why don’t we have a Radio Forum in order to discuss Radio stations?.
Paul McCartney: I Masturbated With John Lennon Once, Maybe Twice
Could have went the rest of my life without knowing that information.
Been on a massive Beatles kick recently. Where can I hear the mono versions? I only have whatever Apple Music has.
No mono albums on any streaming services as of yet (Except their 1 album) I had to download mine through other means.
remix of the white album is out today along with the Esther House demos (acoustic versions worked out at George's House right after India) and some other random outtakes. pretty cool.
The amount of outtakes that exist from the band's career overwelms me, I definitely want to hear all these though
Love the 12 minute blues jam that Helter Skelter started out as. Big fan of the esher demo of Yer Blues as well.
the esher while my guitar gently weeps really shows john and paul as being dumb as hell for not appreciating it until george brought clapton in
While true, they all hated each other's guts at this point, which I feel is probably more to blame than them having a tin ear.
Same reason Lennon shit on every song Paul ever made in the Playboy and Rolling Stone interviews.
That’s been disproved my multiple people that they did not hate each other’s guts.
there absolutely were fractures in the group. ringo and george each quit multiple times haha
I'm going to dive into the White Album 50th Anniversary tracks, and I see that Sgt Peppers has a 50th Anniversary Edition with alternate takes as well, but I can't tell if any earlier albums have recent deluxe editions like that. Anyone know?
sgt. pepper's was the first
Are there any others coming out? I love the two re-releases so far. They both sound incredible.
i imagine they're gonna try to do this with abbey road. beyond that idk
There's a lot to unpack on this, very cool.
what’s everyone’s favorite white album song? i can’t choose between yer blues/while my guitar gently weeps/rocky raccoon.
I've always loved Happiness and Helter Skelter the most, but seem to be one of the few people who LOVES Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey. There's so many great songs though, I couldn't really pick favorites
Back In The USSR and Dear Prudence are probably my favorites. Helter Skelter too.
Listened to the Esher Demos for the first time yesterday and wow. Especially enjoyed, USSR, Prudence, Junk, and Happiness is a Warm Gun.
First time I listened to Back in the USSR was in my friends car about 15 years ago. MJ came along for the ride and we legit thought something was wrong with his car. Turns out it was part of the song lol
that song fucking owns
The Rock and Roll Circus version ruined the Beatles version of Yer Blues for me, so probably Helter Skelter.
