"Hey Jude" so different from "White Album"
« on: October 13, 2007, 01:19:51 AM »

I find it hard to believe that "Hey Jude" was recorded during the making of The White Album.  "Hey Jude" is so Beatles - all four in one studio, crisp music and vocals, all done on a grand scale.

In contrast, The White Album is low-key, largely acoustic, with all four Beatles doing their portions of songs in separate studios as opposed to together.  

Can you imagine how The White Album would be if "Hey Jude" was a part of the track list?  From what I understand, the song was recorded at Twink Studios, while the rest of the album was done at Abbey Road, maybe that had a part of why "Hey Jude" sounded so different.

It was recorded at Trident, which might have something to do with it. And contrary to popular belief, the recording of The White Album was not a completely inharmonious affair. John was probably happy because it was about his son. And sometimes, all band members are needed in the studio at the same time.

And 'largely acoustic' is a bit of a sweeping statement, isn't it? You're saying that the majority of the album is acoustic? I count six songs. That's 20%. A Lot for them, granted, but that's still 24 songs that aren't acoustic.

How funny....I think it fits right in. Compare the tambourine-augmented rhythm section, the backing vocals and the overall groove, to "Dear Prudence" (a song with its own terrific "dam-burst" toward the end, when it goes into half-time) and even "Sexy Sadie" (with its underrated, lovely bridge) and "Cry, Baby, Cry."
Just my 2K, but at least I'm speaking as a drummer, so maybe that's what I'm focusing on.

Paul's great vocal improvisation during the cresendo and fade of Jude is a stand-out performance

Are you serious???? But then again, you do describe Love Me Do as "soft rock" and Tomorrow Never Knows as "John's crazy stuff" so I guess you have your own unique method of music catagorisation. Quite sweet really.
Hey Jude would have made a great album closer, so much better than the poor Goodnight.

When did the Beatles record Hey Jude on TV?? Was it before, during, or After the recording of the White Album? did they hate each other yet??

I remember it being debuted on American Network tv (CBS) on "The Smothers Brother Comedy Hour" in late 1968. That's the first time I saw it.

I reckon the difference with hey jude and the white album is that it was  a single,and the betales knew that they had to put out a single that would be chart friendly.

If you'd rather be serious go to the Current Affairs thread.

i like talking about them and their music too, but i thought this was a little unnecessary.
yes i know talking about the beatles won't affect my life but some of the discussions are very interesting so i love reading them.
okay anyway i'm sorry. just ignore my post.

i personally love to hear the demos more than the actual White Album to be
honest! there's just something special about them..they are too good to be
demos! :)
