Autumnal Equinox

I'd nearly forgotten about that. We're having a stretch of mid-80s weather here, so I'm trying to ignore the fact that fall is here (even though it's my favorite season) because after fall comes the dreaded ND winter.

ok seeing as you insist  ;D

Im up to the time of Brians death and the time they were working on songs for MMT and YS, incidentally according to Geoff the boys hated the idea of a cartoon film and wanted nothing to do with it, they threw some songs at it that they deemed were not worthy of other releases, thats why Northern Song and All Together Now ended up on there

Johns new song Across The Universe was supposed to be the B side of Lady Madonna but John didnt like his vocal sound so the song was shelved (apart from it being released on a charity album for WWF) Georges The Inner Light made the B side instead (Georges first song on a single)

It appears Geo Martin was very nonplussed with Johns new song Walrus and rolled his eyes when John demo'd it on acoustic, his words were "What do you expect me to do with that ?"

Geoff didnt like the statement and neither did John, it opened up a kind of riff between the boys and GM, they were all keen to work on it (including Geoff) but GM wasnt, he also hated You Know My Name and was dismissive of it

George M I think always kept in mind that the Beatles job was to create hit singles. We sometimes forget that, even after their huge success, there were always considerable demands on the Beatles from EMI to keep churning out product. I think GM was always mindful of spending time on things that didn't work toward that goal. I suppose I can see his point with You Know My Name. With I am the Walrus though it turned out to be one of John's best creations. Can't blame George for occasionally getting it wrong.

That's a great idea too Kev.  I have to admit though, that i'm an idiot and not sure how to upload them as mp3's.  I could probably learn though.

Put it in the dropbox!

Good news - my local record shop (3 miles away - hey! I live in a small place called London in 2014!) had the George albums for £9.99.....APART from 'Wonderwall Music'.....noooooooooooooooooo!

So I picked up the genius that is 'Electronic Sound' and I'll be getting 'Wonderwall' in a few days.

I'm not an audiophile (thank God) so the improved sound goes right over my head (thank God) but it is nice to finally get some sleeve-notes and the look of the package is fantastic.

I'm hoping that this release will go some way to establishing 'Electronic Sound' as an important, and enjoyable, piece of music. Only yesterday I was in my local library and a book on George (I can't remember which one) took four lines to deal with the album, AND called it 'Electronic Sounds'.

He does sound great!  And he's playing with one of the best Beatles tribute bands around.  His dad would be proud.

It's a Beatles song, so I put it in this forum.

Dhani sounds great!

Autumnal Equinox

It's Fall for us right now.  And Spring for those of us who live upside down.  ;)

Doesn't the blood rush to your head?

To me it sounds a lot like

I Need You

both songs could be blended together quite easily

So it does!

The Beatles - I Need You (HD)

I Need You was recorded 15–16 February 1965 and Tell Me What You See on 18 February 1965.

Hi Bleen
The reason I think it sounds more like Paul is it reminds me of his solo in Taxman

Wonderful bass lines in this song as well
According to my reference it was George. John played piano. It recounts an anecdote that the people in the studio revved George to turn his amp up.

But I agree it sounds like a Paul solo to me. More busy than melodic

Apparently this was the last recording session before Yoko made herself a fixture in the studio. It was by all accounts a happy session that went better than anyone expected.

John also tried to get this released as a single instead of lady Madonna.
