They could have easily released John's Real Love demo, as heard on the John Lennon Anthology set, no problems.

When I put Anthology 2 on my iPod I replaced the released version with the demo. That's how much I like it.

Now here's a song using predominantly the D minor chord with a few B flats and G minors and seagulls which made it big a year before...


I didn't know you liked The Shagri-Las, Barry. ;)

Maybe this was a popular format outside the U.S. Dunno.

My ex-brother-in-law had a bunch of reel-to-reels and a player that he had with him during the war in Vietnam. They did make it back when he came home but who knows if he still has them now.

Its never been one of my favorites either.  I always though it was kind of monotonous and boring.


Yeah.  It's been touted as a song without chord changes but it alternates between C major and B flat major.  Ringo's drumming pattern is spectacular though.  And I'm pretty sure those are seagulls.

It was one of those strange periods when I didn't have a record player (visiting my dad in SoCal - a great place to be when "Sgt. Pepper's...' was released), but I did have a reel-to-reel, and I got those two albums.

I just took a look and The Beatles albums were put out in that format straight through to 'Abbey Road' - odd but true. Maybe this was a popular format outside the U.S. Dunno.

Anyway, prices on Ebay range from $50 on up to a few hundred. Interesting.

We had a reel to reel machine. I don't remember listening to music on it but somewhere out there (probably in a landfill) is a tape of me reciting nursery rhymes.

I found it thrilling when it was first out. Listened over and over. Had the album on the rarest format I know of, reel-to-reel tape. An official Capitol release, with the proper cover art on the box. I'll bet it would be quite the collector's item now. I think I had 'Sgt. Pepper's...' on reel-to-reel too. A little fuzzy on that - need to clean the old tape heads.

 :P

That must be why the grownups always discouraged jumping on beds. We did it anyway and amazingly without these results!

I can understand that but for some reason I like it. I guess it's more that the song, for me, is a very tangible marker of the the way they had changed during that period. It actually makes me laugh because Revolver was notably absent from my sister's collection of Beatles albums. I can picture her listening to it at some friend's house and the look on her face when she heard this! I think she sort of passed the Beatles torch on to my brother at this time.
