No, you're wrong, it's a photomontage. It's a very nice work of art but it's not from the fifties. Here's the artist's comment :

"This is my new photoshop piece based on Strawberry Fields Forever .... I've seen the old photo of Lennon on his bike and thought of placing him outside the gate in Liverpool and this is the result .... from numerous photo sources (ie: different head, clothes and even the bike and what the tower could have looked like way back when taken from a much graffiti 2011 photo )"

I've got three addresses now (Bobber, Klang and ibanez_ax). I'm trying to get these CDs on the mail in a day or two, so if anyone else would like to exchange CDs, let me know and pass me your address...

This is an ok song. Nothing too great. The fuzz bass I'm sure seemed like a good idea at the time but comes across as a bit gimmicky now. Which is unusual for Beatle recording choices.

There's some decent moments in it though, particularly with the harmonies.

Even though George is my favourite Beatle, this would struggle to get in my Beatles Top 150, but then I've always viewed 'Rubber Soul' less sympathetically than most.....I plan to re-evaluate this next December.

The 'Beatles Monthly' Poll of 1983 had 'Think For Yourself' at joint 133 with 'Revolution 1' and (the much more enjoyable) 'Thank You Girl'.

Painfully average song in my opinion.  The fuzz bass irritates me after awhile.  Its not a bad song, just mediocre for the lads.

Think For Yourself

Later, when we made Sgt. Pepper, I remember taking it round to Dylan at the Mayfair Hotel in London; I went round as if I were going on a pilgrimage.  Keith Richards was in the outer room and we had to hang around and then we went in to meet Dylan.  It was a little bit like an audience with the Pope.  I remember playing him some of Sgt. Pepper and he said "Oh, I get it - you don't want to be cute any more."  That was the feeling about Rubber Soul, too.  We'd had our cute period and now it was time to expand.

    Paul McCartney

On 8 November 1965, The Beatles entered EMI Studio Two at 9:00 PM to record George's composition entitled Won't Be There With You.  After a bit of rehearsal, they needed only one take to record the rhythm track which included George on electric rhythm guitar, Paul on bass guitar, Ringo on drums and John on organ.

The Beatles now set about recording overdubs, the lead and harmony vocals being recorded first.  That night, George Martin kept a tape rolling to record The Beatles as they perfected their vocals...

The Beatles - "Beatle Speech" ("Think For Yourself" - Vocal Overdubbing Session)

Apparently, John had the most trouble with his vocals prompting him to say "I'm sorry, sometimes I feel less than useless at these sessions, I really do.  Of course, Cynthia understands.  I often talk to her about it when we get home.  I say, 'Sometimes, you know, Cynthia, I just can’t get the note.'"

Paul played his newly-acquired Rickenbacker 4001S at this session.  He decided to repeat his bassline using a Tone Bender to produce a fuzz tone effect. 

The double bassline served as lead guitar for the song which was renamed Think For Yourself by the time The Beatles finished their session at 3:00 AM.  Mono and stereo mixing was done on 9 November at the EMI Studios.

Here is the original mono recording...

The tape of the vocals rehearsal is also interesting in that a short section of the tape at 10:52 was used in the movie Yellow Submarine when Old Fred asks The Beatles to revive the Lord Mayor of Pepperland with a song after he had been apple-bonked...

And you’ve got time to rectify...to rectify...to rectify

Do I hear music?

John Lennon - Hammond RT-3 Organ, Harmony Vocals

I have a couple finished.  Burned some extra copies and tested one in the truck tonight.  Besides the track listing being backwards, everything worked fine.   ha2ha  If my truck plays them, they should play anywhere.  Sorry if any of the songs are repeats from previous CD's some of you might have gotten, but I cant remember.

Since Klang is new to this, I will be sending him a couple CD's of my favorites.  Everybody else should already have those from the last time.
