Listening to it stripped back to its acoustic simplicity there just reinforces my opinion that it is the equal of "I Will" or "Mother Nature's Son" in its fragile beauty. Beefing it up and electrifying it with Clapton's solo gave it extra gravity and for me it rivals "Back In The USSR" as the mainstay of side one (if not the whole album).

Do me one favor though Mr. M, please give this song a good listen to and see how sloppy it really is. I'd love to hear your opinion about it. Just didnt seem like much care was taken. Maybe they only had Eric for a very short time and did the best they could.

I've played it again tkitna and I stand by my opinion of it as a towering triumph. I guess we all have examples of so-called classics which we can take or leave, this is one of yours it seems.

'Oh come on...it's the bloody White Album'!

A query TK, about Paul's drumming on BITU and DP. We know Ringo left for 2 weeks but is it 100% fact that Macca played drums on both songs?

It sounds like him on BITU but is so 'Ringo' sounding for DP! I've always wondered about that.

While I'm here, my top three White songs are DP, ST and P!!

A year later he palyed some stuff of that kind (Dear prudence,I mean) in his intrumental Kreen-Akrore. Wild drums,hehehehe!

mmmm,i aint said much about the white album,and it is probably my fave beatle album.i'm a fan of diverse,up n down,slow n fast,good n bad records and that is precisely what the white album is.i remember buying my first copy,it would've been maybe 1989 when i was just 14/15 yrs old and i saved up my paper round money,i think it cost me £10.49 on the high street.i knew the album anyway from a cassette borrowed from my older brother.i never listened to anything else for about 3 months.smitten.and i still sometimes get that same feeling when i listen alone now...........aaahh,to be that age again.wide eyed wonder..........and still being inspired by it.

Yeah, I know. I just posted Yellow Submarine and will have 'Let It Be' up in the next few days.
