Had a few listens to Call Me Back Again this afternoon - it's a great song and I like it much better than Oh Darling, even though they are quite similar in style.
Jimmy McCulloch's guitar playing is great on that song - I wonder what he would have done with Oh Darling.

I have to laugh at many of John's quotes, because he would contradict himself many times. I think it had to do with his mood and his relationship to Yoko.

Although he was pretty consistent on his feelings about Abbey Road.

Yeah John always said that about side 2, he just didnt like it, or it was him winding up Paul  ha2ha

Those rehearsal takes are much more my cup of tea - a more laid back feel, with a bit more space to the song.

It was pretty good, wasn't it Peter?  It had a nice live R&B club atmosphere about it.

I cant argue with you. Like i've said before, its not my favorite, but if I want to show somebody how good the Beatles can be, Abbey Road is my go to album.

I've said it before, if you don't compile the medley into a single song on your mp3/i device so they are forced together in any shuffle you are missing out.

Pretty song.  I love Paul's voice here.  I like what he does at 0:45

I'm afraid, but "Abbey Road" never was on my favorite Beatles-album. I guess, it's mostly because you could sense that they were falling apart; it's much more obvious than on the "White Album".

Overall, I just miss the close musical relation between John & Paul. On the other hand, I think that George was at his best then.

My favourite songs are Come together, Because, Octopuss Garden, Something and Here comes the sun. The other songs are like kind of medly and musical-patchwork... hmm, not bad, but I'm just not too enthousiastic about.

This is the exact opposite of why I like it. To me, it was a return to form. They all worked together again (for the most part) and it showed. The White Album was a solo showcase.

Gotta agree with Todd here, Abbey Road sound like a real band album to me, White Album didnt

I think they decided to put all their squabbles aside and make one last great album

To me it's easier to find favourite songs in the White Album, but as a whole I prefer Abbey Road. The former record has too much fillers, while the latter was a brillant swan song.

No, you are wrong. The White Album is much better. Abbey Road is still very good though.

From what I've read it wasn't much different to the White Album. John hardly played or sang on it apart from his own songs.

That's what I mean, John on Abbey Road donates no real corkers or seems very interested at all... on the White Album he's got alot of really good/great songs and contains one of the best group pieces in "Yer Blues".

The White Album is much better.
