I "ALMOST" wish Revolution 9 was not released on the White Album!

;sorry , really I do wish they did not release it on the album!  It could have been a hidden gem, like "What's The New Mary Jane".

Yeah, but we needed something to play backwards.  For the "clues."   ;D

One of my books said that #9 is a long drawn out version of #!! I've never been able to hear it though!

It's a long drawn out version of torture.  :o

I think I first got the White Album in 1976/77. At about the same time I was reading the book about Manson, 'Helter Skelter'.  So Rev 9 always evokes this creepy vibe as the album and Manson were 'linked' in a tragic way

Eeeuw; I know! As a very late Beatles fan, I didn't get into the White Album until about 1990, and I read Helter Skelter shortly thereafter. The book nearly ruined the album for me, especially after reading that one of Manson's favorite song is the beautiful (to me) "I Will."

I think I'm glad I never read that book, for a lot of reasons! I remember when that happened or else it was the trial. Whenever it was, I heard them talking about it on TV and it really frightened me.

I've taken to listening to some musique concrete at work. I find it makes for background music that doesn't distract me from things and acts as a sound barrier to people talking etc near my office.

One thing I'd have to say. As musique concrete, Revolution 9 actually holds up pretty well against other examples in the genre.

Agree completely.
