Is that really Paul playing the lead intro? If it is bummer, no wonder George didn't want to be in the band anymore. I still like the song but wish Paul had more charity twords his freind George.
I remember one thing fans didn't like back in 66 was the echo effects on the vocal. They thought it was gimmicky!

Although I always knew this song it wasn't until I saw the promos on YouTube that I fell in love with it. Then I finally heard the frère jacques lines and that really did it! There's just so much going on in it with the vocals and the great bass line. And I agree; it begs to be turned up!

Sounds like someone came in a little early, @1:50, LOL. I listened to this several times, willing my brain not to fill in the spaces but it never worked! It's fun to listen to these.

Very cool~ Did you noticed Pauls swollen mout  and broken teeth? I think it was a motor bike accident. Also, at about 1:50 I think I hear a false early start from Paul.

One of my (many) favorites! Interestingly, Geoff Emerick's account of Paul first presenting this to the band is wildly different than what's been posted here. Emerick says Paul came into the studio, sat at the piano, and said something like "Gather 'round boys, and have a listen to our next single!" I'm paraphrasing a bit here, but Emerick goes on to say how John shoots a jealous sideward glance at Paul, how he felt threatened because he of course wanted to write the singles, etc etc.

While I think his book is interesting and informative on the technical aspects of the recordings, it is very obviously biased towards Paul. The way he presents Ringo is just awful, too.

I remember Geoff Emerick's account of Paul introducing "Paperback Writer." Didn't John come in with "Rain" that same day?

And I agree with you BLEEN, Emerick's book was great, but the bias toward Paul was 'way too clear for my taste.

The best think that happened to John was Paul and the best thing that happened to Paul was John, they needed each other, I think Geoff & George Martin always will big up Paul much more than John

Hi Normandie. Rain isn't mentioned as being presented the same day, but GE does say that the same recording technique was used for the bass track, in which he used a speaker as a mic!
