23rd June 1966, The Beatles had their tenth consecutive UK No.1 single with 'Paperback Writer' / 'Rain'. The track is marked by the boosted bass guitar sound throughout, partly in response to John Lennon demanding to know why the bass on a certain Wilson Pickett record far exceeded the bass on any Beatles records. It was also cut louder than any other Beatles record, due to a new piece of equipment used in the mastering process.

An awesome song, one of my favorites.  I believe it is overlooked, as many of the singles are over time because they weren't on albums too.

I've mentioned it many times but the harmonizing and using their voices as instruments is incredible.

Do I recall that in an earlier post it was said that Paul played the lead guitar on this one too?!

There seems to be a bit of discrepency over who played what Dave.

This video, however, answers the question as to who played lead guitar on Paperback Writer...

Love this song, one of my absolute favorites by the Beatles. I like the harmonized a capella intro and then the segue into the musical part. The whole song is good!

As I remember it the echo effects at the end of the verses was very controversial at the time! Little did they know what was coming!!!  ;D

That mashup of Paperback Writer and Tomorrow Never Knows was pretty well done!
