Let’s hope he works on All Things Must Pass next! ATMP - The Ultimate Collection!
I would KILL for a “raw studio mix” of that album.
Ringo is constantly writing letters to people. No one knows they're from him though. He never signs his name.
He has actually.
“Love and Peace
I've always liked George's Piggies.
I'm reading info about the song on Wikipedia:
While I agree with the first part of the sentence, I don't get this:
What 'subtlety'? Maybe George should be 'politically correct' in this song?
I think he was straight-forward in this nice track - and I remember that Macca once told that George says directly what he thinks.
Piggies start with George singing in normal voice - it sounds like he's telling a story to kids: Have you seen little piggies...
Then, as the song progresses, his vocal gets louder (what they need is damn good whacking!), and in the end, we have the whole choir, singing very loud (or even angry) about piggies having a dinner with their piggie-wives.
Spoiler alert: they eat bacon.
'Politically correct' song would be something like this:
'Everywhere there's lot of CEO's, executives and alikes
You can see them out for dinner with their perfumed wives;
They drink drinks
And eat fine, methinks...'
So... What you get from polit-correct lyrics? It looses all the sharpness of George's original.
I sure would like a "J"
Like BuCo I could not see it either,
I did a right-click on the bad img and opened it in a new tab,
copied it and pasted it here
What you're positing isn't political correctness, exactly. I'd call it lack of poetry -- literalism. He may have been taking a page from Orwell's Animal Farm, too. It's satire, if anything, and I would think that people criticizing the lyric are missing the point.
"Guess I picked the wrong day to quit drinking coffee!"
Could anyone confirm if Junk on Anthology 3 is an Esher Demo ?
It says so in the booklet that came with the CD
not to mention a sense of humor and familiarity with the long tradition of barbed political satire.
I wonder if you play the remixed vinyl backwards if there will be any hidden messages?
"Turn me on Giles man... Turn me on Giles man ... Turn me on Giles man ..."
How do you know he was singing about CEO's?
Maybe he was singing about SHF participants.
His song is much better as it is...because we don't know exactly whom he IS singing about. As John Lennon said, we can each ascribe whatever we want to the lyrics and make it real for us. That doesn't mean that the author necessarily wrote it about who we are thinking of. Remember the hippie guy on John's front lawn who thought Carry that Weight was written about him?
I don't think anything is "brickwalled" - it's just a new "flat" transfer.
NOTE: completely fake
Or for some...
Turn me down Giles...
"I buried Paul... in the mix..."
Maybe if Paul had covered Ringo's kit in flowers, he would have written a few paragraphs.
So is the "Imagine" box great because you've heard it or ........
That would be a lie.
More like I buried John or George's guitars. The bass and the drums are always more prominent in a Giles remix!
How would I know if I hadn't heard it?
I don't claim to be psychic as some on here appear to be.
I'm not the only John Lennon fan I know where I live, I have friends who have the box set, friends who visit me and me them. So yes I've heard it and don't question me again.
