"Have The Beatles gone?"
no there here!!
This sounds amazing. Which songs does it cover? "You Never Give Me Your Money" to "The End?" The full MEDLEY??
From Anthology 3 and not on the probaly AR box set:
All Things Must Pass (Demo)
Old Brown Shoe (Demo)
Octopus Garden (Takes 2 and 8)
Maxwell´s Silver Hammer (Take 5)
Come Together (Take 1)
Come and Get It
Ain´t She Sweet
The End (remix with chord of A Day in The Life)
Looks like this one will be on the box set
..but mine is quite a clear statement anyway, honey. Isn’t it?
Besides, 2019 digital LPs or singles are pointless and a rip off, to me.
This or an overdubbed version of the same demo. Hope for the latter.
It would make more sense for them to include an overdubbed version, as we already have the other version on Anthology 3.
23 different vinyl colors?? [corresponding with each picture sleeve?]
It is likely this will be a separate Blu-ray audio. That would be fair. I would buy just that.
A stereo You Know My Name??
We already got one on Anthology.... [although it was edited differently..]
It’s similar but not the same notes.
I don’t see what the hubbub over this outro is. It is very repetitive. Including a few bars would have been interesting but it’s not a revelation. It’s just the same thing going on for an extra two minutes. The song reached a proper end before the piano outro so I’m not confident it was supposed to be part of the song, anyway. It’s just Lennon playing a short piano riff repeating it as nauseam. Calling it an ending jam is sort of misleading. There is other meandering instrumental accompaniment but the meat of it is the repeating piano riff. Just what am I missing here?
That all being said, the Take 37 mix is interesting in and of itself.
I really, really wish digital downloads & the book were included in the vinyl "deluxe" set. I'm not a fan at all of having to buy both to get everything that's being offered. To the point of where I probably won't and will just settle on one or the other.
Actually, the Something orchestration is not a composition by Martin, but a composition by Harrison. With an arrangement by G. Martin... so.. no, he would not be getting songwriting royalties for that.
Yep. There are at least two versions of “A Huge Medley” out there.
Yes, that was the working title before it was changed to "The End".
I thought it was just the two halves.
Ah, right. We actually just reached the first floor.
Yes with some beautiful alternate background harmonies if I correctly recall. Will have to give this a re listen!
Hmm. Assuming the leaked contents for AR@50 is correct and complete, call me a bit underwhelmed. Not a single uncirculated demo? No session busks or rehearsals? Goodbye? Actually quite happy to have that one, but no remixed Come And Get It? Seems odd. Can't wait to hear the decision-making regarding these two songs. I'm guessing the Who Slapped John/Be Bop A Lula busk was not as good as Lewisohn thought. Don't get me wrong, I'll love listening to anything previously unreleased, but this one seems a bit rushed. Certainly compared to the WA@50 set which had many surprises. Oh well, we gladly except the offer Apple/Universal! Ron
Thankfully, I don't listen to circulating demos, for the most part, so this box will be 90% new/unheard to me.
I also don't see the correlation between "not what you hoped" and "seems a bit rushed." I think they've done an excellent job on the other 50th sets with regards to outtakes. I have no reason to believe this will be any different.
Thank you!! And, while we all have your attention, (and you certainly have OURS) any McCartney Archive Editions in your crystal ball? (Love your avatar btw)
