    I probably already mentioned it earlier in the thread, but the single of Got to Get You Into My Life has added compression and reverb compared to the 1976 album mix. It's probably the mix that was played on the radio back then since I believe it was also like that on the promo 45.

    My recollection is that they all had the channels reversed. I just spot checked "Get Back" and "Revolution" and confirmed those two were reversed. Later tonight I should have some time for some further comparisons.

    Yep..caught George here....being a Beatles fan himself, despite all of his seventies fussing in interviews about being a Beatle. George’s hair looked cool in this era I always thought.

    I’m telling you, I remember those great old SNL seventies Beatles jokes and they were indeed hilarious and all the Beatles went along with it..at least George and ringo did and by the later story, John and Paul almost went along with the offer to perform in SNL...yes, it’s a pity that those old great days of great comedy are now gone due to possibly many reasons but sensitivity maybe being one of them. The Beatles were always the first to laugh at themselves.

    George may have fussed but he made it very plainly clear in at least one interview I recall hearing on my trusty AM/FM Philco/Ford tabletop radion sometime in the mid-70's in which he stated that he'd be prepared to "knock down some doors" with John Lennon anytime.

    He started the band but afterwards they were a group, not John’s band per se but a band with no frontman, they all said in interviews, though in the early days John was definitely noted to be the leader by all in the group.... However as a member of the group, despite his going to art school, Lennon was definitely qualified to be consulted on the rock n roll album.

    Yes, by the mid seventies, George was more willing period for the right price to reunite. All of his early seventies never being in a band with Paul talk went out the window by the time the Beatles started getting the huge offers to reunite.

    I asked for it for my 8th birthday in 1976 - great to read that a couple of others were exactly the same age in that year. I wondered why there was a 50's vibe to the inside cover (later on, when I learned more about American culture) but I really liked the cover artwork. This double album was the one where I realised what the 12-bar blues were (musically and lyrically, with repeated chords and repeated lyrics lines such as those in 'Matchbox'). People forget that some of us got into the band in the 1970's because we were born later. I didn't go out and buy all of their albums in a box set, which would have been logical. I got them into my life in a bigger way when I started to look for most of their original 60's vinyl (beaten up, but I didn't care) in thrift shops (record fairs were too expensive for me), then waited till the CD's became cheap in the 80's to do that.

    A fan club in the early seventies was selling some of the Astrid 8x10s photos from her negatives for $10 a piece and I bought and own a few. George encouraged her then to sell some of her prints to help her financially and she did. I would have bought more, but $10 per pic was a lot to me as a young teen in the early seventies.

    It has to be one of the all time worst album covers for any compilation by any artist; the one for Reel Music is up there as well. You may or may not know, John offered to design a cover for the R and R album but the geniuses at Capitol turned him down.

    VJ should have used this shot right here for Introducing The Beatles (if, in fact, it was at their disposal). That album cover features the all time worst photograph of them.

    I'm going to put this question out there again...did the blue album use the exact same mix for their stereo Revolution as appears on Hey Jude and Rock and Roll? Why does it sound so flat and lifeless as compared to the latter two? The U.S. pressing of "blue", in fact, is the only one in which the song sounds so "dead"...truly sounds like "ice cream" as John once said.

    Almost like Capitol was doing a Beach Boys Endless Summer, Spirit of America thing with a colored drawing or illustration for a cover. Those were popular about that time.
