Cheers for that. They both have full recollection of the whole weekend that it took to film those couple of minutes of the film. There were mealtimes and everyone all sat together, my mum had lunch sitting and chatting to Paul McCartney. She still has to this day a small photo of the Beatles which was personally signed by all 4 of them, she keeps it with the record that has a picture of them on it.

It's all about the French horn.

Nothing they wrote comes close to Love's Forever Changes, and i suspect they knew it.

Arthur Lee described the Beatles as his 'heroes'...

I've tried and tried to listen to it. I just don't get it.

I've tried as well, and bar Alone Again Or I can't get into it.

Having said that, it's worth getting hold of one of the reissues of the album and hearing one of the bonus "tracks" where Arthur Lee makes his bandmates play the intro to a song over and over until they got it right. The man was a perfectionist, borderline OCD.

Great album but Rolling Stone has several Beatles albums above this in their all time greatest list but everyone has their own views.

By co-incidence today's Guardian has ranked the Beatles' singles. Strawberry Fields takes the number one slot. The promo film for this was filmed in Knole Park in Sevenoaks including bits for the promo film of the 'B' side Penny Lane, although I think it was sold as a double 'A' side single.

'For No One' is indeed a wonderful song.

A few weeks back there was a concert to celebrate 50 years of Abbey Road. Done by members of a mixture of Aussie band members. Spider Bait. Silver chair and a fee others. It was brilliant. In a small theatre. If it ever gets to the UK go.

It was brilliant because the beetles weren't playing. Any beetles song is instantly improved when played by someone else.

Still think you"re a grouch .

I still think I don't care what you think. xx

Sometimes, it's worth listening to someone else's version of their songs to really appreciate the genius of The Beatles.





El Aguila 27-09-2019 05:00 PM

I don't particularly like the Doors - about the same as the Beatles, really. Peace Frog is funnier than Yellow Submarine, though.
Love, however, are the dog's bollocks.
