    Obrigado, tanto mucho…que can eat it Eric Idle

  2. George is pretty angry. Guess Yoko got a hold of another digestive biscuit.

    LOL, Johnny. Or maybe some caviar left to rot in the Apple ‘fridges. Regardless, those are some somber Beatles.

    And now…the architects sketch!

    Very nice shot. New one for me. By the way, none of them were exactly laughing their asses off on the cover of “Beatles For Sale” back in 1964.

    Something in the way she moves him away from the band

  7. they look tired on BFS cover in comparison to this pic

    Paul looks baked. Maybe he didn’t tell them that this weed was different.
    (It was from California)

    Was it in the nems site,as per “your poster wish”post link thing..never seen it as large ( by linda presumably..rush job for single.

  11. When John initially took the song to Paul’s house to work on he knew both G+R were unavailable. did John really not want to wait for them to return because he was impatient. Or did John want a more “relaxed” recording approach because he was concerned that the bad Let It Be band vibes among the four of them – a fresh wound – were still around.

    Or maybe both.

    Paul’s spirited participation is baffling.
    I would have expected veto powers from him.
    Why is Paul so enthusiastic?
    Brotherly support for his favorite chum?
    How did Paul go from being the group’s best PR member…to using the ‘group’ to help promote Unfinished Music makers? Those long battles to prove Sainthood sure could have used such bass and drums. Despite Let It Be gloominess, I know Paul wanted John to be happy in life. But, this song could have been much more in its element as the B-side to Give Peace A Chance. The song ROCKS…but, the lyrics are way less Beatle than Old Brown Shoe.
    It’s just strange. Maybe, Klein had Paul squirming…so he was anxious!
    Great question, Johnny!

  13. Thanks Kwai. We’ve all heard the stories that when the 4 of them were in the studio together during that period the chances for a bad “vibe” increased versus only 3 (or less) of them together. So maybe John…ahh who the hell knows.

    Paul’s a fine drummer, but Ringo’s absense on this track and Back In The USSR were sorely missed. And I prefer Emerick’s “in your face” approach to recording as opposed to the sound on this track. The track sounds like a demo Pete Townshend could’ve knocked off.

  14. btw point taken about the lyrics being nonBeatley – John’s heading out the door. cue Paul singing Those Wedding Bells Are Breaking Up That Old Gang of Mine :-)

    Remember that this was recorded in April ’69, released in May, and the Plastic Ono Band didn’t appear until ‘Give Peace A Chance’ in July. So at the time, John’s only musical outlet was the Beatles. Plus, John wanted it recorded and out immediately, as he did with ‘Instant Karma’ and ‘Sometime in New York City’. With George out of the country and Ringo filming ‘Magic Christian’, he just went without them.

    And according to Wikipedia, Yoko has said, “Paul knew that people were being nasty to John, and he just wanted to make it well for him. Paul has a very brotherly side to him.”

  16. If it were ’66 than maybe John would’ve waited around for G+R to return. By ’69 he clearly felt the band was not working in the way he wanted it to. Nurk Twins rule.

    They look an unhappy bunch.

  18. Kwai Chang says:

    Thanks to George…
    they look like The Gumby’s(Monty Python skit).
    Maybe they’ll release The Green Album, soon.
    And, now, for something completely married…
    A cellar full of Rutles!

    Ah, The Fab Five in 1969…..

  20. Alex of Bronx says:

    Maybe John was scared George was going to punch him again…
    Is that actually true ? Did George actually take a swing @ John during Let It Be ?
    Were the camera’s rolling if it is true ?
