Instant Karma is Phil Spector’s best sounding Beatle job…
I love mono, too…but, the wall of sound is just mush.
What would P.O.B. or All Things Must Pass sounded like from George Martin?
(And no firearms…yeah!)
Love the colour pic. Remember being blown away by it when I got the “Telecasts” bootleg back in the late 70s
Agreed, A Car… So bohemian. Had a poster of this proudly displayed in my 1st apartment.
Great overall look for John and those amber shaded glasses
Re: My comment above…
I meant to say: Instant Karma is Phil Spector’s best SOLO Beatle job.
His best accomplishment of all time is the Let It Be album. He performed real magic on a bad bunch of tapes. The strings/choir on The Long And Winding Road are EXACTLY what that song needed. I think it’s the high point of his efforts. But, Paul won’t admit it…Phil did a great job. Without him, we’d have one less album!
@Kwai: I must respectfully disagree re: “The Long and Winding Road”. Such a simple, sweet song (melody). I have always thought it better without the “lushness”. Especially the choir. Just an opinion, but I like the (unPhil) “Let it Be… Naked” version. However, what you say about us having one less album without Spector’s work, is probably true. Cheers…
Thank you. I know I jabber a lot…but, I love the group…and I think about them quite a lot. But, although they are gone, I still think of them like they were here. In truth, talking about them with others who love them as much as I do is as good as it gets(for me, anyway)!
PS- I can still remember the day my brother brought the new album home. It was a huge moment. We didn’t know they were broken up. We played that that think non-stop for a month. It was as much a Beatle record as any. Spector performed a miracle…the album is magical.
we played that THING for a month.
(I get excited when typing about the Beatles)
I must say, ‘Let it be naked’ is my go to album now, tho I still have a soft spot for the original album.
Returning to “Instant Karma”, the little bit just before the last chorus where John goes, “ah…” is probably one of the best single seconds of recorded music.
