I just love sgt.peppersheart

But i like A Day In The Life very much. It´s one of my favourite songs. 

And Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds is also a very good song. a-hard-days-night-john-6

If folks want to hear the pepper tracks in a new light you should listen to the reconstructed isolated tracks from Rockband currently being posted here. Its more than simply the isolated tracks as extracted from the Rock Band game.

Ringo's drumming is so damn mindblowing, i could listen to Ringo's parts for ages and im not a big fan of drums only. You get to hear some incredible things, the rhythm track of Pepper (reprise) is amazingly hypnotic, the Lowrey organ in Lucy is beautiful, the lead guitar in Fixing A Hole. Plus you get to hear beatle talk otherwise hidden.

Paulsbass said, "Again I can't reply to Intotheskywithdiamonds. Something wrong or different with your account?"

 

Didn't realize that was a problem particular to my posts! The extra-terrestrials from my book may be trying to get even with me.

In any case, as you can tell, I usually just cut and paste.

 

I have an entire music book devoted to Paul's bass lines (actually, a rather thin book of a dozen songs).

Any other rock bassists have books devoted to their bass lines?

Anyway, yes, the bass lines in Sgt Pepper are remarkable. Take away the bass from many of these songs, and they'd still sound OK - but they'd feel flat.

I remember when I first listened to the album; sometime in the mid-last part of 2011; I didn't really get it at the time.. after some reading as to why the album is considered so widely acclaimed, and quite a bit more listening, I ended up 'getting' it. I can't really accurately determine my plays by iTunes, because I listen on YouTube a lot, as well as my iPad, which do have plays..

Fixing A Hole has the most plays and Reprise has the least. Granted, I didn't choose for the songs to appear when they did; it's just that shuffle doesn't really even out the music correctly. I remember my 'kick' with Fixing A Hole, that is, playing it over and over and over.. It was the biggest of any of the songs on Pepper, most likely. I have memories of realizing how much I really liked GMGM, though; I started keeping track after a while so it's easier to know which ones I like the most out of the 200 some they wrote.. 

Following along with Zig's old derail.. my top plays on songs are quite relevant to my favorites, for the most part. This is of the Beatles, by the way.. Shuffle dictated these, but I dictated whether I finished listening or not.. because it doesn't count as a play unless you listen to the whole thing.

1. Fixing A Hole
2. I've Just Seen A Face 
3. Drive My Car
4. Lovely Rita
6. Savoy Trufle
7. I'm Only Sleeping (take one and rehearsal are in the 20's..)
8. Here, There, and Everywhere
9. Norwegian Wood
10. Tomorrow Never Knows

So, what have we learned? Paul's catalogue in Pepper is often overlooked. I find Fixing A Hole and Lovely Rita to be among the best they did. 

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.

Are any of the tracks available elsewhere? The blog just got shut down a few days ago.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

They are out there as cd's, which is why the blog was closed (bootleggers selling the tracks for profit so i can understand why but Helter Skelter's work was exceptional and its a shame so many wont hear what he did and was going to do) and download links will exist but i have no idea where and havent seen them anywhere.

Sorry.

Thought this was quite interesting. 

From Allan F. Moore's 1997 study on Sgt Pepper:

"In comparison to the £400 expended on their first album, Sgt. Pepper cost £25,000 to make; and yet the Beatles still saw only a little under 8 1/2 per cent of the takings, compared to more than 47 per cent to EMI, nearly 30% to retailers and nearly 16% per cent in tax to the Government.

Allan Klein soon saw to that. He certainly got results for his clients.

The Government got 16% off the top, then also got 19 to George's 1 after distribution to the Lads? That's highway robbery!a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-john-7a-hard-days-night-paul-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

I suppose this should go here. 

A look back by Ultimate Classic Rock at the 'Sgt. Pepper' musical that debuted Off-Broadway 40 years ago.
