Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

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

Basically its broken down so you can hear the elements that went into making the song. This will be derived from the Rock Band multitracks (and a few other places - Anthology, making of Pepper, Love etc). It may even be taken from the Pepper isolations done by Helter Skelter and released on his blog. It is a very cool listen and well worth spending the time on.

You now can work your way a whole number of tracks piece by piece going from the basic rhythm track (or even just Ringo's drums), via alternate mixes, until reaching the final released product as signed off by Martin and the four back in the 60's.

An example could be Come Together as shown below.

Come Together (Take 1) 
Come Together (Take 4 Ending + Take 5 Announcement) (Mono Mix)
Come Together ('Abbey Road' Studio Outtake #1)  
Come Together ('Abbey Road' Studio Outtake #1) (Mono Mix) 
Come Together ('Abbey Road' Studio Outtake #2) (Mono Mix) 
Come Together (Take 6 Track 1: Bass Guitar)
Come Together (Take 6 Track 2: Electric Guitar)
Come Together (Take 6 Track 3: Drums) 
Come Together (Take 6 Track 4: Partial Vocals)
Come Together (Take 6 - Rhythm Track with Guide Vocal)
Come Together (SI onto Take 9 Track 4: Lead Vocal) 
Come Together (SI onto Take 9 Track 8: Backing Vocals) 
Come Together (SI onto Take 9 Tracks 5 & 7: Electric Piano & Guitar Overdub)
Come Together (SI onto Take 9 Track 6: Lead Guitar & Maracas) 
Come Together (SI onto Take 9 Tracks 4 & 8: 'Clean' Lead Vocal & Backing Vocals)
Come Together (Take 9 - Faders 1 - 7: 'Single Tracked Vocal&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 
Come Together (BRX - Stereo Vocal Mix) 
Come Together (2009 Stereo Remix)
Come Together (1969 Abbey Road

There's a thread on how to isolate recording tracks here, but I couldn't find a single place where people have shared interesting examples. It can be merged if I've overlooked a thread somewhere.

Here are the isolated vocals from I Am The Walrus. I found the most interesting/entertaining bit not to be Lennon's, which are easy enough to make out on the record, but the "Oompah oompah" sounds at the end. Give it a listen.

The following people thank Joe for this post:

And we can't really have something from Abbey Road and ignore the medley, can we? Here are the isolated vocals:

There are loads of isolated vids out there, presumably mostly taken from the Rock Band stem files. It's not worth trying to post everything, but feel free to add interesting stuff you've come across.

Of the isolations I've always been fascinated by Ringo's drums and love listening to them. One of the most obvious would be from A Day In The Life but Revolution i adore as its so damn solid. God the man could drum.

Was also listening to the isolated Something tracks and had always thought the drums were pretty ordinary and easy but they are not. 

I could listen to Ringo playing drums for hours and sit there all goggle-eyed with a big grin over my face. 

Forgot about when Oh! Darling goes into the middle eight (or whatever its called - the "when i told you bit") Ringo goes nuts.

I'm with you there. Nobody realizes how steady he is. He's a very good drummer. That was one of the reasons that Phil Collins was influenced by Ringo.

I'm listening to hours and hours these deconstructions of songs by The Beatles. So far, my favorite is to Don't let me down. Because in it, everything is perfect! The drums, guitars, vocals and bass ... I've loved this song, after I saw this deconstruction started to like her even more!heart
