Isn't SofineSunshine implying that they DID set the organ up onstage thru '66, only to ignore it during "I'm Down"? (Whether that's true or not)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Has any male here ever seriously tried to keep up with Paul's singing on "I'm Down"? I'm a tenor and have pretty good high notes but Paul's stamina is really in a league of its own. One of his best vocals.

I don't think it's unusual for a band to want to be less restrained live than in the studio, at least while they still had the heart to not just go through the motions. Also take into consideration how many studio takes of "I'm Down" they tried before arriving at a master. (Don't know how many they did offhand, suppose I could look it up...)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney
