Originally this was a two post thread titled "Hey Jude bassline." Post 86 was in that thread today.

OK. I found it. Not sure this needed its own topic (if a mod wants to move it somewhere it belongs, that's fine, I just couldn't find it), but it's important. You guys know that awesome bassline in the nananas of the LOVE version of Hey Jude? I love that, but I could not for the life of me find it anywhere in any Beatles song. So I gave up. Anyway, today I was listening to Past Masters and as Hey Jude faded out, guess what I heard????? IT'S THERE!!!! It's only at the very end. Like, it comes in at about 7:02. And you can only hear it on headphones with the stereo remaster. But it's there. I found it. And of course, the moment I heard it, I jumped up and got on my mom's computer to tell you guys about it. I'm happy.

There's also a funky bassline in the final minute of Hey Jude , which I swear isn't on the original record. I think it's something that McCartney plays live nowadays, but surely not in 1968. Perhaps Giles M pieced it together in Pro Tools.

@Joe, did you see @IveJustSeenAFaceo's most excellent find?

IveJustSeenaFace's discovery is interesting.  It certainly sounds like it's there, but the volume is so low from the fade-out, I can't be certain it's the same bass line as heard in such a loud pronounced way on "Love".

At 2:50 on Kite/I Want You does anybody know where that 10-second organ insert comes from? It's not on the original song and I can't find it anywhere else. What a thrilling moment to come on top of everything else that has occurred in the song up until then!

In the show all hell (literally) breaks loose at the beginning of I Want You as Ku Klux Klan members advance and everyone plummets into a huge hole that opens up on center stage. Incredibly dramatic...and horrific, actually.

I Found some interesting stuff in Glass Onion :

*"The Word " Guitar runs trough the song (Best Heard at Center Channel)

 

*There's an Organ (Or something like that) at the end, that gradually lowers its pitch, i don't know what song it is. (Best Heard at Center Channel)

 

*Theres another organ trough the whole song and some strings, mabye Eleanor Rigby Strings (Rear Channels)

 

*Looking at spectral view, you can see there's a Piano, you can barely hear it. Also, you can hear "Lovely Rita " Piano glissando. (Front Channels)

 

Double-Checked using "Loveology" Stems

If you listen to the last couple of seconds just before the fade-out on the original single (check out the Past Masters version) that funky bass-line is just audible if you turn the volume up full!

OK, I've finally got round to listening out for that bass part in Hey Jude . It's clearer on Mono Masters, which lasts a little longer than the stereo version. I still don't think it's *precisely* the same line as in Love, but I am willing to believe that the part is there later on in the performance, beyond the fade out on the original multitracks. Maybe one day we'll get to hear them...

Slight correction: John says "this is Johnny Rhythm," but he's doing it in such a trumped up accent that it sounds like "Johnny Leyton."

Yip. its definitely Johnny Rhythm. Thats what you get when you copy and paste and why if you are going to cheat in your studies and steal from the internet you should check its correct before submission.

Can anyone tell me more about the acoustic demo section of "Strawberry Fields Forever " that starts the song?

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

It's on the second Anthology CD, but I can't recall if it's Take 1 or Take 7.

The first 'SFF' on 'Anthology 2 ' is a demo sequence recorded by John in his home at Kenwood in November 1966, there are a number of these on bootleg which the Anthology took a few excerpts of and put them together. The full demos have been issued on bootlegs such as 'Nothing Is Real'. There are also earlier run-thru's that John recorded in Spain which have also been booted.

The Take 1 on Anthology 2  (track 2 on disc/tape/cd 2) differs from the Take 1 heavily bootlegged in that it omits various vocals and instruments overdubbed later.

Take 7 is the take used for the first 60 seconds on the officially released recording and has been booted complete as has Mono Remix 3 of Take 7. Take 7 on Anthology 2 (track 3 on disc/tape/cd 2) fades into a remix of the end of Take 24. Joe's entry on the recording and mixing session of 'SFF' (which gave us Takes 5, 6, & 7 (which is actually a reduction of Take 6 which then got overdubs added to)) which took place on the 29th November 1966.

SFF is one of the most heavily documented tracks which we have access to thanks to so many takes being bootlegged over the years.

I would love to know how they stitched together the intro to Fool on the Hill. I've read (in this thread and elsewhere) that the bass line is borrowed from Because , and I guess I can buy that, but what I'd really love to know is where they got the chimes/bells and that ringing triangle.

I think it's a tambourine (possibly from Norwegian Wood ), not a triangle, and the bells are an electric piano. I'm happy to be corrected though.

Excitement! Joy! I was just listening to the "Magical Mystery Tour " album in my car on the way to work, only half paying attention, and then I heard it -- not sure if it's because it's easier to hear in the mono mix I was listening to or what, but during the first two choruses of "Fool on the Hill," you can definitely hear those "bells." Or maybe it's electric piano, as you said, @Joe . The more I listen to it, the more it sounds like a celeste, or even a glockenspiel -- definitely something in that family of instruments, though.

At any rate, at least now I know where those sounds came from in the "Love" re-mix. They're a part of the original "Fool on the Hill" recording, isolated and made more prominent in the re-mix.
