Thanks all!! I find this type of song investigation incredibly interesting. It brings me back to days from long ago when mystery Beatle bootlegs would be shared on cassettes (without having any background information what-so-ever as to their origin). It is a buzzy experience to revisit even the slightest recording now and learn its story.

Listening to the music that they released is great, but I feel so much more connected to the band and their music when I can be a fly on the wall hearing the sounds and discussions that were a part of the creative process.

@ro32xx, The Beatles didn’t like to stay in the same mode year-after-year. That’s why they have such a variety material on offer. Some people like only one of the sounds of the Beatles. Some like one more than others. Some of us love all the sounds of the Fab Four.
And sometimes a different sound grows on people.
Since my February post I’ve been listening to the full range of Beatles music, and yes i would definitely say it’s all grown on me a huge amount, so i now have Spotify playlists for all their eras of music. Also really love the early stuff.
I would say the album that’s grown on me the most has been ‘Let it be’… what a great array of tracks, especially after seeing the roof top numbers.
As I am relatively new to the Beatles I assume everything i mention is already known to most fans, but just in case you hadn’t seen this documentary series Understanding Lennon/McCartney, it’s exceptionally good, with no narration which gives a great musical atmospheric feel, although i can’t help thinking it was someone from the McCartney clan who was commissioned to produce it.

Of the 13 canon albums I placed Magical Mystery Tour at #8 saying: “Quintessential experimental rock. An eclectic menage. A progression from frivolity to studied genius.”
Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

The sound of childhood nostalgia is psychedelic layers of Beatles vocal harmony begging to roll up for the mystery tour.
I’m not just saying that because I just listened to this album for the first time in forever and it took me back to being 8 years old again – it sounded like nostalgia when I was 8, too, so now the effect is just compounded.
Trippy! (no unadvisable chemicals needed)
