Anyone ever seen the attached picture before or its claim? New to me.

The artwork is gorgeous by the way. Quite like it on my wall.

It seems to me that I recently read a quote from Ringo in which he mentions a design for the Pepper album by The Fool. His remark was rather flippant as to why it was not used – like maybe there was a falling out between TF and the band.

In any event, the design is quite cool. To me, it resembles much of the artwork from the Yellow Submarine movie.

EDIT: Awww crap! It was right here in the BB all the time. https://www.beatlesbible.com/a…..ub-band/4/

One of these days, I’m going to go back to reading these articles like i used to.a-hard-days-night-john-3

Thank you @Zig. Trust @Joe to have the answer. He should just gather together all the articles he has written so far and release an ebook.

 

Obviously the disagreement didn’t lead to a long separation with The Fool considering they painted the Apple boutique not too soon after.

Just started listening to the 20th May 1967 edition of ‘Where It’s At’ (the first of that particular series). Now ‘Pepper’ was released on 1st June (tho i have read copies were being sold in late May) and considering many of the tracks appear in this show (tho maybe not in full, i’ll know later) would this have been their world premier exclusives at that time?

Its pretty exciting listening to a time and radio show when ‘Pepper was being unveiled and few knew what was about to happen.

From The Examiner:

The information contained in Sir George Martin’s handwritten notes from the first recording session for the Beatles’ song “Help !” now on display at Liverpool’s The Beatles Story museumshowed The Beatles were exploring possibilities of the recording studio that eventually would lead to the landmark “Sgt. Pepper ‘s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album, Beatles historian and author David Bedford (“Liddypool, Birthplace of the Beatles,” “The Fab One Hundred and Four”) told Beatles Examiner Feb. 19.

The notes from that session from Feb. 15, 1965 at Studio Two at EMI Studios at Abbey Road went on display last week, according to the museum. They said the notes, which had been left in a locked cupboard covered in dust for 50 years, reveal the structure of the sessions and were a departure from their usual recording methods.

More at the link.

That story really annoyed me. Firstly, they were recording on four-track from October 1963 (I Want To Hold Your Hand ). Two track has nothing to do with most of Please Please Me being recorded in a day (not a night) – it’s coincidental. Their recordings had been getting progressively more complex from day one, and there’s nothing here that suggests that Sgt Pepper was an inevitability. The Help ! songs were no more complex than many other pop songs recorded in 1965. I’d still like to see the recording notes though.

If anything, the truly great leap forward on Help ! was the use of session musicians on You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away and Yesterday .

John’s lyrical content took on a new “honesty” with the ‘Help !’ song in particular, while ‘I’ll Cry Instead (“I’ve Got A Chip On My Shoulder That’s Bigger Than My Feet”) and more recently ‘I’m A Loser (“Although I Laugh and I Act Like A Clown, Beneath This Mask I’m Wearing a Frown”) merely hinted at what he was truly feeling inside, this time he was baring much more of his soul and desperately crying out for “Help !”.  It was very much a breakthrough for John during this period, it would underlie much of his remaining work within the confines of being Beatle John.  One of his last contributions to The Beatles’ legacy was ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’, to which he’d received some criticism after ‘Abbey Road ‘s release, some had expressed concern that he’d lost his pension for keen lyrics.  John defended his stance admirably by saying something to the effect of “when you’re in the middle of drowning you don’t stop to articulate a response such as ‘would somebody please mind taking time out of their busy schedule to prevent my lungs from being over stimulated with H2O and assist me in making it to shore’, you just scream out bloody ‘Help !’ or ‘I Want You!'”  This Brutal Honesty first came out in ‘Help !’, and without his wherewithal to smash through the “Beating Around The Bush” (as he’d done so before ‘Help !’ appeared) John’s wide-reaching influence throughout the world may not have been so memorable, ‘Imagine ‘, ‘Woman ‘, ‘Mother ‘, among many others owe much to ‘Help !’ for igniting their creative origins…:-)

Officially released 48 years ago today (tho some stores were selling it in late May). 

The Liverpool Echo has 18 facts on the album; number 9 being

The title track was originally going to be split into two parts, opening and closing the album. However, George Martin said the final chord of A Day In The Life was so final that, “it was obvious nothing else could follow it.”

Does that mean the title track and the reprise as i’ve never read that the opening track itself was going to be in two parts it certainly wasn’t recorded that way?

Apparently ‘Only A Northern Song ‘ was going to be on Pepper but Pauly……quickly wrote the SP reprise to segue into ADITL.

I thought ‘Only A Northern Song ‘ was ditched as the others thought it wasn’t good enough, George M told him and he went off and wrote ‘Within You, Without You’ – especially as the ‘Pepper’ reprise was a last minute thing. George would have been uber-pissed if it was because Paul wrote the ‘Pepper’ reprise.

You may well be right………and the article incorrect ………Indeed I’m editing this after reading up on what i can find……It seems George M wasn’t too keen on the negative tone and suggested it would fit better the YS film that was coming up. George H couldn’t be bothered to argue all that much. He had the WYWY on the album and to be fair GM did a GREAT job on the arrangement of that.

SPLHCB is better without OANS …..Though ATM would have fitted perfectly. 

 

Any how I’m sure most of you know all of the personalities on the Pepper Cover but this gives us a walk through them.

Wasn’t the Pepper reprise Neil Aspinall’s idea, prompting Lennon’s smiling response “Nobody likes a smart arse!”?

Yes

Which makes it even more unlikely that ‘OANS’ was scrapped because Paul wrote ‘Pepper (reprise)’.
