The distortion on the toms, the sound quality on the vocals... Just don't go there. Please don't.

Ah, I see. I'm listening to I'm Down . Almost on Volume Two of Past Masters ...

Love one another.

Currently I am attempting to tackle this monumental slice of madness. It's so insanely wild, I love it and hate it in equal measures.

  

Yep, that's a pretty abrasive listen, all right! I play it maybe once a year (if that) - about as often as "Cambridge 1969" from "Unfinished Music #2"

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Mother Nature's Son from the Esher Demos.

Such a beautiful song! For some reason I've never really been impressed by it until recently.

I usually reach a certain point about 10 minutes into each piece where it actually sounds pretty calm and peaceful. I figure if I keep listening then eventually it'll click properly for me.

In a similar vein, here's another abrasive and aggressive album that I've been playing a lot recently (and right now)

Forget to mention in my previous post - I marathoned Rubber Soul thru Let It Be earlier today. It was blissful.

That sounds divine. I'm in the process of giving Pepper a proper listen-through. Getting Better just started.

I love the first side of Pepper because all the intros to the songs are so great, particularly Lucy and Getting Better

Now relaxing with some Stevie

I'm listening to Live At The BBC now, and the vocals on I'll Be On My Way low key remind me of the Everly brothers.

Young Blood now... George sounds fantastic as always heart

I’ll Be On My Way is one of the many gems from the BBC performances. Hard To Believe they couldn’t find room for it on an album. Imagine Beatles For Sale with I’ll Be On My Way on side two.

The reason they didn't include it on any Beatles release is probably because they wrote it for someone else, the only time they recorded a song they originally wrote for someone else being I Call Your Name for The Beatles Second Album in the US and the Long Tall Sally EP in the UK.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Afraid it wasn't originally written for someone else, DO. I'll Be on My Way was written in around 1961, long before John and Paul were consciously writing songs for anyone but themselves. There were originally very few of the songs they "gave away" that were written for someone else, and they did sometimes also crop up on Beatles albums: Misery  was written for Helen Shapiro, given to Kenny Lynch, and appeared on PPM I Wanna Be Your Man  was an idea they had, finished off in response to a request for a song for the Stones, and was then given to Ringo for his WTB vocal the day after the Stones had recorded their version.

I Call Your Name  was not written for Billy J. either - another early song, like IBOMW, as John recalled in 1980:

The first part had been written before Hamburg even. It was one of my first attempts at a song.

The truth is many of the early Lennon-McCartney songs that were given away dated back to the early days in Liverpool and which they felt they'd progressed beyond, though in a few cases they decided to record and release their own versions.

I think Blond has become my favourite album at this point. So beautiful, feels like a modern RnB take on Brian Wilson style songwriting. Since September, I've played tracks from it 292 times, according to my LastFM account.

Me and my neighbours a-hard-days-night-george-10 jk, my sister actually, are getting some Led out. I'm spinning my Zepp III vinyl and

trying to stay sober/not aroused a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 Led Zepp is potent, it has a pretty strong effect on me a-hard-days-night-paul-7 but since the kidsister's around I'm trying to keep it PG ahdn_george_06

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Blond is great. I don’t agree with the Brian Wilson comp, but I do admit i was stunned by the way the instruments were arranged and surprised by the creative sounds that were on Blond. Channel Orange is better I think but Blond was a worthy successor. One of the best albums of the decade no doubt.

For me Ivy, Pink + White, Nights and White Ferrari could all have been Pet Sounds era Beach Boys songs, if you scaled the language back to Brian's style and tightened up the arrangements a bit. White Ferrari even quotes Here There And Everywhere , which as we know was directly inspired by God Only Knows. I think Blonde is definitely better than Channel Orange, but they're also vastly different, since CO is mostly straight forward RnB pop, whereas Blonde is way more abstract and ambient.

Different grooves. Can’t see any Frank Ocean songs actually fitting in on Pet Sounds. Come on man. 

I’m listening to the Imagine outtakes and alternate mixes. I’m reading the book from the box set and will watch the studio footage afterward.
