It's just silly, in my opinion, to dismiss someone who the surviving members, including George before his death, have always respected, and have never disputed (so far) his take on their history, which often isn't flattering and often doesn't stick to what was thought yo have happened, while they have openly disparaged books by those who were Ron Nasty said

  

I don't "dismiss" his work...  I just don't adopt it as gospel like many of you have...  of course George Harrison didn't step up to the mike and state publicly that, "you know Mark, the Wah-Wah pedal wasn't even invented in 1965 so that's not what I'm playing on 'I Need You '"...  it's painfully obvious that Mark Lewisohn should spend a little more time researching the history of music itself...  gonna have to agree to disagree on what the criteria is for "Expert" status there...:-)

But no more silly than Paul stating for many years that John complemented him on Here, There And Everywhere  while in Austria filming Help !, a year before he'd written it, and something he has recently said the complement actually happened during the Revolver  sessions.

As ML tweeted to me when I found a small error in Volume 1, "We all make mistakes."

Peace + Love heart

"silly" was your word, not mine...  you have an extensive volume called 'Anthology' where the text is first hand accounts by those who were there...  there's no colourful adverbs/adjectives sprinkled on top of afterwards, it's a literal transcript of The Beatles own words during many different moments of their career...  sure, they get things mixed up at times but the others are there to elaborate further...  although they all shared the same experience together it was an individual one for them as well...  no one person, whether inside or on the outside looking in can possibly sum up the four lives better than those four themselves, they are "The Experts"...  I mean, are you going to favour the work of a bible scholar who's studied second hand information all of their lives over the words of Jesus himself?...  it's why the current edition doesn't mirror the ancient scriptures...

 

I always remember this film I saw back in the 90's of an exercise where about 2 dozen highly educated persons were sitting around one of them long executive style boardroom tables...  the object was to take a simple phrase (wish I could remember what it was but it was no more than 4 or 5 words) and whisper it into the next person's ear and pass it 'round the table...  they didn't even make it to halfway around when the phrase had all ready become altered beyond recognition...  and this is what has happened to The Beatles' legacy over the years...  with each second hand translation the author/historian adds their own personal touch, often with complete disregard to factual accounts...

 

even in the case of 'Carnival Of Light ', where Mark Lewisohn can stake claim to being one of the select few who've heard it outside of the original event...  he declares to those clamouring to hear it themselves that "it's just a circus"...  uh, no Mark, that's 'Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite'...  while I plead ignorance for not having heard it myself, the details of the recording (many of which were provided by you) suggest that it's something much darker and disturbing than 'Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite'...  his thorough research is unmatched, but should be presented in a way that one can draw their own conclusions, instead of imposing a "this is what really happened" scenario...  he's built a Marvelous Castle out of a House of Cards, the same thing Sir Peter Jackson is attempting to do now...:-)

I think he may have referred to Carnival Of Light being like a circus because of all the bells and whistles and not a literal circus which is what Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite tries to be.

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.
