I didn’t see this posted before… a one-hour documentary on Band On The Run during one of the anniversaries.

Its from when the archive remarster came out a few years back and was shown on ITV in the UK. The interviewer is Dermot O’Leary who presents The X-Factor.

Something Else looking back at Band On The Run Paul McCartney ’s willingness to fail made Band On The Run an enduring masterpiece

This thread was a riot to read through. Before I comment on the album, I just have to make this note about post #9 in this thread:
 

Joe said
When I went to George Martin’s talk last week, we were allowed to submit questions to be selected randomly. One of mine was read out: I asked whether there were any Beatles songs he wished had been recorded/produced differently. George’s response was simple: “God forbid!”

 
@Joe got to go to a George Martin talk. And he’s had a pint with Mark Lewisohn. And he went to the lecture in Studio 2 on his birthday this year. :-) ahdn_george_01
 
That post also finds Joe being very poetic about Strawberry Fields Forever :

Needless to say, I think it’s a masterpiece. I couldn’t agree that it’s garbage because the lyrics don’t make sense – the words are an impressionist painting in song; few would argue that Monet would have been better if only he’d been a bit more accurate in his depictions.

 
Now, back on topic.
Listening to “Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five ” is like gorging on music. It is the whole Thanksgiving dinner, including dessert. I just have to take quiet rest break after listening to it.
There is this lyric in the song:

Oh my mama said the time would come when I
would find myself in love with you
I didn’t think
I never dreamed
That I would be around to see it all come true

Paul, now come on. Your Mother Should Know . You know that. She told you to Let It Be . Things will work out in their own way and their own timing.
I found this that skye saidback in 2010. Funny. Actually, the posts before (starting on page 10) and after that one (ending on page 11) are quite entertaining.

skye saidJet ? I haven’t seen her since Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five .

Just a note to say I got into a bit of a muddle over this. I decided to make this the ‘official’ BotR album thread. After I made it so I realised that I’d stumbled into a crazy thread that was about the merits of the song BotR, whether Strawberry Fields Forever is “garbage” (not my word), and a lot of other side issues.

Weirdly it got back on topic after a couple of pages, so I was able to chip it into shape. However, I had to delete some posts to make it fit (a lot of posts about Paulsbass and MrBig, surprise). The old thread is here (but locked), but there were a lot of messages that had to go. My mistake, sorry. I wanted to mention it because a lot of the things @Ahhh Girl discusses above are no longer in this thread.

Let’s keep it to Band On The Run from here on, though.

When I first listened to this album I didn’t care for it much; since getting it on vinyl and spinning it a good deal, it’s grown on me considerably. But I’ve always played it more for the sake of playing some agreeable noise on my turntable — or because Little Girl insisted — than anything, and I’ve never gotten a proper hankering to listen to it until now. Wouldn’t you know, I had to leave it at home… it seems absence does make the heart grow fonder. ahdn_paul_01 

Also, does anyone know who plays slide guitar on ‘No Words’? It’s a great track, the most Beatlesque thing I’ve heard since nineteen hundred and seventy, and the slide guitar sounds exactly like George’s work — but I know it can’t be.

@Beatlebug I find an exact answer but I assume its Denny Laine playing.

Just a similarity between ‘Band On The Run ‘ and…… ‘Coming Up ‘.

After the ‘Band On The Run ‘ refrain……following the Sailor Sam section there’s some slide guitar notes that remind me of the riff played almost throughout ‘Coming Up

Never noticed it before now i can’t un-notice it.

He has it as Mrs Vande*r*bilt. That’s what I thought it was for a long time.

It does kinda seem right, like the way so many people say “sherbert” instead of “sherbet”

I had a post typed which I submitted but the site logged me out when I did and I’m not retyping it. 

A 50th Anniversary ‘BOTR’ is coming on the 2nd February 2024 which includes the original US album (who cares?) and a set of early mixes. There will also be a Dolby Atmos remix by Giles Martin and Steve Orchard (who cares?).

 

The early mixes will be interesting to hear but compared to the John and George 50th sets this is really quite poor.

Seriously, where does someone discuss the 50th anniversary reissue (Feb. 2/24)? I personally think it is a long time coming.

Ok, so I think this is a great album- My Dad was in high school when it came out as the anthem of his graduation, so I kind of grew up liking it. For me, it is personal for it to get a reissue. The 50th reissue is like Time’s seal of approval; “this is a classic”. 

The under dub mixes kind of set it apart. At first I didn’t notice a difference but after hearing it they do lack a few things. Some of the overdubbed voices and instruments really make it glow and sound great. Especially on Jet – too tame for me based on the original.

PS. – Also, this is the year reissues start to come out. We have Band On The Run and Machine Head (Deep Purple) coming out in March. Getting into the real classic and legendary rock and roll. – And Hackney Diamonds sounds like that!
