I’ve always had an appreciation for this interpretation, but it’s always seemed weak to me. If there was a rill between one and the other, then it would make sense, but there isn’t; there is a crossfade – indicating, in my opinion, that the (Reprise) is the intro to the show’s encore.

And Paul, since he started playing it live, has almost always put it towards the beginning of his encore, indicating that he’s “getting very near end.”

It’s an intro to the last movement of the album, but with the crossfade – instead of a gap, I don’t see any argument that ADitL is played after the audience has left, because they are given no chance to leave. A rill, and clean beginning to ADitL would have indicated a separation. There is no separation, merely an introduction to the final song of the show that was Sgt. Pepper .

If anything, the run-out groove, “I never could see any other, I never could see any other,” could be viewed as the audience leaving.

I was watching an interview with Geoff Emerick the other day, and he said that the band were criticised in some quarters for the ‘4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire’ line,as some people took that to be a drug reference (‘holes’ interpreted as meaning ‘needle marks’). Hilarious. That’s up there with the BBC banning I Am The Walrus because John said ‘knickers’. I realize they were different times back then,but that’s still crazy to me.

The line that got A Day In A Life taken off the radio was “I’d love to turn you on.”

They knew exactly what they were saying too.

Ah right! Thanks. Yeah, I heard that that line was quite deliberate. It’s personally my favourite Beatles song,along with Strawberry Fields. 

The way they linked Paul’s bit in with the rest of the song (because John needed something to ‘pad out’ the middle) was brilliant. 

I can understand how ‘I’d love to turn you on’ would be frowned upon,but I guess they figured they’d be able to get away with it

Considering the song’s length, ending, reference to death and avant garde atonal orchestral crescendos I doubt it would have been played much anyways. It’s not exactly commercial.

paul-mccartney-thumb_gif @Ron Nasty: thanks once again. I can understand it from their point of view,they obviously don’t want to be seen to be advocating drug taking, and it was a bit of a cheeky line from the boys (no pun intended!) I can only speak for myself, and say that if I’d heard that line,it wouldn’t make me want to go out and do drugs of any kind, just as seeing Paul’s cigarette on the cover of Abbey Road wouldn’t have made me want to start smoking (a discussion I’ve had on another thread a-hard-days-night-george-10). I can understand how people might have been influenced by that though, particularly young kids,and the lads should have probably thought a bit more about the influence of their words and actions on people before they included that line,but hey, it’s a great line, and fits well with the song.

It’s all on the ‘Anthology 2 ‘ concoction. “Oh Shit!” is from Paul’s vocal on take 6 which you can find in the 50th Anniversary box (take 6, RM1) as well as numerous bootlegs.

That is odd, @Shamrock Womlbs . I googled the lyrics as well and noticed the same thing. As a matter of fact, they also included the pre-take banter (at least how Google hears it) that includes John’s last minute direction as well as the “Sugarplum fairy, sugarplum fairy” count-in. 

“Dub the mic on the piano quite low this
Just keeping it like maracas, you know
You know those old pianos”

“Ok, we’re on”

I have that bootleg and have heard that outtake several times and was always a little spooked by that line. The Sgt. Pepper banter is really weird.

From the letter written by the Director of Sound Broadcasting which Ron Nasty supplied:

“I expect we shall meet with some embarrassment over this decision, which has already been noted by the Press.”

This indicates that the Messrs. at Sound Broadcasting were going against the grain of the prevailing (and continually growing) Zeitgeist of surrounding society, and knew it. One of the last gasps of genteel, polite society as the Cultural Revolution was exploding all around them leading logically to (among a whole cornucopia of music in the ensuing decades) Rap and HipHop — WARNING: explicit lyrics in these links:

CupcakKe — “Deep Throat”

http://www.metrolyrics.com/dee…..cakke.html

50 Cent — “In Da Club”

http://www.metrolyrics.com/in-…..-cent.html

Snoop Dogg — “Smoke Weed Everyday”

http://www.metrolyrics.com/smo…..-dogg.html

Chris Brown — “Look At Me Now”

http://www.metrolyrics.com/loo…..brown.html

etc. etc. ad nauseam…

I’m not quite sure if it’s what you’re referring to @Lawernce, but there is a squeaking chair heard at 4:47. If that’s not the sound you’re referring to, could you give a time reference so we know where to look?

The dog whistle is infamous, @Pineapple Records. It occurs between the end of the piano fade-out and the run-out groove. It’s actually a 15 kilohertz tone.

Here’s Paul talking about it in 2013:

I think vinyl is the best. It just sounds good. I asked my engineers why it sounds good and they explained that there are frequencies above and below that you can’t hear. We got into a rap with George Martin a long time ago. We’d talk for hours about these frequencies below the sub that you couldn’t really hear and the high frequencies that only dogs could hear. We put a sound on Sgt. Pepper that only dogs could hear. If you ever play Sgt Pepper watch your dog.

If you are younger than ~45-50, you can hear the tone. Anyone below 30 should be able to hear it with ease, because over time, ears get less sensitive to higher frequencies. (and for nerds, it’s actually a 15077 hertz tone, GM was ever so slightly outpaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif.) Apparently all 4 Beatles had hearing impairment, if none of them could hear that noise…

Considering that they were in the world’s biggest rock band, had spent countless hours in noisy rehearsals and clubs in Hamburg and then playing live to audiences who screamed louder than a jet taking off… I would be more surprised if they could hear it. ahdn_george_01

I, on the other hand, can hear it fine. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 I haven’t spent enough hours in noisy band rehearsals a-hard-days-night-paul-7
