I have a Dig It question. I read about this topic on some other forums. Does John say at the end, “All the angels come” or “Hark, the angels come”?
I have always heard it as “all the angels” and can’t hear it the other way. But some say he was saying “Hark” with a silent H because of his accent.

Its ‘Hark the angels come”, a Lennon play on the hymn title ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’. Often its said to have been inserted by Phil Spector (with John’s knowledge) deliberately before ‘Let It Be ‘ on the album as a to Paul and the gospel sounds and message of the song ‘Let It Be ‘, especially when on the other side you have ‘Maggie Mae ‘ which is about a Liverpool prostitute. On the 3rd Glyn Johns compilation however John’s comment is in place before ‘Let It Be ‘ – tho not the fourth – and Glyn brought in ‘Maggie Mae ‘ as well, tho the sequencing was different.
So who knows.

This song as it is on Let It Be is probably my least favorite Beatles song. Full versions of this song are quite enjoyable to listen to, but its the fact that there’s basically an iTunes preview of the full song on the Let It Be album disappoints me. I think Specter should have either put the version meant for Get Back on LIB or just left it out entirely.
