Is that for every album?

No - just Pepper and Abbey Road . I love both albums but rarely, if ever, seek out individual tracks from them.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I agree. I do sometimes listen to some tracks from Abbey Road individually though.

I've really grown to love that song, lately. First of all the music is brilliant, especially the bass line, the guitar solo, and the way the harmony vocals create a groove with their 'dip, dip'. But I also really dig the way the lines of the lyrics intertwine with one another like in the following example 

And it really doesn't matter if
I'm wrong I'm right
Where I belong I'm right
Where I belong

Which plays with the lines 'where I belong I'm right' and 'I'm right where I belong'. Ingenius!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Hey, that reminds me of Paul's song End of the End. It wraps back around on itself. If you haven't heard it yet, give it a listen, @Martha. Have some Kleenexes with you when you listen.

Wasn't keen on it at first but I like it now. It was the same as when I first listened to I Am The Walrus . Had to listen to it a few times before I started to enjoy it.

Yes, it was George who recorded the solo on his Fender Stratocaster according to the new book on Sgt Pepper 's that's included in the box set.

Love you too Martha heart

 

I quite like this track, nice little ditty, nothing massively impressive but it is catchy.

The book included with the box set includes instrument models, maybe I should buy it, does it show a picture as well.

There are not that many instrument models mentioned, in fact, this has been the only one I came across so far. Pictures are included, although not for Fixing A Hole as far as I'm concerned. All in all, I quite like the book though.

It's odd that they refer to it as a Fender Stratocaster because The Beatles and people associated with them often just referred to their instruments by their brand name.

For example, in George Martin's handwritten notes he wrote for The Night Before , You've Got To Hide Your Love Away , I Need You , Another Girl , Ticket To Ride , You Like Me Too Much , Tell Me What You See , Yes It Is , and If You've Got Trouble , he uses the terms Fender, Gretsch, Rickenbacker, Epiphone, and Jumbo, here's his notes for Ticket To Ride as an example:

Also, in Beatles Book Monthly, they do the same thing, they don't even use the word Les Paul when describing George's Lucy, they just say his red Gibson guitar.

Strats and Teles are so distinctly Stratty and Tele-y that they have taken on lives of their own outside the Fender brand. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Agreed and a-hard-days-night-george-10 seems to specify model as well as brand, this is just what george-martin and mal-evans do.

Seems unlikely, Mal is a beast, just look at him.

PIC-BPFallonJohnLennonPOB1970_85514943-1b.jpgImage Enlarger

He's both tall and buff, the perfect bodyguard. There's a reason no one tried to attack The Beatles, it's because they knew that if they did, they'd have a big tough guy punching and or retraining them. For a big tough guy, he was also very nice to The Beatles, doing their dirty work for them, getting them whatever they ask for from matching 1961 Sonic Blue Fender Stratocasters to underwear for Ringo's doctor appointment. Why would Paul feel the need not to credit his big tough friend that's always there for him, he felt perfectly fine crediting him on the Rubber Soul album cover for playing organ on You Won't See Me and also, if Mal chose to leave him, all he'd have is Neil who isn't nearly as big and tough as Mal. I think that Mal didn't help write Fixing A Hole , it sounds like a Paul composition anyways.

Maybe he contributed a line or two and Paul just forgot...or maybe Paul was partly inspired by the hole-in-the-ice scene in Help !

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
