I have taken every track of I Am The Walrus and have made it true stereo all the way through. I will explain how later, but if anyone wants it, I'll post a download link.

I wish these tracks were still available!
 

Do you mean the Rock Band isolated tracks which is where it will be derived from or the remix?

I want to hear the true remix, or is it already out on CD, since the 2014 U.S. CD releases??

The US releases are the same as they ever were. A true stereo remix has not been officially released on CD aside from 'Love' but that's intentionally different.

Guess I'll have to check my Blu Ray and transfer it to my DVD recorder.  Bit of work, but sounds like it'll be worth it though!

I'll check YouTube first though, as you can pretty well find everything there!brian-epstein

Just a heads up that a true complete stereo remix was made for the Anthology DVD and is fantastic. Can't remember if what they did for the remasters, probably remains a stereo/mono concoction.

One of the more unique Beatles songs of the psychadelic era.  It's mechanical, metallic, but still has a nice drifty somewhat uplifting melody to it.  Lennon was quite upset that this cryptic experimental song wasn't an A-Side, but if this is not a great B-Side, then what is?

I was listening to this the other day........Great track.

 

But it struck me as being very similar to the two note police siren John used in 'I Am The Walrus '......He always said they copied him.

What do you think?

John isn't singing as Paul - he's singing as the walrus!

I seem to recall an interview where Paul was commenting on the 'Paul is Dead' rumours, where he referred to "putting on the walrus mask" for a laugh, but it wasn't clear whether he was talking about the actual film, or some photo...:-)

I’m not really sure if I consider Paul to be the walrus, even though we have that Glass Onion lyric. John saying he did it out of guilt influences my opinion.

I had a thought about the line "Man, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allen Poe."

From Joe's page on the song

According to Lennon's childhood friend Pete Shotton, he {Lennon} was further inspired to turn the song into a nonsense tour-de-force after receiving a letter from Stephen Bayley, a pupil at his old primary school Quarry Bank. The letter revealed that a teacher was having his class analyse Beatles lyrics.

Lennon asked Shotton to remind him of a playground rhyme they'd known from childhood:

"Yellow matter custard, green slop pie, all mixed together with a dead dog's eye. Slap it on a butty, ten foot thick. Then wash it all down with a cup of cold sick."

This became "Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye", followed by a stream of mostly meaningless nonsense. "Let the fuckers work that one out," was his response to Shotton when he'd finished.

Maybe "kicking" Poe meant teachers, etc., were trying to over-analyze Poe's works just like they were trying to over-analyze Beatles songs.

I'm wondering if the ascending/descending scale tones at the end of "I Am The Walrus " were George Martin's idea or John's. I've read analyses about the music theory but nothing about whose idea it was.  Sounds like something George Martin would think of given his formal training.

I don't know but the chords elsewhere in I Am The Walrus are descending so I think (and this is speculation I have no idea) it was John's idea.descending.PNGImage Enlarger
