Interesting. I’ve always read the same story that the Beatles weren’t happy with the recording, left it in the vault and then later John donated it. Will have a look for that Beatles Monthly entry.

Always good to learn new things.

Edit: Found them in the March 1968 edition of ‘The Beatles Monthly‘.

Lovely……..To read those pages again.

I’ve still got a complete set from 65 under the bed  somewhere……..I’ll dig them out and have a night in with a glass of wine.

 

I remember being so jealous of these girls getting in on a recording……And also longing to hear this lost in the can recording…….Across The Universe ……It sounded far out which we thought was the direction we were going in until Lady M appeared when we about faced……..It’s Only Rock and Roll but I like it.

I worked this out before there was a youtube…….now…..!!

Here’s the way.

 

Enjoy.

Having just gone through this I realize I don’t play it well at all.

That guy’s great! I’ve learned so much from him.

The thing that gets me about LM is the backing vocals. I remember really noticing them for the first time, and that’s when I began to like the song a whole lot more.

The lyrics are pretty clever too, first the children running, then LM needs to fix her stockings because they have a run in them.

The piano is also great as with all Paul piano parts, and the way he sings it is perfect for the song. It’s just a really good song. I think it goes everywhere it needs to!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

A new interview with Paul where he mentions his inspiration for Lady Madonna.

From the article:

Sir Paul McCartney has spoken of his inspiration for the Beatles’ hit Lady Madonna – a woman breastfeeding her child.

Sir Paul said he was inspired to write the song after seeing an image of a woman in National Geographic magazine in the 1960s.

National Geographic’s January 1965 issue published a photograph entitled Mountain Madonna, of a woman whose way of life was threatened, with one child at her breast and another laughing up at her.

“She looked very proud and she had a baby … And I saw that as a kind of Madonna thing, mother and child,” Sir Paul said.

“Sometimes you see pictures of mothers and you go ‘She’s a good mother’. You could just tell there’s a bond and it just affected me, that photo. So I was inspired to write Lady Madonna , my song, from that photo.”

That post was brought to you by a future Ahhh Girl:

That proves how cool The Beatles are. They can get inspiration from a newspaper, a box of chocolates, past songs, and a picture of a breastfeeding mother. Wow.

I always liked this song. It is very similar to Hey Bulldog , with the piano and the piercing guitars.

Good point, I never noticed that. The main difference is that Hey Bulldog is biting and almost bitter-sounding, whereas this one is more positive and gently jocular.

Thats just Lennon vs McCartney, I suppose. It’s a bit like Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane .

I was reading Sylvia Massy’s book “Recording Unhinged” and just saw this:

Interesting. It sounds like a bass and a guitar to me, though.

No guitar for my ears.

isolate the right channel, listen to the last note, or the last few notes. The note that rings out is 63 hertz – way below a guitar’s range (the low E on a guitar is about 83 hertz).

Also it just sounds WAY too much like Paul’s Rickenbacker… 

Obviously there’s the fuzz guitar at 44 seconds but that’s a different part…

Yeah, well…listening to the whole track… i hear a bass line (guitar?, bass?…. guitar low E string is at 83 hz yup, but what if it’s tunned at low C? ) doubled with what sounds like a palm muted guitar  to add a bit of high end crunch… mccartney-shrug_01_gif
