One of my favorites among John's early bluesy compositions.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

It seems like it would be fun to play.

I love George's boots at 0:46.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Does the 1963 recordings of 'One After 909' have the unique distinction of having all four Beatles in a row causing the takes to fail?

Take 1 - Ringo (drumming)

Take 2 - George (guitar solo)

Take 3 - Paul (bass)

Take 4 - John (vocal too early)

 

The session is brilliant to listen to as all four sound really pissed off, especially John who, in his own inimitable style, brusquely questions the other three for screwing it up before screwing it up himself yet thinks it was Paul who very quickly defends himself.

It's funny that Ringo's mistake is from failing to stop with the song, not a tempo or botched fill. I've not heard him make of mistake of that sort in all my years of listening. Take 2's guitar sounds lost and choppy, but I don't hear any acknowledgment that George was the reason for the bad take. Thanks for pointing this out it made for an awesome listen.

I love the 1969 version of this song, recorded live on the Apple rooftops with John on lead and Epiphone guitar, Paul on backing and Hofner bass, George on Fender lead guitar, and Ringo on drums.

You can clearly hear John exclaiming "What kind of a solo was that?!!" immediately after take 2 ends. There are a good few botched guitar notes at the end of the solo.

But didn't George flub his guitar parts on the finished take in songs as well, such as in Dizzy Miss Lizzy and All You Need Is Love and also, didn't George improv his earlier solos, i thought that he didn't plan out his solos until Can't Buy Me Love.

I always liked this song. I'm glad they resurrected it in 1969. I fell that if they had of released it in 1963 it wouldn't be as good as the 1969 version as there's so much energy and it would be lacking Billy Preston's keyboard.

Ahh. Very faint, but I hear it now. The track seems to fade out as he says it. 

a-hard-days-night-john-3George failed on the solo anyways so I can't blame John but it's good to hear him get a taste of his own medicine from Paul on take 4.
