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

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 feel 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.

Something poignant and ironic about the recorded history of this song - it existed before the Beatles, and was recorded; then it was recorded again (and again) when they were on the verge of fame; and then finally it was recorded yet again when they were on the top of the world (/roof), on the verge of breakup, the song's basic structure and lyrics unchanged, the arrangement constantly tinkered with all the while...and none of those recordings were ever heard by the public at large until the band was no more. And yet as more time goes by, older and older versions surface! (One admittedly a frankenstein, but whatever)

Compare, contrast, rank, etc...

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

It's a great song and , i think, those three different versions prove it. If it works , it works in whatever version. That also proves that the Beatles were a great band and knew how to make things work... but i guess we don't need no prove about that.

Yeah, a great, simple song indeed and all renditions have their charms.

I suppose the 1969 rooftop take is "best", thanks to the addition of Billy and George's flawless lead guitar throughout. But I love LOVE the slower '62 just for them chooglin' rhythms from drums and guitars: The way George and Ringo create actual train noises, and especially those startling four quick powerchords every time we move over once or twice. And to know that we're hearing it all reverberate off those disgusting, legendary concrete walls.

 

It's interesting how they ultimately released a version with a simple 2/4 rhythm, more akin to the trio version - like they've come full circle. 

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!"

This is one of those songs that I'd never think of when asked about my favourites of theirs, but I do really love the guitar solo.
