Right - they even shared model Charlotte Martin...even though George was still married to Pattie.

I always chuckle at the line, "We all know ob-la di-bla da, but can you show me where you are?" because while it is true that we all know ob-la di-bla da today, at the time the album came out no one knew it (except those who had already heard it on side one).

Is this line meant to be a criticism of Paul? It seems as if George is asking Paul whether he can be less fake.

Expert Texpert, you forgot that most people listened to new albums from start to finish, so almost everybody back in 1968 heard Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da before Savoy Truffle and on top of that, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da was recorded first and was released as a single, so it'd be absurd to think anyone heard Savoy Truffle before Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da , it's like thinking that people heard Because before they heard Something . As for the meaning of the line, It seems to me that George wants Paul to be more serious with his music instead of the childish psychedelic rock The Beatles had previously spewed out.

Maybe you should try posting more.

Not until 1976. It was released in some countries in 1968, mainly European, but didn't see a single release in the UK or US until 1976.

I know that it was only released in some European countries in 1968, but if you lived in say France, there's a chance you would've bought the single before you bought The Beatles.

It didn't see a UK release in 1976 or any other time.

I wasn't suggesting that people dropped the needle on Savoy Truffle first. As I said above, George could not have truthfully made the statement that "we ALL know" Ob-la in 1968, since only the people who had heard it on side 1 knew what it was.

Is this line meant to be a criticism of Paul? It seems as if George is asking Paul whether he can be less fake.  

Or perhaps pointing out that everyone can wear a mask but never show their true selves. Probably not Paul specific, it sounds like he's using Ob-la di-bla da as a way of saying "we all know ah blah blah blah blah BUT etc" ie "we all know you can say this and that but can you demonstrate where you're coming from?" or actions speak louder than words. Remember, this is a song about Eric's sweet tooth, perhaps he's reminding Eric that he can say he'll not give in to his addiction but can he actually demonstrate it. Perhaps he's talking about drugs. Would this be about the time that George went on an anti-drug thing (even though he would relapse himself)?

Maybe George put 'obladi oblada' instead of 'life goes on' because it goes better with '...where you are?'... so 'we all know life goes on..."

I was listening to the isolated left channel to this song, and I've noticed an incredible amount of tape delay on the drums for this song. The snare drum is very bottom heavy, as though he played it with a sheet on top. Add that to the tape delay (just one cycle, but surprisingly loud), and the drums sound very different on this track compared to other tracks.

because that's exactly what he did. It's especially interesting because you probably had no idea about this.

I knew it was a technique, as I've used that technique before, but I had no idea that he actually did use a sheet! Thank you very, very much @Dark Overlord, you made me feel very happy just then!

I've known it for awhile myself, great for when you don't want the notes to sustain. By the way, I think he likes to use tea towels.

Anyways, I thought I'd post a picture that I have confirmed in another thread is George during this session, it looks like he's recording the guitar solo overdub using his 1957 Gibson Les Paul Lucy in the bridge position.

Reminds me of Spector's wall of sound, and how he would wash the drums with reverb using sinilar tecniques. Instant Karma is my favorite example.

Didn't the tea towel start during the 'Revolver ' sessions? Or was that when they were stuffing jumpers in the bass drum to get a more deadened sound.
