I never realized this before, but just a few days ago I heard that the guitar after the line “Everybody’s laughing” sounds likes its laughing. Its a fun little riff they threw in there.

The new Abbey Road remasters have a beautiful transition between You Never Give Me Your Money and sun king, however, one thing stands out after my first few listens: The organ part. Is this unique to the outtake used for the long one? or is this a part of the original Abbey Road recordings and Giles Martin brought it up in the mix. Ive listened back through the original album as well as the new remaster and it sounds like it just wasn’t there originally. What do you think? Do you like the organ part or does it take away from the transition, where it seems as though they pull everything away and drop into the guitar riff?

Anybody else see a comparison between Because /Sun King and Michelle /Girl as pairs of songs? Both are lush and warm and both are separated by one song, which is a good thing in both cases since they would probably blend together if played directly after one another.

I've been up on the mountain, and I've seen his wondrous grace,
I've sat there on the barstool and I've looked him in the face.
He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

I’ll have to listen to them. ahdn_john_08_gif

I’ve always thought of Michelle and Girl as A Nice Pair, but Because is too unique and Sun King too slight for me to think of them in an analogous way.

In an alternate early mix of the medley, the only transition between YNGMYM and Sun King was the single organ note; however, the final mix removed the organ and replaced it with Paul’s ambient sound effects.

So, to answer your question, no the organ wasn’t in the original released mix at all and is unique to the “outtake”/alternate mix, which Giles of course than implemented in the Long Medley. In my opinion, I think both are wonderful and I think it would’ve been even more so if they would’ve combined the two transitions in the remix.
