Beautiful and underrated, I'm glad George was pushed to do it.

I didn't really hear it until I got Past Masters , quite late into my (The faaarther one traaavels, the lesss one knooows... the less one really knoooooows). I was fair enraptured by the flute and the vocal melody -- it's my favourite of his Indian trilogy.

Great song. I love George hauling John and Paul into the studio to contribute a two-second, 4-word vocal overdub.

I really like this song especially for the line with the ending harmony.

I LOVE this song so much and I hate how underrated it is. The lyrics are wonderful. And one of the instruments (the trumpet thing- I forgot what it's called) is used in Indian weddings, so I feel nostalgic when I hear it.

Alas! Being underrated is the fate of any good B-side. Especially one as great as this.

Another of those 50th-anniversary book differences in the recording line-up where it omit's John's backing vocals. 

Which account is therefore gone with? Do we stick to what's been recorded for five decades or go with what is reported in the newest official source which has studied the original tapes again?

I must say this is a good song, with in my opinion some of George's most profound lyrics. I really enjoyed the sitar work, as well as all the other backing instruments. It's a shame that this song is forever banished to the B-Side. 

Also, I must say that this song is better than "Within You Without You ". Apologies to Scarlett Fields Forever.

Bold take ^^ Personally, this is my least favourite of the heavily Indian-influenced songs, but it's still enjoyable. I like the title.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I like the lyrics of the other ones better, but this one might have the best melody. Then again, Within You Without You might also have the best melody. I’m not sure. I’d have to listen.

Love one another.

I like to think of this one as George's exercise in Indian-"jazz", following his  "-"classical" and "-rock" efforts. It's got the addition of wind instruments, and guys trading little instrumental bits around, and that same overall peace-and-love-and-percussion vibe as those Pharoah Sanders albums we all love. apple01

("Wonderwall Music" has touches of jazz too, come to think of it, a nice solo trumpet, at least)

Which ones would you say are the classical and rock ones, @Wigwam ? I've not yet heard Wonderwall Music but if it's anything like Pharoah Sanders then I should probably check it out..

Thanks, wigwam!

The music of "Wonderwall" (and "Inner Light") isn't jazz per se, and doesn't SOUND much like it really, any more than "Within You Without You " sounds like classical music. What it does is remind me of the overall spiritual/spacey aura that surrounds certain "exotic" recordings of the era, such as Pharaoh's. But on the whole, if you acquire it in hopes of hearing "Karma II", you'll be disappointed, sorry.

...but it's still a cool assortment of sounds, including a couple of acid-rocking instrumentals featuring guests Eric Clapton and Ringo! (Both sonically identifiable)
