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?

Sounds like John and Paul doing the backing vocals but i guess George could've done that part himself.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

With the recent launch of the Material World Foundation's #innerlight2020 challenge, I've been giving this song far more attention than I ever did before (having to learn and record it in an afternoon a-hard-days-night-john-6), and it's quite changed my perspective of the song.

as I said elsewhere
I've been going through the challengers periodically, partly out of solidarity but also because I'm really enjoying hearing all the different ways people have managed to interpret what I always thought of as a fairly specific song. Just goes to show that you can take virtually any Beatles song, even the more arrangement-specific ones, and interpret them in radically different ways and they still hold up as excellent examples of songcraft. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Before, I always thought of it as "just one of George's Indian songs", a very lovely and the most underrated/overlooked one to be sure, but I never thought of it as the kind of proper Beatles song that you could cover in orthodox or unorthodox ways without losing the point of the song, which I thought was the Indian arrangement/instrumentation. Boy, was I wrong. a-hard-days-night-george-9

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!"

it's my favourite of his Indian trilogy.

Agree, it's also my favorite of George's Indian songs.  I've always thought that.

When it comes to the Beatles, sometimes being an "underrated B-side" can be blessing.  Because it doesn't get overplayed.
