In "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da " right after the part where Paul sings:

"...of Desmond and Molly Jones..."

the bass or a guitar should forcefully hit the bass B note once, then the lower bass E note 4 times (in a syncopated rhythm), leading back to the next lyric.

George never had a moustache, seriously it was so thick and didn't look good on him (he lost his cuteness of a being a beatle)

John kept the Sgt Pepper persona for longer

Paul should have kept a moustache for longer  

John worked harder on Abbey Road . He was holding back (of course he was no longer willing to work with Paul) 

Ringo did some practice as a songwriter during beatles or formed Starkey-Harrison

Paul immediately bought his songs rights back (another yoko's fault) 

Lennon-McCartney kept their egos low (again yoko's fault)

If you're talking about the first time they missed out on buying their songs ('69?) John was the one who insulted the bigwits and made them run elsewhere.  And i fail to see how it was Yoko's fault for John or Paul's ego's, they were large enough without her. John latched on to her like she was his comfort blanket.

ahdn_paul_06 Yoko came in the scene during White Album and that was the time Lennon-McCartney stared to crack. Some incidents are

When John worked with Yoko on rev.9 instead of the man, who made John so big. I think beatles would be nothing if Paul didn't write I Want To Hold Your Hand , she loves you and From Me To You . Though these songs are written together but i think I Want To Hold Your Hand was completely Paul stuff. Which broke beatles in america, Paul have also said he was hurt when john didnt work with him on rev.9

John turned down the deal to buy rights back cause he was done with beatles, i think a few days ago or the same day John privately left the band. So Yoko took him away here

Paul's ego/anger made John angry but i think reason Paul was angry cause he was dead sick of yoko and im sure you know Paul always sang the word "Get Back " while looking at yoko

I hate to say it but Yoko had a charm which attracted John

Paul also have said that he knew beatles were going down when yoko hooked up with John, i think he said that in anthology vid while discussing Abbey Road

Jane, Pattie, Maureen neither Cyn were at studio during recording so why Yoko ?

Paul didn't buy rights in 80's cause he was wishing that Yoko also pay the half the price. Paul could buy rights but i heard the story that he didn't buy cause people would call him the alone owner of beatles 

and at last i do like yoko cause she mad John happy but John's music quality went downhill and i also wish he wasn't so obsessed with yoko which made he leave beatles

I'm not looking for posts filled with anger, i have just shared my opinions

Peace and Love heart

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8They would have had to play a second rooftop performance as these songs were recorded between 22 February - 19 August 1969 and the original rooftop concert was 30 Janurary.

But I agree with you, that would have been incredibly cool if they could have snuck up there in August or September and belted out that medley before the cops had a chance to go up and bust them - maybe even throw in 'Her Majesty ' as a one-fingered exclamation point!a-hard-days-night-john-1

Yes yes, obviously. Either that ahdn_paul_06 or they should've  recorded the mix before and played it on the rooftop cause anything the second time is not quite as mind blowing as the first time.  I heard the mixing only a month or so back and saw a clip of it being performed by the Wings. That was amazing which led me to imagine how cool it would have been had the Beatles not stopped touring and performed this live. Cooler if the location happened to be the rooftop.

I wish John had sang Goodnight and had not given it to Ringo.

Also, I think Help should have been recorded slower like John wanted it.

I wish "Leave My Kitten Alone " had gone on Beatles For Sale instead of "Mr. Moonlight." I wish they'd have released "That Means A Lot " as I love that song. I wish "What's The New Mary Jane "  and
Not Guilty " had gone on the White Album , as well as "Revolution 1 (Take 20)" (instead of Revolution 9 , which was based on the excised coda from take 20). I wish the band had recorded "Come And Get It " for Abbey Road (and perhaps replaced "Maxwell's Silver Hammer " with it).  And I wish they had taken a break but not broken up and put out a really spectacular album in 1971/72 made up of a lot of the songs that ended up on McCartney, POB, RAM, ATMP , Imagine , etc.

I used to feel that way, but now I appreciate the idea of George Martin compositions appearing on a record that a million people have bought. Just think of the royalties he must have earned! (Guy deserves to be rich)

I like the Jazz Bass White Album sound on While My Guitar Gently Weeps and those. I'd like to know what it would sound like if Paul did the Hey Bulldog bass part with the Jazz Bass.

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

What do you mean "jazz bass" sound?  It seems to sound like pretty straight-ahead rock bass style to me...

He's referring the actual brand - the Fender Jazz bass. As opposed to the Precision, Fender's other big seller.

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!"

I just listened to Anthology version of Boys and it's blasting. Love how Ringo sounds here (especially at "My girl says when I kiss her lips, gets a thrill through her fingertips" part). Wish we had both on PPM , but that'd be silly

I know it's heresy, but cut the coda in Hey Jude from 19 repetitions to only 5 or 6. I'm sure that the extended repetitions have artistic and symbolic meaning, but, honestly Paul just loses me in all that redundancy. I can't believe I am alone in that feeling.

You aren't, trust me. I almost never listen to Hey Jude simply because it takes so long to end. I know I could just stop listening earlier, but that would feel like heresy for some reason.a-hard-days-night-paul-8
