30 May 1968. The first day of the White Album  sessions, which saw 18 takes of Revolution (1) recorded.

Did John just take her there without previous notice? Or did he “ask permission” to do it? Does anybody know the other Beatles’ reaction?

I think the reactions were something like

Why paul never played Martha My Dear in any show? I love that song (oh dear that piano xD).

Probably because it was an obscure album track he wrote/performed without John or George, that was snuck on the White Album and serves as 2 and a half minutes of relief after the brilliance of While My Guitar Gently Weeps and the intensity of Happiness Is A Warm Gun . I love the song, but it’s not a concert song

He just took her, I believe. And the others didn’t want her there. I can’t remember where I have read this though. Will try to find a source.

Yeah, John turned up with Yoko in tow and the others never had a clue. There is no way John would have even have thought of asking for their permission to bring her in.

There’s a video on Y-Tube about the lost solo of Here Comes The Sun , why beatles didn’t put it on the track. It’s melodious a-hard-days-night-george-9. John/Paul opposition ?

@Hey Jude ! As it’s a George song, and he played the lost solo, he would have been the one to reject it. They often tried out ideas that sound great to us but that they just felt weren’t quite what they were after.

Thanks, Oudis. I have to admit, I can see why it was cut. I find it a little distracting.

I don’t like it with the solo, the entire song is a masterpiece- one of the few songs I believe is absolutely perfect, the vocals, the strings, the drums, the synthesizer- everything is brilliant.

The solo is quite jarring- it’s like a perfect chocolate cake and then somebody puts lemon juice over it  ahdn_paul_01

That’s a good way to put it.

It sounds good as it is. Sometimes less is more.

I understand @parlance’s and @AppleScruffJunior’s feelings, however it should be noted that the above version is an “outfake”. To my knowledge no original mix with the “lost solo” in place has leaked yet (I’m sure others will correct if I’ve got this wrong). The above version is the standard version with the solo added “on top”.

Until a real version emerges, all we have is an approximation of what it might have sounded like. The above version doesn’t reveal how the solo sounded when properly mixed and balanced in the track as a whole, where it might not sound quite as jarring.

Yip, its a fan-created fake, you can tell by the levels being out of place, so what you’re hearing isn’t how it will be on the actual studio take. 

An alternate version of ‘Here Comes The Sun ‘ was one of the tracks earmarked for possible inclusion on ‘Anthology 3 ‘, maybe it was a take with the solo but for whatever reason got culled.

I’m glad you guys confirmed the solo was a fake. I had never heard this and my first thought was not how bad the guitar sounded (and it was horrid), but rather how bad the overdub was – very poorly mixed.

The solo is George, Zig (see video below) , the full 3-minute take is a fake.

Apologies if i misunderstood your post.

That’s what I meant – that particular mix was a fake mix that I had never heard – when the guitar solo started in the mix up above (post # 251), I almost fell out of my chair because it was so much louder than what was going on behind it. I had seen the above video (with DH, GeM and GiM) several times. The mix directly above makes the guitar solo sound less horrid but it was still not George’s best work. I’m very glad the finished version sounded as it did.
