Curious. Just watched Day in the Life vid again. Wondering if Johnny Rhythm played with the color of his hair. It's not just the lights in the vid, it seemed different shades in several pics and vids. Also noted that in his famous sleeveless NYC pic, his arms are covered with freckles. Ginger genes lurking in there somewhere? There, that's something to chew on over a Hallowe'en weekend! Have fun! Whee!

Oh, absolutely. John's mother Julia was a redhead. 

Interestingly enough, I think Paul's mother also had red hair, but Paul's hair was much darker and not-reddish than John's (though nowadays he keeps it a violent shade of chestnut).

Was listening to Yesterday ... And Today and then Revolver (UK) and wondered, how did the Capitol people choose which songs to take off? I highly doubt they gave it much thought. Did they draw numbers from a hat or something?

Do you mean those albums in particular, or in general? 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

When tracks appeared on "invented" Capitol albums before their UK release, @Beatlebug, it was a case of taking what was reluctantly given.

A request would come through from Capitol that they needed x amount of tracks to give them enough for another album, and GM and The Beatles would look at the work in progress and send whatever they considered finished.

So, in the case of Yesterday and Today, Capitol requested three tracks, and were sent the three tracks GM and The Beatles considered ready and didn't give away too much about the next UK album.

@Ron Nasty that answers my question, thank you. apple01 

I always imagined that Capitol were sent complete albums and just went through and picked them apart... guess I never looked too closely at the release dates a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Capitol should've just released the albums in UK order instead of scrambling the tracks around. The US albums sound butchered and are often in fake stereo instead of proper stereo, although they eventually got it right with Sgt. Pepper .

But the great part about the US albums is that they put the singles on the albums instead of making you buy them separately, something that UK releases eventually gave into as well. Unlike the UK albums, which missed so many songs that they made a double LP to correct for it, in the US discography (which is Meet The Beatles, The Beatles Second Album, A Hard Day's Night , Something New, Beatles 65', The Early Beatles, Beatles VI, Help !, Rubber Soul , Yesterday And Today, Revolver , Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour , The Beatles, Yellow Submarine , Abbey Road , Hey Jude , and Let It Be ), there are only a total of 5 tracks released in the UK (not counting alternate versions) that didn't make it onto an album (which are in order, Misery , There's A Place , I'm Down , The Inner Light , and You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)), which is enough to count on one hand. Also, I Feel Fine and She's A Woman without the added reverb is like Let It Be without the iconic album version solo.

You could argue that and while I do agree that it would be great if they added the singles as bonus tracks when they reissued the albums in 1987, you must realize that most people bought the singles and albums from their favorite band back in the day and having non album singles means no doubling up.

What do I think The Beatles represent?

Not standing still, baby, looking over the horizon.

Not just looking over the hedge to see if the grass is greener, but climbing over, and on the rare occasions it isn't, jumping a different hedge to see where that leads.

That standing still is going backwards, going over the same ground is death and to hell with what others say.

Stick with your own convictions and if it doesn't work out then at least you tried it. Same with experimenting, don't accept it cannot be done or let anyone stop you.

Be yourself as a musician and don't change just to please the suits and the squares.

"emblematize"

Is that a word? Not a AD40 word, but a real word?

To me, The Beatles are the 1960's. Sure there was The Beach Boys and Vietnam and all these other things, but The Beatles are the most popular music group of all time and from 1962-1970 released so many hit singles that it made Elvis jealous. Whether you were 4 or 44 back then, you knew who The Beatles were.

Except for Yoko, it seems.

There's 2 reasons to that:

1. Yoko's Japanese and The Beatles weren't as popular in Japan as they were in the US or UK.

2. Yoko's a very unusual person who thinks screaming like a 5 year old who didn't get the toy he wanted is proper music.

That's very illogical. Making some songs where you scream doesn't have anything to do with whether you recognize The Beatles or not.

It gets very tiring reading all the same comments attacking Yoko. If you are going to do it, please try to be original and not so boring.

There is a third.

She was lying, as was John, as it didn't fit into the johnandyoko bollocks they liked to spin.

And what a load of BS!

ANYONE who thinks The Beatles weren't popular in Japan hasn't seen the Budokan concerts.

Stop spouting racist shit. And suggesting The Beatles weren't as popular in Japan as they were in the US or UK is racist. The Beatles, by turnout, were not as popular in the US or UK as they were in Australia. The biggest ever audience for an audience.

Stop it with the anti-Yoko crap.

Criticise facts, not fiction.

And don't create facts, like The Beatles were not popular in Japan, to fit your fiction.

You do them a disservice.
