Quote from: IsavedLatin on February 19, 2022, 12:13:52 AMAfter quite a mean-spirited start, I found it very satisfying indeed. Definitely worth three quid!
Quote from: Kermit the Frog on February 15, 2022, 05:54:15 PMAmazingly off the mark, you think John Lennon never expressed something essential to himself through his music? That George Harrison never did?
Quote from: timebug on February 24, 2022, 09:06:20 AMAs a total Beatles fan who grew up with them (as it were!) I was lent the Craig Brown book recently. It's a pile of shit. Don't bother, at £2.99 it is approximately £2.99 too much!
Quote from: jamiefairlie on February 24, 2022, 04:26:48 PMYeah I don't think I captured what I meant clearly. It was less lyrically and more musically I meant. My favourite bands all have a core musical identity which captures and expresses a key element in their character. I can't imagine those bands trying out a jazz song or a show song or a southern rock song because it doesn't fit with their core musical identity. The Beatles did do this all through their career, like trying on new musical clothes. It's admirable in a way, showing their desire to learn and grow but it also highlights their interests in being technical musicians/composers.
Quote from: SteveDave on June 24, 2022, 11:44:46 AMIs there a bootleg with every complete recording of the 1969/"Get Back" sessions? Not everything from every day, just one where someone's gone through those and picked out the best/complete takes of songs?
QuoteThis is a new collection of re-edited material from the Nagra tapes (Get Back sessions of January 1969). It marks the 50th anniversary of the sessions. All tracks have been edited to cover up errors, repair break-downs and deliver the music as a set of complete, presentable performances. Songs are topped and tailed, those annoying camera bleeps erased, and good but fragmented sections of songs stitched back together to create whole, flowing performances.The tracks are sequenced in order of recording, so we start on the morning of day 1 - with just John and George strumming through their new material - and continue through the various twists and turns of the sessions, George's absence, on to the rooftop gig, and the very end of proceedings on January 31.There are a total of 171 tracks in the collection, spanning 20 working days, and every track is identified and explained in the 100-page booklet, which also includes a selection of images from the exact times the songs were being recorded.And - as an added attraction - disc 7 contains a Beatles rehearsal album called "Sleep of the Beatles", which was found buried in the Nagra rubble - you can now hear it properly, for the first time.
