Great vocals, harmonies, arrangement, bass, drums and guitar. IMHO
Simple, eloquent double tracked solo. And IIRC, it clocks in at under 3 minutes.
In many ways, the perfect single.
One of my Fab Four favorites. The first album I ever bought with my own money was Yesterday and Today. Every cut on that album is perfectly listenable.
Also great vocal harmonies...
It'a always amazing for me to listen to those albums that are 50+ years old, and marvel at the absolute beauty of the production and recording quality. So musical. No doubt a great song takes it a long way but you can hear everything on those recordings. Amazing.
The guitar solo is brilliant. Sounds like it goes from six strings, to five, to four, to three, to two, to one and then that harmonic that drifts off to infinity.
I first heard it when I was in the 3rd grade, in Mesa Az., 1965.
I was 8, and I knew exactly what I wanted to be if/when I grew up.
Hey, it's the Beatles!
It's George and John playing in unison, on Strats, IIRC.
I'm with mimmo. Sometimes words just fail to cover the full impact of a thing. The more I listen to them the more in awe I become. Always hearing some little thing I didn't notice before. They are truly both a musical and cultural phenomenon. Picked up a nice clean CD copy of Past Masters; great collection and nicely mastered.
When I used to teach music appreciation to non-majors, I often used Nowhere Man to illustrate the concept of a melodic sequence. Very clear, almost cut and dried in its phrase structure, this is one of my favorite songs from both a melodic and harmonic standpoint. And all the doubling in the studio just lit the track up.
In the right (wrong actually) state of mind, this tune can be devastating, turning old men into pensive, occasionally weepy spirits
One thing I marvel at when first talking to a new acquaintance, is finding out they too are a Beatles fan. But talk a little while, and you may find out they prefer the White album, or Magical Mystery Tour, when you prefer Rubber Soul or Meet The Beatles. There are millions of Beatles fans who don't really agree on just WHO the Beatles are.....while I generally like most of what they ever did, my PREFERENCE goes to early stuff. Please Please Me (the LP), With The Beatles (Meet The Beatles in the U.S.), A Hard Day's Night, etc. .....Rubber Soul and Revolver as well. They just "covered" so much ground it's hard to believe there are some people who just can't stand them......
I love that tune.
I listened to both versions side by side and the guitar is dead on the remastered. Not much improvment in vocals. I'll keep my original.
Great song. For a band that was only together for 8 years, they cranked out some good songs.
John, Paul & George: "We don't need any stinking Autotune."
Poor little fella.
I heard on the original recording, John and George both played their blue Strats that Mal had just picked up for them, so the guitars were all Strat!
It is so simple and so wonderful. That harmonic "ping" gets me every time.
