    Saved by the lead guitar.

    And I would have LOVED Oh Darling if only Paul would've let John sing it like he wanted. Since when did John let Babyface push him around? That's not the real John who nearly beat Bob Wooler to death. That's what the drugs did to John - made him passive and Paul eagerly leapt into the breach. Which may have turned out alright in the end. But I kind of missed John after Walrus.

    I get the impression that Lennon was a fairly unpleasant person...

    Honestly none of his Beatles granny tracks are sub par in any way imo.

    When I’m Sixty Four? She’s Leaving Home? Elenor Rigby? Don’t think so...

    Makes sense that cool older albums would be topping sales charts. I don't think the younger industry owned artists are releasing full albums are they?

    I thought they only threw singles together for YouTube to then promote with fake view counts, viral/ recommended ratings etc until viewing them becomes nearly unavoidable.

    GRAMMY PREDICTION

    Having just listened to the vinyl box front to back (Yes. It’s 530 am), I would like to nominate ABBEY ROAD for Best Rock Album and ALBUM OF THE YEAR.

    And the BEATLES as Best New Artist.

    :winks

    I really like the new mix for the 50th Anniversary. It gives the instruments more breathing room. And the outtakes are fascinating

    Think about the fact that this music is almost 51 years old and was recorded in a bleak Abbey Road studio with inferior (by today's standards) equipment.

    Quite an achievement!

    It's interesting to note that the last time all four Beatles were working in the studio together was for the final mixdown of I Want You/She's So Heavy, on 8/20/1969. The abrupt ending was Lennon's idea, and a quite symbolic act, when you realize it was the last moment they all worked together.

    From Wikipedia:

    "The final overdub session for "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", which included the final mixing and editing, was the last time all four Beatles worked in the studio together.

    The final master lasted 8:04, but Lennon decided on a surprise ending. During the final edit with the guitars, drums and white noise climaxing endlessly, he told recording engineer Geoff Emerick to "cut it right there" at the 7:44 mark, bringing the song (and Side 1 of Abbey Road) to an abrupt and much remarked on end."

    I think the song has a great line in it. For some reason it makes me laugh each time I hear it: “PC 31 says we’ve caught a dirty one”.
