Sessions for the " White Album " began on May 30th, , but it wasn't until the last week of recording that George's beautiful "Long, Long, Long" was first brought into the studio. While in the control room, as various pictures show, George began running through the song on acoustic guitar for his fellow bandmates to hear. They also enjoyed some dinner and snacks, a meal comprising of what looks like chicken, rice and bread along with Maryland cookies, milk for Ringo and a bottle of Blue Nun wine for George.
No known demo versions have ever surfaced, so this appears to have been the first time that Paul and Ringo had ever heard the song. This would make sense since it took 67 'takes' to get a suitable rhythm track recorded on this day. Photographic evidence shows that Paul was acquainting himself with the song on bass but then a decision was made for him to play organ on the rhythm track instead.
Also, Ringo was playing a make-shift double-bass drum set on this day, a combination of a new Ludwig Hollywood Maple drum kit that he just acquired as well as his usual Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl set.
After 'take 15,' for instance, Paul asked, "I tell you what, do you think I should be in all the time on the organ? The Lowrey organ playing by Band member Garth Hudson was a key ingredient to their sound, something in which Paul seemed to be emulating.
The impact of The Band on The Beatles was also evident in Paul singing a line in the chorus of their song "The Weight" during the filming of their promo for " Hey Jude. This appartenly wasn't the case during this session, evidenced by Paul exclaiming after 'take 29,' "I don't mind how long it takes at the moment. That intro was great! It begins with Paul fooling around on organ which prompts George to get things under control by saying: "Right, here we go.
Here we go, lads! We're really not what we make out to be laughs , that's all I can say. They're very Rishikesh joss-sticks! The take is going quite nicely until it breaks down just after the bridge, which encourages George to start reciting lyrics to an unpublished song he had been working on entitled "Gathering Gesturing," which was an exercise in alliterative word play, while Paul and Ringo plods on in the background.
Similar wordplay was also scribled at the top of an early draft lyric sheet of " While My Guitar Gently Weeps ," which indicates that he had been laboring over this song idea for some time. After George releaves some tension by chunking away on some guitar chords, he reels his bandmates back in by saying, "Right-o, lads, sock-it-to-me one more time," this phrase being a jokey reference to a hip 60's phrase of the time. George apartently wasn't too happy with 'take 48,' after which he stated, "The one before that, I really felt that one was it.
Use the one before. From 'take 57' onward, he comes in at a strategic spot of the first verse and then plays in dramatic areas of the song thereafter. George, however, began to get a little frustrated after 'take 63,' where he exclaims, "Come on, lads. Any of those will do me. Any of them. At the end of 'take 65, a happy accident occurred which eventually made it onto the finished version of the song.
It just happened. Paul hit a certain organ note and the bottle started vibrating. This image is a cover of an audio recording, and the copyright for it is most likely owned by either the publisher of the work or the artist s which produced the recording or cover artwork in question.

Although Harrison later stated that he was addressing God in the lyrics, it is the first of his compositions that invites interpretation as both a standard love song and a paean to his deity.

Yes, it is a real thing…. Having released 10 full-length studio albums in eight years, the LA troubadour was as prolific as he was seemingly unlucky in love. Cardinology continued on a running theme of broken hearts.
Although his work in the latter Lost Highway years divided his fans in equal measure, for me, it marked a return to the quality of his Love Is Hell country rock years with strong songwriting, hooky melody and a sense of reflection. Brightblack Morning Light essentially have one song—but lord have mercy, what a wondrous song it is. Generally speaking, the nine songs here creep in on worn-out moccasins, emit a holy glow, and slouch into a groove akin to Dr.
Nay and Ray croon as if trying not to wake a baby in the next room — a vocal style that perfectly melts into the molasses-y ASMR-rock they summon. Ultimately, Motion To Rejoin ranks as one of the greatest records to play first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Yes morphs from sinewy, electric violin-swirled rock into a foggy shoegaze gem called Chinese Sleep Chant ; Strawberry Swing is dewy soul-pop; and Viva La Vida is a pulsating march soaring with pizzicato strings.
Having only ever released one full-length album, the project was a short-lived one. However, I consistently find myself returning to that one album, even a decade removed from its release. I spent most of in the back of vans, crossing three different continents, and on every one of them, being absolutely wide-eyed at how damn impressive Modey Lemon was on my iPod.Satoko Fujii, Joe Fonda - Duet (CD, Album) Long Song Records: LSRDC / Italy: Sell This Version: LSRLP/ Desertion Trio.
