It has somehow fallen upon me to select the song for this month, and I pick "Yesterday." All hate mail should be directed squarely to my personal address. :)

Ok, despite knowing for a few days which song you were going to choose, i hadn't started, or even thought about what to do.
Let the fun begin.

Ha, I'm First !! (and I had no inside information....)

I'm pretty sure that Yesterday is the most often covered Beatles song. Can we still do something original with it, after more than 40 years of messing about by the worlds greatest singers/musicians ? That is quite a Challenge for this month, thanks Richard !

Could not do that alone, but - fortunately - had help from Robbie Williams. Sounds different when you hear it, just listen to it twice and you will not forget it ever.....

And that is the point of Yesterday; cherish the memories, have some regrets, and always look forward. I think that sir Paul has done a great job at that.

:shock: :lol:

haha, I actually meant a good vocal of paul saying scrambled eggs (he has told the story many times) to substitute in the track.

trust me, you don't want me singing either!

Well it started off Ok, but then the pitching seemed to go wild!
...It's a bad habit of mine, but you don't HAVE to use the whole of whatever you're mixing...if bits don't fit, then you can leave them out!
....add something else, or repeat good parts...not too much though!

p.s. Sting looks like a Gremlin! :lol:

Five tracks that i've been messing with....probably not 100% happy with any, but they're worth a listen.
A Paul solo performance with his Beatles vocal,
Beatles vocal with backing from Natalie Imbruglia (Torn),
Beatles vocal with backing by Jason Falkner,
...a very silly one with Dylan,
and a remix of the Macca/Beatles one.

http://www.virb.com/mp3j/music/albums/68183

...i'll do at least one more too.

Some 4 to 5 live recordings of Yesterday survive, with largely varying sound quality.

None of them are in Stereo; until today, that is !

For the first time, in glorious stereophonic sound (provided your turntable is equipped to reproduce stereo), and a little help from our friends at NHK, we present: Yesterday !

Yeah, it is of course the combination of June 30 and July 1 performance in Japan. No recording of the July 2 show has surfaced to my hard disk, so I showed the ticket instead.......

Amazingly, the beat differed by less tha 0.5% between these 2 live perfomances; and still,this could have been even less since some diference in tape speed may have occured as well (I slighlty corrected the pitch of one perfomance).

Txs, Paul's voice does not carry as far as Robbie's.......
Pls spread the word; actually, I did NOT change pitch or tempo of either song to make this match ! was still quite a puzzle to make the melody fit snugly with the chord changes, but the result is like a 1+1=3 surprise.

And, Yes It Is.

Good find, would expect he moods of the 2 songs to sit together well. I suppose that Sting's level of composition is insufficient to carry Paul's melodic lines. This a prejiduice of mine, I know; alsways felt that Police was good, pleasure to listen to, but not a world class song writing machine. Let's face it: 'Every Breath' is a rip off from Albinoni in the riff sections, and the middle eight consist of not much more than the repetition of 2 chords......
So, I think you have made the most of this combination, and sorry if you're a Police fanatic.........

Sort of a 5.1 mix..... Very different approaches; I think I like the Dylan version best; laid back interpretation, with the tycial Dylan intonation, yet quite serious. Perhaps you can re-visit this one, and bring it up to your usual high standards ?

no, i don't think so, Dylan (and George) do it just too sloppily....that's about as good as it'll get.

Had another go at it - can be found at the same place: http://phattbuzz.podomatic.com/

Deleted the other version. It just didn't sound very good to me. That's what I get for mixing late night with headphones on.

With this version I recreated a vocal-free version of the "Why Can't You See? - You Belong To Me" section and put McCartney's vocals over that.

I think you'll find this a much better listen.

Yesterday's Breath-Much fun.I liked it a lot.A fine pairing.

mp3j yesterday.-it's a journey,but a fun one.It would test some people's patience because of the length,but it was fine with me.

yesterday (lie)-comes across very strong.My fave so far this month.

The first three turned out quite well.

Then we come to the Dylan version - The 2 versions just can't sync up properly. Dylan just has a completely different way of phrasing - although it's an interesting listen, once is more than enough. hehe).

Not too much into the last version - drums are a bit monotonous.

Listening to this version now. The backing track puts quite a different twist to the song. Quite interesting. Kudos.

That's a nice collage, well done.
It's similar to a thing i did a few years ago....tying together many different versions of "Yesterday".
