Roll Up, Roll Up, for the Song of the Month !

Tried a scientific approach to select this month's song; so far, we re-mixed 4 White tracks, 2 Peppers, and An abbey Road, Mystery Tour, Let It be, and a Help !

Striking isn't it ? Clearly a prefernce for the later period of the Beatles, the Help track (Yesterday) is the 'oldest' one we covered (and pretty a-typical for that).

I figured there must be an explantion for this biased selection for the SOTM; could it be that good isolations are not availalble for the old mono tracks, or perhaps the BRG remixers were not born yet when these LP's were released ?

Don't worry, I decided to go with the flow, and stick to the later period; I landed on I've Got a Feeling, because it is a decent track on Let It Be, there is actually some Lennon-Mcartnet interaction, and - most importantly, the left/right separtion is quite good on the original LIB release. Furthermore, there is the Let It Be Naked elease, which is slighltly different, and probaly a host of '30 days' outtakes. Enough to play with, I hope.

So there it is, can't wait to hear what you come uop with !

Yes this is a good selection, just in time for the 40th anniversary of the rooftop concert! Last month I almost picked "Inner Light" or "Old Brown Shoe" as there seems to be lacking of Harrisongs :cry: Good Luck To All!

Actually, my initial thought was to go for a Harrisong. But after my heroic struggle with Dear One, decided that this could be a bit too much of a challenge. GH's chord progresssions are not so easy to match with Lennon-Macca tracks, and he wrote his best work when the Beatles were breaking up (and afterwards).

If I ever get a chance, then I would like to remix I Need You. rather simple tune, so must be more remixable than later work. The released version ranks amongst the poorest produced Beatles tracks ever; sounds like Lennon did not show up at all, McCartney repeats a 2-note baseline, and Ringo just thumps on the off-beat. And the backing vocals express nothing but boredom...

We must be able to improve on this. Hint for a future challenge ?

Thanks 4 making this challenge, i will give it a whirl, a broken arm makes it a little difficult 2 do much, tho, so we will see. Hope MP3J shows up w/ some of his usual greatness, he hasn't been around 4 awhile now. And maybe some of our newcomers will join in as well.

Alright, I'll go first, then. To get off the mark, I kept this one simple. just a different sound, and a different take. It is 'take 2' of the rooftop concert, built of from the camera sound track on the rooftop, and across the stret. I also included parts of the monitor mix, also of take 2.
This version sound a bit more mellow than the releaed track, a sublte pleasurre.....

Good ambiance! Sounds like your right down there on the street looking up and toe tapping! The fusing of all the elements added just the right balance to put a smile on this face! Thanks for sharing!! The bass seemed a little deep though, but the whoops coming from Macca was a nice touch! Needed a little brighter treble on the Lennon duo as well :wink: Just a little more of a wet dream :D

Thanks for the comments.
Not sure where the clashes are, but a libe performance can always contain some glitches.

yeah, Lennon's vocals do sound a bit muffled. tried to find ou why, and noticed that Lennons voice is recorded low in the mix of the A-camera. Hence, the D camera sound becomes more dominant, and - being quite some disctance away, sounds less brilliant.

I am not alogether clear on how these camera rolls were recorded druing therooftop concert. I know the A-camera was on the roof, D-camera on the roof opoosite, C-camera in the control room, and D-camera roamed around the street and reeception area. Well, what about a B Camera ? I could not find a sound track for a B camera, so did it exist a tall ?

.Image


I think yes ! I looked at this photo, and I see 2 cameras on the rooftop. These must be A and B. no idea if a soundtrack ever existed for the B-camera.

having localised the camera, still not sure how they recorded the sound. There were special (Nagra) recorders for the cameras, but how dud they get their input ? Presumable from the same muxing panel as the (8 track) recorder, but then I'm puzled how there can beseparate A- and B- scrolls fdor much of these sessions.

Macca's makeshift vocals added nice backup to McCartney's leads in Helter Skelter, who would have thought that both would sync so well! Good Job!! :D

There were a couple bum notes in it that didn't sound right, but then they might have been played that way, that is what i meant. sometimes they hit wrong notes.

yes, there are b cam rolls, i have them somehwere in collection, they don't get much listen from me. there was also an a cam/b cam disc release too

yeah, it started with the lennon bits at the end, which i spread to beginning and end. i also liked the "All these years" part, the rest of the mix was really worked around that. couldn't fit in some of the lyics [the miss the train bit], they just didn't fit anywhere. but still fun!

I've Got A Feeling is one of the Beatles' bluesiest jams. I've been enjoying BDJ's & TJT's mixes (Guess I need a three letter moniker - PHB - nah). BDJ's version has some great alternate vocals. Handpicked from the 30 Days sessions? TJT's Helter Skelter drums make an excellent heavy background for the song.

We're a little more than half-way through the month, hopefully there are more mixes/mashes coming.

Hay everyone, some great stuff so far, keep up the good work.

Here is mine for this month

The basis of the track is a mix of different takes from the thirty days discs, then with lots of different Beatles stuff sprinkled on top, I’ll let you figure out which songs are hidden in there :lol:

pretty good! i thought it was a good choice of combination. the John vocals seemed a little too rushed together. also liked the IGAF guitar loop

One of the reasons i went with Helter Skelter is that this song is very tough to get a good vocal extraction, and you almost need a "noisy" song to hide the vocal extraction residue, so that makes it tough.

On various occasions, Macca said he woulds pretend to be someone else, to feed his inspiration for a new song. Suppose the Magical Mystery Tour, Sgt Pepper are examples of porjects, Ray Charles was also mentioned.

So who did he think about when writing I've Got A Feeling ? The song is very 'personal' for a Macca song, it's not a story about soemone of some place like many other Macca songs. And it has a continuous guttar riff....a name comes to mind ? For me, could very well be Lennon. Macca was sort of reachibg out (Hey Jude, Two of Us), so why not ?

Anyway, does fit reasonably well witrh Please Please Me, the first Lennon no 1.

Yeah, mashes well in several parts. The 'sawdust' vocals give it a sense of unity. Might also heave been entered in the Helter Skelter challenge.....

Several nice touches here; such as forming the refrain from the Lennon lyrics, the Billy Preston hook in the middle, and the lyrics, of course. Makes for a pleasurable listen !

Nice one ! certainly a challenge to pick out all the fragmets. Even one or two Harrisongs there !

And well compiled, from all the 30 days versions. Might even be a good listen without the various fragments, just the compilation of IVGAF.
