The Bertles? The Beagles?
My friend, a bass player, sent to this me last night. We had been playing around with this in the studio, amazed yet again by how The Beatles music can seem approachable until you start to play it. Then you realize, it's not just about the right chords and tuned instruments. These guys were pretty good.
But something feels odd about hearing this with the bass and drums (sort of) isolated. It almost doesn't feel like The Beatles. The first wail of "She's SO..." doesn't sound like John to me, or any of them really. And while the bass and drums absolutely sound like Paul and Ringo, something about it feels different.
Is it me?
