The Beatles: On this day in music history

January 27

Most music buffs know that The Beatles were an English rock band founded in 1960. They were perhaps the  most critically and commercially successful acts in history. The line-up from 1962 on included: John Lennon (guitar, keys, and vocals), Paul McCartney (bass, keys, guitar and vocals), George Harrison (guitar, keys and vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, percussion, piano and vocals).

On this day in music history, there were several noteworthy, memorable Beatles-related moments.  The events date from 1969 through 1970.

The Beatles 1969

On this day in 1969 The Beatles were once again in the recording studio.  They were working on perfecting “Get Back”.  After many attempts they managed to nail one releasable recording—the one that closes the Let It Be platter.  It’s preceded by John’s now famous parody: “Sweet Loretta Fart she thought she was a cleaner but she was a frying pan.”

They also managed to tape “Oh! Darling” which would later be included on Abbey Road and  a jamming cover of a minor Jimmy McCracklin hit titled “The Walk”.  They also worked on “I’ve Got A Feeling”.  The second engineer was again Alan Parsons (Alan Parsons Project).

The Beatles 1970

On this day in 1970 The Beatles laid down the first stereo remix of “The Inner Light”.  This particular version would not see the light of day, however, until 1981 when it would be dusted off an included on The Beatles, a bonus EP that was included in The Beatles EP Collection boxed set.
