The Beatles are streaming another song off the 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road, which will be released next Friday. This time it's"Come Together" as it appeared on the album, along with Take 5.
According to the album notes, they cut the John Lennon song on July 21st, 22nd and 23rd, 1969, followed by additional sessions on July 25th, 29th and 30th.
In a long ago interview, the late John Lennon talked about "Come Together,”
"I think it's pretty funky and I'm biased 'cause it's my song and I dig it, you know. It just happened well, you know. It's a nice funky sound on it. It's me going [SFX] on tape echo. I'm sort of going [SFX] through me hands like that." :16
The 50th anniversary edition of Abbey Road was remixed and produced by Martin's son, Giles Martin.
Fifty years ago this Sunday, September 22nd, 1969, The "Paul [McCartney] Is Dead" controversy was started when an Illinois college newspaper ran an article with the headline "Clues Hint at Beatle Death." The piece cites the Sgt. Pepper album cover and the line "I buried Paul," which John Lennon would later claim is "I'm very bored," in the fade out of "Strawberry Fields Forever."
The rumors only intensified a few days later when Abbey Road was released and word spread that the front cover contained numerous clues about Paul's so-called demise.
