Band on the Run. Back in the U. Live and Let Die. I've Got a Feeling. Lady Madonna. Hey Jude. Let It Be. I Saw Her Standing There. At approximately pm, while roadie Neil Aspinall was out getting some fish and chips for the group, they started working on "I'll Follow The Sun. Eight takes of the full band arrangement many of them ending with eruptions of laughter were required before everyone was satisfied, but a couple of adjustments needed to be made as the session progressed.
Engineer Geoff Emerick explains: "At first they couldn't think of anything for Ringo to do - he played drums on a run-through, but it sounded all wrong, too aggressive and distracting; Paul wanted something more subtle. After a good deal of discussion, Paul came up with the idea of having Ringo just slap his legs in time, and that worked well.
Enthralled, I watched engineer Norman Smith carefully position a mic between Ringo's knees; then, back in the control room, he cranked up the EQ to add some extra depth to the sound. Paul explains further about this idea. We were thinking in terms of singles and the next one had to always be different. We didn't want to fall into The Supremes trap where they all sounded rather similar, so to the end, we were always keen on having varied instrumentation.
Ringo couldn't keep changing his drum kit, but he could change his snare, tap a cardboard box or slap his knees. Another adjustment had to do with the simple guitar solo. Geoff Emerick continues: "I found George Harrison's simpleminded eight-note solo - not even a solo, really just the melody line - downright embarrassing. He wasn't even supposed to play that solo: for the first few takes, John did it, on acoustic guitar. Despite the overall good vibe of the day, George Harrison seemed annoyed, perhaps because he hadn't been given much to do.
At one point he marched into the control room and complained loudly, 'You know, I'd like to do the solo on this one. I am supposed to be the lead guitarist in this band, after all.
George Martin reluctantly interceded for Harrison who was finally allowed to play the solo as an overdub. An effective touch to the recording was John's descending harmony lines in the bridge, or "middle-eight" as The Beatles would call them.
According to Geoff Emerick's book "Here, There and Everywhere," George Martin took the time to write this counter-melody for John to sing and taught it to him that day. Paul McCartney gave his second ever concert in Russia in St. Petersburg on 20th June. The square is surrounded by wonderful buildings and it's unlikely that Paul had done a concert in such a beautiful and historic setting before.
Paul had visited St Petersburg a year before on the eve of his Moscow concert. Apparently, he was very impressed by the city and agreed to play a concert there. We heard about Paul's concert early in the year. We were planning to get married in a few months and decided that the St Petersburg concert would be a perfect honeymoon destination.
Irina is originally from Moscow so we decided to go to the concert and then on to Moscow to see her friends and family. Fans came from all over Russia to see Paul. Extra trains were laid on from Moscow especially for people attending the concert.
