Well, there it is, track 7, For You Blue (1969 Glyn Johns Mix) 2:54 DR 9.Well, it looks like our friend Marpow is one lucky feller. The Japanese box set includes a different Glyn Johns version of a Harrisong. I think it's fantastic news but I'm sure there will be lots of bitching and moaning about this.
The SHM-CD contains the same number of song. The difference is that the Japan CD contains a different version of the song. All other version sout there physical and for download/streaming contain the other version. The Japan set is unique for this different version of the song.Well, there it is, track 7, For You Blue (1969 Glyn Johns Mix) 2:54 DR 9.
It seems strange to me they would add a song on the SHM CD, not on others. It is certainly not a game changer in this box set, I listened to it, whatever, it's not that great. It was not advertised. I think it was put in there to create spin with the die hard Beatles fans.
That IS a haunting interpretation, and beautiful! I’ve always been partial to Bowie’s cover with John from Young Americans, it’s so very soulful.It's a great song, but there are quite a few different Beatles versions of it, official and not official. Hopefully one of them is close to what John wanted it to be.
It's very OT, but the version done by Fiona Apple that plays at the end of the film "Pleasantville" is a particularly nice one, a bit haunting at that. I remember watching that movie on DVD way back when, and at the end when that song came on I was pretty much floored. Not just because the version was pretty damn good, but because they used that song. One of my fav's from way back when.
Huh. Always been one of my favorites. The Wildlife version, that is! The Spector mix that runs at the wrong speed (slow to the point of hearing exaggerated tape warble and everything) with the cheesy musak style overdubs and missing all the vocal harmonies is one of the reasons for my hate of his work. Dude was messing around with his juvenile overdubs and didn't notice the meters moving on the vocal harmony tracks apparently.Interesting quote of John about the recording of Across The Universe I found on Beatles Bible. Seems like John really disliked the release!
It was a lousy track of a great song and I was so disappointed by it. It never went out as The Beatles; I gave it to the Wildlife Fund of Great Britain, and then when Phil Spector was brought in to produce Let It Be, he dug it out of the Beatles files and overdubbed it. The guitars are out of tune and I’m singing out of tune ’cause I’m psychologically destroyed and nobody’s supporting me or helping me with it and the song was never done properly.

I’ve had the same exact experience so you’re not alone.So.....I got the shipping confirmation e-mail from Deep Discount on the 14th. In my usual OCD fashion, I checked the shipping status on the USPS site daily. (OK, multiple times each day, LOL). They said anticipated delivery date was the 20th. On the 15th it was at a USPS distribution center in Pittsburgh. Since then, nothing. Now the tracking just says "In transit. Arriving late." Not happy!
Same thing with my set.So.....I got the shipping confirmation e-mail from Deep Discount on the 14th. In my usual OCD fashion, I checked the shipping status on the USPS site daily.

So I just checked again. My package arrived in Pittsburgh on the 15th and then the tracking sat in limbo until about an hour (i.e., 8 days later) when it showed up to in Springfield, MA (on the other side of the state). This means that, if it proceeds routinely from there, I should receive it on Monday or Tuesday.Same thing with my set.
