Well John was waiting for me for me when I got home last night a little disheveled but no worse for wear from his adventures in USPS land, but what a long strange trip it was. Off tomorrow so will give it a listen then.
This is a great point. I have listened to all of Blu Ray 1, all the stereo chapters in the 24/192. I knew that this was an oppurtunity to get closer to John and Yoko. It is a little bit of a work out, of course you have the same 14 songs being very repetitive. I found the Evolution Mixes to be very good.What's really struck me after listening to a lot of it is how apparently lighthearted the recording sessions were. By now we all know the John Lennon Story and what he was thinking and going through at the time of POB, but clearly he and the rest were having *fun* at least part of the time.
Granted, we're hearing the best hand-picked bits from what are doubtless countless hours of tape, but still...
I've also been enjoying the back and forth between John and Ringo. I'm sure I knew at some point that Ringo drummed on the album, but it's probably another one of those bits of trivia that enters my head and then promptly exits it. That it's also Ringo backing Yoko's more out-there bits is also amusing to me.
Thanks very much for this info.
