Beatles-White Album pt2-Paul McCartney,the late George Harrison

In the conclusion of our detailed look at the Beatles‘ November 25, 1968 double album release, three of the individual band members, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison flex their creative muscles knowing full well that they have shifted the balance of power forever from the record company board room  into the control room of EMI‘s Abbey Road studios, where even their loyal producer who worked for the label, the late Sir George Martin, reluctantly had no choice but to let them get on with it.

McCartney joins me In the Studio to explore the Beatles songs “Birthday”, Lennon’s “Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey”, Paul’s “Mother Nature’s Son”, one of three versions of “Revolution”, the campy pally band arrangement on “Honey Pie”, Lennon’s “Cry Baby Cry“, and the real inspiration behind the song which figured into the notorious Charles Manson multiple murder case,“Helter Skelter”. – Redbeard
