Lost Solo For “Here Comes The Sun”?

Found this over on Bobby Owsinksi’s blog. A very rare look at what could have been included in the final version of the Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun”. George Harrison apparently played a solo for the middle section that was never used in the final version. Plus, as the video moves along you hear some Hammond organ that in the final version is either missing or gets heavily buried in the mix. Very interesting.

A side note: The funniest part of the whole thing for me is that George Martin has no idea that the final version didn’t include the guitar solo. Amazing in that it shows that he doesn’t listen to the very songs that made him the recognized producing genius that he is.

NOTE: I have no idea how long this video will be up until EMI removes it. So, view it while ya can!

Part 2 of my series, Got a Spare Bedroom? Let’s Make a Studio!, will be coming later this week. I’ll be showing my process on adding acoustic treatment to the studio. So, be sure to come back and visit if that peaks your interest.

Till then…
