    BEATLES WHITE ALBUM...Brilliant Live Performance Rendition by the Analogues

    The Analogues, a Dutch group, featuring their recent live performance in Holland of the Beatles White Album. IMO they just knock it out of the park!

    From Wikipedia:

    "The Analogues are a Dutch tribute act to The Beatles. Founded in 2014, the Analogues' ambition has been to perform The Beatles' music from their later studio years live, using analogue and period-correct instrumentation. From the start the Analogues have distinguished themselves by performing songs and whole albums live, which The Beatles themselves never played live; supported by brass and strings. Appearance-wise the band makes no effort to look like The Beatles, but they are called masters at recreating and reproducing the original sound.

    In June 2017 Dutch national TV-broadcaster NTR aired a one-hour documentary about the painstaking process of analysing The Beatles' complex compositions and experimental use of studio equipment, as well as acquisition of the proper analogue instruments, in preparation of live rendition of the Sgt. Pepper's album. Before an album can be played, the multi-layered arrangements are fully written out by the band."


    Of special note to George Harrison & Eric Clapton fans.... is guitarist Jac Bico's take on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"....played on his Gibson Gold Top Les Paul. Jac knocks it out of the park!

    Great stuff!
    The level of musicianship required to pull this material off boggles my mind.


    Also worthy of mentioning is Phish 1994:

    FYI....."While My Guitar Gently Weeps", the song George Harrison wrote and asked Eric Clapton to play on begins @ 18:02 if you wish to skip ahead and watch it. Jac Bico, the lead guitar player in the Analogues lays down a killer performance on this tune.

    I sure wish the Analogues would come to the U.S. and tour. However, I recognize the dangers in shipping overseas their inventory of priceless and rare vintage instrument...... especially the fragile vintage pianos, melotrons, organs, harpsichord, guitars and amps.

    The intended subject of this thread is the Analogues' recent live performance of the Beatles White Album

    So......John Lennon's voice on the White Album...

    If you had done your research you would know that from the Beatles' seminal 1967 LP "Sergeant Pepper......" onward, studio engineers, under the direction of George Martin and the group itself, employed the novel studio technique called "flanging" on nearly all songs, soundtracks, and vocals recorded at Abby Road. The recording studio's application of flanging introduced frequency modulation and distortion on selected soundtracks. They also modulated tape speed on many recordings which altered the pitch of voices considerably. John Lennon's voice in particular, was altered by studio flanging on nearly all tracks post-1967. The Beatle's goal was to be as creative as possible, and do things that had never been done; i.e., break new ground.

    So in effect...John Lennon didn't sound like John Lennon on the LPs.... Sergeant Pepper, the White Album, or any of the other LPs that followed.
