The obligatory America track with its Harrison-soundalike guitar intro

One of their better hits from this era. Including the nice couplet "I've been one poor correspondent; I've been too too hard to find..."

Gee I never knew he produced America, but I'll admit that I liked them a lot back in the day.  No coincidence I spose...
Now I'm eight bits...

I think he did four of their albums in the 70s, which would make him involved with quite a few of their hits.

Love this one. Funny them talking about running John's voice through a Leslie speaker, but it sounds quite natural to me. More so than on "LSD", for instance.

ETA: there's more of that effect on the third (?) verse.

Any truth to the rumor that it's not Ringo playing the drum solo in "The End"? That's what I'd always heard. (and that it was Paul)

Wow, I never heard that, would be really surprised if it was true...

I haven't heard that either; I always thought it sounded very Ringo-ish. I know Paul played drums on a number of other songs, particularly on the White Album.

Maybe I am thinking of something on the White Album. The "literature" certainly says that it was Ringo.
