The Beatles- I'm Looking Through You
January 23, 2010
The Beatles, Rubber Soul, I'm Looking Through You, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
One of my favourites from Rubber Soul, I hope you enjoy!
The Beatles recorded three versions of the song in October and November 1,965. The original version recorded on 24 October was slower than the released version, had a significantly different rhythm, and lacked the "Why, tell me why..." middle eight of the final version. It was eventually released in 1,996 on the Anthology 2 compilation. The final version was recorded on 10 November with overdubs on 11 November and is the version included on Rubber Soul.
The stereo US version of the song contains a false guitar start.
If the mono version of this song on the US Capitol Versions Vol. 2 CD has this false guitar start, it indicates that it is from the first pressing of this set which erroneously substituted incorrect mono mixes; they were simply the channels of the stereo versions combined, rather than the original mono mixes.
The album sleeve and other sources indicate that Ringo Starr played Hammond organ on this track, an unusual instrument for the Beatle drummer. Mark Lewisohn reported that he could not hear the organ and that Hammond organ was not listed on the session tape box. Starr plays quick two-note vamps in the choruses.
