Sound and Vision: The Creation of The Beatles’ Last Song and the Rebirth of Red and Blue

The Sound and Vision article “The Creation of the Beatles’ Last Song and the Rebirth of Red and Blue” not only discusses the creation of “I Me Mine,” but also touches upon the recording of other significant songs like “Free As a Bird,” “Real Love,” and “Now and Then.”

“Free As a Bird” was based on a 1977 demo recorded by John Lennon in New York and completed by the other three Beatles 17 years later. The recording process for this song was reportedly more enjoyable for McCartney, Harrison, and Starr than when they later recorded “Real Love.” Both these songs were approached in a similar manner, using John’s original demo as a backing track.

“Now and Then” is another song that stands out. This song, along with ‘Free As A Bird’ and ‘Real Love,’ forms a beautiful coda to the greatest pop, offering one more treasure for fans of The Beatles.

The article also delves into the reissue of two compilation albums, the “Red” (1962-1966) and “Blue” (1967-1970), providing a comprehensive overview of The Beatles’ music legacy.

In conclusion, the article provides a fascinating insight into the creation and recording process of some of The Beatles’ notable songs and the renewal of their iconic compilation albums.
