More on George Harrison and the Beatles: Something

In a recent post, I linked to some studio audio showing the creative process of George Harrison and the Beatles composing “Something.” As an added treat, here’s an excellent video with the isolated vocals of the final product. It’s really quite telling to hear the lush sounding vocals of Mr. Harrison along with Paul McCartney. Knowing this recording was made in days before autotune and modern studio trickery, makes it all the more impressive.
