Knapp picks his own bumpers, doesn't he?

Goodnight lightweights Wow. Haven't thought of this song in a long time. Psychedelic George
Culling the herd. The smart guys have all left. Except you, of course
LOL! Are we being taught that now?
It was recorded during the Sgt. Pepper sessions in May of 1967. Fueled by his LSD trips, by the late summer, George sort of lost interest in the track after visiting Haight-Ashbury in August of that year. He was so turned off by the scene in San Francisco, that he denounced LSD afterwards. He only released it when the Beatles were pressed for material to release on the soundtrack of the film.
It's All Too Much. A very obscure Beatles track...if there is such a thing...found only on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack.
That's a nice factoid. I can imagine why he was turned of by the scene in San Francisco.
Hate to admit it but my eyelids are drooping. A very pleasant evening with my favorite people. Sweet Dreams, all. No jungle nightmares
As I remember the story goes his limo pulled over into Golden Gate Park, and a bunch of hippies started insisting he play some songs on his acoustic guitar and, well ... it was all too much.
I've been listening and lurking tonight. Good show tonight but I'm recovering from a migraine. I always get them in the spring when the weather starts changing.
My sympathies. I'm a regular migraine sufferer too
Harrison had sworn off acid after visiting the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco in August, with Pattie Boyd, Derek Taylor and others. He said he found himself disillusioned at how, rather than an enlightened micro-society, Haight-Ashbury seemed to be a "haven for dropouts and drug addicts." His words not mine. He commented on this also on the anthology documentary.
As someone who has both awful spring allergies and migraine-level tension headaches, I can relate. Hope you're enjoying the show - when I get the 'thumpers' I have to basically go into a makeshift sensory deprivation chamber.
He called the spotty dropouts and drug addicts. I remember that interview.

Wooo boy! I hit the wall. I'll finish up listening in bed. My best to all of you. See ya around!
Did sensory dep/sleeping for most of the day today. Woke up out of it drenched in sweat just as C2C was about to start.
