Wow. Haven't thought of this song in a long time. Psychedelic George

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.

LOL! Are we being taught that now?
Had it as part of my curriculum. Everything is backwards from what you think it should be. LOL

It's All Too Much.  A very obscure Beatles track...if there is such a thing...found only on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack.

Knapp always finds a little creative gem to add.

That's a nice factoid.  8)  I can imagine why he was turned of by the scene in San Francisco.   :o  ;D

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.

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.   :-\

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.

From C2C site:

Second Half: Sociologist Dr. Simeon Hein details his investigation into how our society treats witnesses to unexplained events, UFOs, and mysterious beings. Itís a topic he once dismissed as being weird, fringe, and kind of crazy - something he'd avoid, but eventually the weight of the evidence overcame any doubts he had about the authenticity of these subjects. He looks deeply at why our society is so reluctant to engage and address the critical issues raised by such phenomena.

I don't think he's touched on this verbatim.  :(

Thanks. I wanted to cut my own head off earlier. I still have that aura but after Knapp I'll be hitting the tub. While I'm in the water I feel pretty normal but when I get out it starts to come back, Many times I actually fall asleep in the tub and then wake up when I accidentally suck up some water. I'm thinking I'm possibly a merman. No Ethel jokes, please!  :D

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.  Lennon also swore off LSD after this.  They found replacement drugs unfortunately such as heroin.  That's a step up, now isn't it?

He called the spotty dropouts and drug addicts. I remember that interview.

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.

Yes, you are right MD.  I have to break out my dvd of that documentary and give it another go.  It has been a while.

That's rough, and I know to some extent how rough exactly.  Hang in there man.
