A Beatles tune from their classic "White Album". This was a song rediscovered by me whilst going through some of my old cassettes. It's interesting to me that when I first listened to this album a long while ago I was taken with a lot of the tracs on this double album.
But not "Mother Nature's Son".
I was much more taken with the upbeat "Back in the USSR", "Revolution", "Rocky Raccoon", "Buffalo Bill", "Honey Pie", et al, and I quite sped past this one on my old two-speaker stereo console.
Now I think this is one the most moving songs Paul McCartney ever performed.
It was recorded in early August of 1968, about two years after the group's last official concert, on August 29th in San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Accordingto Wikipedia, it was inspired by a lecture McCartney heard from the Beatles "Ashram" period with the Madarishi Yogi. The India pictures here are therefore quite appropriate.
Does anyone else have a favorite "White Album" tune?
