Phil Collins - Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, The End (1998)

Phil CollinsGolden SlumbersCarry That WeightThe EndBeatles

the Gentleman you ask about is George Martin. He produced the Beatles which is a good thing to have on a CV !!! Before that he produced The Goons and others. I'd known George for many years and during an interview with him for a TV series he was doing, he mentioned that he was going to put the Beatles stuff on CD, and it would be the last time those tapes would be heard as they were. I couldn't resist asking if I could come
and have a listen....so I went to AIR studios, above Oxford Circus, and heard their multi-tracks for the first and last time. Yesterday, Ticket to Ride, Help.....paradise. When he put each fader up separately (and there was only 4 of them !!!)... each track had one or two instruments on them and you could hear the guys coughing etc.  Anyway to get back to the point, he was making what was to be his last album. His hearing has suffered over the years and this was to be the last one. He asked the people he liked to pick songs of the Beatles to perform.  I chose, after discussing it with him, Golden Slumbers, which has the little drum solo in it.  He came out to France where we were recording DITL, and we did it all in a day. He'd say..."this is what George sang..." and "this is what Paul did.."it was quite magical. The album is called "IN MY LIFE" and there was a documentary made... don't know if that is available, though I have a copy.  When I think of these things I've been able to do in my career, I'm very touched that I've managed to work with some of the greatest musicians, writers, producers of our time.  I never forget how lucky I am.  (2005)

Isn't it odd how nobody ever seems able to come up with a better version of a Beatles track then the original...!? Not even the individual members themselves ever managed it. It must have been something in the air...

Phil has never gotten the recognition he should have. This is A+!

Weak in the upper notes....I am great admirer of Phil's drumming ,compositions and contribution to the great group Genesis.I just think that his singing is not his main strength.

I think this version is terrific. Collins' drum solo alone is worth the redo.

Lorrie Smith
He must be gutted that he can no longer play drums. (Injuries to his wrists) but now, his son drums for him! Pumpkin seeds grow pumpkins! 😁

One way to make the Beatles uncool as fuck, just get a balding turd in to play the songs.

Taaadaaaa uncool as fuck.

Oh and they ruined the drum solo.
