RE: "Now and Then"

Ummmm, where would they get more polished lyrics from John? They had what they had. And the quality was so poor that it required the AI techniques used even to extract that.

While I don't think it is a great song they did the best with what they have, including the still living members. Paul's voice is croaky, I don't know about Ringo's, but he never sang the harmonies in the past like he does on this. They only had some guitar parts from George that were recorded when they tried to do this in the past.

When I watched "Get Back" I was fascinated with their creative process. A song would go from a few hummed lyrics or a guitar/piano tune to a polished recording in a pretty short time.

What surprised me though was how cleaned up the songs are on the Blue and Red albums now. "Yesterday" in particular was fixed so it isn't a mono string quartet on one side and Paul on the other. They were able to spread it out as a normal stereo recording.
