Sorry for not posting in over a week! I’ve been holidaying in Melbourne (involving lots of shopping, more additions to my Beatles t-shirt/vinyl collection and a Jacqui Lambie sighting!) since Saturday, and got back a couple of nights ago, but I’ve found some time to post today. And by the way, welcome to 2015 on ‘All You Need Is The Beatles’! I’ve got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be really awesome for this blog, with heaps of Beatle-y posts as usual, plus some stuff on a few of their contemporaries & some stuff on the 21st-century indie music scene. Not to mention the month-long first birthday party for this blog to be held in June… 🙂 But alas, here is a post I started a few weeks ago and decided to finish today!
Whilst there are a heap of instantly recognisable photos taken of The Beatles pre-Sgt. Pepper/White Album (most of which are taken by an insanely talented man who was the band’s official photographer from 1964-1966 & lived in Melbourne where he hung out with the likes of Germaine Greer, Mirka Mora, John and Sunday Reed and Barry Humphries/Dame Edna/Les Patterson for a few years before that, Bob Whitaker), arguably the most iconic behind the Abbey Road photoshoot (and perhaps the Sgt. Pepper one, too) is one of the band on July 28th, 1968. John, Paul, George and Ringo were in the midst of the White Album Sessions. They weren’t getting on so well. But they clearly got on well on this particular day… The day of the Mad Day Out photoshoot! Below are some of my favourite images from that day (and some not-so-serious captions… 😉 ) — enjoy!
And there we have it! Got any more Mad Day Out pictures/funny captions you want to add? Feel free to put them in the comments below… I’ll get back to doing more musically-orientated posts next time, but today I felt like showcasing one of the most famous photo sessions arguably of all time. And by the way, this is tangerinetrees99’s 50th post! Woo hoo! Until next post, good day sunshine! 🙂
