UPDATE: New Video - re-enter?
Lots of retread footage, but very well edited from Iamaphoney alias KUCINlCH2008
If you went into a record shop in 1973, you might have seen something on the wall that looked like this...
The covers of George Harrison's "Living In The Material World" and Paul McCartney's "Red Rose Speedway" are reminiscent of something Beatles fans had seen before.
The back of the two albums were similar in design, right down to fan club address information at the bottom of each. George's blurb about the Jim Keltner fan club was simply a parody of Paul's information about the Wings Fun Club, but it did serve to link the albums together making the hand over Paul's head message of the front covers seem more intentional.
That caused me to wonder if there are any more George/Paul things that seem to go together. This is what I came up with off the top of my head.
The Harrison Eye (Best of Dark Horse) and the McCartney Eye (The McCartney Years)
George thumbs up (Sgt. Pepper) and Paul thumbs up (Back In The U.S.)
It's the dummy, dummy (Brainwashed and Twin Freaks)
George's "Living In The Material World" insert.
Paul's "This One" Single.
The point is that even though they weren't playing on each other's songs, The Beatles still existed after 1970. There were contractual obligations and business meetings, but maybe there was more than that. Maybe they really were an elite fraternity inexorably connected by a shared secret.
