| ||Worst Beatles song ever! I'd rather listen to Revolution 9 on a 24 hour loop than hear this rubbish once!!!! Dreadful.|

| ||After this single , the next 7" released was the 6 x track " Lady Madonna " EP on Avenue Records , cat . no . AVE 51 . The six tracks were :- La - La - La , ( He Gives Me Love ) / Congratulations / Lady Madonna / Valleri / Jennifer Eccles & Cry Like A Baby , released in a picture cover .|
Further research has revealed that all of the tracks on the ABOVE EP are all , in fact , cover versions by The Clive Allan Orchestra And Singers .

| ||Say "thanks wordnwot", Mr McCartney and those other guys in 'the band' for this, my first payment towards your wealth and richly deserved success and your part in starting me down the endless labyrinth that has brought me to where I am today, a freakin' great big pile of vinyl.|

| ||Gilbert003, when you say it has a inner circle round the spindle, are you talking about the type found on the 1976 re-issues. If you are then, between 1969 and 1972 EMI started using new presses at Hayes, which when pressing records left two inner circles on the record which was noticable through the label (Sometimes referred to as 'Polo mint' marks, Life saver mints if your american). It could be that your disc is an early example (Before July 1969), or in the case of 'Hello Goodbye', just labels that were used up after the 'Sold in UK' text was removed in 1969. If it has a sharp edge rather than a flat edge the it is post 1970.|

| ||The Beatles were great nickers. By which I mean they knew the value of 4000 holes in the road, and what one might do with them.That line, of course, was taken from a story in the Daily Mail, and you find this magpie element everywhere throughout their latter oeuvre. A good case in point being this single - Lady Madonna a virtual re-write of Humphrey Littleton's Bad Penny Blues, whilst the rather lovely The Inner Light was taken, lyrically, wholesale from the Taoist holy book the Tao Te Ching. A fan, and scholar of such things, by the name of Juan Mascaro had sent George a copy and George clearly thought "I'll have that". One of the many great things about the Beatles is that, for the commited fan, a little research into their influences will lead you off in a thousand rewarding directions. This single is an excellent example.|
