Hey Bulldog!

One of the few last occasions when Lennon and McCartney seemed to be enjoying themselves. Always liked this song.

Geoff Emerick, the Beatles’ engineer, would subsequently claim this was the last song the band recorded that featured a team dynamic with enthusiasm from every member. The song popped up on the Yellow Submarine album.

When the group reconvened in the studio in May 1968 for the The Beatles sessions, their group cohesion had already been undermined by the business, artistic, and personal differences that would culminate in their eventual breakup.

There’s a well known band that plays in Mallorca, the Pa Amb Oli band that do a version of this song.  I was reminded of it the other day. You can listen to a rough live version of Pa Amb Oli playing it here.
