The Beatles Song Of The Day: “I’ve Just seen A Face”

This is a fast paced, upbeat song near the end of “Help!” which was not the most inspired Beatles album. One of the highlights on the album.It has a country-bluegrass music feel to it. A unique sounding Beatles song. John Lennon: acoustic guitar/ Paul McCartney: vocal and acoustic guitar/ George Harrison: acoustic lead guitar/ Ringo Starr: brushed snare and maracas. The song was recorded on June 14th, 1965 at Abbey Road. Producer: George Martin.
