Jim James of My Morning Jacket has recorded some pared-down, reverbed-up covers of George Harrison songs under the name Yim Yames. I've included one here: "Long, Long, Long" from the White Album, and I appreciate the quiet, deferential treatment that Jim James gives his songs. Good stuff, "Yim."Here's a good story in the engineer's notes from the original recording of "Long, Long, Long" on Monday, October 6, 1968:
There's a sound near the end of the song [best heard on the right channel] which is a bottle of Blue Nun wine rattling away on the top of a Leslie speaker cabinet. It just happened. Paul hit a certain organ note and the bottle started vibrating. We thought it was so good that we set the mikes up and did it again. The Beatles always took advantage of accidents.
