Whenever I’m in the Hamptons I always visit Mary’s Marvelous Bakery. I just paid for my iced coffee and cookies, when, out of the corner of my eye, I thought I saw Paul on his cell phone. I readied my iPhone and SNAP!

Dr. Lou Abbott
Acapella harmonies in "Paperback Writer" are a bold step beyond “Nowhere Man.” The guitar riff concept is similar as in “Day Tripper” and “Ticket to Ride.” Ringo’s drumming enters, stops, and re-enters cleanly. This miniature masterpiece is 2:29 minutes.
