The Beatles: Paul Recalls Inspirations Of LP

Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 30 November 1968

PAUL McCARTNEY has been talking about The Beatles' new double-album and he is understandably and humanly chuffed at the cover versions of his songs. He appreciates that 'Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da' is currently the fave rave, but I've a feeling he has reservations about the number of versions and whether this could affect the hit chances of one or the other. (And why shouldn't he worry about things like that; is there shame in success?)
