The Beatles: Long Tall Sally

Live film of the Beatles playing in Australia doing a classic R&B song by Little Richard. A couple of interesting notes, first watch Ringo, Dude is really slamming on the drums. It is really hard to tell from recordings, or from film clips the importance of Ringo, but he really pounded on those skins. Trust me it makes a difference when the drummer is pounding out a backbeat like that, plus he had no amplification for those drums so just to hear him amid all the screaming is amazing.

Second there is a scary part near the end of the song, where some guy comes running on the stage. He shakes Lennon's hand, but you could see John was startled at the guy running towards him. considering what happeneed to John it is very eerie.
