Right about now, July 2017. Smack dab in the middle of Sgt. Pepper’s 50th anniversary, you probably believe you know and have heard everything about this iconic recording. Well! Hang onto your mustache Billy Shears….Didja know this… There is a dog whistle that closes out the L.P. At the end of side two…Yep, after “A Day In The Life” after the final crashing “E” chord played on three piano’s and before the dead groove that features a random, short audio clip of Beatle chatter John Lennon actually blows a dog whistle. A dog whistle by definition is a device that emits a tone at a super high frequency of 15 kilo cycles per second, a tone which can only be heard by folks with near super hearing and, yes….Dogs!
Although, both John and Paul have claimed it to be true, no ones quite sure, Afterall you can’t hear it….However that hasn’t deterred the debate between the folks who claim they can actually hear it and those of us who can’t….
Of course we’ve included the mysterious piece for YOU to review and share what you hear or don’t. AND it also provides a great opportunity for you and Fido to hang out and listen to Sgt. Pepper..
I guess it is now a fact…I am not a dog. I am unable to hear the dog whistle however it is a great old song. And thanks for providing information once again I was not aware of and the link to hear the song once again!
