Re: Kitsch, “high art”, “low art”

StLukesguild, while we’re into the subject of Beatles, here’s one of the greatest songs ever written (George Harrison’s). Amazing troupe of musicians all on one stage. Prince’s (RIP) solo is certainly up there among the top 10 of all time.
An anecdote: when the Beatles first recorded the song George asked Eric Clapton to come to the studio to play the solo. Eric, who was a close friend but certainly not yet up to Beatles level of fame, first refused the offer and later reluctantly agreed. Hence the solo in the final track is played by Clapton, even though George could do it himself.
