****Anyone else notice that around 1967 John's voice became much softer and higher pitched, while McCartney's, beginning around 1968, became deeper and more forceful. I refer to Back in the USSR, when he was almost channeling Elvis, but certainly on Let It Be you can notice a deeper richer tone.

***Perhaps all those years of singing screamers like "Twist and Shout" and "Money" took their toll on Lennon's voice?

**Ah, good point.

* Paul's voice did get deeper during the late Beatles period. John's voice became somewhat softer and highter picted around 67 but he still could belt out a screaming vocal when he wanted to.

And as you can hear on the JL Anthology box set, especially #3, he could still sound the same as circa 1963-1965. I think it was morwe that the LSD had changed his personality so much that it effected everything, including his singing. Just my take on it. He was lucky he didn't have a complete melt down ala Brian Wilson.
