: : : yellow submarine by The Beatles
: : Is this so? Or am I thick? Or both?
: : There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether the Brian Jones who played sax with the Beatles in circa '68 was ANOTHER Brian Jones, a session musician. Perhaps it's HIM singing on yellow submarine.
: Brian most definitely played sax on two Beatles numbers. I have the book "Beatles Recording Sessions" which is the holy gail of Beatle books. Its been a few years since I read it but I know one of the songs he is on is You Know My Name (Look Up The Number). On Yellow Submarine Brian sings backgound vocals and it is also Mr Jones who is clanking away on the glasses that you hear in the background.
: As far as Stones songs and his singing, there are a few on the early albums where he sings background but his vocals stand out most on these: It’s All Over Now, Walking The Dog, Yesterday’s Papers (the second backup solo vocal)and Ruby Tuesday which he sings vocal harmony with Keef. I almost forgot SFTD, where he and the rest of the band are a part of the greatest backup vocals ever recorded for any rock song (IMO anyway!)
I think Brian can be heard singing backup vocals on Honky Tonk Women---sounds much like 'It's All Over Now'..
