Recording, I sense, is not White as the Beatles intended! (10)
I believe the answer is:
'intended' is the definition.
Although both the answer and definition are adjectives, I don't understand how they can define each other.
'recording i sense is not white as the beatles' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'i' could be 'a' and 'a' is found in the answer.
'sense' could be 'nous' (nous is a kind of sense) and 'nous' is found in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
Can you help me to learn more?
