Sean sounds a bit like John Lennon when he talks, doesn't he?
Sean isn't that Scouse is he?
Abbey Road's my favourite.
the beginning of the modern era post tin pan alley sound of POP!
well that's my take, please don't kill me.
i'm predictable so i say Revolver.
I actually haven't heard many Beatles albums, apart from that and Sgt. Pepper.
then Magical Mystery Tour
then white album
then the poppier early stuff.
is my favourite too. i much prefer the pop band beatles to the later stuff.
but really the 'sexual' energy and and hopeful youthfulness of the pop singles has never really been beaten - apart from That Fucking Tank, obviously
PROLEFACT: Joe Meek recorded the beatles after they'd come all the way from Liverpool and then got the tube to Holloway Road. Then he said it was rubbish and told them to go back to Liverpool - the demos are 'out there' somewhere. <ENDS>
i thought it was a joke...
heavily populated by slow moving traffic.
that still isn't as slow as me.
that a lot of people who aren't 'really into music' 'dig' the beatles. I think also as my parents are prolescum and only understood the 'pop' stuff therefore never getting Sgt Pepper etc I can only really 'enjoy' the pop stuff. People with parents who went to college/university would have 'grown up' with the more esoteteric stuff - this is probably also why I can't stand Dylan.
Epstein made them look like right gimps didn't he?
Interesting to think that what our parents had as music in the house may in some way shape what we like or how we view music (to some extent) in our own lives. And also to what radio station they may have listened to etc. THere are of course plus and negative aspects to this as well.
I'll do some work now.
although i suppose i prefer it that they didn't look like that for the rest of their lives, y'know. Do y'know?
i can stand Dylan until the sixties were over.
but can you tell the editors of monthy music magazines that? no, he's a GOD after all or something.
Imagine the beatles if they still had to wear those clothes still like it was some weird twilight zone episode.
I prefer the pre moptop look - there's some ace original pics in the 'proper' Beatles pubs in liverpool - it just absorbs you and takes you somewhere a thousand DVDs could never do.
sorry I was day dreaming then
You preferred the seedier leather-jacketed Don't Fear The Reaperbahn look?
Someone should tell magazines that the Sixties were four decades ago.
