Revisiting the Beatles Albums: Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

If you read my post about Revolver, you already know that I believe that, despite what many a Rock critic believes, Revolver is the best Beatles album of all time.  In fact, if you stay tuned as I write about the rest of the Beatles catalogue, you’ll find out that I think Sgt Pepper’s Lonely […]

Revisiting The Beatles Albums: Revolver

Depending on what day you ask me, Revolver is either my favorite album by The Beatles, one of my 20 favorite albums of all time, or, quite simply, the greatest record I have ever listened to.  It is the album that has a little bit of everything. The song that makes a social statement – […]

Revisiting The Beatles Albums: Please Please Me

First off, I admit that I’m not an “early Beatles” guy.  I much more preferred the psychedelic influenced explorations that started around Rubber Soul and continued all the way to end.  I doubt that I’ve ever listened to the Please Please Me album straight through more than a couple times and those times it was […]
