Short, sharp and frank reviews from a confessed vinyl junkie. I’ll be posting my most loved records and most recent purchases right here for your perusal every week.
Reissue of the seventh studio album from the ever endearing Fab Four. Today marks 55 years since Revolver was released, which was also the day The Beatles and everything around them went technicolour, which is ironic given the album cover.
It’s well documented that the famed Liverpudlians had started delving into weed and LSD by this point, which is quite clear to hear on tracks such as ‘She Said, She Said’, and nursery rhyme ‘Yellow Submarine’
George gets his sitar out again for ‘Love You To’ (this time with a full-blown Eastern flavour) and Macca is on top form on the orchestral ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and Pop/Soul belter ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’.
The crowning jewels has to be two of Lennon’s efforts though, ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’ and the majestic ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’. The sound of the best band in the world hitting their peak and without this, well you know the rest...
