One of the most influential albums of all time Turns 50 today and I feel it needs to be celebrated.
The revolver album, 'The Beatles' 7th studio album was their most innovative and experimental recording to date and was the pre-cursor to their most
celebrated album Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band.
For me this album was better than 'Sgt.Pepper's', although that was still a great album. It has some of the most brilliant John Lennon songs such as,
' And your bird can sing, 'Tomorrow never knows', 'I'm only sleeping' and 'She said, she said'.
It also gave us a glimpse of the political situation in the U.K with George Harrison's 'Tax man'', which is probably my favourite Harrison song.
McCartney of course contributed with my all time favourite Beatles song 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Good day sunshine'.
The recording methods with loops and reverse recordings was something that had never been tried before and this added to the overall effect the album
had on fans and critics alike.
If anyone has listened to the 'B' side of paperback writer, then I believe it should have been included on the album. The song is called 'Rain' and it
has Lennon at his very best vocally, with a really good bass driven groove.
I have to say, Revolver is my joint favourite album, along with Abbey Road and I raise a glass to it on it's 50th Birthday.
