Happy birthday to a musical masterpiece from the greatest rock’n’roll band of all time.
It’s not their best album, that would be Revolver, or the best album of that year (that’s this one) but it was the one that revolutionized and raised standards for the album format for rock music, which prior to this release relied on great singles surrounded by filler tracks and cover songs. Even if it was good filler. This album was the first to follow a theme and concept.
From the title track to arguably their greatest song “A day in the life”, it’s still the most pleasant and exciting 40 minutes ever committed to tape and then to record.
Find your copy and play it like it just came out yesterday.
