Revolver : A work of true genius

Advantages: Beatles' songwriting (including George) at its best : Album contains a bit of everything
Disadvantages: None of any significance

1966 as far as I'm concerned, was THE year of the 1960s. We had a long, dry and very hot summer...I'd settled into secondary school nicely, and the nation seemed to be riding high on a cloud of euphoria. It's quite likely true that I was viewing certain ...

Look at all the lonely people

Advantages: Brave construction; Harrison; move from folk to electric
Disadvantages: A few 'fillers' but they don't detract from the greatness
