In the twelfth and final month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined one last time by Shannon Dohar to discuss the Beatles final album (at least according to release date) Let It Be. The three get into a … spirited discussion of the merits (or lack thereof) of Phil Spector’s after-the-fact production of the album and talk about their favourite songs (with Graeme, again, taking on all comers about “The Long and Winding Road”!) as well as the less recommended but still notable tracks. And they talk about whether, under the strictest of definitions, this can be considered the Beatles’ swansong.
For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Shannon look back on this past year with the Beatles and reflect on the Beatles’ journey and its pivotal moments and what this year meant to all of them.
This is the final episode of A Year With The Beatles. We’d like to thank all the people who helped us in our discussions of the Beatles over the past year and to thank all of you good people for listening to us. We would like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves and we hope we’ve passed the audition.
