A Year With The Beatles

Episode 2 - With The Beatles

April 3, 2016

In the second month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones got together with Andrew Flint to talk about With The Beatles and how it managed to avoid being anything but the difficult second album. There's also a discussion of the Beatles' growth in the studio, how they transformed the covers they performed and even a thought or two of how they might have presaged punk music. 

For extra-credit homework, the guys watched the full episode of the Ed Sullivan Show featuring the Beatles' American debut and pondered what it must be like to be the self-effacing magic act following the fab four and much more.
