First of a six-part series on the Beatles
NICK – “Do You Wanna” (from Listen You People)
This is the first of a six-part series on The Beatles. I’ve broken up their career by what I deem to be their distinct eras, using their British albums as a guide. Though I will incorporate historical & non-musical ideas, most of my talks will center on the music itself, from my usual vantage point of both a creator & a fan. In Part 1, I explain the whole series, and go right into the Beatles’ formation, pre-recording years, and first two albums.
What early Beatles songs are your faves? How do you rank this era in their career? Discuss dammit!
