Considered by many the apex of the Beatles’ incredible musical career, Revolver was recorded at a pivotal time. Coming off their Shea Stadium triumph and a massive tour, and prior to their cultural landmark Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the exhausted Beatles found some extra time when a planned third movie fell through, and they took advantage by spending more time in the studio than ever before.
Revolver was the first Beatles album with no filler, the first to feature extensive studio trickery, and the first to reflect social concerns. Revolver showcased George Harrison’s fascination with politics and Indian sitar music (“Taxman,” “Love You To”), John Lennon’s relentless experimentation with LSD and Tibetan Buddhism (“Tomorrow Never Knows,” “Doctor Robert,” “I’m Only Sleeping”), and Paul McCartney’s topical lyrics and orchestrated backings (“Eleanor Rigby,” “Got to Get You Into My Life,” “Here, There and Everywhere”), while Ringo Starr became the most popular Beatle in America with the international smash hit “Yellow Submarine.”
Thomas Mulready dissects Revolver and peels back the curtain to show how the album was recorded, the stories behind each song, and what was happening in the Beatles’ lives at time. Using rare video, photos and needle drops, this interactive presentation includes Q&A, trivia and many surprising insights. This presentation complements Mulready’s presentation on The Beatles’ classic White Album, presented on Sat 9/22/18 at BOP STOP.
