Yes indeed! It’s Trivia Tuesday for May 5th! Always brought to us by the Fab / Gear folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your prime choice for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But, before we get to this weeks Trivia Quiz, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who “nailed” last weeks question, which was: A series’s of questions about two young actors who turned recording artists in the 60’s! Remember Johnny Crawford and Paul Peterson? Only two readers weighed in on our question and both “Killed it” practically at the exact same time! But, the first one in was our old friend Edmund Simmons! Great job
Ed, you obviously watched a lot of T.V. Back in the 60’s Same goes for our new buddy Randy Greenham, less than two minutes behind Ed!

But now, it’s time for this weeks new Trivia Quiz:  And this weeks question is all about “The Fabulous Beatles” So, fellow “Maniac’s” here you go: First! Which Beatles album is the only Beatles album where ALL THE SONGS WERE WRITTEN BY Lennon and McCartney ? Next, on the cover of Abbey Road, who is the only Beatle pictured without a beard ? AND What is the title of the first song by an “ex Beatle” to reach number one ?

In Summary here’s what we need:

1) Which album is the only Beatles album where all the song’s were written by Lennon and McCartney?

2) On the cover of “Abbey Road” who is the only Beatle without a beard?

  1. First album where all songs were written my Lennon & McCartney was The Beatles | 1962-1966 (The Red Album), McCartney had no beard on the cover of Abbey Road, John Lennon’s “Imagine” was the first solo Beatle song to reach #1.

    • Hey Ken,
      Great to see you back! And you are correct about McCartney! But the first number one from an ex Beatle was “My Sweet Lord”
      Also, the first Beatle album where all the songs ere written by Lennon and McCartnet was “A Hard Day’s Night” from 1964! You were correct that “The Red Album” only contained songs by L and M. The Red Album didn’t come out till 1973 and it was a repackage created by the label!
      But, we always like to see you show up on Tuesday or any day!

  2. Paul had no Beard, or shoes.leading to the “Paul IS Dead” Rumor..”what the hell, no shoes, no beard, he must be dead!!”. My Sweet Lord, I think was the first # one by an ex Beatle. Of course that little law suit about He’s so Fine. I think he got screwed on that one. Hard Days Night, all by John and Paul…I believe. That first chord on “Hard Days Night” changed my concept of chords.

    • Hey Curtis,
      Great to see you back and of course you nailed the question! But I disagree with you about the “He’s So Fine “ lawsuit! I called foul the first time I heard “My Sweet Lord” I gotta believe George was surrounded by “Yes Men” covinceing him that they sounded nothing alike! I thought it was a direct rip!
      And about that opening chord from “A Hard Day’s Night: I spent countless hours sitting at my drum kit while the guitar players in the group experimented and NO ONE EVER GOT IT RIGHT!
      Thanx Curtis,

    • Hey Owen!
      Whoa! First in “before the ink was dry on the page” with ALL the right answers! Way to go, always great to see you drop by!
