And please come back again next Tuesday in the new year with an ALL NEW “SMS Trivia Quiz” But, for now click the link below!…
I believe this was the last Beatles’ record to have both a mono and stereo version. The mono version (IMHO) sounds different, with Paul’s bass (on some songs) more defined. There are some tracks that probably could have been left out, but after the release of Freak Out, there seems to have been an interest in double albums. Chicago Transit Authority, another iconic double album, could (and should) have been pared down to a single release. Cheers and I hope everyone had a good Christmas!
Merry Christmas from London!
My daughter lives here now, so we’re visiting for Christmas and seeing a lot of great lives music. Happy New Year!
