A shamelessly perfect record, its continuing popularity and influence is fully justified. Music critics have always preferred Revolver to its famous successor Sgt Pepper, while fans were at first a little wary of the brilliantly bizarre ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, the eastern promise of ‘Love You To’ or the goodtime brass of ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’. Years of repeated listening unfolds quiet gems such as George Harrison’s exceptional ‘I Want To Tell You’ and John Lennon’s wondrously hazy ‘I’m Only Sleeping’, or as he sings ‘I’m only seeping’. Paul McCartney was also on a creative roll with the unabashed and brave romanticism of ‘Here There And Everywhere’ and the classical sadness of ‘Eleanor Rigby’. Subtly original and beautifully recorded, an all-time classic.

Tracks: Taxman; Eleanor Rigby; I’m Only Sleeping; Love You To; Here, There And Everywhere; Yellow Submarine; She Said She Said; Good Day Sunshine; And Your Bird Can Sing; For No One; Dr. Robert; I Want To Tell You; Got To Get You Into My Life; Tomorrow Never Knows....
