Revolver
August 28, 1966 Capitol Records

Side A (LP)
1. Taxman (Harrison)
2. Eleanor Rigby (Lennon/McCartney)
3. I'm Only Sleeping (Lennon/McCartney)
4. Love You To (Harrison)
5. Here, There, And Everywhere (Lennon/McCartney)
6. Yellow Submarine (Lennon/McCartney)
7. She Said, She Said (Lennon/McCartney)

Side B (LP)
8. Good Day Sunshine (Lennon/McCartney)
9. And Your Bird Can Sing (Lennon/McCartney)
10. For No One (Lennon/McCartney)
11. Doctor Robert (Lennon/McCartney)
12. I Want To Tell You (Harrison)
13. Got To Get You Into My Life (Lennon/McCartney)
14. Tomorrow Never Knows (Lennon/McCartney)

As Rubber Soul was a major turning point in the Beatles writing and recording styles, Revolver (working titles "Abracadabra", "Magical Circles", and "Beatles On Safari") took that attitude of exploration even further. The Beatles were even deeper into the underground art and drug scenes which were influencing their music in entirely new ways. One musical breakthrough is "Tomorrow Never Knows", with unending tape loops and sound effects. None of the songs on Revolver were played on tour, even though the album was released during what turned out to be their last tour ever. Winner of the 1966 Grammy for Best Album Cover/Package (designed by Klaus Voorman who later created the Anthology covers) and Album of the Year. Also named the greatest rock and roll album of all time by VH1 in 2001 in their "100 Greatest Rock And Roll Albums Of All Time" series.

I don't see how revolver could be the greatest album of all time, much less the beatles' best album of all time. I like rubber soul better.

Anyone of you think that maybe a Revolver song could be in Rubber Soul or in Sgt Pepper ??? and im not talking about dates, recording session etc... Im talking about something more "personal"...
I think that "And your bird can sing" could fit very well in Rubber Soul...Maybe "For no one" in Sgt P.

Revolver and Rubber Soul - top of the list for me.

George said he thought of them as part 1 and part 2, both quite similar in lots of ways, and both from the peak of the band operating as a band.

If I had to explain to somebody what popular music achieved in the second part of the c20, I'd start with these two records and Pet Sounds.
