were the Beatles really that amazing?
even more then anyone could describe, but I'll give it a go.
listening to the Beatles music today is like listening to soft rock...back then, it was revolutionary, and cutting edge
technologically, they were even more meticulous then classical recording...put abbey road or let it be on with headphones, and you would not believe the expertise in production
go further then that, try to find an original vinyl album, and do the same before anything was remastered for digital reproduction...compare the Beatles to anything else on plastic...as if the Beatles producers knew things no one else discovered until a generation later
even today, put "blue jay way" or "I am the walrus" on wearing headphones...I believe if these were released today, hey would turn heads for ingenuity
whenever An album came out, the direction of music as a whole clanged direction according to the Beatles vision
and socially, the Beatles made the young pay attending to what was happening around the world...the public as a whole was so uninformed, never questioning or challenging, any of the status quo.
I can't say the Beatles had sole responsibility for making America aware, but they had not a small hand in it
they were a culture
if not for the Beatles, "the whole" flower power" movement, could possible never have happened...they challenged us to think and wonder.
more amazing then can be told
I also agree, abbey road BTW
hey, give that "blue jaw way" and "I am the walrus" a listen with headphones
