Wonderfully researched and constructed
These shows are my favorite Beatles podcasts. They truly amaze with the analysis of mixes, instrumentation, production. Just outstanding work.These are *versions* of material available in the Beatles world and Internet, but Anthony has given us section by section isolation to highlight the great performances that are buried in the original mixes.I’d love to see more shows! Why not do more Beatles friends and enemies, and those that have worked with the Beatles as shows: Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, David Gilmour, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones...) The David Bowie and Tom Petty tributes were incredible. Keeping it fun and diverse, Anthony, thank you!Also, perhaps new shows making yet another breakdown, to give us unique mixes using that left off the earlier remixes? I’d love to hear more true remixes, they blow the mind (and are done so lovingly it is amazing.)For musicians, this is scholarly. It’s great be able to use this show to learn how to play the tunes. Educational and entertaining.Maybe some more mixes of particular instruments? Maybe just focus on one instrument in the songs? For purposes of education, in teaching how to perform these classic tunes, now part of the common culture and historically embedded in the popular culture?Also, the Robustelli book looks very interesting. Can’t wait for the later years of sessions. A great addition to the essential books, especially Lewisohn.Five stars. Outstanding! Thank you, Anthony Robustelli, for the hard work and wonderful acquisitions of material and peeling away of layers so lovingly, deconstructed and reconstructed so amazingly. Sincerely, this is incredible! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
