Rubber Soul and Revolver set new standards for pop and rock records. These albums presented a maturing and evolving Beatles to the world. As producer George Martin noted, “For the first time, we began to think of albums as art on their own, as complete entities.” This is not to take anything away from the quality of the songs themselves. The 16 tracks recorded during the Rubber Soul sessions are among the group’s finest, with half being included on The Beatles 1962 - 1966 hits collection. With Revolver, the Beatles were looking for more color in their recordings, trying new instruments and techniques. But they were not using studio wizardry to cover weaknesses; they were looking for new sounds to enhance their already brilliant songs.
In addition to the usual chapters on the British, American and Canadian perspectives, the book contains an extensive treatment on the Butcher and Trunk Covers, featuring all of the significant images from the photo sessions and the true story behind the controversial cover. There are also chapters on the recording sessions and album covers, as well as on the news, music and films of the era to place these albums in their proper context. And, of course, fan recollections.
