|Mojo- And from 40 years after|
I suppose the use of the line 'it was 20 years ago today' in the title track meant there'd be plenty of revisits- I recall even in my senior school days there was a reappraisal as early as the mid70's - then at 20 years I'm sure there was something too.
With the current reviews I've particularly enjoyed the two part Radio 2 documentary narrated by Beatles Uber-Fan Martin Freeman - it uses some great outtakes as well as the 'new' improved production masterminded by the original producer's son Giles Martin - the extra detail really does show the brilliance of what was done all those years ago.
Today's BBC 2 documentary fronted by Howard Goodall did feel a little Open University at times but it was nice to have more focus on Within You Without You - which perhaps fired the starting pistol for what's now the idea of popular 'World Music'.
Like so many LPs my own favourite changes from day to day (like Her Majesty) - currently it's Good Morning Good Morning.
See some old people enjoying listening to the album here and young people seeing the group.
