In which we welcome back to the show historian Erin Torkelson
Weber. In this episode, we pick up where we left off; this time
discussing older canon works like Ian MacDonald’s Revolution in
the Head and Peter Doggett’s You Never Give Me Your
Money; (also Peter McCabe’s outdated Apple To The
Core and the problematic memoir of Geoff Emerick) as well as
new essential works like Riding So High by Joe Gooden. We
also talk about how the Beatles’ historic narrative was shaped,
countered and re-evaluated as Mark Lewisohn’s works represented a
true revolution in Beatles scholarship.
Hosted by award-winning author Robert Rodriguez, Something About The Beatles is an intelligent but entertaining examination of The Beatles' music and career. Smart, funny and surprising - just like the Fab Four.
