While it has often been mooted that this could have been edited to make a great single album instead of a double, we did at least get the efforts of four different, yet troubled, individuals. The Beatles demonstrated that they could be way above our heads with items such as ‘Revolution No. 9’, and downright kitsch with ‘Martha My Dear’ and ‘Good Night’. Lennon excelled with ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun’ and Paul McCartney tore his throat with ‘Birthday’. Above all, and for the first time on record, they showed that they could really play, as displayed by ‘Helter Skelter’ and ‘Back In The USSR’, even though they enlisted Eric Clapton for support on ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’.
