beatles 74

this week paul mccartney released a new single, and since john's not around to say it, i will: it's complete shite. but that doesn't mean the 4 beatles didn't release a lot of good individual music after their 1970 break up.

paul and john40 years ago george, paul, ringo, and john each released solo albums, and this week i combine their best tracks into the beatles album that could've happened.

between the lazy tracks each of them released some very creative work. and yet when listening to any one song, while there is some self-consciousness of the other former-members' existance, you don't get the dynamic push or critique from the others, that could have enhanced these songs.

nonetheless, it's a great way to get a feel for the band as a whole--4 years after they quit playing together. and maybe a taste of what could have continued to be.

40 years ago: robin trower and procol harum

40 years ago, the last choprocol harumrds of "whiter shade of pale" had long since faded into the memories of the creative collective consciousness of progressive music, but procol harum was just getting around to producing their best album: "exotic birds and fruit." a forgotten gem, released in 1974, along with the 2nd and best solo album of procol harum guitarist, robin trower, "bridge of sighs."

this week i feature the best tracks from both of those remarkable, creative, and very different albums.

here's what you'll be hearing: the songs.
