An excellent “As I See It” by Eric Beardsworth, well remininsced and I fully agree with his reflections on the Beatles. Many consider the Sgt Pepper LP as their “masterpiece”, but I join Eric in declaring “Revolver” as their as their “zenith” before George Martin’s and Phil Spector’s productions “over polished” their talents.
It’s a shame they couldn’t “get back” to regular live shows, but when the “split” eventually came, George Harrison’s work showed he had been a “gem” waiting to be discovered.
Talking of “gems”, how many locals remember the moody, magnificent Van Morrison playing in a marquee set up on the castle tennis courts about 1966, or the talent that was Mike Oldfield, appearing with Kevin Ayers on the bandstand in the early 1970s, great days.
