1966. The Beatles' last concert; the release of Revolver, their first album of songs not intended for live performance. They experimented with avant-garde ideas, and angered many when they spoke their minds on issues of politics, war, and religion. Turner looks at the historical events that made an impact on the group, and shows how the music they made in turn profoundly affected culture, and served to transform popular music for decades to come.

A fascinating look at a period when the Beatles didn't record much music, but were instead out having experiences that would eventually change all recorded music to follow.

Just when you think there's nothing more to write about The Beatles, you discover there's always something to write about if the writing's good enough. What distinguishes "The Beatles '66" from so many other Fab books is the laser focus author Steve Turner brings to the discussion. In this case, one pivotal year in the lives of these great artists. Turner does a great job of widening the scope to include the other cultural touchstones of that year and how they impacted the creative work of the band. Imminently readable.
