Weekly Vinyl – Rare Beatles

14 Apr

Rarities
The Beatles
(1980)

Is it still possible for there to anything to uncover about the Beatles?
This, the first great group of Rock ‘n Roll.
The first Kings of Pop.
Every once in a while the internet announces that something “new” has been discovered from the Beatles past – be they songs, pictures, notebooks, whatever. Most people ignore this as they did with Elvis Presley sightings back in the day.
The music here is not earth shattering – it is The Beatles after all. In its time – perhaps revolutionary. But I’ve heard most of these tunes in a Muzak version on an elevator or in a shopping mall – so the edge has worn off.
What is interesting here are the notes on the back cover that explain why the particular track was chosen and its significance. This would no doubt be of interest to a tru Beatles fan.
