152: Best of SATB 2018
2:23:23
<p>As a sonic landscape to accompany your holiday season demands: driving places – online shopping – gift-wrapping, and so forth, SATB presents an end-of-year look at the highlights of this years’ shows. We had some terrific guests this year, ranging from notables like Randy Bachman and the Mona Lisa Twins to SATB favorites like Erin […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/152-best-of-satb-2018/">152: Best of SATB 2018</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>In the 2nd of a quartet of shows recorded (in part) at the White Album Symposium at Monmouth University (as well as the 2nd in a trio of shows covering Apple in its 50th year), I speak with my friend, Ken Mansfield: former manager of US operations of Apple, as well as author of several […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/151-roof-ken-mansfield/">151: On The Roof with Ken Mansfield</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>In the first of what will be a series of shows originating from the White Album symposium held at Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey, I am presenting my opening remarks, followed by a brief Q&A. For those who couldn’t attend, it gives you a good flavor of how these events go down.

149: No Obvious Title – A Conversation with Vinnie Zummo
1:48:05
<p>You may know his name from his years on tour and in the studio with Joe Jackson; possibly from his series of solo projects (Swinging Guitar Sounds of Young America Vol 1-3, plus The Coyote and two Christmas collections – find them here). But this multi-instrumentalist has been a lifelong Beatle fan, and as he says here, […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/149-no-obvious-title-conversation-vinnie-zummo/">149: No Obvious Title – A Conversation with Vinnie Zummo</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>If all you know about this sister act out of Austria is an array of Beatles covers on Youtube, then you don’t know the Mona Lisa Twins. They are the present-day embodiment of the ripples of waves begun when the Beatles entered popular consciousness over half a century ago; a manifestation of what Geoff Baker […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/148-nothing-today-conversation-mona-lisa-twins/">148: Nothing But Today – A Conversation with the Mona Lisa Twins</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

147: The ‘Perfect’ Beatles Album – A Hard Day’s Night vs. Sgt. Pepper
1:34:22
<p>There is no real perfection, a much-loved artist once sang. But in Beatle world, where excellence is the common consensus, the act of assessing how well they executed their art as distinguished by individual releases is – at the very least – ripe for a thoughtful discussion. Returning to the show is TV writer Jeff […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/147-perfect-beatles-album-hard-days-night-vs-sgt-pepper/">147: The ‘Perfect’ Beatles Album – A Hard Day’s Night vs. Sgt.

<p>At last: SATB takes on a long-desired topic, comparing and contrasting two of the biggest acts out of the UK during the 1960s. Quantifying art is a fool's errand, yet here we are because we can't help ourselves.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/145-something-rolling-stones-beatles/">145: Something About The Rolling Stones (and The Beatles)</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

144: Seeing The Beatles
1:28:16
<p>As an end-of summer two-fer, SATB presents a double bill: two different ways of “seeing” the Beatles. First, on the 50 years since the Mad Day Out, my guest is photographer Tom Murray; author of the newly-published book, The Beatles: Tom Murray’s Mad Day Out –  a colorful revisit to a summer’s day when all was […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/144-seeing-beatles/">144: Seeing The Beatles</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>Television writer Jeff Martin makes his third appearance on the show, this time focusing the conversation on one of his vocations – playing keyboards in a band – and how The Beatles (Paul mainly) utilized an array of instruments in the studio: piano – electric piano – organ – harmonium – Mellotron – synthesizer, and […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/142-truth-beauty-keyboards-jeff-martin/">142: Truth and Beauty…and Keyboards (with Jeff Martin)</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>To call the stunningly-talented musician/singer/songwriter a "Beatles sideman" is to sell short his tremendous gifts and the less tangible affect he had on the group when they most needed a spark plug. </p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/137-billy-preston/">137: With Billy Preston</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

135: Ranking The Beatles
1:26:58
<p>Even if we don’t write them down, we all make lists (if only mentally). Back in June 2017, rock journalist Bill Wyman boldly committed his ranking of every Beatles canon recording from worst to best. It was a move certain to stir the pot of debate, and so it did.

<p>Returning as a SATB guest is Jeff Martin, whom you will remember from 122 – The Simpsons episode. In addition to his writing on that show as well as Late Night with David Letterman beginning in the 1980s, he is also a musician and therefore speaks the language of The Beatles specifically, as well as creativity generally.

<p>Yes, he’s the guy who sang “Takin’ Care of Business” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” but if that’s all you know about this accomplished artist, then you are missing out on a lot. Randy has penned #1 hit singles for two different recording acts; toured as an All Starr; hosted a popular radio show […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/131-beatles-randy-bachman-george/">131: The Beatles and Randy Bachman, By George!</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

130: The Beatles and Charles Manson

<p>Now that there’s been an ending to the story, it seems like a good time to examine the intersection between artists who stood for love and peace and a career criminal/sociopath who will forever be tied to them, by virtue of the demented “gospel” ripped straight from their albums.

129B: “Acoustic Beatles” with Dave Mirkin 2 (This Time It’s Personal)
1:34:49
<p>Picking up where we left off, we discuss an array of topics and songs, mostly adhering to the “acoustic Beatles” theme. (For some reason, we seemed to gravitate to the White Album a lot…) But there’s also much about the impact of success; the level of support the Beatles gave each other; George and the […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/129b-acoustic-beatles-dave-mirkin-2-time-personal/">129B: “Acoustic Beatles” with Dave Mirkin 2 (This Time It’s Personal)</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>John once observed that, in his opinion, Paul was “…an egomaniac about everything else about himself, but his bass playing” – which was as influential as it was innovative. It is therefore a delicious irony to report the same was true of John: while he touted his status as an artist (not to mention “genius”) at every opportunity, […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/127-john-lennon-invisible-guitarist/">127: John Lennon, “Invisible Guitarist”</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com">Something About The Beatles</a>.</p>

<p>49 years ago, The Beatles launched their Apple label with one of rock’s most successful single releases.
