I was having a discussion with my musical partner Rachael Levin the other day about which Beatles album was the best. Rachael, despite her young age, grew up listening to the Beatles (we must blame the parents) and probably knows more about them than I do. Heck, I’m sure she does. She said Abbey Road - I said Sgt. Pepper. I said something along the lines that it was all determined by where and who and what you were when you first heard it - she rolled her eyes and we moved on to something more important, like lunch.
Well Rachael, I think I might have changed my mind. This morning around mango-mango I listened - really listened to the last Beatle album Let it Be as it should have been produced, with out the Phil Spector “Wall-0-Sound” over done LA crap. I couldn’t believe it! I’m not going to get into the specifics, but I have changed my mind. Move over Abbey Rd, - Sgt. Pepper...I’m starting to feel that Let It Be (naked) is the superlative Beatles album - the best, the best Jerry.
Take a listen and tell me what you think.
I waiting to hear what Rachael thinks,
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
