Revolver

On this date in 1966, the Beatles released Revolver.

Revolver was right on par with, if not better than, Sgt. Pepper.

Beatles hagiography drives me nuts.  The Beatles were not gods, and were by no means perfect musically.  But their music stands the test of time.  Like all other musical acts, their music needs to be put in the perspective of the era in which it was produced.

And not for nothing, that period from 1966 through early 1968 is probably the best quality period in pop music history.
