Episode 213: Making a Beatles 1973 ”Reunion” album!

What would've happened if the Beatles reunited to make an album in 1973 based on the four albums recorded that year? We draw from Mind Games, Band on the Run, Living in the Material World, and Ringo to compile a 12-track album that we think would be even better if all four Beatles played and contributed to the songs. Chris and Dave both had different approaches to their album construction, but they both work well as listens. If only that had happened... Dave's album: Band on the Run, Jet, Photograph, Out The Blue, Don't Let Me Wait Too Long, I'm The Greatest, Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth), Mind Games, Bluebird, Bring on the Lucie (Freeda People), Who Can See It, and 1985. Chris's album: I'm the Greatest, Band on the Run, Sue You Sue Me Blues, Mind Games, Photograph, Let Me Roll It, One Day at a Time, Give Me Love, Bluebird, Be Here Now, I Know I Know, 1985 Enjoy!

Episode 199: Songs under the Microscope, Vol. 25- ”Any Road” by George Harrison...plus an Epic Rant!

In this episode, we go back into the lab and dissect George Harrison's song, "Any Road" from his posthumous 2002 album Brainwashed. How does the song stack up in George's catalog, what's interesting about the music and lyrics, and can Chris find any covers of note? Following our discussion of "Any Road," Chris launches into an epic rant about the latest McCartney release (the McCartney I,II, III box set) and why the McCartney camp doesn't seem to be listening to what fans actually want.

Episode 197: The 1975 John Lennon Compilation ”Shaved Fish”

In Episode 90 ("Compilation Compilation") we discussed all the different compilations for each Beatle, including all the John Lennon collections up until 2016 (we didn't have Gimme Some Truth yet). We mentioned 1975's Shaved Fish, but didn't give it much thought since it left out all of John's later music. This episode digs deep into the only "greatest hits" album released in Lennon's lifetime. How did John do choosing his best-of?   Complete episodes can be found at https://ivegotabeatlespodcast.podbean.com.

Episode 196: A Hypothetical 1967 Beatles Set List!

In this episode, Dave and Chris challenged themselves to come up with a hypothetical early 1967 setlist of songs from albums (or unreleased tunes) that the Beatles never performed live on their tours from 1963-66. We selected some tunes from the familiar to the obscure, and put together a list of fun songs we wish the Beatles had played. What do you think? What songs do you wish they'd played? We also weigh in on the "Got Back" setlist and Paul McCartney touring today. Complete episodes can be found at https://ivegotabeatlespodcast.podbean.com.

Episode 195: Review of ”Wings At The Speed of Sound!”

We go back to 1976 for a review of Wings At The Speed of Sound, the album that propelled Wings's 1976 tour across America. This was intended to be a democratic effort where each member of the group sang a lead vocal, and it was supported by two big hit songs, "Let 'Em In" and "Silly Love Songs." How does the album hold up now? Check out the episode to hear our thoughts.   Complete episodes can be found at https://ivegotabeatlespodcast.podbean.com.

Join us as we discuss two Beatles "rejects" from 1965, "If You've Got Trouble" and "That Means A Lot." Should the Beatles have rejected them? Are there any redeeming values to these songs?

Episode 185: ”The Baroque Beatles Book” - interview with Musicologist Alison DeSimone

Let's go back to 1965 and the release of The Baroque Beatles Book, "arrangements" by composer/musicologist/performer Joshua Rifkin, casting music by the Beatles in the styles of J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel. Sounds like a bad idea, right? Quite the contrary, the album was very popular and even hit the charts for a time. Join Dave as he interviews his musicologist colleague Alison DeSimone, an expert on Baroque music, and learn about this fascinating album.
