The more I study the Beatles, the more I appreciate their genius. Once they retired from live touring in August 1966, they were free to experiment in the recording studio, something that no other band had ever considered. Only the Beatles could have demanded the ability to do this. And together with George Martin, they created magic. Using equipment that was incredibly primitive, they managed to push the boundaries of the technical limitations of the day.
They’d been heading in this direction even before they stopped touring. Jeff points us to this video explaining how made “Tomorrow Never Knows.”
