The Beatles New Album Something of a Surprise
Due for release at the end of November, the new Beatles album has proved something of a surprise. As so often in the past, the group have produced a radical change of direction, the end product being a far simpler set than expected. The album has 30 tracks, including two versions of “Revolution”– the 10 minute original and the shorter one on the single. The reversion to The Beatles earlier style is reflected, too, in the sleeve. They felt covers were getting too complex-having started the trend themselves with Sgt Pepper!
