Lennon in NY
There were many great groups in the sixty's however there was only one super group,"The Beatles", John,Paul,George,and Ringo and who would not know them. Yes, it all started in 1964 on the Ed Sullivan Show in New York when the Beatles first invaded America. "Love me Do" helped get them started but "She Loves You" is the song which put them on top. Throughout the early sixties they were the group which no one could beat, hit after hit. Then came 1966 with Sgrt Peppers, the album which changed music at the time and still is one of the all time greatest albums. From this point on, the Beatles only seemed to get better each album especially during the Apple years. Anyone who lived through this era can remember saying ,Did you get the new Beatle Album? They seemed to advance music with each album. Finally, in 1971 the greatest group disbanded. All of the members went on to record many solo albums.
One Era Of Controvesty was the Yesterday and Today album cover
Proposed cover and released in Europe
The album was released in June of 1966 and contain songs which the group had released in England and some new songs hence the name Yesterday and Today. The Cover was a John Lennon idea, where the band would pose with overalls holding chunks of raw meat and the bloody arms and legs of childrens dolls. the Photo was taken by Robert Whitaker and was not accepted by the American public and Capitol re-called as many of the 750,000 albums as they could find.
USA Released Cover
The next Controvesty for the group was when John Lennon said the group was more popular tha Jesus Christ in a simply statement and it was taken the wrong way and people were burning Beatle albums in the streets.
PAUL WAS DEAD?
