Screw It, We're Just Gonna Talk About the Beatles

Friends from the Los Angeles comedy scene discuss the Beatles, one album at a time. We have no special qualifications nor reason to do this. And we often get facts wrong or leave them out. We just want to because we're obsessed with the Beatles, like any rational human. TOPICS INCLUDE: Reasons we love them! Stories we've read! Opinions we hold! Excitement we cannot contain! THE BEATLES!

The panel discusses the 2006 album Love. A soundtrack to a Cirque du Soleil show, it is also a terrific standalone listening experience. Giles Martin, a then new produce on the Beatles team, carried on his father's legacy and oversaw the project brilliantly.

The new (at the time) mixes brought new life to beloved songs. The mashups, which could have been gimmicky and cheap, were thoughtful and artfully chosen -- they still sound great over 15 years later. Even the sequencing -- starting off with the acapella version of "Because" and ending with the triumphant "All You Need Is Love" -- is deft and tasteful. Along the way, the Beatles of every era is showcased -- sometimes with original tracks, sometimes mashups, sometimes demo versions and alternate takes. The final product is a must-listen for any Beatles fan.

The sons of Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote a song together called "Primrose Hill", and that merits an emergency episode from the panel.

We listen to the song together and give our first reactions live and then discuss our thoughts! Please enjoy!

First we cover some news: recovered Hofner, new Sam Mendes Beatles movies, Rolling Stone "solo Beatles" list, Sean Lennon at the Oscars, and Will's second trip to Liverpool.

THEN we get into covering the new Blue Album remixes.

We like these remixes way more than the ones for early Red Album tracks.

In particular we think Fool on the Hill has been given new life in this remix!

Hey Bulldog was great in mono, but this new stereo mix is fun too. We hear fun new percussion sounds, and a clearly George Harrison riff.

And the guitar solo on Old Brown Shoe really shines!

Blue Album discussion starts at around 40 minutes in.

The Red Album was (the first half of) the first official Beatles Greatest Hits collection when it was issued in 1973. Until the CDs were released in the late 80s, it was the definitive Beatles collection --- it seemed everyone had a copy. Although it is "just" a compilation, the "Red Album" has emotional importance to many Beatles fans for whom it served as a gateway to the band.

So we love the Red Album! But.... we don't really love the remixes! And we have loved most of the remixes that Giles Martin has overseen! But there's something off here, especially with the very early Beatles singles.

But of course there's tons of exceptions to this, and we go over it in this 90 minute discussion. 

We also go over what songs we wish were included in the original Red Album release, and what we think of the changes to the lineup in this expanded release!

Blue album next month!
