The Beatles

Rubber Soul (180 Gram Vinyl)

$20.99

Limited edition 180-gram, audiophile vinyl LP pressing of this album from the Fab Four comes housed in replicated artwork. The Beatles were just about to make their big transition from mop-topped British Invaders to the innovators of psychedelic rock in the mid- to late-1960s on 1965’s “Rubber Soul.” The mega hit “Drive My Car” is the classic Beatle romantic rocker, but darker songs such as “Nowhere Man” and “Think for Yourself” creep into the lineup. “Michelle” is another romantic ballad that won the Lennon & McCartney team a Grammy. This vinyl pressing contains the 2009 digital remaster of the album, making it sound more vibrant and electrifying than ever before.

Though some might argue that the Beatles’ unprecedented evolution from British Invasion pin-ups to pop music visionaries began with BEATLES FOR SALE, RUBBER SOUL is without a doubt the first album to definitively put the Fab Four in the running for Greatest Band Ever. Virtually every aspect of the Liverpool quartet’s incredibly diverse sound is in evidence here: the dark, irony-filled Dylanism (“Norwegian Wood,” “Nowhere Man”), pop perfection (“In My Life”), the passion for classic tin pan alley balladry (“Girl,” “Michelle”), and the love of good ‘ol rock & roll music (“Drive My Car”). Peppered with nasty fuzz bass, exotic sitar, cartoonishly sped-up piano that sounds like harpsichord, and elements of country, Motown, and classical music, the album reveals a creative scope and willingness to experiment so revolutionary it can now only be termed “Beatlesque.” Though the Fabs don’t go as far out on a limb here as on the more overtly experimental REVOLVER, RUBBER SOUL is perhaps the Beatles’ most finely crafted and accessible work, and consequently many fans’ and critics’ favorite.

The Beatles: George Harrison (vocals, guitar, sitar); John Lennon (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Paul McCartney (vocals, guitar, piano, bass); Ringo Starr (vocals, organ, drums). Additional personnel: George Martin (piano); Mal Evans (organ).
