For Pete Seeger

Eight years old, this song. Many things have happened since.


READERS’ POLL RESULTS: Your Favorite Beatles Album of All Time Revealed — Albumism

Looking at the results, the outputs of The Beatles during their mid-career as a band (that is, late 1965 to mid-1967) were the most appreciated by the fans.

By my own reckoning, the boys were active in the recording studio for 77 months from February 1963 up to June 1969, or an average of 25.3 months each for the early years (February 1963 to April 1965), mid-career (May 1965 to June 1967), and late years of the group (July 1967 to June 1969).

Given this, their early outputs did not figure well in this survey, ad the late years did have two (Abbey Road at #1 and The White Album #4). The rest in the Top 5 are mid-career productions (Revolver #2, Rubber Soul #3 and Sgt. Pepper #5)
