This documentary examines the cultural, social, spiritual and musical movements that were inspired by The Beatles. Filled with interviews and archival footage, this is one is worth a watch.
Featuring interviews with Barry Miles, Joe Boyd, Robert Wyatt, along with music from Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Soft Machine, and AMM. Going Underground is not only an examination of 1960’s British counter-culture but also the impact The Beatles, and more specifically Paul McCartney, had in growing the movement.
Rock writer Jim Beviglia’s Counting Down the Beatles: Their 100 Finest Songs examines the Beatles short but extraordinary catalog in the band’s unparalleled career. Ranked in descending order from #100 to #1, each song is accompanied by a lengthy essay providing information on the song’s writing and recording, context on where it falls within the band’s timeline, and the author’s analysis and explanation why it deserves its position.
