Bit sniffy about Help here lads! That its a transitional album is not a fault rather part of its importance. Its a key stepping stone between the pop sensibility of the first albums and the experimentalism over what was to come next. Helped as you say, by the Dylan influence, its a very different sounding album (not sure about your constant references to this and HSN as soundtracks - they are also albums in their own right). Its also the album where all their individual voices start to more clearly emerge. There is some good stuff from track 8 onwards, I've Just Seen a Face is really good song that always, for me, calls to mind Simon and Garfunkek.

great podcast! some might say that the Beatles podcast field is a crowded one but the humour and tone of this really won me over. the overall pitch is perfect-not too dry, not too trivial, hits the sweet spot. here's to more in 2020!

Ok easing into it. Nothing new here, not the greatest start but entertaining nonetheless. Other eps are better
