THIS YEAR MARKED the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ totemic album Revolver.

A template for successive rock albums in the intervening decades, the groundbreaking 1966 record saw all three songwriting Beatles hit a creative peak.

(Harrison would only return to form on their final studio album Abbey Road, at which point Lennon had all but lost interest. The White Album, released in 1968, meanwhile, is a hotchpotch combination of rough sketches and brilliantly individualistic tracks)

Underpinned by the best drumming of Ringo Starr’s career, and guided by the expert hand of the band’s third genius, producer George Martin, Revolver meshed pop, rock, folk, classical, and Indian idioms, setting the scene for the rest of a decade when The Beatles produced the most thrilling music in history.
