Announcing... Deeper Cuts!

Ten months after our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are back with Shannon Dohar to talk about their new music podcast, Deeper Cuts. Every week on Deeper Cuts, Graeme, Rob and Shannon will listen to an album that meant something one to them and discuss what it means to them now. The show features albums from every genre, every era, just as long as the album is of importance to one of our panel. It's a podcast very much in the style of A Year With The Beatles and we hope you'll check it out. Whilewe're here for a visit, Graeme, Rob and Shannon also discuss Graeme's abortive attempt to follow the band's post-Beatle career and the 50th anniversary remix of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by Giles Martin. If you want to check out Deeper Cuts, visit our website at www.deepercutspodcast.com RSS Feed: deepercuts.libsyn.com/rss

Episode 12 - Let It Be

In the twelfth and final month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined one last time by Shannon Dohar to discuss the Beatles final album (at least according to release date) Let It Be. The three get into a … spirited discussion of the merits (or lack thereof) of Phil Spector’s after-the-fact production of the album and talk about their favourite songs (with Graeme, again, taking on all comers about “The Long and Winding Road”!) as well as the less recommended but still notable tracks. And they talk about whether, under the strictest of definitions, this can be considered the Beatles’ swansong. For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Shannon look back on this past year with the Beatles and reflect on the Beatles’ journey and its pivotal moments and what this year meant to all of them. This is the final episode of A Year With The Beatles. We’d like to thank all the people who helped us in our discussions of the Beatles over the past year and to tha...

Episode 11b - Leftover Singles and B-Sides 1966-1970

As a further supplement to our eleventh episode, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones welcome back Bill Evenson to talk about all the singles and B-sides that never made it onto an album during the second half of the Beatles' career. The three talk about the singles that caught their fancy, their favourite B-sides, what surprised them and the lasting legacy of "Hey Jude" and "Paperback Writer" and what this well-prepared stew of leftovers say about the latter days of the fab four's work together

Episode 11a - The Animated Beatles

As a supplement to our eleventhepisode, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones talk to Felicity Kuzinitz about the Beatles' career in animated cartoons during the 1960s: the first as the subject of a Saturday morning cartoon on ABC from 1965-1969; the second in the big-budget 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine. Graeme, Rob and Felicity discuss the TV version's bizarre choiceof songs from the Beatles' catalogue and terrible (though familiar) voice work. They generally marvel at the achievements of Yellow Submarinein terms of its contribution to pop art and its portrayal of the fab four, even if they don't entirely get the plot! The three also discuss the original songs by the Beatles that make it into the movie.

Episode 11 - Abbey Road

In the eleventh month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined by Steven Schapansky of the popular Doctor Who podcast Radio Free Skaroto discuss the Beatles penultimate or final (depending on whether you agree with Graeme or Rob) album, Abbey Road. The trio discuss whether Abbey Road should be considered the Beatles' final album before moving on to a discussion regarding the surprises the Beatles still demonstrated in this album, the standout tracks and the linked suite of songs. Graeme, Rob and Steven also delve into whether Abbey Road was a progenitor of 1970s music and what state the band was in at the end of their career together. For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Steven watch the sadly out-of-print 1982 documentary The Compleat Beatles and discuss why, even today, this is one of the best Beatles documentaries ever made, highlighting the strengths of the documentary, Malcolm MacDowell's narrationand George Martin's gravitas. The three (who don'...

Episode 10 - The Beatles (aka White Album)

In the tenthmonth of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined once again by Reality Bombco-producer, writer and musician Alex Kennard as they devote the entire episode to examining the White Album. Graeme, Rob and Alex discuss the White Album's strengths, the great tracks and the weird little tracks that they're rooting for all the same. There's a deep dive into several of the tracks, particularly "Helter Skelter" and "Revolution No. 9" and Graeme, Alex and Rob talk about how the album signals the beginning of the end of the Beatles. And, as they say, much more!

Episode 9 - Magical Mystery Tour

In the ninthmonth of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined by their old friend, TV and film author(and Liverpudlian) Jim Sangster where they talk about Magical Mystery Tour as the most "Liverpool" of the Beatles'albums and talk about the influences the city has throughout, most notably in "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane". Along the way they discuss the album's contribution to the emerging psychadelic movement and the band's trend toward introspection and Jim points outsome filthy phrases only a Scouser would know. For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Jim watch the 1967 TV special Magical Mystery Tour and discuss its origins in Northern English bank holiday traditions and why most people consider this production a failurefor the fab four.

Episode 8 - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

In the eighth month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined once again by Shannon Dohar to talk about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in a far-ranging conversation that considers how it changed the record album, the qualities that make it unique, its contribution to the Summer of Love, the songs that deserve to be a museum and the songs that you want to take on a desert island. And we get a jump on all the thinkpieces coming next year about how Sgt. Pepper changed the face of popular music completely. For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Shannon watch Eric Idle's 1978 Beatles parody mockumentary The Rutles - All You Need is Cash and recall its funniest scenes and the amazing songs by Neil Innes and they ponder why it works so well as a parody of the fab four.

For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Alex watch an episode from musician Howard Goodall's 2005 documentary series 20th Century Greats about Lennon and McCartney. The three have a far-ranging conversation (occasionally punctuated by some disagreement) about Goodall's approach to the Beatles, the band's contribution to classical music and the music theory behind the Beatles' work and the techniques the Beatles used in their songmaking and how that grew and evolved over their careers.
