What makes a song a ‘classic’? What makes a song a ‘standard’? Perhaps the answers to these questions are totally subjective! And when the three co-hosts of Fab 4 Free 4 All try to figure out the answers, wouldn’t it make sense for them to bring the music of the Beatles and solo Beatles into the question?! In this VERY spirited episode – based on a question posed by Mitch to Facebook – the guys try to apply the guidelines of ‘standard’ and ‘classic’ to the Beatles’ catalog. The guys’ comments … and the additional questions that the conversation promotes … may surprise you!
The end of 2018 was a VERY busy period for the Beatles organization … and a potentially costly time for Beatles fans! Paul McCartney released a new album, ‘Egypt Station’ (which is reviewed in Episodes 195 & 196) and added two more titles to his ongoing Archive Collection. The expanded editions of ‘Red Rose Speedway’ and ‘Wild Life’ were released in multiple formats and configurations. For the first time, two titles were combined to make a ‘Super Deluxe’ box. In these two episodes, the guys review and analyze the audio and video discs included in the ‘Red Rose Speedway’ deluxe edition.
