I see we are at loggerheads on this issue No6.Perhaps you are a "Prisoner" of the classical school that doesn't appreciate the initial idea as genius -only the finished article.Dylan seems to float your boat? Maybe, you should refer to his views on Lennon & McCartneys influence and agree with your guiding light. Sir George Martin, unassuming and modest fellow that he is, has reitterated my point numerous times and states "he simply got lucky with The Beatles and anything he did was under strict instruction from the geniuses". As a lifelong Beatlemaniac you will appreciate that I have accumulated vast amounts of information relating to the groups activities and have read every noteworthy book ever published. Suffice to say I know that George Martin is a very good record producer but what has he achieved beyond The Beatles? Lennon -Imagine.McCartney -Band On The Run.Sir George Martin?
Here endeth the sermon.
