Christmas 1965 - Christmas 1967.

Funny to think I did actually live through those years, as a toddler!

I remember picking out Rubber Soul from an uncle's record collection and thinking...oooh weird..although it was obviously some years later. Going back in the time machine, I would go and buy it for Christmas.

I was also a Top of the Pops addict (in later years) so I would get a buzz from seeing them doing Paperback Writer live in June 66, followed by the whole world tour fiasco that summer! I would've stuck by them of course.

I may also fly down to Spain to check out John on the How I Won.. film-set..

I'm not a huge Sgt. Pepper fan, but it would be interesting to see them 'regenerating' at that time.

Then let's take it up to Magical Mystery Tour on the telly....and I may even check out what toys my 3 year old self got that year!

Nice – I never thought of that. Imagine if you could take it a step further by leaving what you really wanted under the tree!

I would pick from Revolver time till Abbey Road time!

After I took it, it opened my eyes. We only use one-tenth of our brain. Just think what we could all accomplish if we could only tap that hidden part. It would mean a whole new world. If the politicians would take LSD, there wouldn't be any more War or poverty or famine.

Aug '65 to Aug '67.

So I'd witness Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver and Sgt Peppers being released, and I would've gone to Shea!

My favourite Beatles period, I think the period where they changed their sound the most, and started to become more creative and inventive in their music.
Also, I think these few years shaped the decade the most, if that makes any sense at all. You take one song off of any of those albums and it sounds like it's got the Swinging Sixties running through it. That sounds weird but I don't know how to explain it any better.a-hard-days-night-ringo-9
