They should call you The Beatles Historian because you are correct, Mal Evans confirmed in issue 64 of The Beatles Book Monthly that George played tambourine on Birthday , he even goes in detail to explain how he used a gloved hand to prevent blisters.

Only two albums? The Beatles, Abbey Road and Let It Be were all released under Apple, not parlophone. Are asking for pre-parlophone records?

Would you be so kind and choose a 100 points question for me again please, Dark Overlord? Thank you!

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I don't really understand the question, but I'm going with Sgt. Pepper and The Magical Mystery Tour EP

Good guess but i'm afraid that you're incorrect. The Beatles original 1962 contract expired in June 1966 and they didn't get a new one until January 1967, so the correct answer would've been Revolver and A Collection Of Beatles Oldies.

Mark moves 5 spaces and lands on a pink square, entering area 2 in the process.

Did you know that John's bass part on Helter Skelter was actually an overdub.

Mark earns 100 points and rolls again.

Mark moves 5 spaces to instrumentation.

I don't like instrumentation, so 300.

I also have to object to your answer on which Parlophone albums were released while The Beatles were out of contract. There was only one, Revolver A Collection of Beatles Oldies, though released during the period they were out of contract, was released under the terms and conditions of the 1962 contract and its appendixes, so was a contract album.

Otherwise you have to include all post-1976 until Past Masters  (which was the first new collection released under the new agreement between EMI and Apple following years of court battles over who controlled how their music was released).

I should've said what 2 Parlophone albums were released by The Beatles while they were still together during the period where they weren't under contract, my mistake.

Ron Nasty, instrumentation for 300:

Since I'm not sure what question to ask you, i will give you a choice of what question to answer, you could choose to answer A, B, or both. If you choose to answer both and get both correct, then you get 600 points. If you pick to answer both and only get one correct, then you get 300 points. If you pick to answer only one and get that one correct, then you get 300 points.

A:

What guitar model did John and George use for the electric guitar parts on Nowhere Man ?

B:

Who plays harpsichord on Piggies ?

No thinking time necessary. Chris Thomas is the harpsichord player. Not greedy so I'll stick to the one answer for the round.

You are both correct, John played acoustic guitar on Yellow Submarine and Chris Thomas played harpsichord on Piggies although @Ron Nasty i was really hoping that you would go for both of them.

@The Hole Got Fixed @sir walter raleigh @Martha @Ron Nasty pick 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, or 1,000 for your next question.

You're on the 5th tile of the 2nd area, which is green, which means The Beatles in film.

Looks like Ron Nasty's going in for the kill here with books for 1,000:

During the intro to Mark Lewisohn's 1988 masterpiece The Beatles Recording Sessions, who does he interview and what song is he corrected on when said person says that he played a certain instrument on that song and what instrument is that?

Note:

When a question like this is stated, all questions within must be answered correctly or it is counted as wrong. In this case, Ron must say who the person is, must name the song that the person was corrected for, and must name the instrument said person was talking about, although instrument model doesn't matter in this case, just the name of the instrument itself.
