Early to early-mid John led Beatles, Middle Beatles or late Paul "George Martin's golden child" Beatles?
Which one had the better singles and albums? Which one had the better feel?
i prefer macca.
john deep down was a blues / rock and roll guy. he peaked during mmt/sgt peppers. he began a slow regression back to 'rock and roll' during the white album.
macca was lucky to have had a small time jazz band leader for a father that taught him piano at an early age, not to mention instilling in him all of the harmonies from tin pan alley to early jazz and 'pop' songs, all before the rock and roll of the 50s.
how does listening to either in mono or stereo affect the songs themselves? i don't think a few extra or less bars of music between mono/stereo mixes makes any difference at all.
