I remember watching an episode of the short-lived Rock n Roll Jeopardy, and one of the contestants had a Ringo story. He was either working at a music supply shop or was working for the promoter of one of Ringo's concerts (likely the former). He needed, I think, guitar strings but thought the guy in question should pay for them or give them for free. "Come on, do it for Ringo," he cooed. And, indeed, he didn't have to pay.
I miss Rock and Roll Jeopardy.
I remember Mark McGrath was incredibly good at that.
Yeah. He was like the Ken Jennings of RRJ.

I've only listened to a few selected tracks—"Day in the Life" and "Strawberry Fields Forever"—but there seems to be greater distinction between different instruments and effects.

Interesting perspective here, suggesting that the album also reflects rock star boredom and confinement. In that, perhaps, an extension of McCartney's original idea behind Pepper being to reinvent themselves.

Been doing an A/B test and the new stereo mix of Sgt Pepper is far superior, The drums really stand out, I can see why Ringo was so happy with it.

I've never been anti-Beatles or whatever - they were actually one of the first musical obsessions I had in my embryonic attraction to music - but they're another one of those bands that my affection for seems to have gone on overdrive for in the last few years. I'm sure the steady diet of reissues, documentaries, etc. has helped (as did seeing McCartney live), but I'm actually excited to go pick up the new Peppers record this afternoon, as a new release I've been waiting for. Wild.

I'm the same way. Even as musical tastes have gone in more extreme directions (more abstract, noisy, drone), my love for the Beatles has only increased. I can listen to "Tomorrow Never Knows" and "Strawberry Fields" over and over and over, just inhaling the songs in and of themselves while also marvelling at the historical context. I'm very much a "different strokes for different folks" person when it comes to cultural taste, but I do have a hard time understanding people who say they hate the Beatles.

OK, I know she generally sucks, but I kind of agree with some of what she is saying. Part of me thinks she is writing it because it's now in fashion to bash Pepper, but I thought she had some decent points. What am I missing?

I don't know a single woman alive, except Amanda Marcotte I guess, who was turned off by that album - either at the time or over the passage of years. And stuff like the album cover being deliberately designed to "repel the female gaze" seems like an awfully giant stretch to me. Also, I guess I have no idea how Marcotte dances, but her assertion that Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is one of the few songs that harkens back to the sound of Beatles dance-pop is a completely insane assertion. Also, the Beatles were never really particularly a dance-pop band, so I have no idea what she's talking about there anyways. She provides basically no evidence that Sgt. Pepper is the album, particularly, that cemented pop/rock as the music of men other than the fact she doesn't care for the cover and critics liked it at the time.

She's making a case ("rock music is often misogynistic and alienating to women") that is pretty much rock solid and going about failing to make her case by picking a particularly non-credible battle to fight ("rock is like this, specifically, because of this album which alienated the Beatles female fanbase"). It takes a special kind of disconnected contrarian hipster to try to make the case that rock is anti-woman, and actually fail at doing it.

And at the end of the article she admits she's re-litigating a fight she's already won. It's so bizarre.
