Revolver at 50

Sometimes, I read a music review and immediately want to go purchase the album being reviewed. That is the case when I read John Deeth's post about the Beatles' Revolver release. I am familiar with the Beatles in the sense that I am familiar with their "greatest hits" but I've never invested myself into actually listening to their albums. I'm the same way with bands like Aerosmith, the Grateful Dead, The Who, and The Rolling Stones. Those bands are ones I respect because of their reputation and because of the singles on the radio I've heard. In contrast, bands like Rush, KISS, Megadeth, Metallica (duh!), and Bayside (duh!) are bands into which I've invested hours of my time to embrace their albums independent of which tracks were released as singles. I think all musicians have bands that they are compelled to listen to on a more regular basis than other bands. All that said, this is the John Deeth article.

In summary, John Deeth's blog has 3029 more posts than this one and has existed 4 years, 11 months, 1 week, and 2 days more than this one. None of this means anything except that I like statistics like this.
