The Beatles have an avant-garde side that still remains hidden to the casual fan, a good trick considering their ubiquity. The vaults are piled high with bizarre recordings that are frankly better off left there.
In this episode, I introduce some of The Beatles’ strangest recordings – both as a band and as solo artists. Some of these are pretty great, others are just about unlistenable. As an impressionable youth, I took the time to listen to these – and now my suffering and fanaticism can be your quick & dirty guide to the Fab Four’s weird side.
