Number nine... number nine...

Ideal for listening over a couple days or sittings, Paul Ingles' tribute to the weirdest, longest, and perhaps best Beatles album was a delight for me, who first listened in the late 70s and grew up fascinated and terrified by the recording. Here are explanations of the songs you thought you got (Honey Pie), wish you'd got (Sexy Sadie), and never got (Revolution 9), made understandable and palatable by a gaggle of musicians and fans. You understand the woman who hates the album because you hated it too, for a moment, maybe longer. Just as you get in line with those who extol its virtues.

What a feast and a treat for Beatles fans everywhere.
