The Vinyl Review: ‘Magical Mystery Tour’

One of the better albums in my collection is a roughed-up copy of “Magical Mystery Tour.”

I have mentioned it before in AMPED. I think I found it about a year ago in a used record store and only now pulled it out for a second listen.
The Beatles, while not my favorite band, deserve more regular play.

Listening to the music and paging through the mini-book included in the album jacket takes the listener/viewer to another place and time. Strange pictures add to the unique music coming from under the needle.

The jacket adds to the experience, much like one of Alice Cooper’s artistic albums.

I plan to get on the tour bus more frequently.

(A British word seldom heard in songs by American bands, but used at least once by the Beatles: knicker.)
