Win Three Beatles Vinyl LPs
Last month, the Beatles re-released their entire catalog on vinyl, and now you can win three of those titles courtesy of Ultimate Classic Rock and Apple Corps.
We're giving away copies of the three albums the Beatles released between Dec. 1965 and June 1967, 'Rubber Soul,' 'Revolver' and 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.' These are manufactured on 180-gram vinyl, with complete replications of the original artwork, including the 'Sgt. Pepper' cutouts, the master of which recently sold for $87,000.
These are arguably the greatest trifecta in the history of recorded music, reflecting an unprecedented artistic growth that saw them shed the image of the four lovable moptops and grow into serious musicians. Included on the three records are such classics as 'In My Life,' 'Nowhere Man,' 'Here, There and Everywhere,' 'Taxman,' 'When I'm 64' and 'A Day in the Life.'
"If we look at it by today’s standards, whoever the most popular bands in the world are, they will typically put out an album every four years," producer Rick Rubin said of the Beatles in 2009. "So, let’s say two albums as an eight year cycle. And think of the growth or change between those two albums. The idea that The Beatles made thirteen albums in seven years and went through that arc of change... it can’t be done. Truthfully, I think of it as proof of God, because it’s beyond man’s ability."
