saw that ^ , it was really good , really informative and some great stills from the time too
Loved the programme. Goodall shoehorning in his modal recitals in his tuneful but thin voice. Sounding like he's giving a lecture to the most serious minds and to an inattentive six year old all at the same time. Always good.
It did bug me how often he claimed listeners had "never" heard anything done like this etc, etc. Which is at odds with the Beatle's own expressed influences.
e.g. Strawberry Fields - Lennon and McCartney heard Good Vibrations and from there decided that they should experiment with making a record from separate recordings in different studios, edited together as they see fit.
The Penny Lane super-piano sound - directly inspired by the recording of Pet Sounds. Particularly McCartney favourite God Only Knows with its combined keyboard of harpsichord, piano and treated piano
The part that I thought he did get absolutely right in that respect was Within You, Without You - which was completely unlike anything that most pop record listeners would have been used to or ever heard of at that time.
The programme was fantastic. Especially the picking apart of the songs from a musical theory perspective.

DID YOU KNOW...
Paul McCartney really DID die in 1966, and was replaced by a evil lookalike cyborg as part of a fiendish plot to inflict "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime" upon the world.
It's a shame that wasn't released twelve months earlier, it would have been the ideal theme for the Star Wars Holiday Special. Imagine Carrie Fisher singing this one!
Wait, did Rifftrax get done for the Holiday Special?
New Starr song featuring McCartney. It's pretty awful as you'd expect.
Geez, what prices! Who does he think he is? Coldplay or something?
I saw him last time he toured NZ too, which was 25 freaking years ago (March 1993)
Yeah, saw him in Melbourne. Excellent show. I think that'll be his last visit down under.
If he waits another 25 years, yes.
