Is this Phase 2 of Sgt. Pepper?
on April 2, 2016
Magical Mystery Tour is to Sgt. Pepper like Lumpy Gravy is to We're Only In It For The Money. You have to have both albums to get the bigger picture. Why? Because Sgt. Pepper would've been perfect with Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. God only knows where those two songs would've been placed on Pepper.
Besides those 2 songs, Magical Mystery Tour has some very over-looked songs. Like Blue Jay Way and Baby, You're a Rich Man. These 2 albums give a good representation of The Beatles at their peak of creativity. After this, their creativity slowly descended. Sure, The White Album is great but it's not the same. I never cared much for Abbey Road and Let It Be.
So all in all, you need this album. I Am The Walrus is worth the price of the entire album.
