The English and their History
About this deal
For the still unfinished Get Back album, one last song, Harrison's " I Me Mine", was recorded on 3 January 1970.
In its first three weeks, the album set a record for the highest initial sales of any Capitol LP, and it is the only Capitol compilation later to be adopted in the band's official canon of studio albums. In England, meanwhile, Harrison met sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, who agreed to train him on the instrument. This caused an increase in demand, leading Capitol to bring forward the release of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by three weeks.Stereo editions of all twelve original UK studio albums, along with Magical Mystery Tour and the Past Masters compilation, were released on compact disc both individually and as a box set. Harrison and Starr attended the ceremony with Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and his two sons, Julian and Sean. The success brought increased media exposure, to which the Beatles responded with an irreverent and comical attitude that defied the expectations of pop musicians at the time, inspiring even more interest.
Capitol Records, from December 1963 when it began issuing Beatles recordings for the US market, exercised complete control over format,  compiling distinct US albums from the band's recordings and issuing songs of their choosing as singles. Later on, Sutcliffe decided to leave the band early that year and resume his art studies in Germany.Released on 26 September, Abbey Road sold four million copies within three months and topped the UK charts for a total of seventeen weeks. Several reviewers stated that some of the performances in the film sounded better than their analogous album tracks. Vee-Jay company president Ewart Abner resigned after it was disclosed he used company funds to cover gambling debts.
Among the experimental songs on Revolver was " Tomorrow Never Knows", the lyrics for which Lennon drew from Timothy Leary's The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead. American chart success began after disc jockey Carroll James of AM radio station WWDC, in Washington, DC, obtained a copy of the British single "I Want to Hold Your Hand" in mid-December 1963 and began playing it on-air.According to Gould, the Beatles' fourth studio LP, Beatles for Sale, evidenced a growing conflict between the commercial pressures of their global success and their creative ambitions. Two double-LP sets of the Beatles' greatest hits, compiled by Klein, 1962–1966 and 1967–1970, were released in 1973, at first under the Apple Records imprint. Within six months of the meeting, according to Gould, "Lennon would be making records on which he openly imitated Dylan's nasal drone, brittle strum, and introspective vocal persona"; and six months after that, Dylan began performing with a backing band and electric instrumentation, and "dressed in the height of Mod fashion".
