The power of rock and roll is a constantly amazing process. Although it is Bob Dylan who is the single most important figure in rock and roll; and although it is the Rolling Stones who are the embodiment of a rock and roll band; it is nonetheless Our Boys. The Beatles, who are the perfect product and result of everything that rock and roll means and encompasses. Never has this been so plainly evident as on their new two-album set. The Beatles (Apple SWBO 101).
Whatever else it is or isn’t, it is the best album they have ever released, and only the Beatles are capable of making a better one.
You are either hip to it, or you ain’t.
