Bert Kaempfert - Portrait In Music (Vinyl, LP)
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in As pioneers in recordingsongwriting and artistic presentation, the Beatles revolutionised many aspects of the music industry and were often publicised as leaders of the era's youth and sociocultural movements. Led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartneythe Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over three years frominitially with Stuart Sutcliffe playing bass.
The core trio of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison, together sincewent through a succession of drummers, including Pete Bestbefore asking Starr to join them in Manager Brian Epstein moulded them into a professional act, and producer George Martin guided and developed their recordings, greatly expanding their domestic success after their first hit, " Love Me Do ", in late As their popularity grew into the intense fan frenzy dubbed " Beatlemania ", the band acquired the nickname "the Fab Four", with Epstein, Martin and other members of the band's entourage sometimes given the informal title of " fifth Beatle ".
By earlythe Beatles were international stars, leading the " British Invasion " of the United States pop market, breaking numerous sales records, and inspiring Britain's cultural resurgence. They soon made their film debut with A Hard Day's Night From onwards, they produced records of greater complexity, including the albums Rubber SoulRevolver and Sgt.
Heralding the album eratheir success elevated the album to be the dominant form of record consumption over singles ; they also inspired a greater public interest in psychedelic drugs and Eastern spirituality, and furthered advancements in electronic musicalbum art and music videos. Inthey founded Apple Corpsa multi-armed multimedia corporation that continues to oversee projects related to the band's legacy.
After the group's break-up inall four members enjoyed success as solo artists. Lennon was shot and killed inand Harrison died of lung cancer in McCartney and Starr remain musically active. The Beatles are the best-selling music act of all timewith estimated sales of million units worldwide. They hold the record for most number-one albums on the UK Albums Chart 15most number-one hits on the Billboard Hot chart 20and most singles sold in the UK They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inand all four main members were inducted individually between and In andthe group topped Rolling Stone ' s lists of the greatest artists in history.
Time magazine named them among the 20th century's most important people. They briefly called themselves the Blackjacks, before changing their name to the Quarrymen after discovering that another local group were already using the name. Harrison auditioned for Lennon, impressing him with his playing, but Lennon initially thought Harrison was too young.
After a month of persistence, during a second meeting arranged by McCartneyHarrison performed the lead guitar part of the instrumental song " Raunchy " on the upper deck of a Liverpool bus,  and they enlisted him as lead guitarist. He suggested changing the band's name to Beatalsas a tribute to Buddy Holly and the Crickets. By early July, they had refashioned themselves as the Silver Beatles, and by the middle of August simply the Beatles.
Allan Williamsthe Beatles' unofficial manager, arranged a residency for them in Hamburg. They auditioned and hired drummer Pete Best in mid-August Koschmider had converted a couple of strip clubs in the LP) into music venues, and he initially placed the Beatles at the Indra Club. After closing Indra due to noise complaints, he moved them to the Kaiserkeller in October.
During the next two years, the Beatles were resident for periods in Hamburg, where they used Preludin both recreationally and to maintain their energy through all-night performances.
After the Beatles completed their second Hamburg residency, they enjoyed increasing popularity in Liverpool with the growing Merseybeat movement. However, they were growing tired of the monotony of numerous appearances at the same clubs night after night. They were fresh, and they were honest, and they had what I thought was a sort of presence Epstein courted the band over the next couple of months, and they appointed him as their manager in January He eventually negotiated a one-month early release in exchange for one last recording session in Hamburg.
Epstein began negotiations with record labels for a recording contract. To secure a UK record contract, Epstein negotiated an early end to the band's contract with Polydor, in exchange for more recordings backing Tony Sheridan. I Love You ". Martin initially selected the Starr version of "Love Me Do" for the band's first single, though subsequent re-pressings featured the White version, with Starr on tambourine.
In Decemberthe Beatles concluded their fifth and final Hamburg residency. He'd tell us that jeans were not particularly smart and could we possibly manage to wear proper trousers, but he didn't want us suddenly looking square. He'd let us have our own sense of individuality. It was supplemented by the four tracks already released on their first two singles. Martin considered recording the LP live at The Cavern Club, but after deciding that the building's acoustics were inadequate, he elected to simulate a "live" album with minimal production in "a single marathon session at Abbey Road".
It reached number one on every UK chart except Record Retailerwhere it peaked at number two. Recalling how the Beatles "rushed to deliver a debut album, bashing out Please Please Me in a day", AllMusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote: "Decades after its release, the album still sounds fresh, precisely because of its intense origins.
And the words were almost irrelevant. Released in MarchPlease Please Me was the first of eleven consecutive Beatles albums released in the United Kingdom to reach number one. 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. Greeted with riotous enthusiasm by screaming fans, the press dubbed the phenomenon " Beatlemania ".
In late October, the Beatles began a five-day tour of Sweden, their first time abroad since the final Hamburg engagement of December Around 50 to journalists and photographers, as well as representatives from the BBCalso joined the airport reception, the first of more than such events.
Please Please Me maintained the top position on the Record Retailer chart for 30 weeks, only to be displaced by its follow-up, With the Beatles which EMI released on 22 November to record advance orders ofcopies. The LP topped a half-million albums sold in one week. In a reversal of then standard practice, EMI released the album ahead of the impending single " I Want to Hold Your Hand ", with the song excluded to maximise the single's sales. EMI's American subsidiary, Capitol Recordshindered the Beatles' releases in the United States for more than a year by initially declining to issue their music, including their first three singles.
Concurrent negotiations with the independent US label Vee-Jay led to the release of some, but not all, of the songs in The Beatlescomprising most of the songs of Parlophone's Please Please Mebut a management shake-up led to the album not being released. The record received some airplay in the Tidewater area of Virginia from Gene Loving of radio station WGH and was featured on the "Rate-a-Record" segment of American Bandstandbut it failed to catch on nationally.
This caused an increase in demand, leading Capitol to bring forward the release of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by three weeks.
The Beatles  along with Capitol's debut album, Meet the Beatles! On 7 Februarythe Beatles departed from Heathrow with an estimated 4, fans waving and screaming as the aircraft took off. Kennedy Airportan uproarious crowd estimated at 3, greeted them.
Biographer Jonathan Gould writes that, according to the Nielsen rating service, it was "the largest audience that had ever been recorded for an American television program ". The Beatles' first visit to the US took place when the nation were still mourning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy the previous November. The group's popularity generated unprecedented interest in British music, and many other UK acts subsequently made their American debuts, successfully touring over the next three years in what was termed the British Invasion.
Capitol Records' lack of interest throughout did not go unnoticed, and a competitor, United Artists Recordsencouraged their film division to offer the Beatles a three-motion-picture deal, primarily for the commercial potential of the soundtracks in the US. United Artists released a full soundtrack album for the North American market, combining Beatles songs and Martin's orchestral score; elsewhere, the group's third studio LP, A Hard Day's Nightcontained songs from the film on side one and other new recordings on side two.
All of the disparate influences on their first two albums coalesced into a bright, Bert Kaempfert - Portrait In Music (Vinyl, original sound, filled with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies. To many of Dylan's followers in the folk music scene, the Beatles were seen as idolaters, not idealists.
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 instrumentationand "dressed in the height of Mod fashion". During the US tour, the group were confronted with racial segregation in the country at the time.
I'd sooner lose our appearance money. According to Gould, the Beatles' fourth studio LP, Beatles for Saleevidenced a growing conflict between the commercial pressures of their global success and their creative ambitions. Released in early December, its eight original compositions stood out, demonstrating the growing maturity of the Lennon—McCartney songwriting partnership. I was pretty stunned for a month or two.
Harrison's use of psychedelic drugs encouraged his path to meditation and Hinduism. He commented: "For me, it was like a flash.
The first time I had acidit just opened up something in my head that was inside of me, and I realized a lot of things. I didn't learn them because I already knew them, but that happened to be the key that opened the door to reveal them. From the moment I had that, I wanted to have it all the time — these thoughts about the yogis and the Himalayas, and Ravi 's music.
In July, the Beatles' second film, Help! Described as "mainly a relentless spoof of Bond ",  it inspired a mixed response among both reviewers and the band. McCartney said: " Help! It was fun, but basically, as an idea for a film, it was a bit wrong. The Help! The group's third US tour opened with a performance before a world-record crowd of 55, at New York's Shea Stadium on 15 August — "perhaps the most famous of all Beatles' concerts", in Lewisohn's description.
At a LP) in Atlanta, the Beatles gave one of the first live performances ever to make use of a foldback system of on-stage monitor speakers.
In mid-October, the Beatles entered the recording studio; for the first time when making an album, they had an extended period without other major commitments. Now we were really beginning to think about albums as a bit of art on their own.
And because they were writing different material, we were playing differently. As the lyrics grew more artful, fans began to study them for deeper meaning. While some of Rubber Soul ' s songs were the product of Lennon and McCartney's collaborative songwriting,  the album also included distinct compositions from each,  though they continued to share official credit. Capitol Records, from December 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.
According to Beatles biographer Bill Harryit has been incorrectly suggested that this was meant as a satirical response to the way Capitol had "butchered" the US versions of the band's albums. During a tour of the Philippines the month after the Yesterday and Today furore, the Beatles unintentionally snubbed the nation's first lady, Imelda Marcoswho had expected them to attend a breakfast reception at the Presidential Palace. The resulting riots endangered the group and they escaped the country with difficulty.
We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first — rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Almost as soon as they returned home, the Beatles faced a fierce backlash from US religious and social conservatives as well as the Ku Klux Klan over a comment Lennon had made in a March interview with British reporter Maureen Cleave.
I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right Jesus was alright but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me. At a press conference, Lennon pointed out, "If I'd said television was more popular than Jesus, I might have got away with it. Released in August, a week before the Beatles' final tour, Revolver marked another artistic step forward for the group. Its creation involved eight tape decks distributed about the EMI building, each staffed by an engineer or band member, who randomly varied the movement of a tape loop while Martin created a composite recording by sampling the incoming data.
As preparations were made for a tour of the US, the Beatles knew that their music would hardly be heard. Having originally used Vox AC30 amplifiers, they later acquired more powerful watt amplifiers, specially designed by Vox for them as they moved into larger venues inbut these were still inadequate. Struggling to compete with the volume of sound generated by screaming fans, the band had grown increasingly bored with the routine of performing live.
The band performed none of their new songs on the tour. Freed from the burden of touring, the Beatles embraced an increasingly experimental approach as they recorded Sgt. Pepper had to be different. We had microphones right down in the bells of brass instruments and headphones turned into microphones attached to violins. We used giant primitive oscillators to vary the speed of instruments and vocals and we had tapes chopped to pieces and stuck together upside down and the wrong way around.
Pepper LP followed with a rush-release in May. The overwhelming consensus is that the Beatles had created a popular masterpiece: a rich, sustained, and overflowing work of collaborative genius whose bold ambition and startling originality dramatically enlarged the possibilities and raised the expectations of what the experience of listening to popular music on record could be.
On the basis of this perception, Sgt. Pepper became the catalyst for an explosion of mass enthusiasm for album-formatted rock that would revolutionise both the aesthetics and the economics of the record business in ways that far outstripped the earlier pop explosions triggered by the Elvis phenomenon of and the Beatlemania phenomenon of In the wake of Sgt. Pepperthe underground and mainstream press widely publicised the Beatles as leaders of youth culture, as well as "lifestyle revolutionaries".
Pepper topped the UK charts for 23 consecutive weeks, with a further four weeks at number one in the period through to February Pepper ' s initial commercial success exceeded that of all previous Beatles albums.
Pepper at number one on its list of the greatest albums of all time. Two Beatles film projects were conceived within weeks of completing Sgt. Pepper : Magical Mystery Toura one-hour television film, and Yellow Submarinean animated feature-length film produced by United Artists. The next day, they travelled to Bangor for his Transcendental Meditation retreat. On 27 August, their manager's assistant, Peter Brown, phoned to inform them that Epstein had died.
I knew that we were in trouble then. I didn't really have any misconceptions about our ability to do anything other than play music, and I was scared.
I thought, 'We've fuckin' had it now. I don't think it could have been worse if they had heard that their own fathers had dropped dead. Pepper however, in line with the band's wishes, the packaging reinforced the idea that the release was a film soundtrack rather than a follow-up to Sgt. Magical Mystery Tour first aired on Boxing Day to an audience of approximately 15 million.
The group were less involved with Yellow Submarinewhich only featured the band appearing as themselves for a short live-action segment. Their time in India marked one of the band's most prolific periods, yielding numerous songs, including a majority of those on their next album. McCartney said, "We made a mistake. We thought there was more to him than there was. John and Paul got carried away with the idea and blew millions, and Ringo and I just had to go along with it.
From late May to mid-Octoberthe group recorded what became The Beatlesa double LP commonly known as "the White Album" for its virtually featureless cover. With the record, the band executed a wider range of musical styles  and broke with their recent tradition of incorporating several musical styles in one song by keeping each piece of music consistently faithful to a select genre.
Pepper had. The project's impetus came from an idea Martin attributes to McCartney, who suggested they "record an album of new material and rehearse it, then perform it before a live audience for the very first time — on record and on film". It was a time when relations between the Beatles were at their lowest ebb. Upon returning, he threatened to leave the band unless they "abandon[ed] all talk of live performance" and instead focused on finishing a new album, initially titled Get Backusing songs recorded for the TV special.
His bandmates agreed, and it was decided to salvage the footage shot for the TV production for use in a feature film. To alleviate tensions within the band and improve the quality of their live sound, Harrison invited keyboardist Billy Preston to participate in the last nine days of sessions.
New strains developed between the band members regarding the appointment of a financial adviser, the need for which had become evident without Epstein to manage business affairs. McCartney refused to sign the management contract with Klein, but he was out-voted by the other Beatles. Martin stated that he was surprised when McCartney asked him to produce another album, as the Get Back sessions had been "a miserable experience" and he had "thought it was the end of the road for all of us".
The completion and mixing of " I Want You She's So Heavy " on 20 August was the last occasion on which all four Beatles were together in the same studio. They considered a different approach to songwriting by ending the Lennon—McCartney pretence and having four compositions apiece from Lennon, McCartney and Harrison, with two from Starr and a lead single around Christmas. Released on 26 September, Abbey Road sold four million copies within three months and topped the UK charts for a total of seventeen weeks.
Lennon, in Denmark at the time, did not participate. McCartney was unhappy with the producer's approach and particularly dissatisfied with the lavish orchestration on " The Long and Winding Road ", which involved a fourteen-voice choir and piece instrumental ensemble.
On 8 MayLet It Be was released. McCartney filed suit for the dissolution of the Beatles' contractual partnership on 31 December Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr all released solo albums in Their solo records sometimes involved one or more of the others;  Starr's Ringo was the only album to include compositions and performances by all four ex-Beatles, albeit on separate songs. Two double-LP sets of the Beatles' greatest hits, compiled by Klein, — and —were released inat first under the Apple Records imprint.
The music and enduring fame of the Beatles were commercially exploited in various other ways, again often outside their creative control. Displeased with the production's use of his song, Harrison withdrew his permission to use it. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Banda musical film starring the Bee Gees and Peter Framptonwas a commercial failure and an "artistic fiasco", according to Ingham.
Accompanying the wave of Beatles nostalgia and persistent reunion rumours in the US during the s, several entrepreneurs made public offers to the Beatles for a reunion concert.
Lennon and McCartney were watching the live broadcast at Lennon's apartment at the Dakota in New York, which was within driving distance of the NBC studio where the show was being broadcast.
The former bandmates briefly entertained the idea of going to the studio and surprising Michaels by accepting his offer, but decided not to. With Starr on drums and McCartney and his wife, Lindacontributing backing vocals, the song was released as a single in May Inthe Beatles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame LP), their first year of eligibility.
Live at the BBCthe first official release of unissued Beatles performances in seventeen years, appeared in Anthology was the culmination of work begun inwhen Apple Corps director Neil Aspinalltheir former road manager and personal assistant, had started to gather material for a documentary with the working title The Long and Winding Road.
McCartney, Harrison and Starr also added new instrumental and vocal parts to songs recorded as demos by Lennon in the late s. The releases were commercially successful and the television series was viewed by an estimated million people. The Beatles' 1a compilation album of the band's British and American number-one hits, was released on 13 November It became the fastest-selling album of all time, with 3.
Harrison died from metastatic lung cancer in November The tribute event took place at the Royal Albert Hall on the first anniversary of Harrison's death. InLet It Be Nakeda reconceived version of the Let It Be album, with McCartney supervising production, was released.
One of the main differences from the Spector-produced version was the omission of the original string arrangements. The US album configurations from to were released as box sets in and ; The Capitol Albums, Volume 1 and Volume 2 included both stereo and mono versions based on the mixes that were prepared for vinyl at the time of the music's original American release.
As a soundtrack for Cirque du Soleil 's Las Vegas Beatles stage revue, LoveGeorge Martin and his son Giles remixed and blended of the band's recordings to create what Martin called "a way of re-living the whole Beatles musical lifespan in a very condensed period". On 9 Septemberthe Beatles' entire back catalogue was reissued following an extensive digital remastering process that lasted four years.
Owing to a long-running royalty disagreement, the Beatles were among the last major artists to sign deals with online music services. Universal was allowed to keep the Beatles' recorded music catalogue, managed by Capitol Records under its Capitol Music Group division. That December saw the release of another 59 Beatles recordings on iTunes. The set, titled The Beatles Bootleg Recordingshad the opportunity to gain a year copyright extension conditional on the songs being published at least once before the end of Apple Records released the recordings on 17 December to prevent them from going into the public domain and had them taken down from iTunes later that same day.
Fan reactions to the release were mixed, with one blogger saying "the hardcore Beatles collectors who are trying to obtain everything will already have these. It aired on 9 February, the exact date of — and at the same time, and on the same network as — the original broadcast of the Beatles' first US television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show50 years earlier.
The special included performances of Beatles songs by current artists as well as by McCartney and Starr, archival footage, and interviews with the two surviving ex-Beatles carried out by David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Directed by Ron Howardit chronicled the Beatles' career during their touring years from tofrom their performances in Liverpool's the Cavern Club in to their final concert in San Francisco in A week later, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was reissued with new stereo mixes and unreleased material for the album's 50th anniversary.
The Beatles broke their own record for the album with the longest gap between topping the charts as Abbey Road hit the top spot 50 years after its original release. Additionally, a book also titled The Beatles: Get Back will release in Octoberahead of the documentary. In their initial incarnation as cheerful, wisecracking moptops, the Fab Four revolutionised the sound, style, and attitude of popular music and opened rock and roll's doors to a tidal wave of British rock acts.
Their initial impact would have been enough to establish the Beatles as one of their era's most influential cultural forces, but they didn't stop there. The band's increasingly sophisticated experimentation encompassed a variety of genres, including folk-rockcountrypsychedeliaand baroque popwithout sacrificing the effortless mass appeal of their early work.
In The Beatles as MusiciansWalter Everett describes Lennon and McCartney's contrasting motivations and approaches to composition: "McCartney may be said to have constantly developed — as a means to entertain — a focused musical talent with an ear for counterpoint and other aspects of craft in the demonstration of a universally agreed-upon common language that he did much to enrich.
Conversely, Lennon's mature music is best appreciated as the daring product of a largely unconscious, searching but undisciplined artistic sensibility. Ian MacDonald describes McCartney as "a natural melodist — a creator of tunes capable of existing apart from their harmony". His melody lines are characterised as primarily "vertical", employing wide, consonant intervals which express his "extrovert energy and optimism". Conversely, Lennon's "sedentary, ironic personality" is reflected in a "horizontal" approach featuring minimal, dissonant intervals and repetitive melodies which rely on their harmonic accompaniment for interest: "Basically a realist, he instinctively kept his melodies close to the rhythms and cadences of speech, colouring his lyrics with bluesy tone and harmony rather than creating tunes that made striking shapes of their own.
If there hadn't been Elvis, there would not have been the Beatles. The Beatles continued to absorb influences long after their initial success, often finding new musical and lyrical avenues by listening to their contemporaries, including Bob Dylanthe WhoFrank Zappathe Lovin' Spoonfulthe Byrds and the Beach Boyswhose album Pet Sounds amazed and inspired McCartney. Originating as a skiffle group, the Beatles quickly embraced s rock and roll and helped pioneer the Merseybeat genre,  and their repertoire ultimately expanded to include a broad variety of pop music.
Although the song "Yesterday" was not the first pop record to employ orchestral strings, it marked the group's first recorded use of classical music elements. Gould observes: "The more traditional sound of strings allowed for a fresh appreciation of their talent as composers by listeners who were otherwise allergic to the din of drums and electric guitars. The band's stylistic range expanded in another direction with their B-side "Rain", described by Martin Strong as "the first overtly psychedelic Beatles record".
Innovation was the most striking feature of their creative evolution, according to music historian and pianist Michael Campbell: "'A Day in the Life' encapsulates the art and achievement of the Beatles as well as any single track can. It highlights key features of their music: the sound imagination, the persistence of tuneful melody, and the close coordination between words and music.
It represents a new category of song — more sophisticated than pop There literally had never before been a song — classical or vernacular — that had blended so many disparate elements so imaginatively.
Author Dominic Pedler describes the way they crossed musical styles: "Far from moving sequentially from one genre to another as is sometimes conveniently suggested the group maintained in parallel their mastery of the traditional, catchy chart hit while simultaneously forging rock and dabbling with a wide range of peripheral influences from country to vaudeville.
One of these threads was their take on folk music, which would form such essential groundwork for their later collisions with Indian music and philosophy. George Martin 's close involvement in his role as producer made him one of the leading candidates for the informal title of the " fifth Beatle ".
Collaborating with Lennon and McCartney required Martin to adapt to their different approaches to songwriting and recording. MacDonald comments, "while [he] worked more naturally with the conventionally articulate McCartney, the challenge of catering to Lennon's intuitive approach generally spurred him to his more original arrangements, of which ' Being for the Benefit of Mr.
Compared with Paul's songs, all of which seemed to keep in some sort of touch with reality, John's had a psychedelic, almost mystical quality John's imagery is one of the best things about his work — 'tangerine trees', 'marmalade skies', 'cellophane flowers' On the other hand, I would be stupid to pretend that drugs didn't figure quite heavily in the Beatles' lives at that time Not only was I not into it myself, I couldn't see the need for it; and there's no doubt that, if I too had been on dope, Pepper would never have been the album it was.
Perhaps it was the combination of dope and no dope that worked, who knows? Harrison echoed Martin's description of his stabilising role: "I think we just grew through those years together, him as the straight man and us as the loonies; but he was always there for us to interpret our LP) — we used to be slightly avant-garde on certain days of the week, and he would be there as the anchor person, to communicate that through the engineers and on to the tape.
Making innovative use of technology while expanding the possibilities of recorded music, the Beatles urged experimentation by Martin and his recording engineers. Seeking ways to put chance occurrences to creative use, accidental guitar feedback, a resonating glass bottle, a tape loaded the wrong way round so that it played backwards — any of these might be incorporated into their music.
Along with innovative studio techniques such as sound effectsunconventional microphone placements, tape loops, double tracking and vari-speed recording, the Beatles augmented their songs with instruments that were unconventional in rock music at the time. These included string and brass ensembles as well as Indian instruments such as the sitar in "Norwegian Wood" and the swarmandal in "Strawberry Fields Forever". Former Rolling Stone associate editor Robert Greenfield compared the Beatles to Picassoas "artists who broke through the constraints of their time period to come up with something that was unique and original The Beatles' arrival in the US is credited with initiating the album era ;  the music historian Joel Whitburn says that LP sales soon "exploded and eventually outpaced the sales and releases of singles" in the music industry.
Their musical innovations and commercial success inspired musicians worldwide. According to Gould, the Beatles changed the way people listened to popular music and experienced its role in their lives. From what began as the Beatlemania fad, the group's popularity grew into what was seen as an embodiment of sociocultural movements of the decade. As icons of the s countercultureGould continues, they became a catalyst for bohemianism and activism in various social and political arenas, fuelling movements such as women's liberationgay liberation and environmentalism.
Other commentators such as Mikal Gilmore and Todd Leopold have traced the inception of their socio-cultural impact earlier, interpreting even the Beatlemania period, particularly on their first visit to the US, as a key moment in the development of generational awareness.
