I don't trust perfection and I'm very sceptical about relevance and influence!

David Bowie is said to have influenced millions but if Woody Guthrie had only influenced Bob Dylan, he'd be the more influential artist by a country mile.
It's not how many got influenced, it's 'who' got influenced.

My favourite Dylan LP is 'Nashville Skyline' but it has more flaws in it than the Empire State.

Yes, you got a point there. Maybe my list should be seen just as the most representative albums of the music I like.

I'm not a fan of country music, but Nashville Skyline is an exception; I really like that album.

But the word "perfection", in the way I used it, shouldn't be taken as a technical issue. Actually I love 60's rock music in part because of all those little mistakes in the recordings. They give certain uncontrolled randomness that makes the music more natural and unrepeatable.

Thanks Bobber, that's great.

Coincidentally I was on another site talking about the Cow Palace show in San Francisico in 1965. It was a pretty frantic affair even by Beatle standards. Some guy got up on stage and knocked off John's cap and then threw himself legs first into the crowd. In photos the stage looks like a battle area with stuff all over it and of course there are girls being handed up to be evacuated - but they really look to be in a bad way.

Then I noticed that as you say the Beatles had long a break after this concert which was the last of the tour. Maybe they were already thinking of giving up touring. It wouldn't be surprising! Six weeks would be an eternity in those days for the Beatles to be out of the public eye.

From Wogblog

 Mark Lewisohn about the upcoming volumes
Renowned Beatles author Mark Lewisohn was a guest at Beatleweek in Liverpool this year, and had a session called "Ask Mark", a revival from his Beatle Week sessions in the eighties. Here, he discussed not only volume one, "Tune in" of his Beatles biography trilogy in the making, but also revealed a bit about the two upcoming volumes.

As a matter of fact, the first question posed was "How's book two coming along?". Lewisohn is still thinking that volume two will come out in 2020. He is still researching, and writing hasn't started. There is already enough material to write a substantial volume two, which he could start writing right away, but he hasn't yet turned every stone, and wants to be absolutely correct before he starts the writing process.  And he says that he is discovering something new almost on a daily basis, so it does indeed look as if there's still a lot of unturned stones. Volume two will be completely different from what he first imagined it would be, and he still has no title of volumes two and three.

One of the interesting questions put to Lewisohn at the very end of the Q&A session was why the Beatles took such a long break exactly 50 years ago. Returning from their American tour on September 1st, 1965, collectively The Beatles did nothing for six weeks, which did make the creative process of writing and recording "Rubber Soul" in time for the Christmas market a difficult and rushed one. Lewisohn had no firm answer to this, but let it be known that the times when they went out of the public eye were as interesting as the rest of their story. This is one of the reasons why further research is needed before the writing of volume two can commence.

New material, stories and people from the period covered in volume one, "Tune In" has turned up after it's publication, but will not be included in the upcoming paperback edition of that book. Lewisohn says that it will be used in some way, but is still not sure how and when.

The people whose lives we have been following in "Tune in" will also be featured in the upcoming volumes. We are talking about the people who were left behind, people like Allan Williams, Bob Wooler, Rory Storm, Pete and Mona Best etc. As their lives were still influenced by the Beatles and their success, we will get to see what happened to them along the way.

Fortunately, someone recorded the Q&A session and put it up on YouTube:
