Funny that it says the two best songs are Georges' LLL &...Savory truffle? I was expecting it to say LLL & WMGGW and it doesn't even mention R#9.

good point, toe-  to me, it's interesting to note that contemporaneous reviews of the WA were generally quite poor.

Always interesting to read reviews from back in the 60s - thanks for posting the link.
Sounds like the reviewer hasn't even listened to half the album. How could they not even mention Revolution 9 or WMGGW or Dear Prudence? And poor old Ringo gets his first solo songwriter credit and doesn't even get a name-check.

I've always liked Savoy Truffle.  Paul just about played "lead bass" on that one   ;)

You're welcome, Kevin.  He's got 250 more bass instructional videos for Beatles songs.

For example...
