Revolver is a definitive turn for the boys, not my favorite collection of their songs however.  She Said She Said is good enough, not in my top 20 songs however.

I know how you feel, KE.  Several songs on Revolver put me off on the album too.  I just played Rubber Soul more frequently instead.  ;)
So which songs in "Revolver" put you off, I wonder ?

I love the overall sound of She Said. Everything meshes well. And Ringo's drums are excellent. He almost does more fills than normal bars. The guitar sound is great as well. Gritty and chunky. I didnt like a lot of the recorded sound of the electrics on previous albums, except for the 12 string. They often sounded a bit plunky and thin.

I think that George's Rickenbacker 360/12, with its light gauge strings, sounded a bit "plunky and thin."  But that's how it's supposed to sound...


The Beatles - You Can't Do That (2009 Mono Remaster)


The Beatles: "You Can't Do That" (George's part) Rickenbacker 360/12C63 & '67 Gibson Skylark amp




Early on, George's 6-string guitars included the Gretsch Duo-Jet, Country Gentleman, and Tennessean and, of course, his Rickenbacker 425.  The Gretsch guitars had that Chet Atkins country-twang sound provided by their Dynasonic (Duo-Jet), Filter'Tron (Country Gentleman) and Super'Tron (Tennessean) pickups.  The Rickenbacker 425 is a single-pickup solid body guitar which sounded a bit thin in comparison to his Gretsch guitars.

George's Epiphone Casino sounded very rich in this live performance of Nowhere Man...

That's a good example.  Actually the Rubber Soul version of Nowhere Man I thought the lead guitar sounded good too. I don't want to derail the thread so won't go into this any more here. I'll find the thread on their guitars and sounds.

A slight digression is OK.  Discussion is encouraged around here.

John and George played Stratocasters on the Rubber Soul recording (according to Beatle Gear by Andy Babiuk).  They played the solo in unison...

That's interesting and impressive. I always assumed it was George double tracked. It's a nice guitar part too. It makes sense they were using strats on it. Definitely gives that dry, rockier sound.

Maybe someone with the Lewisohn or Babluk book could tell us what that guitar amp combo was.

In terms of my thin and plunky comment I would suggest songs such as Don't Bother Me as an example of what I mean. I appreciate it's not as simple as Pre-Revolver bad; Revolver and after good. There was some nice guitar sounds on all the Beatles records. And it varies within albums. As has been pointed out the strats on Nowhere Man sound very good. I'm less enamoured of the guitar on What Goes On. Although that was no doubt an intentional sound to get that Rockabilly Carl Perkins feel.

It could also be the plunky sound I'm thinking of is George's playing on some tracks too. He did sound sometimes like he was snapping the strings back against the fretboard on some parts.

:-)

I also like the intro to Every Little Thing guitar tone

I don't agree with the poster who said it was all tinny pre the middle period , some of johns tones were fantastic, listen to You Can't Do That

That's John playing his Rickenbacker 325/12, Kev...





It sounds very different than George's 360/12.

So which songs in "Revolver" put you off, I wonder ?

At 16, I wasn't quite ready for psychedelic music, Snoopy.  Tomorrow Never Knows, Love You Too and I Want To Tell You frightened me a bit.  I liked the love songs like Here, There and Everywhere, Got to Get You into My Life, and, although it was a sad song, For No One.  I also liked Eleanor Rigby with its string quartet.
