George Harrison Didn't See Much Difference Between 'Rubber Soul' and 'Revolver'

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

George Harrison didn’t see much difference between The Beatles‘ Rubber Soul and Revolver. He thought the group could’ve released them as Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.

George enjoyed making Rubber Soul and Revolver. The Beatles were experimenting in the recording studio more than ever, which was exciting. Their lyrics and musical direction were becoming more complex by the day.

In 1977, George told Crawdaddy (per George Harrison on George Harrison: Interviews and Encounters), “I liked when we got into ‘Rubber Soul,’ ‘Revolver’—each album had something good about it and progressed.”
In 1992, George told Guitar World that working on Rubber Soul and Revolver was like being “lost in the middle of it-not knowing a thing-and at the same time somehow knowing everything.”
