You say it's your birthday

40 years ago the Beatles released a self-titled double LP. Cover art minimalism and musical maximalism, it is revered as a fabulous musical journey, but also as the beginning of the end for the greatest band of the 20th century. At the time it was the just the next amazing step in the astonishing evolution of a Liverpudlian rock 'n' roll band. The excellent NPR series All Songs Considered has a great look back at the album in the most recent edition of their podcast. Good night, sleep tight.
