Released in early December, its eight original compositions stood out, demonstrating the growing Show Ending - The Beatles - Live From Liverpool - Beatlemania 1963 (CD) of the Lennon—McCartney songwriting partnership. I was pretty stunned for a month or two.
Harrison's use of psychedelic drugs encouraged his path to meditation and Hinduism. He commented: "For me, it was like a flash.
The first time I had acidit just opened up something in my head that was inside of me, and I realized a lot of things. I didn't learn them because I already knew them, but that happened to be the key that opened the door to reveal them. From the moment I had that, I wanted to have it all the time — these thoughts about the yogis and the Himalayas, and Ravi 's music. In July, the Beatles' second film, Help! Described as "mainly a relentless spoof of Bond ",  it inspired a mixed response among both reviewers and the band.
McCartney said: " Help! It was fun, but basically, as an idea for a film, it was a bit wrong. The Help! The group's third US tour opened with a performance before a world-record crowd of 55, at New York's Shea Stadium on 15 August — "perhaps the most famous of all Beatles' concerts", in Lewisohn's description.
At a show in Atlanta, the Beatles gave one of the first live performances ever to make use of a foldback system of on-stage monitor speakers. In mid-October, the Beatles entered the recording studio; for the first time when making an album, they had an extended period without other major commitments. Now we were really beginning to think about albums as a bit of art on their own.
And because they were writing different material, we were playing differently. As the lyrics grew more artful, fans began to study them for deeper meaning. While some of Rubber Soul ' s songs were the product of Lennon and McCartney's collaborative songwriting,  the album also included distinct compositions from each,  though they continued to share official credit.
Capitol Records, from December when it began issuing Beatles recordings for the US market, exercised complete control over format,  compiling distinct US albums from the band's recordings and issuing songs of their choosing as singles. According to Beatles biographer Bill Harryit has been incorrectly suggested that this was meant as a satirical response to the way Capitol had "butchered" the US versions of the band's albums.
During a tour of the Philippines the month after the Yesterday and Today furore, the Beatles unintentionally snubbed the nation's first lady, Imelda Marcoswho had expected them to attend a breakfast reception at the Presidential Palace. The resulting riots endangered the group and they escaped the country with difficulty. Almost as soon as they returned home, the Beatles faced a fierce backlash from US religious and social conservatives as well as the Ku Klux Klan over a comment Lennon had made in a March interview with British reporter Maureen Cleave.
I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I will be proved right Jesus was alright but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me. At a press conference, Lennon pointed out, "If I'd said television was more popular than Jesus, I might have got away with it. Released in August, a week before the Beatles' final tour, Revolver marked another artistic step forward for the group. Its creation involved eight tape decks distributed about the EMI building, each staffed by an engineer or band member, who randomly varied the movement of a tape loop while Martin created a composite recording by sampling the incoming data.
As preparations were made for a tour of the US, the Beatles knew that their music would hardly be heard. Having originally used Vox AC30 amplifiers, they later acquired more powerful watt amplifiers, specially designed by Vox for them as they moved into larger venues inbut these were still inadequate.
Struggling to compete with the volume of sound generated by screaming fans, the band had grown increasingly bored with the routine of performing live. The band performed none of their new songs on the tour.
Freed from the burden of touring, the Beatles embraced an increasingly experimental approach as they recorded Sgt. Pepper had to be different. We had microphones right down in the bells of brass instruments and headphones turned into microphones attached to violins. We used giant primitive oscillators to vary the speed of instruments and vocals and we had tapes chopped to pieces and stuck together upside down and the wrong way around.
Pepper LP followed with a rush-release in May. The overwhelming consensus is that the Beatles had created a popular masterpiece: a rich, sustained, and overflowing work of collaborative genius whose bold ambition and startling originality dramatically enlarged the possibilities and raised the expectations of what the experience of listening to popular music on record could be.
On the basis of this perception, Sgt. Pepper became the catalyst for an explosion of mass enthusiasm for album-formatted rock that would revolutionise both the aesthetics and the economics of the record business in ways that far outstripped the earlier pop explosions triggered by the Elvis phenomenon of and the Beatlemania phenomenon of In the wake of Sgt.
Pepperthe underground and mainstream press widely publicised the Beatles as leaders of youth culture, as well as Show Ending - The Beatles - Live From Liverpool - Beatlemania 1963 (CD) revolutionaries".

The next day, they travelled to Bangor for his Transcendental Meditation retreat. On 27 August, their manager's assistant, Peter Brown, phoned to inform them that Epstein had died.
I knew that we were in trouble then. I didn't really have any misconceptions about our ability to do anything other than play music, and I was scared.
I thought, 'We've fuckin' had it now. I don't think it could have been worse if they had heard that their own fathers had dropped dead. Pepper however, in line with the band's wishes, the packaging reinforced the idea that the release was a film soundtrack rather than a follow-up to Sgt. Magical Mystery Tour first aired on Boxing Day to an audience of approximately 15 million. The group were less involved with Yellow Submarinewhich only featured the band appearing as themselves for a short live-action segment.

From late May to mid-Octoberthe group recorded what became The Beatlesa double LP commonly known as "the White Album" for its virtually featureless cover. With the record, the band executed a wider range of musical styles  and broke with their recent tradition of incorporating several musical styles in one song by keeping each piece of music consistently faithful to a select genre.
Pepper had. The project's impetus came from an idea Martin attributes to McCartney, who suggested they "record an album of new material and rehearse it, then perform it before a live audience for the very first time — on record and on film". It was a time when relations between the Beatles were at their lowest ebb. Upon returning, he threatened to leave the band unless they "abandon[ed] all talk of live performance" and instead focused on finishing a new album, initially titled Get Backusing songs recorded for the TV special.

New strains developed between the band members regarding the appointment of a financial adviser, the need for which had become evident without Epstein to manage business affairs. McCartney refused to sign the management contract with Klein, but he was out-voted by the other Beatles. Martin stated that he was surprised when McCartney asked him to produce another album, as the Get Back sessions had been "a miserable experience" and he had "thought it was the end of the road for all of us".
