 Rubber Soul (Group)'s Composition


The Beatles at a press conference during their August 1965 North American tour, two months before the start of theRubber Soulsessions

Rubber Soulalso saw the band expanding rock and roll's instrumental resources, most notably on " Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) " through George Harrison 's use of the Indian sitar . Having been introduced to the instrument on the set of the band's 1965 filmHelp!, Harrison's interest was fuelled by fellow Indian music fans Roger McGuinn and David Crosby of the Byrds, partway through the Beatles' August 1965 US tour.

Rubber Soulsound.Author Andrew Grant Jackson describesRubber Soulas a "synthesis of folk, rock, soul, baroque, proto-psychedelia, and the sitar".According toThe Encyclopedia of Country Music, building on the band's 1964 track " I Don't Want to Spoil the Party ", the album can be seen in retrospect as an early example of country rock , anticipating the Byrds'Sweetheart of the Rodeoalbum.

.[citation needed]In the main guitar riff to " If I Needed Someone ", the Beatles returned the compliment paid to them earlier in 1965 by the Byrds, whose jangly guitar-based sound McGuinn had sourced from Harrison's playing the previous year.For the country -styled " What Goes On ", Starr received his first songwriting credit (as Richard Starkey), as a co-composer with Lennon and McCartney.


"took its narrative cues more from folk crossovers such as Bob Dylan and the Byrds than from the Beatles' pop cohorts".John Lennon was encouraged to address wider-ranging issues than before through Dylan's influence, and also after a discussion with BBC journalist Kenneth Allsop about whether, as in Lennon's 1965 bookA Spaniard in the Works, his lyrics were conceived as merely "another form of nonsense rhyming".

and songs like "I'm Looking Through You", " You Won't See Me " and "Girl" express more emotionally complex, bitter and downbeat portrayals of romance. Lennon's "In My Life" depicts nostalgic reverie for younger days, while " The Word " looks at love as an abstract term, arguably the first time a Lennon–McCartney song strayed from their usual 'boy/girl' notion of romantic love. Songs such as " Nowhere Man " and Harrison's "Think for Yourself" explored subject matter that had nothing to do with romance at all.[citation needed]

Martin later describedRubber Soulas "the first album to present a new, growing Beatles to the world",adding: "For the first time we began to think of albums as art on their own, as complete entities."This was the final Beatle album that recording engineer Norman Smith worked on before he was promoted by EMI to record producer.

A Mason & Hamlin pump organ or harmonium . Along with sitar , fuzz bass and varispeed -treated piano, harmonium was one of the unusual sounds the band used for the first time during theRubber Soulsessions.

Harrison used a Fender Stratocaster for the first time, most notably in his lead guitar part on "Nowhere Man".The variety in guitar tones throughout the album was also aided by Harrison and Lennon's use of capos , particularly in the high-register parts on "If I Needed Someone" and "Girl".

sessions, but issued separately on a non-album single.To mimic the sound of a harpsichord on "In My Life", after Lennon had suggested he play something "like Bach", Martin recorded the piano solo with the tape running at half-speed. When played back at normal speed during the mixdown, the sped-up sound gave the illusion of a harpsichord.

 Rubber Soul (Group)'s North American format

Yesterday and Today. The four songs – "Drive My Car", "Nowhere Man", "What Goes On" and "If I Needed Someone" – were replaced with two tracks that had appeared on the UKHelp!album, but not its US counterpart: " I've Just Seen a Face " and " It's Only Love ".The total time was 28:55, nearly seven minutes shorter than the British version.

Author Jonathan Gould writes that the omission of songs such as "Drive My Car" provided a "misleading idea" of the Beatles' musical direction and "turned the album title into an even more obscure joke", since the result was the band's least soul- or R&B-influenced album up to this point.The stereo mixes used by Capitol contained two false starts at the beginning of "I'm Looking Through You",while "The Word" also differed from the UK version due to the double-tracking of Lennon's lead vocal, the addition of an extra falsetto harmony and the panning treatment given to one of the percussion parts over the song's instrumental break.

who recalled that his inspiration was the album's title: "If you tap into a rubber tree then you get a sort of globule, so I started thinking of creating a shape that represented that, starting narrow and filling out."The rounded letters used on the sleeve established a style that became ubiquitous in psychedelic designsand, according toThe Guardian, "a staple of poster art for the flower power generation".

 Rubber Soul (Group)'s Release

's show business reporter as marking a new record for pre-release orders for an LP.In the United States,Rubber Soulwas the group's tenth albumand their first to consist entirely of original songs.The release took place there on 6 December.

In addition to the two songs from the new single, the group played theRubber Soultracks "If I Needed Someone" and "Nowhere Man" throughout the tour.Exhausted from five years of almost non-stop touring, recording and film work, the band members subsequently took a three-month break during the first part of 1966, using this time to explore new directions that would inform their subsequent work, beginning with the albumRevolver.

The Beatles performed at the Liverpool Empire during their UK tour in support ofRubber Soul. The shows there marked the group's final concerts in their former hometown.

where it remained for eight weeks in total.On the national chart compiled byMelody Maker,Rubber Soulentered at number 1 and held the position for thirteen weeks; it remained in the top ten until mid July 1966.

and were cited byBillboardmagazine as evidence of a new market trend in the US, whereby pop albums started to match the numbers of singles sold.The album was number 1 for six weeks in total; it remained in the top twenty until the start of July, before leaving the top-200 listings in mid December.

In 2013, after the British Phonographic Industry altered its sales award protocol, the album was certified Platinum based on UK sales since 1994.

 Rubber Soul (Group)'s Critical reception

Contemporary reviewsedit

Newsweek's reviewer lauded the Beatles as "the Bards of Pop",saying that the album's combination of "gospel, country, baroque counterpoint and even French popular ballads" lent the band a unique style in which their songs were "as brilliantly original as any written today".LikeNewsweek,The New York Timeshad belittled the group when they first performed in America in February 1964, but following the release ofRubber Soul, according to author Bob Spitz , entertainment critic Jack Gould offered a "glowing tribute" in the newspaper's Sunday magazine.

By contrast, a week later, Richard Green wrote in the same magazine that most of the album "if recorded by anyonebutthe Beatles, would not be worthy of release", with many of the tracks devoid of "the old Beatles excitement and compulsiveness". Green acknowledged that his was an unpopular opinion, before concluding: "Judging LPs strictly on their merits, recent albums from Manfred Mann, the Beach Boys and Jerry Lee Lewis rank high aboveRubber Soul."

Author Steve Turner also highlights the comments made by theMelody MakerandRecord Mirrorreviewers, who were typically aged over 30, as indicative of how UK pop journalists lacked "the critical vocabulary" and "the broad musical perspective" to recognise or engage with progressive music.Turner adds thatRubber Soul"may have perplexed the old guard of entertainment correspondents, but it was a beacon for fledgling rock critics (as they would soon be called)".

had "become a standard phrase used to describe a creation of exceptional excellence in the field of music", such that several highly regarded releases had since earned the description "a'Rubber Soulin its field'".Writing inEsquirein 1967, Robert Christgau called it "an album that for innovation, tightness, and lyrical intelligence was about twice as good as anything they or anyone else (except maybe the Stones) had done previously".He later wrote: "Rubber Soulsmashed a lot of alienation. Without reneging on the group's masscult appeal, it reached into private lives and made hundreds of thousands of secretly lonely people feel as if someone out there shared their brightest insights and most depressing discoveries … Psychedelia starts here."

Scott Plagenhoef of Pitchfork Media describes the album as "the most important artistic leap in the Beatles' career – the signpost that signaled a shift away from Beatlemania and the heavy demands of teen pop, toward more introspective, adult subject matter".Writing inPaste, Mark Kemp says that the influence of Dylan and the Byrds seems overt at times but the album marks the start of the Beatles' peak in creativity and, in the context of 1965, presented "an unprecedented synthesis of elements from folk-rock and beyond".

as having been "a good 18 months ahead of its time" and "the first album of the rock era thatsoundedlike an album".Also writing in December 2015, inRolling Stone, Rob Sheffield especially admired the singing and the modern qualities of the female characters depicted in the lyrics. He said that the album was "way ahead of what anyone had done before" and, given the short period in which they had to record, he called it the Beatles' "accidental masterpiece".Conversely, Jon Friedman ofEsquirefinds the work vastly overrated, with only the Lennon-dominated songs "Norwegian Wood", "Nowhere Man", "In My Life" and "Girl" worthy of praise, and he dismisses it as "dull" and "the Beatles' most inconsequential album".Although he considers that McCartney "comes off third-string" to Lennon and Harrison, Plagenhoef defends the album's subtle mood; highlighting the influence of cannabis on the Beatles throughout 1965, he writes: "With its patient pace and languid tones,Rubber Soulis an altogether much more mellow record than anything the Beatles had done before, or would do again. It's a fitting product from a quartet just beginning to explore their inner selves on record."In his review for Rough Guides , Chris Ingham highlights the musical arrangements, three-part harmonies and judicious use of new sounds, in addition to the band's improved musicianship and songwriting. He says thatRubber Soulusually trails the Beatles' next four albums in critics' assessments of their work, yet "it's undoubtedly their pre-acid, pre-antagonism masterpiece: beat music as high art".

 Rubber Soul (Group)'s Influence and legacy

Development of popular musicedit

as well as Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones , who issued their first album of all-original material,Aftermath, in April 1966.In addition to citing it as the precedent for early experimental works by bands including Love and Jefferson Airplane , James Decker writes thatRubber Soulpresented "a variety of techniques hitherto unexplored in popular music" while encouraging listeners "to be cognizant of more flexible dimensions of pop music and todesireandexpectthem as well".Writing in 1968, Gene Sculatti ofJazz & Popdescribed it as "the necessary prototype that no major rock group has been able to ignore", as well as "the definitive 'rock as art' album, revolutionary in that it was a completely successful creative endeavor integrating with precision all aspects of the creative (rock) process".

cut the story of pop music in half – we're all living in the future this album invented. Now as then, every pop artist wants to make aRubber Soulof their own.
– Rob Sheffield , December 2015

, as the inspiration for many progressive rock bands of the early 1970s.Citing a quantitative study of tempos in music from the era, he also identifiesRubber Soulas a work that was "made more to be thought about than danced to", and an album that "began a far-reaching trend" in its slowing-down of the tempos typically used in pop and rock music.

as the LP that "broke everything open", in that "It crossed music into a whole new dimension and was responsible for kicking off the sixties rock era."Andrew Loog Oldham has described it as "the album that changed the musical world we lived in then to the one we still live in today".While recognising the album as a key work in the development of pop music towards progressive rock, author Bill Martin identifies its release as a "turning point", in that for the first time "thealbumrather than the song became the basic unit of artistic production."

Appearances on best-album lists and further recognitionedit

(number 5),was amongTimemagazine's selection of the "All-Time 100 Albums",and was favoured overRevolverin Chris Smith's book101 Albums That Changed Popular Music.In 2012,Rolling Stoneagain placedRubber Soulat number 5 on the magazine's revised list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".It also appeared in the same publication's 2014 list of the "40 Most Groundbreaking Albums of All Time", where the editors concluded: "You can say this represents 'maturity,' call it 'art' or credit it for moving rock away from singles to album-length statements – but regardlessRubber Soulaccelerated popular music's creative arms race, driving competitors like the Stones, the Beach Boys and Dylan to dismantle expectations and create new ones."

The album has been the subject of multi-artist tribute albums such asThis Bird Has FlownandRubber Folk.

 Rubber Soul (Group)'s Compact disc reissues

Help!album,Rubber Soulfeatured a contemporary stereo digital remix of the album prepared by George Martin. Martin expressed concern to EMI over the original 1965 stereo remix, claiming it sounded "very woolly, and not at all what I thought should be a good issue". He went back to the original four-tracks tapes and remixed them for stereo.

The Capitol version was relaunched twice, first in 2006, for theCapitol Albums, Volume 2box set, using original mixes of the Capitol 60's album, and in 2014, individually and on the boxThe U.S. Albums. This last release used mixes from 2009 remasters, except on "Michelle" (mono), "The Word" (stereo) and "I'm Looking Through You" (stereo), both using the original mix from the original Capitol album, because these mixes are different from the UK versions.
