Beatlefan #246 continues our look back at the beginning of the solo Beatle era, as our contributors and readers weigh in on their all-time favorite solo albums, and Kit O’Toole takes a look at the sometimes surprising solo favorites among Spotify listeners. Also, Brad Hundt and Tom Frangione parse the new “Gimme Some Truth” set and its “ultimate” mixes, Jude Southerland Kessler examines John Lennon’s solo ballads, and Wally Podrazik puts the spotlight on one of John’s least loved collections, “Some Time in New York City.” Other features in this issue include the conclusion of Al Sussman’s look at The Beatles’ remarkable afterlife and Kathy Urbanic’s examination of The Beatles and their musical heroes, Wally Podrazik on the Lennon “formula” The Beatles never got to try, and Bruce Spizer looking at the critical reaction 50 years ago to “Let It Be” film. Plus, of course, we have the latest news, media reports, and reviews of new books and recordings.
