Sam and Jake's Beatles podcast miniseries continues with a look at the Fab Four's fourth album, Beatles for Sale! Often lost in the shuffle, Beatles for Sale was the product of a band exhausted after two years of nonstop recording, touring, and making public appearances. While the early influences of Bob Dylan on John Lennon are felt, as well as the band's love of folk rock and western music, Sam and Jake look at the album as a bit of a step back for the band. Listen as the duo go track by track citing where they feel the album succeeds and where it falters.
