Sam and Jake are back talking about the first album in what Sam refers to as the Fab Four's middle period. With touring beginning to wind down and Beatlemania subsiding, The Beatles began to grow more comfortable with pushing themselves in their songwriting and experimenting with different elements within the recording studio...experimenting with more drugs too! Rubber Soul marks John Lennon's last major presence as the dominant force within the band, the official songwriting debut of Ringo Starr, and the documented beginnings of George Harrison's love of Indian culture. Strap yourselves in, The Beatles are taking things to the next level!
