The Big Beatles Sort Out

The Big Beatles Sort Out

By Garry Abbott
Welcome to The Big Beatles Sort Out a show in which I, author and musician Garry Abbott, attempt to finally decide my favourite Beatles recordings by scoring each and every one for lyrical content, musicality and production.

I am assisted in this venture by my brother and resident Beatles expert, Paul Abbott, with a deep knowledge of the Beatles and the wider context in which they operated.

Each episode we explore and score 5 songs drawn at random from the Beatles full recording catalogue.
