The Beatles released their “Rubber Soul” LP on Dec. 3, 1965 . The album is regarded by fans and critics alike as one of the greatest albums in popular music history. In 2012, Rubber Soul was ranked number five on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”
Rubber Soul is the sixth studio album by the English rock group the Beatles. It was recorded in just over four weeks to make the Christmas market, and was released on 3 December 1965. It was produced by George Martin. Unlike the five albums that preceded it, Rubber Soul was recorded during a continuous period, whereas the group had previously recorded albums during breaks in between tour dates or other projects.
The album’s name comes from the term plastic soul which popular African American soul musicians coined to describe Mick Jagger, a white musician singing soul music. It was the second Beatles album – after the British version of A Hard Day’s Night – to contain only original material; the Beatles would record no more cover songs for their records until 1969, with the “Maggie Mae” excerpt appearing on Let It Be.
Would you agree that ‘Rubber Soul’ is one of the best records ever made?
Happy 52nd Birthday to “Rubber Soul”!!!
