Join hosts Lanea Stagg (author of The Recipe Records Series of rock'n'roll cookbooks) and Jude Southerland Kessler (author of The John Lennon Series of narrative biographies on the life of Lennon and The Beatles) as they talk with Beatles music and recording expert, Bruce Spizer, about the Parlophone versions of both "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!" In their last show together, Spizer discussed the American versions of the albums; now, he takes on the British versions with their added songs and their omission of the film instrumentals. Spizer will ultimately answer the question, "Which of the Parlophone film LPs was superior? Help!? Or A Hard Day's Night?" A lively debate indeed. Don't miss this great 40-minute show with Bruce Spizer, the author of The Beatles are Coming!, Beatles for Sale on Parlophone Records, The Beatles Swan Song, and many, many more respected works. And check out his website at http://www.beatles.net where his latest work on The White Album will be released in October 2018.
