In the second of our four-part series “Better Know A White Album”, Newcastle singer-songwriter Mark Wells returns to the podcast (he was our third ever guest) to delve into side 2 of the classic Beatles record.
How does “Martha My Dear” presage Paul McCartney’s later solo work? Why does Mark hate “Don’t Pass Me By”? Which classical composer inspired “Blackbird”? Was Paul taking the piss in “Rocky Raccoon”? Why don’t we do it in the road?
All this and more in a celebratory and occasionally contentious podcast.
