I don’t understand this Music question and need help to study.
This assignment contains two sections. The first one is:
Beatles scholar Wilfrid Mellers writes, “Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road are the three great milestones in the Beatles’ career: Revolver because it was a breakthrough from the world of pop into a world that hasn’t yet been categorized: Sgt. Pepper because it’s the most comprehensively realized Beatle testament; Abbey Road because it’s their most dangerous adventure”.
In your own words, what do you believe Prof. Mellers is trying to say in these descriptions? Do you agree or disagree with his findings? You must write at least 200 words to cover the topic briefly but thoroughly.
The second one:
In light of the current “Black Lives Matter” movement. Please describe the influence of African-American musical artists and styles on the music of the Beatles. How did this manifest in their early musical development? Did the Beatles ever tour or work with African-American musicians?
