I have just been watching two videos featuring a fabulous collection of photos from the Sgt Pepper launch party and All You Need Is Love press shoot, and the Beatles appear happy and relaxed, especially John. It made me wonder if this particular time period represents the last time the Beatles were reasonably content with being together as a band. Or was it earlier? Rubber Soul/Revolver era could be said to represent them at their most musically unified at least, whilst still pushing boundaries, although Paul did walk out on a session. I read that John had a fondness for 1964, so it could be that A Hard Day's Night was the last time all four were happy being together as the Beatles. I'm still inclined to think it was 1967. What do people think? Gotta love 13:20 Paul holding Ringo's hand.
