1 stars As I was looking for the Who in proto-prog section, I realised Beatles was added... I checked out the discography whether only their most prog-related albums are added or not... Alas! From their debut on, until Revolver (or let's be generous, up until Rubber Soul) no album has the slightest relation to what wee come to know as "prog" today... This album may only serve as a historical document about a worldwide giant, and for only people who are interested... Newbies in investigating "roots of prog" (and nevertheless I am one, I know about only a couple of bands featured in proto-prog section) must definitely start with Sgt. Pepper, Revolver, Magical Mystery Tour or Yellow Submarine, more definitive efforts towards the concept. Please note that my rating is "prog-wise"... Otherwise this album may rank among the classics of rock'n'roll and British psychedelia... Not even for the fans!
