What was George Harrison’s favourite Fab Four album of all time? 
“Rubber Soul was my favourite album,” he once revealed. “Even at that time, I think that it was the best one we made,” he added when reflecting on the iconic record in the ’90s.

While it could be easy to see this as the first moment Harrison really broke out, he loves the album for a different reason altogether: “The most important thing about it was that we were suddenly hearing sounds we weren’t able to hear before,” he wistfully recalled. “Also, we were being more influenced by other people’s music and everything was blossoming at that time—including us.”

Rubber Soul is often seen as one of the most experimental of The Beatles’ albums, reflecting a moment of unbridled creativity within the band, sparking a feeling that would ignite the rest of the Fab Four’s subsequent output. Arguably this was the moment that the Fab Four transcended from pop sensations and into musical icons.

The record was built upon a heavy dose of avant-garde rock and roll, unlike the previous efforts, this album was not a hit machine. To John Lennon, it was all rather simple: “We were just getting better, technically and musically, that’s all. Finally, we took over the studio. In the early days, we had to take what we were given—we didn’t know how you can get more bass. We were learning the technique on Rubber Soul. We were more precise about making the album, that’s all. And we took over the cover and everything.”

More so than any other, this album was about challenging not only themselves as musicians and creator, but a pushing the audience too. It is this aspect George would always push forward with all of his work.
