The Beatles Revolver

Revolver is The Beatles' seventh album, released on August 5, 1966. The album showcased a number of new stylistic developments which would become more pronounced on later albums. Many of the tracks on Revolver are marked by an electric guitar-rock sound, in contrast with their previous, folk-rock inspired Rubber Soul. It reached #1 in the UK chart for 7 weeks and #1 on the U.S. chart for 6 weeks.

Revolver was released before the Beatles stopped touring, and some people were disappointed that, during that tour, the Beatles did not perform songs from that album.
