The Mystery That Kicks Off The Beatles' Greatest Album

In August 1966, The Beatles unleashed an album that would forever change the course of pop music: Revolver. Its opening song – Taxman – literally counted in a bold new era. One of George Harrison’s three contributions to Revolver, Taxman also contains a mystery that has spurred a heated debate among Beatle fans: who is announcing the “1…2…3…4” count-in? Was it Paul McCartney? George Harrison? John Lennon? Or even Ringo Starr? We’ll investigate. And as a fair warning: you can’t unhear this.
