The Beatles – Revolver (1966)

On a business trip to Liverpool early last summer, a good friend of mine took me to Shirley Street to show me the Eleanor Rigby statue, designed and made by the English entertainer Tommy Steele.

It’s a haunting tribute to the song from “Revolver’ and, although the character (originally known as Miss Daisy Hawkins) is fictitious, the idea of a lonely lady feeding the pigeons from a park bench is captured so lovingly here that you feel obliged to sit alongside her for a while when you visit.

We’re fortunate to possess an original vinyl pressing of the album in mono from 1966, courtesy of my wife’s elder sisters who were ardent Beatles fans back in the day.
