Chapter 75: White Rabbit

Psychedelic & blues rock

There was no truly satisfying way to cram The Beatles into this Anthology (even allowing them six slots). I included no songs from the White Album, but I did sneak in “I Want You,” one of my all-time Beatles favorites, a deranged blues epic of Lennon caterwauling and white noise. All of the bands in this chapter cook up a serotonin-adrenaline cocktail by taking the classic, reliable blues structure and stepping on the gas. The effect is not unlike swallowing the pill that makes you larger and the pill that makes you small at once...
