WHAT MR. KITE! TAUGHT THE BEATLES
No album is more colourful than Sgt. Pepper, and no song on it more so than ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!’. John Lennon’s declared intention in writing this song (as he told Beatles producer George Martin) was ‘to get across all the effects of a really colourful circus’. Professor Chris Collins (Head of the School of Music at Bangor University) shows how ‘Mr. Kite’ can open a window into the minds of the Beatles in 1967 as they devised and produced their most seminal album.
