Deconstructing Help! (Plus Beatles For Sale)

Cottonwood: Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.

In late 1964, the Beatles begin to move from the early, heady days of Beatlemania into the beginnings of more mature influences – both musically and otherwise! In Deconstructing Help!, Scott will share the stories behind the making of Beatles for Sale and the “I Feel Fine”/”She’s A Woman” single. The presentation continues with a look at the making of Help!, diving deep into the songs from that film and album, including “Help!” “You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” and “Yesterday.” The presentation ends with the story of the Beatles’ groundbreaking Shea Stadium concert.

Scott Freiman combines his love of The Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver unique educational lectures about the creative process of The Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions. His multimedia presentations transport his audiences into Abbey Road Studio with anecdotes about The Beatles’ recording sessions, allowing fans to experience the evolution of The Beatles’ groundbreaking albums and songs.

Freiman’s lectures have entertained audiences of musicians and non-musicians alike, from pre-teenagers to octogenarians. Once you’ve attended one of Scott’s presentations, you’ll never listen to The Beatles or any other music the same way again!
