1966: The Beatles’ album Revolver goes to #1 on U.S. album charts and stays there for six weeks. Revolver is the seventh album by the band, released on 5 August 1966. The album showcases a number of new stylistic developments which will become more pronounced on later albums. Many of the tracks on Revolver are marked by an electric guitar-rock sound, in contrast with their previous, folk-rock inspired Rubber Soul. It reaches #1 on the U.K. chart for seven weeks.
