Ned Rorem in New York - 1 December, 1973

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 47:

Replaying Sgt. Pepper provided such relief that I had an orgy of old Beatles records. Their way with their own tunes, their ingenuity, energy, wit, and contagiously magic charm, present the best gauge for judgment: the music holds up, along with those few huge thrills from childhood.
