"A funny thing happened to the Revolver album on its way to the U.S. marketplace in the spring and summer of 1966 — it somehow managed to lose three songs, all written and featuring lead vocals by John Lennon. In its U.S. incarnation, Revolver was downright strange — and unique. John Lennon's voice and songwriting have just two places on the album, thus making the U.S. version of Revolver the only Beatles album in creation in which George Harrison is featured more prominently as a singer and songwriter than John Lennon. (And that is not necessarily a complaint, but nevertheless it's an extraordinary detail for most Beatles fans that, had Capitol Records executives been thinking more clearly, might have been taken into account in mid-1966.) Thus, in raw math alone, the album is bizarre — though mere numbers ignore the fact that the two Lennon songs that are here still come off as astounding, amazing pieces of music today, never mind how they seemed in 1966, and were placed for maximum impact, at the end of each side. What was here was still a masterpiece (albeit a reduced one), and an odd curio from a time when the Beatles were getting much more serious about their music than their record label was prepared to be — a factor that would change once the money started rolling in and the press clips building up from Sgt. Pepper's in the year that followed, and the bandmembers started to throw their weight around where it also counted a great deal, with the company's management as well as the studio engineers." - AMG.
