John Lennon on the Rubber Soul Album

"We just were getting better technically and musically, that's all. We finally took over the studio. In the early days we had to take what we were given. We had to make it in two hours or whatever it was. And three takes was enough, and we didn't know about 'you can get more bass,' and we were learning the technique. With Rubber Soul, we were more precise about making the album--that's all. We took over the cover and everything.

"That was Paul's title, it was like 'Yer Blues,' I suppose, meaning English soul. 'Rubber Soul' is just a pun. There's no great mysterious meanings behind all of this. It was just four boys working out what to call their new album."
