With The Beatles

This album is by far the best introduction to the early Beatles. It represents the vocal virtuosity of Lennon and McCartney as well as Harrison in both the Roll over Beethoven for Rock N Roll and then the lovely lilting closed harmony in Please, Please, Me. My personal remembrance of this LP (album) is getting this LP second after "The Second Album" I saw a great contrast between the two and loved it. "Roll over Beethoven" was not on the Capital release of this album but was on the "The Second Album" in those days. There is no one favorite Beatle album but I would put this as my favorite of the "early" days.

Please, Please Me

I never owned this LP because the Second Album and Hard Day's Night had many of the songs on this album for the US fans. This I believe was primarily released in UK and not here. The Capital Record company made a killing on US fans because they had less cuts on the LPs and were able to combine the dropped cuts into another LP altogether which appears to be what they did with "The Second Album" One way or another this LP belongs in any died in the wool Beatlemaniac's collection.

1962-1966 RED ALBUM

 

1967-1970 BLUE ALBUM

This double disc is what I refer to as the "Beatle Card Collecting Days" of each time period. This is a compilation of the HITS without saying it is. If you are interested in only having the music by the Beatles that were released on 45s in the States, this is a GOOD start for a great price.

THE WHITE ALBUM The original recording

This album represents the most eclectic abilities and tastes of all the fab four. You have the John's much controversial piece of Revolution #9, that most teenyboppers (author included) could hardly tolerate for lack of understanding. Paul's simplistic yet poignant Blackbird to George's Savoy Truffle and Ringo's percussive skiffle of Don't Pass Me By. My personal favorites on this LP are Julia and Blackbird.

Hard Day's Night

How I remember standing in line for blocks and blocks to see this movie that was in icky Black and White when Color was the accepted norm. Half the words I couldn't understand because of the very thick accents and the British quick wit. Now all grow'd up, its a classic in my books. My favorite song is Can't buy me Love.

TOP

HELP!

I enjoyed this movie and the music because it probably was my first encounter however distorted it may have been with the Eastern culture at the tender teenybopper age I was. I would say my favorite song is Hide your Love away.

Beatles For Sale

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the UK go this LP released while Capital released a compilation LP for the USA called Yesterday and Today. I have not seen that LP or The Second Album released in CD format as of yet. Songs contained on here are also contained on Beatles VI which I haven't seen released yet. I miss that LP not being released because that is the LP I got as a gift when I received my tickets to the Beatles from Brother Bill. My Favorite songs are: Words of Love and I'm a Loser.

Rubber Soul

Now begins the 1st in my Most Favorite Trilogy of the Beatles LPs. I have fond memories of listening to this LP during a most white winter in Wisconsin. I remember decorating my parents Xmas tree while playing this LP on the old Magnovox console stereo. Favorite songs are: Norwegian Wood and In my Life.

TOP

Revolver

The second in my trilogy, this LP I have remembrances chasing rainbows to this LP and having crushes on boys in high school whilst was still in Junior High AKA Middle School. On this LP, it is easier for me to say which are my least favorites rather than my favorites: Eleanor Rigby and Here, There, and Everywhere. Loved the rest though.

TOP

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

Lemonade ice cubes, summer rain, summer baby-sitting jobs and the Duck pond all place prominent in my memories of listening to this album. As a young teenager this album represented my summer transition from kids Junior high to the "adult" High School. I was a GROWN up now, earning my own money, and buying my own LPs. ALL THE SONGS are my FAVORITE on this LP...bar none.

TOP

Magical Mystery Tour

 

This was a very odd in a funny way movie attempt by the Beatles. This LP will be forever remembered by me as the "Paul is Dead" controversy. Paul's the Walrus you know. Favorite tunes are: Fool on the Hill, Strawberry Fields Forever and Baby your a Rich Man.

Abbey Road

For me this is the last LP the Beatles made together. I don't recognize Let It Be as the last LP nor did I purchase it simply because of how that LP did have the breaking up of the Beatles on it. Too sad. Abbey Road represents to me my transition from High School to the adult working world. Harrison's song Something was my first marriage wedding song. My least favorite song on this LP would be Golden Slumbers. To me this LP is the last LP the Beatles "came together" as a cohesive team for the purpose of making music.

Beatles Anthology 1

Beatles Anthology 2

Beatles Anthology3

I included these for the reason that I own number one. If you are new to the Beatles and really don't have any idea on how they developed and their history, these anthologies are produced from the three part TV series on the Beatles. I recommend these for historical purposes.
