Product Description


Banged out in a hurry for the 1964 Christmas market, Beatles for Sale sometimes sounds it, loaded with ill-conceived covers and some of John Lennon's most self-loathing lyrics. On the other hand, the people doing the banging-out were the Beatles, whose instincts for what worked musically were so strong that they could basically do no wrong--any record that has "Baby's in Black", "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party" and the delectable "Eight Days a Week" on it is only "minor" in the most relative sense. And, though their voices had been frazzled a bit by constant touring, they revved them up for some joyous shouting, and indulged their fondness for American country in subtle, playful ways. --Douglas Wolk

5.0 out of 5 stars Very under-appreciated album of maturity July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
By the time that the Beatles recorded "Beatles For Sale", they were fed up. They had been constantly touring and they had just starred a feature film, and yet they were still under the demands of the record company for a new single every three months and a new album every six months. They could cope with this pressure for their previous two albums, but everyone has a breaking point, and so it's no surprise that it came right after the exhaustive "A Hard Day's Night", which they had filled with fourteen new originals as well as having made a movie. Having to follow that up would make any group, even the Beatles, falter slightly.
Critics and audiences alike have already noted the downsides to this pressure. Instead of giving us fourteen new originals like they did on "A Hard Day's Night", they "fill out" the album with covers of their favorite 50s artists. With the exception of particularly energetic performances of "Kansas City" and "Rock and Roll Music", these covers are stale and uninspired. They stick with the arrangement of the original recordings. (Indeed, their cover of "Words of Love" sounds so remarkably like Buddy Holly's original that some casual listeners may confuse the two!). It also must be noted that "Mr. Moonlight" is one of the Beatles most disliked tracks. So, it's no wonder that "Beatles For Sale" is one of their most disliked LP's.
Now, having said all that, this album is extraordinarily under-rated and under-appreciated. The pressure and stress had its benefits, too. John Lennon (and Paul, to be fair, but especially John) had been studying the weary songwriting of Bob Dylan and his strong use of lyrical value. The stress and pressure John was under gave him a perfect excuse to exercise his knowledge of this kind of songwriting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tired but still creative Beatles July 15 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
The Beatles were worn out from touring constantly when this album came out and the number of covers on it are kind of telling. Still vital to the Beatles collector though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than CD Dec 28 2012
By Seeker
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Once again this new vinyl mastering is to me superior to the CD. Again warmer and a little more dynamic worth the money to bring a little more life back into The Beatles.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good album Nov. 25 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
well, as I said before, I don't know what got into me, I just want all the beatles album again, I am almost there, this one is great as all the 2009 series. I love the package and books and just everything, I think I am getting them more for the package than the music, though of course the music is great, so, maybee I am just crazy a little, big smile!

By From the Musician's Pen TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I bought both the remastered stereo and mono box sets and am slowly comparing them, song by song, to the original 1987 CD releases. To read my other reviews, search the titles of other Beatles CDs.

The new pics and booklet and cool to see, but the paper cover will wear out eventually and won't be replaceable, like the old plastic CD covers were. The pictures have a different tinting compared to the original CD cover, and some older and some newer pictures are clearer to see. The new CD itself looks far cooler, with the Parlophone logo, etc. The original 1987 CDs were very "bare-bones" compared to these remastered releases.

However, it was easy to copy songs from the older CDs, to create my own Beatles mixed CDs. The new stereo CDs have a documentary, which prevents me from getting at the song tracks to copy them. While I hate people "stealing" this music for free, I have paid for my copies and feel I should be able to make copies for myself, especially since this sounds so much better than the 1987 version.

I had never realized that the 1987 CD was in mono until I did this comparison. I had thought that CD sounded good, but the remastering sounds so much better. The music is now louder, crisper, cleaner, punchier and clearer, etc. In creating new stereo mixes, instrumental parts are now panned left or right, usually keeping rhythm section together and lead parts in the opposite speaker. There is more bleeding of parts heard in the opposite speaker with reverb.

It sounds like the vocals were originally double-tracked, so one set of vocals is panned left or right (but it bleeds clearly to the opposite speaker with reverb) and the main vocal track is centered. Everything sounds great on the stereo CD.
