180 Gram Single Jacket Remastered LP
How John Lennon's confessional song became the title for a silly James Bond spoof is still inexplicable. The funny thing is, it works both ways--as a young man's personal statement about learning to open up to others, and as the frantic theme for an exotic espionage chase comedy starring those loveable mop-tops (this time in COLOUR). Like A Hard Day's Night, only the first "side" of this album actually contains songs from the movie--the biggest hits being the eponymous cry for assistance and "Ticket to Ride". But part two has a few nice tunes as well, like "It's Only Love", "I've Just Seen a Face" and a little ditty called "Yesterday". And it's always fun when they do an all-out screamer like "Dizzy Miss Lizzy", which sounds like John's raucous answer to Paul's "Kansas City / Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey" vocal on Beatles for Sale. --Jim Emerson

Other reviewers have criticized the inclusion of George's "I Need You" and "You Like Me Too Much." My sentiments run counter to those expressed; I actually LIKE these pieces and feel they are vital contributions to this collection. George is being moved to the foreground more by 1965 and this collection shows it. It is a treat to hear and distinguish each voice singly and in unison. This collection has something for everyone.
The McCartney classics, "Yesterday" and "I've Just Seen a Face" show a daring on his part. These songs show a freer, more expressive style in lyrics and in sound. The songs are vibrant and radiate fresh originality.
Who couldn't love "Ticket to Ride" and "The Night Before?" Rousing and upbeat, these songs are calculated to delight all who listen.
In later years, John called 1965 his "fat Elvis" period. Depressed, by then experimenting with drugs and grappling with weight related issues, John admitted that the title song was a very telling statement.
It is hard for this reviewer to liken Elvis with John Lennon. John Lennon was much more talented and worlds better than Elvis ever was.Read more ›
The first half of the album (side 1) features the film's songs. On the whole they are good, catchy tunes, in particular the driving You're Gonna Lose That Girl and Another Girl. Another stand-out is You've Got To Hide Your Love Away which was obviously inspired by Mr. Zimmerman, featuring Lennon's Dylanesque nasal vocal and introspective lyrics. The title song is Lennon's most revealing songwriting to date, but in 1965 was considered just another fast rock and roll song. (Tina Turner's slow, anguished cover versions years later was probably how Lennon would've re-recorded it.)
Ticket To Ride is a tour-de-force of jangling guitars and commanding drums (arranged by Paul), but the stereo mix on the CD falls flat with the percussion segregated to one channel. I'd rather blast the original mono found on my vinyl "1962-66" compilation or the original Capitol 45 - that mix leaps out of the speakers like a lion.
Unfortunately, side 2 is a hodge-podge of second-rate compositions and cover versions. It's Only Love and I've Just Seen A Face have fine melodies, but little else. Tell Me What You See and You Like Me Too Much sound like B-sides that strayed onto a long-player (the flipside to Ticket To Ride, Yes It Is, is superior). However, Act Naturally is charming under Ringo's delivery and Dizzy Miss Lizzie rocks.
The spotlight, of course, shines on Yesterday, Paul's first major song. Until this point John dominated the Beatles' songwriting. He composed and sang the majority of the original songs on With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night and Beatles For Sale, plus many singles.Read more ›
