I have reviewed the entire UK original Beatle catalog with the purpose of providing readers with a practical review of each recording. Please, Please Me the group's 1st official L.P. has a raw, fresh, and spontaneous sound, but most important it was very unique and a very challenging sound to all listeners. From the famous count of 1,2,3,4...which introduces I Saw Her Standing There to Twist & Shouts, the strength, the rhythm, the beat, the vocals and the delivery of the Beatles was very different from what was being heard at the time. This album has more to do with a collection item and pop classic album than with the contemporary music. Its value is found in that it was composed and recorded before many of the 60's landmark music: "Satisfaction", "You Really Got Me", "Mr. Tambourine Man", "My Generation", or "Good Vibrations". Recorded all in one day, Lennon and Mc Cartney presented producer George Martin with their best songs so far, and took a test on each take to have then in or out of the album. I remember that original version of Please, Please Me ("a la Roy Orbison") almost was excluded from the album as Mr. Martin preferred the "fab four" to do a cover version of "How Do You Do It". Fortunately, after speeding up the tempo of Please, Please Me they went for the John and Paul composition. In conclusion, the album witnesses the Beatles strength and effort to record their material with George Martin who gave them their first opportunity. For the young generation interested in finding out where the 60's music comes from and how did it begin, this album is a great place to start. To compare play early Beach Boys stuff, Dylan's first LP, or any of the pioneers of Rock & Roll (C.Read more ›

Please Please Me was the magnificent beginning to the recording career of possibly the greatest, and certainly the most culturally important, rock n' roll band of all time. Released in 1963, just as Lennon and McCartney were hitting their strides as songwriters, the album includes several early classic Beatles compositions, as well as a few covers that seemed to be the idea of a not quite convinced George Martin. The album rarely falters, from the thrilling opening (1-2-3-4) sung by Paul on I Saw Her Standing There through to John's equally exciting rendering of Twist & Shout, the best Beatles cover ever. In between are the band's first two singles - Love Me Do and the much better Please Please Me - and great performances on Misery, Ask Me Why, P.S. I Love You, There's a Place, and especially Do You Want to Know A Secret? The weakest tracks are the other covers - Anna, Chains, Boys, A Taste of Honey, and Baby It's You - though most are redeemed by stellar vocals by Lennon and McCartney. The Beatles were about to become huge, and not necessarily for all the right reasons, but Please Please Me offered enough evidence that the band's popularity would not be based on hype alone. John and Paul were already great vocalists and would soon develop into two of the greatest writers in the history of rock n' roll. Those who listened to this album back in 1963 heard something fresh that had been missing from music for a long while. In particular they heard a band that was fronted by two singers as good as Elvis, two writers as good as Chuck Berry, and that played as if it was having a great time playing.

The album sounds amazing with the remastered audio. Finally, the music is being played on what it was designed to be on!

The Beatles cover their favourite artists and give the world their first taste of the Lennon-McCartney magic. Interestingly, their songs are credited to "McCartney-Lennon" before John found out what Paul had done and straightened out the credit to be the alphabetical "Lennon-McCartney" on all the following albums.

The Beatles are a group like no other. They matured as a group from teen pop to progressive and they took a large part of a generation with them on the ride. Nor is their influence limited just to that generation, as the echoes of their greatness still resound today. "Please Please Me" is the album that took them from obscurity to a UK sensation, and paved the way for their global success. Originally released on March 22nd, 1963, in Mono (April 26, 1963 for the stereo version), the album featured 14 tracks, 10 of which were recorded on February 11th, and the remaining four were recorded at other times. The version I am reviewing is the digitally remastered version of the stereo release of the album

The album opens with "I Saw Her Standing There", one of eight McCartney-Lennon pieces on the album. Paul is the lead vocalist, and the song is from take 1 of the session on February 11th, while the count-in from take 9. George Martin wanted to capture a life feeling, and it sets the tone for the entire album. Next is "Misery" (McCartney-Lennon) with Paul and John sharing the vocals. This song was written for Helen Shapiro, but she turned it down, it was the first song to be covered by another artist as Kenny Lynch recorded it just days after The Beatles recorded it, and released it as a single before "Please Please Me" was released. This song is the first to have George Martin play on it as he added the piano. "Anna (Go To Him)" (Arthur Alexander) is next and features John on vocals, it is the first of the non McCartney-Lennon compositions on the album.

Up next is "Chains" (Gerry Goffin, Carole King) is the first of two songs to feature George Harrison on vocals. "Boys" (Luther Dixon, Wes Farrell) is the only song to feature Ringo on lead vocals.
