Product Description

Product Description

This is the one that turned the world upside-down. Released as its creators evolved from pop group to phenomenon, With The Beatles both affirmed promise and proclaimed genius. A slew of memorable Lennon/McCartney compositions embraced pop at its most multi-faceted, robust, melancholic, excited, and wistful. Their grasp of melody and harmony startled, yet for every unusual chord sequence employed, the Beatles' vigor and sense of purpose remained true. Influences and mentors were acknowledged by a handful of cover versions, but the strength of the album lies in the group's own creations. With The Beatles freed artists to record their own material, and the course of pop was irrevocably changed. EMI. 2005.

They still had plenty of covers to fill out the running time, but the Lennon-McCartney writing team was gathering steam and beginning to knock out pop classics as if they were pulling them out of thin air. "All My Loving" and "I Wanna Be your Man" come from this record, issued hurriedly to capitalise on Beatlemania. But even when they were laying into some classic Chuck Berry, by this time the Beatles had acquired a unique sound in the blend of John's and Paul's voices, while George was coming on by leaps and bounds as a guitar player. While not absolutely essential, as a snapshot of a band in a place and time, With the Beatles is good for a smile. --Chris Nickson

WITH THE BEATLES is the first of the two great albums from the Beatlemania period (the other being A Hard Day's Night). The band takes a leap from its debut album, Please Please Me, and has established its sound: tight, three-part harmonies, George's finger-picking guitar solos, Paul's balladry, John's shouting vocals, and Ringo's steady backbeat and cymbal wash. Altogether, this album is the soundtrack to 1963 Britain and 1964 across the ocean.
The album has energy and drive from the very first note. It Won't Be Long is a driving opener with exciting back-and-forth vocals between Lennon and the other Beatles. All I've Got To Do is a slower, soulful version of the same song, but just as effective. If you could pull a single off the album, then All My Loving would be the best candidate. Paul's number features a fine Chet Atkins-style solo from George. Little Child picks up the tempo with some fine harmonica playing by John. Don't Bother Me is a decent song, but more importantly marks George's songwriting debut. Till There Was You is the first cover of the album and solidifies Paul's reputation as the band's balladeer. Please Please Me must be one the best Motown covers ever with its drop-dead "WAIT!" intro and tremendous vocals.
The second half of the album opens with the spotlight on George doing a wonderful Roll Over Beethoven. However, now we run into some lesser songs: Hold Me Tight (sounds incomplete and out of key) and I Wanna be Your Man (little more than a chant). To compensate, The Beatles produce a pair of fine Motown covers, Devil In Her Heart and You Really Got A Hold On Me. The call-and-response vocals on the latter, I must admit, outshine the Smokey Robinson & The Miracles original (sorry).

Because the Beatles fame and success came so quickly and intensely, it would have been forgivable if their second album didn't match the high quality of their debut. But, in trademark Beatle fashion, they not only matched it, they topped it. The same kind of material is here, just better. "I Wanna Be Your Man", "It Won't Be Long", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Little Child", and "Hold Me Tight" made "With The Beatles" the most downright *hard rocking* album you could get at the end of 1963. But to even it out, some slower numbers are included, all of which are sublime. "All I've Got to Do" is gorgeous, and "Don't Bother Me", George Harrison's first original, is actually one of the best tracks on the album. Even "Till There Was You", a cover of a musical number, is a standout (and the guitar solo proves just how accomplished a guitar player George really was). The only possible gripe for this fantastic album is that their originals are now so good that the covers sound a little bland in comparison. But don't worry, that's something they would remedy on the next album.

The Beatles second long playing release of 1963 was not as good as the first, though by the time it came out that hardly mattered. The Beatles were all over the map and all over the charts. Singles, and double-sided singles, extended plays (of 4 songs) and albums (14 songs in Britain, 11 or 12 in North America) were the different formats for marketing in those days, and the process whereby a song might be released as a single but excluded from an album, or released on neither, but included on an extended play, was shrouded in mystery. Anyway, the Beatles had hits with From Me To You, She Loves You and I Want to Hold Your Hand, and could have had a hit with This Boy, but none of these songs made it onto With The Beatles. Instead, the Beatles second LP includes 7 Lennon-McCartney compositions, All My Loving being the best, George Harrison's first and arguably worst composition recorded by the band (Don't Bother Me) and six cover songs. The Beatles had enough good material of their own, by this point, to stop singing other people's songs, but odd ideas about marketing music prevailed in those days, and this album more than any other by the Beatles, suffered in that environment. It Won't Be Long, All I've Got To Do, All My Loving, Little Child, and Hold Me Tight are the best Beatles compositions on this disc. Had the four songs mentioned above (From Me To You, She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and This Boy) been included, this album would have been a worthy followup to Please Please Me, the group's first release. Don't Bother Me and I Wanna Be Your Man should not have made the cut. Similarly, Till There Was You, seems unnecessary, and Please Mr. Postman and Roll Over Beethoven were not as good as the originals.Read more ›

The Beatles top their debut with their second album; from the spring of '63, when they recorded Please Please Me, to the fall of '63, when they released this album, they had gone from a local Liverpool group with a hit single to Britain's biggest stars. Over the summer, Beatlemania had exploded and now the Fab Four were playing the Palladium and a Royal Command Performance rather than the Cavern. Check out the covers, and you'll see the difference. The four eager kids on the first album have morphed into the cool, aloof icons on this one. And the music? This is where the Beatles kick off their flight to ever loftier heights. This is more rock and roll than Please Please Me, and it's faster and more urgent as well. John's performance on Please Mr. Postman is outstanding; he's said he was the leader of the group at this point, and on With the Beatles his peculiar voice dominates most of the songs he sings on. It Won't Be Long kicks off with a jarring variation of the "yeah yeah yeahs" from their hit single She Loves You, Little Child is an underrated classic where Lennon changes his voice every line, veering from sensitive and sorrowful to tough and deep, and Money closes the album sardonically with a gleeful celebration of greed. Paul's no slouch either, effectively crooning the show tune Till There Was You and memorably delivering All My Loving, the most famous song on the album. And George has his first composition with Don't Bother Me, which is not highly regarded but very good nonetheless. It has the strange Harrison touch which is recognizable in so many of his songs.Read more ›
