Product Description

Product Description

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

Through their first four albums the Beatles would follow a pattern of moving forward, then falling back. Please Please Me was better than With The Beatles; A Hard Day's Night far superior to Beatles For Sale. With Help, the band's fifth album, the Beatles begin a forward march that lasted many years. They were on the verge of recording their finest albums. Even later albums that were not as good were at least progressions. Where they failed, they were ambitious failures. Help is a transitional album, an underrated one at that, as the Beatles fan base was about to shift. Older fans, perhaps nauseated by Beatlemania were turning to the Rolling Stones in search of satisfaction. Other listeners gave the album short shrift because it was the soundtrack to a rather silly film by the same name. But listen closely and you can hear a band growing out of its own skin, ready to reconquer America. Ticket to Ride pushes past I Feel Fine; Help supersedes A Hard Day's Night. The Beatles are growing up. John's writing and singing on You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, You're Going to Lose That Girl, and It's Only Love are breathtaking. Paul's classic, Yesterday, a gorgeous tune with vapid lyrics, gives the album three strong singles. George steps forward with I Need You, his best composition to date. The Night Before, Another Girl, You Like Me Too Much, Tell Me What You See, I've Just Seen a Face, and two covers, Ringo singing the country song Act Naturally, and John screeching the rocker Dizzy Miss Lizzie round out the album. Help is not Rubber Soul, but it is pointing in that direction.

This masterpiece shows the musical giant steps the Beatles took since they released their first movie album a year earlier [in 1964]. On this collection, one can hear the stronger, richer and more confident musical arrangements. It has been said that the beautifully haunting "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" was largely influenced by Dylan. Be that as it may, Dylan did not compose or play this song. It is a compliment to Dylan personally to say that he in any way helped guide and shape this beautiful piece.
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.

This CD is not the same album I owned on vinyl or audiocassette. The original American HELP! album was both a Beatles album and a Soundtrack album. What happened to the instrumental tracks that Ken Thorne composed? Those great instrumental tracks that were on the LP are missing? One of the central plot elements of HELP! was the satirical slant spoofing the James Bond-Spy phenomenon of that period! The music that Ken Thorne composed or adapted is now missing. The Beatles’ songs interlaced with Thorne’s instrumentals made for a great musical experience from the film. I objectively can only rate this based on the absence of this fantastically nostalgic material. This cover is not as good as the original in my opinion. The original was more intricate and detailed and was truly more a product of the film and the times. ....

HELP! marks a modest improvement over the middling Beatles For Sale, redeemed by two classic songs: John's confessional Help! and Paul's instant standard, Yesterday.
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.
