Nearly every song is uptempo and hard driving.
G. Davis
As for the music, I was familiar with the album because I had owned the cassette at one time and so I knew what to expect.
Raeford C. Barnes
In fact, most of the songs on the album are potboilers.

It is too bad this compliation is only available as an import. I bought this on vinyl back in the 1980's when I was in high school and played the disk over and over again. For those out there who think the Beatles can't or don't rock, this set will prove them wrong. Nearly every song is uptempo and hard driving. The first disk covers mostly their early recordings many of which are covers of the 1950's artist that inspired them. Many of these songs like Long Tall Sally were recorded live in the studio with only one or two takes. The second disk contains more of their later and more polished material including the apocolyptic Helter Skelter being arguably one the first truly heavy metal songs. I would love to see this reissue that I may hear these songs in the same order as I used to listen to them. Around the same time, a compliation called Love Songs was release that was equally as impressive as this collection but which displays the band's more melodic, acoustic and sensitive side.

On June 11th, 1976, Capitol released the first in a series of theme albums containing previously released Beatles songs. The double disc set, titled "Rock 'N' Roll Music", mixed a dozen rock 'n' roll cover tunes with 16 rocking Beatles originals. The collection was the first "new" Beatles album issued in three years and, along with the single pulled from the album, marked the return of the group to the Capitol label as Apple had fizzled out by that time. The album's success was due in part to interest in the Beatles generated by Paul McCartney's American tour, number one album "Wings At The Speed Of Sound" and number one single "Silly Love Songs". It also benefited from an extensive marketing campaign; the book and TV-movie "Helter Skelter". which dealt with cult leader Charles Manson's horrific interpretation of songs from "The White Album"; and renewed interest in the fifties and its rock 'n' roll music. This last factor influenced Capitol's decision to use a 1950's decor for the album's jacket and labels.

Although the collection's opening and closing tracks, "Twist And Shout" and "Get Back", were huge hits, Capitol stayed away from most of the group's biggest selling singles, opting instead for album tracks with a rocking beat. Capitol wanted to avoid putting out an album dominated by songs from the group's red and blue greatest hits packages from 1973. Accordingly, some of the band's best known rockers such as "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Day Tripper" and "Paperback Writer" are not included. Only "Drive My Car", "Revolution", "Back In The U.S.S.R." and "Get Back" are repeats from the red and blue collections.

THE BEATLES-ROCK & ROLL MUSIC: When CAPITOL RECORDS released the double album ROCK & ROLL MUSIC in the mid-70s, it served as a much needed sequel to the FAB FOUR's classic comps 1962-1966 and 1967-1970. Half of this party platter focuses on their all important influences, highlighting fiery takes on rockin' pioneers CARL PERKINS, CHUCK BERRY and the underrated LARRY WILLIAMS. As usual, JOHN and PAUL take on the lion's share of singing chores, punctuating THE ISLEY BROTHERS' TWIST AND SHOUT and LITTLE RICHARD's LONG TALL SALLY with raw roadhouse energy, but GEORGE also gets off solid lead vocals on ROLL OVER BEETHOVEN and EVERYBODY'S TRYING TO BE MY BABY, while RINGO has his moment with THE SHIRELLES' rollicking BOYS. The rest of this shindig belongs to a batch of like-minded mop-top originals; some such as I SAW HER STANDING THERE and DRIVE MY CAR were on the red and blue collections, but many, including I WANNA BE YOUR MAN, BIRTHDAY, and I'M DOWN weren't. For a thrown together cash-in, this works remarkably well, a testiment to THE BEATLES' dues paying cover tune taste and giddy house-rockin' delivery.

RATING: FIVE "YEAH!"'S

I bought the double album when it first came out for three reasons: 1- great songs and most were never released as singles. 2- All good rocking songs. I love The Beatles "Love Songs" for the same reason. 3- Because McCartney was on a roll at the time Capital Records mixed some of the songs differently to emphasize his vocals in harmonies.
Does anyone know if the mixes on this collection are true to the double album set from the 70's or is it the original mixes from the 60's or 2009 remasters?
