Biography

"The story began in Harold Macmillan’s “never had it so good” ’50s Britain. It should be fiction: four teenagers with no more than eight O’Levels between them, running and biking and busing and busking all over Liverpool in search of new chords and old guitars and half-decent drum kit and any gig at all.
They were determined to amount to something – ... Read more in Amazon's The Beatles Store

Editorial Reviews

The classic original Beatles studio albums have been re-mastered by a dedicated team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios in London over a four year period utilising state of the art recording technology alongside vintage studio equipment, carefully maintaining the authenticity and integrity of the original analogue recordings. The result of this painstaking process is the highest fidelity the Beatles catalogue has seen since its original release.



Within each CD's new packaging, booklets include detailed historical notes along with informative recording notes. For a limited period, each CD will also be embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. The newly produced mini-documentaries on the making of each album, directed by Bob Smeaton, are included as QuickTime files on each album. The documentaries contain archival footage, rare photographs and never-before-heard studio chat from The Beatles, offering a unique and very personal insight into the studio atmosphere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caught in the middle, but... July 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Beatles for Sale and Help! are considered "holding pattern" works and are less revered by critics because they didn't introduce any great innovations or ground-breaking ideas. But I don't think that does these albums justice. Sure, most of the lyrical concerns are still love-oriented, but many of the lyrics are becoming increasing complex. Even a song like Yesterday shows a real maturity in the lyrics.
The songs offered here are the Beatles at the top of their game, in my opinion. Gorgeous melodies, catchy hooks, great harmony singing and sharp musicianship abound. The Beatles were becoming increasing facile in the studio, and it shows. The strength of songs like Help, Ticket to Ride and Yesterday are legend, but there are many other real gems on this album. You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, It's Only Love and Your Going to Lose That Girl are classic mid-period Lennon; McCartney answers with the rocking Another Girl and The Night Before, not to mention the beautiful, folky I've Just Seen a Face, all extremely underrated.
Harrison gets two songs on this album, and asserts himself well with the lovely pop of I Need You and You Like Me Too Much. Maybe not up to the dizzying heights of Lennon & McCartney songsmithing, but getter closer.
This leaves "filler" like Act Naturally, Tell Me What You See and Dizzy Miss Lizzy. Just listen to Lennon's vocal performance on Dizzy Miss Lizzy and try calling it filler...though admittedly, the guitar riff grates on one after a while. Ringo's "aw, shucks" reading of Act Naturally is PERFECT (and SO appropriate) and Lennon & McCartney's magical harmonies lift Tell Me What You See well above the pedestrian.
That's it. Overwhelming evidence, well presented, that this is not just a mediocre holding pattern album, but classic mid-period Beatles. It's now up to you, members of the juke-box jury.
I'll say no more.

Greetings Beatles Fans ....

This CD is literally the best of both worlds. This has the complete Parlophone UK version of Help, which has tracks not on the US version. And it also has the complete Capitol US version of Help, which has tracks not on the UK version.

The US version of Help includes the short James Bond Theme lead-in to the title track "Help!", plus some instrumental music that is in the movie itself. The UK version doesn't have these, but it does have "Yesterday" and "Act Naturally" which US fans would get only on singles or on the Capitol US-release-only album "Yesterday ... and Today".

It's worth the investment. Thanx-A-Lot and Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh I believe, in Yesterday January 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Things got a little more upbeat following the downbeat For Sale. Also, the Beatles songcrafting improved and would set the pace for things to come. The title track has the same frantic quick-paced sound that made the title track to their first movie a hit. The theme of age reducing the cocksure assertive of one's younger years and the need for that helping hand is universal. And who can forget these lyrics: "Help me if you can--I'm feeling down/cause I do appreciate you being around/Help me get my feet back on the ground/Won't you pleeeeaaaase please help me?" John gets good backing vocal help from Paul and George.
"The Night Before" has a faint Chuck Berry influence. Paul sings here and it's a song of puzzlement, concerning a girl's nice and sincere behaviour and why she has done an about-face in attitude. That's John on electric piano.
John sports a strained and sometimes roughened voice in the acoustic ballad "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away". There's a flute solo by session musician Johnnie Scott in two places.
The distorted pedal guitar is cool in George Harrison's "I Need You". A similar effect was used in the song "Yes It Is", which is on Past Masters Volume 1. The theme of mistreatment explored in "The Night Before" is revisited here as well. He also sings the engaging "You Like Me Too Much", the first time he sings two songs on one album. This was a nominee for the movie, and understandbly so. He gets piano help from Paul, John, and producer George Martin.
The engaging "Another Girl" has Paul on lead vocals and lead guitar and might be a response to either of the two mistreatment songs: "I have got another girl who will love me to the end, through thick and thin/She will always be my friend." Well, that's a relief.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite LP June 11, 2008
Format:Vinyl
A raison d'etre for "Help" the LP and resulting movie was to showcase the voices and faces of that Liverpool quartet, greatest rock-and-roll band of all time--the Beatles. The fact that it contains good music is just lagniappe.

For a group "more popular than Jesus" to live normally couldn't happen with this incredibly popular band. The movie shows that they need "Help!" Besides that, there is a plot line: Ringo has a ring that someone evil wants so he can rule the world. The story is just a facade to showcase the antics of this lively foursome.

Each song derives naturally out of the circumstances of the action of the movie. So Acting Naturally was one way to excite the fervor of rabid fans.

I well remember this movie. My friends and I didn't care if there was a story or not. We just wanted to see and hear the Beatles. That's what we got with fourteen songs performed in ways both serious and silly, rambunctious and quirky.

"You've got to hide your love away" is one of the serious songs. Others like "Ticket to Ride" are suggestive of things to come when the Beatles experimented with mind altering drugs, when they went to India to study Buddhism.

And "Yesterday," an ode to lost love and lack of understanding why it ended, is just that--lost love. Remember, the songs did not need to be in context, just feature the Beatles, together or individually.

"Help" the LP and movie definitely spotlight this Fab Four. The LP, or vinyl long-playing recording, is still available from Amazon sellers. For those with LP collections, buying a missing record like "Help" is a happy day! However, a less expensive way is CD.

1965 Original Mix vs 1987 Remix of Help and Rubbersoul
The difference is mostly in the positioning of the instruments. The 1987 remix is more balanced to suit contemporary standards.

I prefer the 1965 mix over the artificial revisionary 1987 version, but the mono trumps both.

Help album
The only version that has the James Bond intro to it is from "The Captiol Albums Volume 1" which features the Capitol configured version of the album and the soundtrack music.
