The Beatles Mono Vinyl Unboxing

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 Beatlemania Grips the U.S.A. October 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that launched Beatlemania in the U.S. Well, sort of. The cover is the same, but this is the U.K. version of the Beatles' second album, which was released only eight months after their debut in March of 1963. The U.S. version (entitled Meet the Beatles) included only nine of these songs and added "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and its b-side "I Saw Her Standing There" along with "This Boy."
But even though this is not the version that millions of baby boomers (like myself) grew up with, it's still an essential album in the Beatles' catalog. Among the originals is their best song never released as a single, "All My Loving." Also Ringo gets a vocal on the song originally given to the Rolling Stones, "I Wanna Be Your Man." And George Harrison gets his first songwriting credit with "Don't Bother Me."
The Beatles raid the Motown vaults for many of the covers. "Please Mr. Postman," "You've Really Got a Hold on Me" and "Money" are highlights. The latter features one of Lennon's best vocals. [It wouldn't be until their next album when they released a collection of all original material.]
All told, this album catches the Beatles while they are still not too far removed from their Cavern Club and Hamburg days. As such, you hear an urgency and energy in their performance that sets their music apart from the rest of the British Invasion that followed. ESSENTIAL

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously Under-rated November 19, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't get over how critical fans and critics alike are of this wonderful, energetic and fun album. I simply adore it, and it's my number one choice when I need something to get me up and going in the morning! Their youthful energy shines through- this is moons before bitterness, jadedness and egotism crept in. They're just a bunch of kids who enjoyed playing music together, having a great old time recording their originals and covering some classics. This "purity" is what I miss in the later recordings. They seemed to stop loving making music together. But here they are at the pinnacle of fun- and they only got better with A Hard Day's Night (which was originally my favorite early Beatles album, until this one caught me).
My favorite tracks are the rockin' opener "It Won't Be Long", Lennon's gorgeous rendition of "You've Really Got a Hold on Me", George rockin' out on "Roll Over Beethoven", and the driving beat of "I Wanna Be Your Man". And who could forget a classic like Paul's "All My Loving"? And I absolutely love "All I've Got to Do"!
No one will ever compare or even come close to the magic they created. Ever. C'mon! Give this album a chance, people! Appreciate the energy and excitement! It's what started the mania in the first place!

5.0 out of 5 stars As Significant Now As It Was 40 Years Ago January 25, 2004
By Kim K.
Format:Vinyl
As mentioned already by previous reviewers, this is the British version of Meet The Beatles-which combined a few tunes off their 2nd album with this, their 1st(in the US). I was just a wee lass when these guys arrived on our shores & as soon as I saw them on their very first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, I knew life was never gonna be the same. No matter what age you were if you were around 40 yrs. ago, you realized this was history in the making, the start of something new & exciting in the world of rock & roll music. From the opening cut to the very last, the music sounds just as fresh even now. NY's oldies & classic rock stations will be playing most(if not all)of The Beatles catalog during the month of February. Today's so-called 'boy bands' cannot hold a candle to these guys & all the other great rock/pop bands of the British Invasion of the 1960s. No Beatle album collection is complete without this. Extremely enjoyable & worth 10 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars only for those with ears to hear February 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've read most of the reviews below, and it seems most are doing no more than using this space to air their personal bias about the Beatles. A true shame for those who have never heard this album.
Just for the record: this album catches the Beatles at the first flush of their incredible rise in popularity, and balances their years of experience playing clubs with the freshness of riding the first wave of British Beatlemania. The British public had finally caught on to the Beatles' incredible sound, and the Beatles responded, on this album and Hard Days's Night, with an adreniline rush that is very evident in the grooves (oops, I mean bitstream).
Anyone who knows anything about the early Beatles knows very well that they weren't about silly suits, any more than they were about writing deep lyrics. They were really about music and consolidating all their wonderful influences (R&B, Motown, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Elvis, great showtunes) into a wonderful new sound. They were about delivering the finest rock vocals and harmony that those British listeners had every heard. They were about doing their own interpertations of their favorite artists' songs, many times unwittingly blowing the originals away! They were about writing the best songs they could possibly write. Listen carefully to the quality of the individual voices, the quality of the harmonies, and the excitement of the production on this album, and see if you don't get it: the Beatles were, and are, a true musical phenomenon.
It is absurd to say that this doesn't compare to their later work.

Its all about profits
Well they were remastered back in 1987 but that was 1987. Yes having mono and stereo on one CD would be nice. Now we are in 2009 and have advanced technologies and here we are doing it finally for the Beatles. Every other band has had their music remastered and it is time for the greatest band... Read More

Ringos vocal in Beethoven?
That was either a (BAD) joke, or you have little idea what you are talking about. As far as I know, 'Beethoven', was always George's vocal piece, even in early live performances. There are certainly several live recordings of George singing this song. I don't know what gives you the idea that... Read More
