I stay with Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper ... Which one do you like or think is the best album of the most important musical group in history. If you are not very set in Beatles, activating the "detailed view" option or clicking on a disc in "read more" can help you.
YELLOW SUBMARINE SONGTRACK (1999)
The Yellow Submarine with the themes that appear in the film, not the soundtrack of George Martin that occupied the face two of the original album
YELLOW SUBMARINE (1969)
A transition album to cover the animated film and allow time to prepare the Let It Be. Only 4 new tracks appear Only A Northern Song - All Together Now - Hey Bulldog and It's All Too Much, the rest repeated or filled with G.Martin's orchestral pieces.
LET IT BE ... NAKED (2003)
The LET IT BE without the choral orchestral choral arrangements of Phil Spector. in the subjects of study like "Across the Universe" or "The Long and Winding Road" but beware, the other live themes are from the concert sessions on the terrace of Apple studios in Savile Row (not in Abbey Road), but they are not the same as those used in the original LET IT BE, so this disc can never replace the original, it is complementary and serves to have a different vision although as the first nothing. Include the "Don't Let Me Down" and it's fine but lose the charisma with that presentation, they should have kept the cover and the order of the titles.
FOR SALE (1964)
This album can be a step back because after a Hard Day's Night with all the original songs FOR SALE uses versions (you also have to keep in mind that people wanted more Beatles and more and now). It has 8 original tracks: 'No Reply,' 'I'm a Loser', "Every Little Thing" 'Baby's in Black "," I'll Follow the Sun "," What You're Doing "" I Don't Want to Spoil the Party "and the famous" Eight Days A Week ", the rest are versions of classic rock'n'roll (from the beginning, from the Hamburg era) like Mr Moonlight and Words of love, songs totally expired now then and used in this album surely to fill and is that everyone wanted more Beatles ....
WITH THE BEATLES (1963)
The 2nd album with the well-known ALL MY LOVING, well, more rock singles singles, versions like the Please Mr Postman and good original songs although unknown to the public: It Won't Be Long - All I've Got To Do, of the that never appear in compilations ...
PLEASE PLEASE ME (1963)
The first Beatles album, compilation of the first singles: LOVE ME DO, PLEASE PLEASE ME .... and the TWIST & SHOUT (the Anglo-Saxon bamba that closes the album where Lennon "shatters" the voice ...) groundbreaking SHE LOVES YOU, just like I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND, stayed single on horseback between this and the next album With The Beatles
MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR (1967)
Psychedelic album to accompany the film - (by the way a true roll, a kind of home video with a good base idea but that only stays in that, the end result is disappointing) - with several new songs: the impressive I Am The Walrus, (with that peculiar tempo that would take in 1989 Tears For Fears for his "Sowing the Seeds of Love" or the string arrangements that Prince would use in his "Around The Wolrd In A Day (1985) ...) the classic Fool On The Hill, the music hall: Your Mother Should Know and several songs to complete the album and that were previous singles like Penny Lane or Strawberry Fields (from Sgt. Pepper sessions) or All You Need ... (the single recorded live and broadcast worldwide on a television show) authentic masterpieces that shouldn't be here just stuffed in. A very good album although the cover is awful.
A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (1963)
A record of simple pop songs, easy melodies and very very youthful chords but capable of transmitting energy and adrenaline through a tube, listen Tell Me Why, Can`t Buy me Love or When I Get Home authentic pop bombs that came to give a breath of fresh air to all the people who in 1964 were bored of slow-rock, doo doo whop or reheated three-chord rock'n'roll. It is a youthful, easy and positive album that marks an era, it also has no versions, they are all original and songs like "If I Fell" or "And I Love Her" have some of the most beautiful melodies and cadences ever written in history of pop
POP disk where there are them. Strength, youth The Help theme with the two vocal melodies: the main one is strength, speed, background softens and lengthens the melodic base, something similar they do in You're Going To Lose That Girl. Absolutely GREAT! It can be years that can always be heard. Another rock cane: The Night Before is TOTAL. Harrison's two themes: "I Need You" and "You Like MeToo Much" are beautiful! From Yesterday that can be said. Now they are saying that Nat King Cole was already singing a similar theme ... that McCartney copied it ... the fact is that it did not exist before, nor did anyone claim it Yesterday is the SONG and is from Paul ... It also forms the soundtrack from the movie of the same name that by the way is very entertaining, not like Magical Mistery Tour ...
LET IT BE (1970)
Everything has been said about the Beatles. To comment on this album I will only say that it is a half-live piece of album with a beastly sound to be from the year 68. The subjects of study "shattered" Phil Spector with his overloaded orchestrations: "The Long And Winding Road" or "Across the Universe ", which you can find in its purest form in the Let it be" Naked "There is also a beautiful semi-acoustic version of" Across the Universe "in the" Pastmaster Vol 2 "It is the last to be released but not the final album of Beatles which is "Abbey Road" his greatest work. The most powerful song on the album and not very well known is "I've got a Feeling" which is pure cane rock always hidden by the great "Get Back" or Let It Be ". Essential, it is an essential part of the history of rock .
RUBBER SOUL (1965)
THE album that closes the first time of Beatles, the one of the simple songs, of love, without more pretensions. In this work there are songs like "In My Life", considered by many musicians as the best pop song in history, for its symmetry in phrasing, song, instrumental bridge and it seems very simple ... Also to highlight "Nowhere Man ": incredible vocal harmonies! and well the super "groove" "Drive My Car" and unknown and great songs like "You Won't See Me" or Harrison's "If I Needed Someone. This album dazzled the genius Brian Wilson (Beach Boys) and his eagerness to overcome led him to compose "Pet Sounds" (the Sgt.Pepper of American music) and in turn this led MaCartney to devise the Sgt.Pepper and took more than one sound of Wilson ... This album is a step forward to Revolver, to Sgt ... is the beginning of the revolution.
WHITE ALBUM (1968)
Prolific and promiscuous album. A lot of songs that have nothing to do with each other but that constitute an inseparable EVERYTHING: "THE WHITE ALBUM". The first authentic heavy: "Helter Skelter", or the cane rock "Back in the USSR". Sweet songs: "Martha My Dear" "I Will" ... Strength and acidity: "Dear Prudence" "Glass Onion" "Everybody's got something to hide ..." A babysitter: "Good Night". A Charleston: "Honey Pie" He even has an idiot song: "Ob la di Ob la da" probably the worst song of the Beatles and a western, a blues, a tv show theme ... well you could comment on each song ... There is something for everyone. You always find the appropriate topic. I think that the blank cover (the sum of all colors) without any element or photograph is really right so as not to distort or condition what it contains inside ...
Great album that lets you glimpse what would later arrive in Sgt.Pepper.and Abbey Road Revolutionary is a leap from "Help" and "Rubber Soul", with this album the Beatles were no longer a group for teenagers but some musicians, true creators and composers. It has everything: psychedelia: "She Said She Said", what strength! Sweetness: "Here There Everywhere" and the first techno in the story: "Tomorrow Never Knows" or extraordinary songs like "Good Day Sunshine" or "Got To Get You Into My Life", "Taxman" "I'm only Sleeping" (guitars recorded backwards) or even the children's "Yellow Submarine" A revolution and the best thing is that they did not stay there!
ABBEY ROAD (1969)
It is the top work of Beatles. The best job they could do to say goodbye. Beats Sgt.Pepper and anyone else. An excellent sound that does not seem like equipment from the year 69. The two side of the original vinyl (tracks 7 to 16 of the CD) is a suite with variations on a main theme all joined from "You never give me ..." to "Carry That Weight ". On the other hand the brutal" I Want You ", the psychedelic" Come Together "or the beautiful masterpieces of Harrison" Something "and" Here Comes the Sun ". Anyway, it is the "requiem" of pop or rock. The culmination of what started with Sgt.Pepper ... or Revolver or Rubber Soul or .... It is Beatles's farewell album even though Let It Be came out later. If you pass through London do not forget to visit that crosswalk, it is very easy to get there and you can paint on the wall of the studios ....
SGT.PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND (1967)
He appeared in June 1967 and Hendrix who was in London at that time interrupted his concert to play a song on the album that had just come out and cheered on McCartney and Beatles. Sgt.Pepper is the first work done as a completely original, progressive, creative and revolutionary complete work. The era of the 2 or 3 minute singles that were then grouped in a compilation LP at 33rpm is over. It is a beautiful album: that cover, a pop icon, the cutouts, the color, the letters printed on the back cover (original vinyl). The excellent, experimental, revolutionary musical themes, light years away from the simple three-chord rock'n 'roll songs with which Beatles razed just three years before ... amazing! taken from everyday stories, baked by George Martin (the true fifth beatle ... without him none of this would have happened ...). The introduction "to the show" with the title title that they return to in the "reprise" at the end, together with that sung by Ringo: "With a Little Help from my Friends", then "Lucy in the Sky With Diamons (nothing from" LSD " ...) to the waltz, the unknown "Getting Better" a positive, antidepressant theme, which does not appear in any compilation and which McCartney rescued on his 2002/03 tour. "Fixing a Hole", "She's Leaving Home" the saddest "waltz" of pop (it leaves you a strange melancholy when you hear it ...) and so one by one everything is great "Good Morning" with some elaborate changes of measures (5 / 4,4 / 4,3 / 4) and the ending with "A Day in the Life" the first symphonic rock in history, with that orchestration and that complex drums. If there is any but it is because of Harrison's theme "Within you without you" Hindu, very heavy and out of context, two fundamental themes that correspond to Sgt. Pepper are also missing but they were not included in the album because they came out in single: "Penny Lane" and "Strawberrry Fields Forever." It all started after "Rubber Soul": Brian Wilson (Beach Boys) was stung and I think "Pet Sound" and then Beatles got stung and made Sgt Pepper, McCartney himself talks about how he took some ideas of Wilson instrumentation for Sergeant . Great "rivalries" between geniuses ... Sgt. Pepper is a record that everyone should have at home.
