Album Notes
The Beatles: John Lennon (vocals, guitar, harmonica); George Harrison (vocals, 6- & 12-string guitars); Paul McCartney (vocals, bass); Ringo Starr (drums).Additional personnel: George Martin (piano).Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, England and EMI Pathe Studios, Paris, France.The Beatles: John Lennon (vocals, guitar, piano); George Harrison (vocals, guitar, African drum); Paul McCartney (vocals, piano, Hammond organ, bass); Ringo Starr (vocals, drums, timpani, percussion).Additional personnel: George Martin (piano).Includes liner notes by Derek Taylor.It was inevitable that the constant grind of touring, writing, promoting, and recording would grate on the Beatles, but the weariness of Beatles for Sale comes as something of a shock. Only five months before, the group released the joyous A Hard Day's Night. Now, they sound beaten, worn, and, in Lennon's case, bitter and self-loathing. His opening trilogy ("No Reply," "I'm a Loser," "Baby's in Black") is the darkest sequence on any Beatles record, setting the tone for the album. Moments of joy pop up now and again, mainly in the forms of covers and the dynamic "Eight Days a Week," but the very presence of six covers after the triumphant all-original A Hard Day's Night feels like an admission of defeat or at least a regression. (It doesn't help that Lennon's cover of his beloved obscurity "Mr. Moonlight" winds up as arguably the worst thing the group ever recorded.) Beneath those surface suspicions, however, there are some important changes on Beatles for Sale, most notably Lennon's discovery of Bob Dylan and folk-rock. The opening three songs, along with "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party," are implicitly confessional and all quite bleak, which is a new development. This spirit winds up overshadowing McCartney's cheery "I'll Follow the Sun" or the thundering covers of "Rock & Roll Music," "Honey Don't," and "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!," and the weariness creeps up in unexpected places -- "Every Little Thing," "What You're Doing," even George's cover of Carl Perkins' "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" -- leaving the impression that Beatlemania may have been fun but now the group is exhausted. That exhaustion results in the group's most uneven album, but its best moments find them moving from Merseybeat to the sophisticated pop/rock they developed in mid-career. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Sombre but still excellent.......................

The fourth album by the Fabs is, yes, kind of subdued, but not by much. There are upbeat numbers like "Rock And Roll Music," the US #1 single "Eight Days A Week," Ringo's cover of Carl Perkins' "Honey Don't," and the Little Richard medley to speed things up. Gee, I've listed the bright spots of the album already!

However, songs like "I'm A Loser," "Baby's In Black," and "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" reflect a kind of weariness creeping in that later evolved into the introspective Rubber Soul. I mean, check out the sombre mugs on the album cover!

There aren't that many cover songs here than there were on their first two albums, but the ones they cover are beauts. The best of these is Chuck Berry's "Rock And Roll Music" with that immortal chorus, "give me that rock and roll music/if you wanna dance with me."

That being said, the Beatles have expressed that melancholy in upbeat songs such as "No Reply." That is about a girl who dates someone else and has her family covering for her. The poignancy expressed with the "I nearly died" refrain. And "I'm A Loser," in the same uppity vein, has lyrics such as "Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown." is it for her or for myself that I cry?"

The mid-paced "Baby's In Black" has shades of Dylan, hard to tell since all four of them are singing in contrast to Dylan's stark solo vocal. Love that lyric: "Baby's in black and I'm feeling blue."

Paul sings a nice slow ditty "I'll Follow The Sun", which happened to be one of his earliest compositions dating back to the late 1950's. In contrast, he wildly covers the engaging Little Richard medley, "Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey." Wonder how it sounds compared to the original.

Despite being Buddy Holly fans, "Words Of Love" is the only Holly song done, and it's lovingly done on this album, with Ringo's percussive instrument being a packing case of all things!

George's only song here is the Carl Perkins number "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby." Ironically, Ringo's song here is also a Carl Perkins number. Both do their admirably best here.

For Sale is still a superior Beatles album despite the sobriety of many of the songs....................

The Beatles in STEREO, part 4

Finally, after 22 years, the first 4 British albums from The Beatles are avaialble on CD in real, true Stereo, for the very first time ever! By the time that their fourth album, "Beatles For Sale", was released in the fall of 1964, it was clear that The Beatles had become a worldwide phenomenon, rising to new heights that no other group had ever been to before. Just like their first 2 albums, this release contains 8 original Beatles tunes along with 6 cover songs. The original Beatles tracks are "No Reply", "I'm A Loser", "Baby's In Black", "I'll Follow The Sun", "Every Little Thing", "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party" and "What You're Doing". The song "Eight Days A Week" is one the album's best moments and was also a number one hit in America. Cover tunes featured are "Rock And Roll Music", "Mr. Moonlight", "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey", "Words Of Love", "Honey Don't" and "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby". This album would also be eventually issued in the U.S., albeit divided into 2 seperate releases with 8 of the songs on "Beatles '65" and the other 6 songs on "Beatles VI". Aside from the fact that three of their first albums contained 6 cover tunes each, The Beatles were always innovative and very skilled at songwriting and musical ability. The remastering job done at EMI perfectly showcases the remarkable sound quality of these songs, giving them more depth and clarity when presented in stereo. This far surpasses the original mono relese. "Beatles For Sale" contains some great moments from the lads, showing why they are still so popular.

EXCELLENT CD, WELL RECORDED AND ALL GOOD BEATLE MUSIC. RECOMMEND

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE BEATLE ALBUMS. I HAD FAMILY STATIONED OVERSEAS IN THE NAVY AND STATIONED IN ENGLAND AT THE TIME IT WAS RELEASED. I HAD THE ORIGINAL PARLOPHONE RECORD. I LOST IT SOMETIME AFTER THAT.JUST RECENTLY PURCHASED THIS CD, ITS EXCELLENT, THE ADDITION OF STEREO IS FANTASTIC! THE BEATLES VOICES CAN BE APPRECIATED, CLEAR, CRISP, JUST LIKE IT WAS RECORDED A FEW HOURS AGO. I CANNOT SAY I DISLIKE ANY OF THE TRACKS, SINCE THEY WERE PROBABLY THE BEST THAT THE BEATLES HAVE PRODUCED. BASIC BAND INSTRUMENTS WITH A SUPER SOUND. I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND PET CLARK, MY LOVE, WHICH I WOULD SAY ALL TRACKS ARE EXCELLENT. AND MORE RECENT AL STEWART YEAR OF THE CAT ALBUM. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THIS PURCHSASE.
