About this album

With The Beatles is the second studio album by the English rock group The Beatles. It was released on 22 November 1963 on Parlophone, and was recorded four months after the band’s debut Please Please Me. The album features eight original compositions (seven by Lennon–McCartney and “Don’t Bother Me”, George Harrison’s first recorded solo composition and his first released on a Beatles album) and six covers (mostly of Motown and R&B hits). Most of the songs from the album were released in the United States by Capitol Records as the Meet The Beatles! LP on 20 January 1964, and the remaining that were not, featured on their next US album, The Beatles’ Second Album.

The album was also released in November 1963 by Capitol Records in Canada, with a slight change to the title Beatlemania! With The Beatles. This release has the distinction of being the first LP of Beatles material released in North America, pre-dating the Capitol US Meet The Beatles! and the Vee Jay Records Introducing… The Beatles LPs by two months.

The LP had advance orders of a half million and sold another half million by September 1965, making it the second album to sell a million copies in the UK, after the soundtrack to the 1958 film South Pacific. With The Beatles stayed at the top of the charts for 21 weeks, displacing Please Please Me, so that The Beatles occupied the top spot for 51 consecutive weeks. It even reached number 11 in the “singles charts” (because at the time UK charts counted all records sold, regardless of format).

    It was time for them to ditch the covers. Unlike the first album, where a couple of the best songs are covers, here the originals crush the covers. "Roll Over Beethoven?" "Please Mr. Postman?" "Money (That's What I Want)?" All these songs had already been done to DEATH even by 1963 and not a single one of them is performed definitively by The Beatles. On the other hand, "All My Loving," "It Won't Be Long," etc., are brilliant songs that have gone down as some of the Beatles' best and some of the best Pop songs of all time.

    For some reason it seems like this album is not mixed and produced as well as the other Beatles albums. All the songs on the album sound a little muffled.

    The best of the first albums of The Beatles, so far (the only early amazing one to my eyes). Such a masterpiece... and yet I'm a metalhead. "Don't bother me" is such an underrated song!

    The best songs (All I've Got to Do, All My Loving, Don't Bother Me, I Wanna Be Your Man), in my opinion, are better than the best of Please Please Me, but PPM's stronger in general.

    Obviously not their worst if we are including Yellow Submarine

    The greatest Beatles album. Completely beats out the later ones, except for the White Album, which is the one contender.

    Their worst? Are you crazy? Every Beatles album is superb, but Beatles for sale is their weakest.

    I used to think it was their worst too, but recently it's been my go-to Beatles album. It's more consistent than their others, I guess, and there aren't any tracks I skip at all. If I could only choose one Beatles album, it'd be this one. Love it!

    You know..We bitch a lot about what the world is coming to..and I think the grump is well earned..But every now and than I listen to one of the first Beatles songs..and it makes me realize just how lucky I am to have been born to see Rock and Roll being invented..Than just in the nick of time The Beatles came along and took Rock to another level..Hail, Hail..Rock and Roll
