I am looking for contemporary reviews of the albums - e.g. from the Mersey Beat, NME/Melody Maker/Sounds, regular UK media (Mirror, Daily Mail etc). Does anyone know if these are online somewhere? I have seen them in the Mojo Beatles book, but googling isn't bringing any results for them being online. Would be extremely grateful!

Sorry I can't help you...Those would be nice to see!

I understand that Rolling Stone's website updates old "original" reviews with newer ones if the old ones don't jibe with contemporary critical consensus.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody'. - Paul McCartney

Good post there SatanHimself (re the White Album). I still have my original NY Times review of Abbey Road. The reviewer said it was awful save the medley at the end.

Interesting that in both reviews the reviewer completely missed Harrison's greatest contributions.
