Hi from argentina. I love "
A Taste Of Honey". While nowhere near their masterpieces, it is a wonderful performance of a haunting melody and a highlight of their first LP.

Love those vocals "...yes I-I will return..." "I'll come back..." And so forth.

Comments welcome!

Hi FLFIORE. Glad you have jumped into our discussions. Have you stumbled across the thread where you can tell us about how you got to know the Beatles music? We would love to hear your story if you would like to tell it. Being from Argentina, do you have any fondness for "Maxwell's Silver Hammer?" Have you heard Paul's solo song that has the lyric "kiss your lips of silver?" Or, perhaps you and other Argentinians are tired of the references to silver. If so, sorry for the attempt at humor.

 

Thank you "Ahhh girl" I have just posted my first Beatles experiences in the "My fist Beatles songs" thread. I reproduce it below.

I would like to share how I came to hear The Beatles. I was born and raised in Argentina and I was 12 years old when their first records were released (1964). Attending an English school, I first heard them at schoolmates' homes. But they were impossible to ignore, they were everywhere, immediately popular. A commercial on TV with Spanish lyrics over I Saw Her Standing There, Teen magazines with pics and info on them, everything from the start. They showed the Ed Sullivan show on Argentine TV but I can't tell exactly when. I was blown away as my schoolmates, my siblings and everybody else.

I bought their singles and EPs which pretty much covered 10 songs of Please Please Me, so my first album was the second. Later in 1964, I got A hard days' night. Issues followed the UK versions.

Parents and teachers largely did not like them but this was the mid-sixties and the generation gap. Paradoxically, it was my Dad who brought home the single Please Please Me c/w Love Me Do, in late 1963. This is before Beatlemania, so he hadn't yet seen their long hair and rebellious attitude but kudos to him, he must have liked the music!

The Beatles were tops until I heard Cream, then for a couple of years I became "progressive" and the Beatles were second bill. But that did not last long and they are at the top of my list since.

My favorites are Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Norwegian Wood, A Day In The Life and Hey Jude. Of the early years, my favourite is and always has been I Saw Her Standing There. Talk about energy and enthusiasm...

It looks like the recordings are available to download in the US at iTunes again. Or am I misreading this? I haven't really been paying attention due to the $40 price tag myself.
