I think I need to clarify about I Saw Her Standing There. It's in no way one of the worst things they did, and the countdown is electrifying, but after that, something is just lacking. I think it's unpolished sound was intentional, but I would have preferred them to lose the raggedness of the recording.

It was actually one of the songs they spent the most time recording on 11 Feb 1963 - There's A Place was done in 10 takes, Seventeen (as it was then known) in nine, all in the morning. Handclaps were added later that day.

FWIW I think it's brilliant. I can't really think of a better album opener from that time, apart from possibly PPM.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away
