In my rankings of the 13 album canon I placed Beatles For Sale #10 saying of it: “Carefree and jaunty with a touch of darkness. A template for the times. Consistently impresses.

Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.

What do you think of this comment:

Tom Ewing of Pitchfork Media said, “Lennon’s anger and the band’s rediscovery of Rock ‘N’ Roll mean For Sale’s reputation as the group’s meanest album is deserved”

Woah, I went on a beatles bible sabbatical! 

I think the album is great! The cover is nice, and Kansas City is one of my favorite early Beatles songs.

Yes, I did just say that Kansas City is a favorite of mine.

Elmore James' got nothing on this baby!

I just read this. I feel chuffed. Isn’t The Jacaranda where they finally landed on The Beatles as their ‘forever’ name?
