This is a thread for the Capitol compilation album Rock ‘N’ Roll Music. If there is a thread already in existence for this, I apologize, but I could not find one so I’m making one.

Anyways, while going through Father Shears Campbell’s Beatles records, I found this one.

I’ve seen this compilation album before, but I’ve never listened to it. It’s quite a nice selection of upbeat Beatles rock songs.

When pulling out the first record, I noticed that it was sides 1 & 4, and the other record was sides 2 & 3. Is there any rhyme or reason to this? Or does FSC maybe have a rare misprint/pressingahdn_george_06?

For some reason I never cared for the compilation despite it being one of the earliest albums I bought (two single cassettes – volumes 1 and 2). The only interesting factor of the entire collection was that of ‘Hey Bulldog ‘, the rest of it never grabbed me in the slightest and I cannot remember seeking out volume 1 to play.

I far prefer the follow-up ‘Love Songs’ (tho surprisingly ‘Live At The Hollywood Bowl’ followed chronologically).

This is the original double album, before it was split up into Volumes 1 & 2. The one thing I found interesting about this compilation was that they used the Album version of Get Back . It isn’t something that I would have the urge to seek out and play ever, but if it’s in front of me I won’t deny it.

I only had volume 2. My dad bought it to me in a gas station in cassette . I was discovering the beatles at that time and the final coda in Hey Bulldog was like “what the…??!!” a-hard-days-night-ringo-6paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I listened to the whole album over and over. It was great.

Always found it strange using the LP ‘Get Back ‘ version over the single on compilations. On ‘Let It Be ‘ around the other snippets of dialogue it makes sense but elsewhere it’s bizarre.

Afraid not a rarity, and there is a reason for it.

In the olden days, with many gramophone players, you could stack the records on a tall central spindle, and held in place with an arm.

When you started it, the first record would drop and play, followed automatically by the next, and so on…

Record companies, especially in the US, took this into account when producing double albums.

Should you have had one of those record players, you could put side 1 and side 2 on to play, get up at the end of side 2, spin both records over and they’re set to go with sides 3 & 4. Saves needing to get up to change the record three times.

I know Capitol’s The Beatles’ Story is configured the same way.

Those record players were a bugger on your vinyl though….

Why not just use a self flipping record player, like the Sharp RR-117, one of the best record players out there, although I don’t mind flipping it myself.

I used to have one of those “record changer” players. It was kind of cool for 45s as long as you had the plastic adapters inserted in your 45s – you could stack up 8 or 10 singles and walk away – the closest we got to “mix tapes” before cassette recorders got popular…all of this is ancient history now, of course, when you’re always a click or two away from doing almost anything you want.

I wish I had one of those things, I could listen to 10 Beatles songs in a row on vinyl without touching a record after the first song.

My old bestfriend’s dad got her one of the self flipping record players but it just scratched them so bad she ended up turning that feature off and flipping it by hand. 

But, to stay on topic, I have Rock ‘N’ Roll Music but in the two parts where they got categorized into the volumes. It was some of the first Beatles vinyl I collected.

I became a Beatles fan one night while hearing Rock And Roll Music Vol. 1 on vinyl.

This was after I had heard the entire catalogue and didn’t yet consider myself a fan.

I can’t find any mention here of the Rock And Roll Music Volumes 1 & 2 compilations. They come with a variety of interesting covers and can be picked up in good used condition for a reasonable price. I’ve ordered a couple, looking forward to listening to them.

There’s a thread for the original double album, a pretty great collection before the idiots at Capitol pointlessly split it into two volumes.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Cheers Von Bontee,

That’s appreciated. This wonderful site is now so voluminous it’s difficult to navigate. My first copy from Canada has indeed side 1 & 4 on disc one. Strange to think from a British point of view that LPs played on an automatic turntable…..perhaps I’m younger than I thought!

     The good thing about separating it into volume 1 & 2 is the the diverse and interesting artwork. All best wishes………..
