Hello! My first post is about this “Meet The Beatles” album I own. Few seconds before the start of Don’t Bother Me you can hear a voice saying “ST-two-two-o-four-seven”. I’ve read about this st-2-2047 edition of the album but never of the “voice” in question. How unusual is this?

I have never heard of such a thing before, but I looked it up and found this info:
GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.
I’ve never heard of that before! I wonder who the mystery voice is – presumably a tape operator.
The Steve Hoffman thread didn’t mention this precise same thing – anyone know about an extra ‘don’t’ in Don’t Bother Me ?

According to Winn in Way Beyond Compare it was released “. . .on a 1970’s Canadian pressing of Meet The Beatles which has the word “don’t” repeated during the final verse. This oddity is caused by a tape glitch and isn’t a true alternate mix”.
So sounds like it got stuck for a millisecond, like when a cd catches.

This is a great song! Then again, George songs hardly ever disappoint.
Now if I ever get a 4th copy of Meet The Beatles, it’ll be that glitched pressing because I want one now.

This has been getting a lot of play in my iPod lately. A real gem from George (should I say “yet another”)?
I’m a Paul fan,but George is definitely my 2nd favourite. This is just a really good pop tune (maybe why it was heard in the A Hard Day’s Night film despite not being on that album).
What’s everyone else’s opinion of this track? Is it one of your favourites of George’s?

I really quite like this track. George’s vocal irks me a bit occasionally, but the guitar work really suits the song, which is a huge plus. For a first song, George did very well.

I would even go so far as to say that this is one of my favorite songs that George wrote for the Beatles.

It’s a great song from a great album. I even like it’s placement between the songs around it.
George Martin, in my opinion, was very good at sequencing tracks in an order that is pleasing to the ear – it creates a certain vibe for the whole album. With The Beatles is a perfect example.

Agree with the above posts. A great listen. And @Necko: absolutely agree with you there 100%. It’s a gem. Actually,it amazes me that it’s not mentioned more when George’s best tracks are mentioned
