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:

http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/.....ere.68047/

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

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.

I have this Canadian version with the extra "Don't" but there is no count or voice at the beginning.

The further one travels, the less one knows

This is a great song, especially for George's 1st writing credit.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

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.

All My Loving
Don't Bother Me
Little Child

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

Because alongside Here Comes The Sun and While My Guitar Gently Weeps it doesn’t look quite as good. Still sounds great. ahdn_george_08
