I love this album.  It is criminally underrated.  With The Beatles does a much better job than PPM of capturing the spirit and sound of the early Beatles.

I'm not even gonna try, but wanna gloat that in Canada our version came out approx. 2 days after "With The The Beatles" in November 1963 with the exact song list, just a different LP cover and only in mono.

Here goes again!

I'm gonna add an "And why" to each song as well! a-hard-days-night-john-6

1. All My Loving - One of my favorite early Beatle songs, and though it doesn't hold a candle to I Saw Her Standing There, it's still absolutely incredible. John's triplet chords are as difficult as all hell to play correctly, George's awesome solo shows lots of country picking influence, and the bass line is very interesting from the bass man. The harmonies in the last verse are fun as well. Great tune all around.

2. All I've Got To Do - I would put this as one of the most underrated early Beatle tracks of all time. The linear drumming from Ringo and bass chords from Paul really shine as creative concepts which I felt should have been explored more. One of my favorite early Beatle tracks.

3. It Won't Be Long - This album had three brilliant songs up front. Full of explosive energy and driving force, plus a great guitar riff, this song punches you right in the face at the start of the album and doesn't let up for the entire 2:14.

4. Please Mister Postman - I've heard people say that this pro forma cover of the Marvellettes song is a bit by the numbers and thus unworthy of praise. I disagree. This song is great, and certainly the best cover on the album. John's vocals really conveys the angst one might feel, and the backing vocals by Paul and George are just great. I could listen to this song all day long.

5. You Really Got A Hold On Me - Smokey Robinson can write a song, and the Beatles can play a song. Winning combination all the way around. Even the off hand version from the Let it Be film captures the same vibe. Imagine if they had taken it seriously, re recording the track with Billy Preston on keys. Fantastic.

6. 'Till There Was You - Paul has the most beautiful voice of the band, and it shines through here. Such a pretty song, and George's solo takes it away.

7. Roll Over Beethoven - Chuck Berry's version is better. Even so, the Beatles make it rock. Personally, the best version of this song I have heard comes from the Washington Coliseum show in '64. Technical difficulties aside, that one is even better than Chuck Berry's version, in my opinion.

8. Devil In Her Heart - A nice track. I like the Live At The BBC Version better. Still good.

9. I Wanna Be Your Man - Ringo rips it up on this rocker. Still, this one sounds dated, moreso than other tracks on the record.

10. Money - Not my favorite version of Barry Gordy's hit, but passable. If any track was done pro forma on this album, this is it. I prefer the version played by Lennon at the 1969 Toronto concert simply because it places the song in a different light, a much heavier, raunchier light. This version still features a great vocal performance by John, better than the Toronto one, by far.

12. Don't Bother Me - I hate to place this song so low, since I love George's compositions, but this one is just too early. There is no indication on this track that the author would eventually release Something, Here Comes The Sun, and All Things Must Pass. He probably should have worked on this one a little more.

13. Not A Second Time - I had to go back and listen to this one. It's just unmemorable to me, not necessarily bad, but nothing special either. 

14. Hold Me Tight - Same boat as Not A Second Time. Not a terrible song, but just unmemorable. The chorus feels like it might go somewhere, but then never does. 

15. Little Child - Feels like a hold over from Please Please Me. I dislike this song, mostly for the harmonica.

 

I hope I wasn't too hard on this record. I really do love it, and I consider it to be an early gem of the Beatles, often overlooked for its superior successor A Hard Day's Night. Great music from a great band.

  1. You Really Got A Hold On Me This is a great example of how the Beatles could cover a song in their own way. It actually doesn't matter that it was written by someone else.
  2. All I've Got To Do Unsurpassable singing by John over the most deceptive backing, which is complete Ringo.
  3. It Won't Be Long I just love that dumb guitar riff. And that middle eight.
  4. Please Mr Postman Again, what a great way to transplant Motown, perfect with Ringo's swinging beat.
  5. Money (That's What I Want) Completely off the wall, those backup vocals are freaky.
  6. All My Loving The lyrical idea is great but it gets a little rote for me.
  7. Till There Was You This is Paul reducing the room to puddles.
  8. Hold Me Tight Yeah its hokey. Yeah it's fun.
  9. Roll Over Beethoven George's song, everybody twist!
  10. I Wanna Be Your Man Not a great success and they gave it to the Stones too, so don't know why it's here other than they ran out of stuff.
  11. Devil In Her Heart The filler from here on out. All competently done and forgettable.
  12. Not A Second Time
  13. Don't Bother Me
  14. Little Child

Heh, that was my scientific opinion based on the kind of ballads Paul writes and concerts full of screaming. :D

That was harder than I thought. It really is a wonderful album. Then again, I adore all early Beatles albums. The later ones should be easier for me. Or not...

1) All My Loving -- terrific performance all around -- great vocal by Paul, super rhythm work by John (he's as underrated as a guitarist as George is as a writer), excellent C&W solo from George

2) Don't Bother Me -- one of George's best-ever compositions -- interesting rhythm, great vibe, I love the start-stop nature of the song

3) Money -- there's that fantastic Leathery Lennon Larynx screaming out of my speakers again

4) Please Mr Postman -- another super cover -- amazing how these guys could turn other people's songs into Real Beatles Songs

5) Roll Over Beethoven -- and another great cover

6) It Won't Be Long -- great album opener

7) All I've Gotta Do -- reminds me of "Anna" on the first album -- great vocal from John

8) I Wanna Be Your Man -- I love the whole vibe of this song -- perfectly matched to Ringo's voice

9) You Really Got A Hold On Me -- great version of Smoky Robinson's classic

10) Til There Was You -- I love the acoustic guitars in this, especially George's solo

11) Hold Me Tight -- I like the backing more than I do the vocal -- not one of Paul's best performances

12) Little Child -- it's okay but nothing special -- I don't think it was edited well either -- the harmonica disappears awfully fast!

13) Not A Second Time -- not the most memorable song on the album

14) Devil In Her Heart -- an interesting recording but the song itself is a bit boring

I've got nothing to say, but it's okay..

GOOD MORNING!

GOOD MORNING!!

  1. Please Mister Postman - I feel a little bad for putting a cover in the top spot, but I just love it. I really like John's vocals on this one (as I do with almost every other early Beatles song on which Lennon sings).
  2. All I've Got To Do
  3. It Won't Be Long
  4. You Really Got A Hold On Me
  5. All My Loving
  6. Money (That's What I Want)
  7. Not A Second Time
  8. I Wanna Be Your Man
  9. Roll Over Beethoven
  10. Devil In Her Heart
  11. Little Child
  12. Don't Bother Me - I wish I could place it higher, since it's pretty good and also the first Beatles song (released at least) written by George. 
  13. Hold Me Tight - There is really nothing special about this song, I think. Every other song on this album affects me emotionally in some way, while this one just is there.
  14. Till There Was You - There is so much in this song that just bothers me: the lyrics, the melody, the way Paul sings it (especially how he sings "sarrr them winging"). I know that it is supposed to be beautiful and romantic, but I just cannot relate to it.

I love every Beatles song but there are definitely favorites and least favorites.

 

1.) Not A Second Time - One of my favorite Beatles songs. I love the vocals on this and wished they would've performed it live.

 

2.) It Won't Be Long - Possibly one of my favorite album openers ever. I'm still baffled as to why they didn't release this as a single or at least a b-side.

 

3.) Don't Bother Me - One of my favorite George songs that gets beaten by fans. This is a great "first song" by George.

 

4.) All I've Got To Do - This used to be my favorite song on the album. I love the pauses and stops throughout the song.

 

5.) Devil In Her Heart - This is another song that I've seen appear on Beatles worst and I have no idea why. The vocals and guitar on this song are great.

 

6.) Little Child - A fun simple rocker. It was originally meant for Ringo and I'm glad he didn't sing it. I don't think his vocals would've fit the song.

 

7.) Hold Me Tight - Another song that gets a lot of hate because of Paul's vocals. This also used to be my favorite song but it's definitely lost its luster.

 

8.) Till There Was You - A song that is very reminiscent of A Taste Of Honey. It's a nice little tune.

 

9.) All My Loving - A song that people would probably rank higher but I think it's too overplayed. This song was playing at the hospital John Lennon was brought to when he was shot.

 

10.) You Really Got A Hold On Me - Not much to say About this one. It used to be my favorite on the album but it fell out of favor.

 

11.) Please Mister Postman -  Most of the covers on this album are alright but definitely not my favorites. This song never was my favorite and wouldn't be in my favorite Beatles covers either.

 

12.) Roll Over Beethoven - Besides George's vocals and guitar playing this song is rather repetitive and boring. 

 

13.) I Wanna Be Your Man - I love Ringo but this is probably one of the most filler songs they ever recorded.

 

14.) Money (That's What I Want) - I was NEVER a fan of this song. It's probably one of my least favorite Beatles songs. I do love it but it's easily one of my least favorites by the group.
