The Beatles

the beatlesThis week I got a couple of Beatles Remasters, released in 2009 that I was able to buy at a recent sale. Well you know, even though a lot of their stuff was released before I was even born, I really dig their stuff. I mean, the sixties, and still a lot of people cite them!

Previously I had some of their output on LP (…for you youngsters, this is like a big black CD…) and on CD only the famous blue and red compilations. So owning some more on CD, with all the extended booklets, is quite nice.
I prefer the second half of their career (starting with Rubber Soul) and am amazed at how these remasters sound. Just realizing they did practically invent multi-tracking with all their wild and crazy ideas is kind of mind blowing. Makes me wanna buy all that stuff on CD, but alas my wallet won´t let me. Anyway, will soon hit play on CD 2 of the white album again and then it is on to Abbey Road. “You Never Give Me Your Money”  anyone? 😉

  1. Peter,
    Hey. It’s totally fab and gear you dig the Beatles. I was 14 when they hit and fell for them mucho grande. “You Never Give Me Your Money, you only give me your funny papers.” God, by the time Abbey Road dropped I was in college and it was the sound track to our lives. She was SO heavy.
    I would suggest though not to ignore a bunch of the earlier work. The first three albums released here in the States are amazing too. Meet The Beatles contains besides ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand,’ ‘This Boy,’ ‘Not a Second Time,’ and ‘All My Loving.’
    Their second album, The Beatles Second Album has incredible covers, ‘Roll Over Beethoven,’ ‘Please Mister Postman,’ and the absolute killer ‘You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me’ ripped apart by John Lennon.
    The third one, Something New Something New contains another Chuck Berry gem ‘Rock n Roll Music’ and the Lennon-McCartney, ‘When I Get Home.’ Whatever chemicals anybody was taking sure have kicked in because this stuff sounds to me even fresher today. Oh and turn it up!

    1. Hey Tim,
      nice read, thanks for sharing!
      Oh, I like what I know about the first period, I just feel the second half is more exciting in ways of exploring and writing.
      I agree with what you say.
      Yet first things first, so I still need to pick up some of the later stuff they did.

      How is going with you musically?

      Cheers, Peter
