best band ever

no one can ever replace them
It's amazing as good as they were The Beatles did not include most of these songs on the British LP catalog........
I love the Beatles
But last week I bought 13 songs off of this album and then it said I only have to pay $3.22 to complete it. So I got three ten dollar iTunes gift cards and the first thing I got was the rest of this album supposedly for $3.22 but now all I have left is 8 dollars. In total I bought this album for about 40 dollars, when everyone else paid 20.
Why is it in stereo?
I don't like that these are only offered in stereo, as the originals for the early songs were recorded in mono, the vocals are only in the right speaker, while the instruments are in the left, but there is an awful echo in the left speaker. I bought the mono cd version of this release, and I enjoy it so much more. I wish iTunes would offer both stereo and mono.
The Beatles are the best band ever! Yeah, I like 60s music, but whatever! I can't get enough of this album!!!
Great Music should be in every collection
These songs are indispensable. Most of these songs are not on any albums--of the original albums, that is, not compilations, etc. And there is no doubt the Beatles and producer George Martin culled the A+ material for singles.
Of course a few of these songs appeared originally as material for B sides, EPs and filler songs for the American albums but even then, there are gems such as "I'm Down", "Bad Boy" or "I Call Your Name"
If you don't know some of these songs, but know of the Beatles and their greatness, you cannot go wrong buying this entire collection. It will provide limitless enjoyment.
And, as an aside I agree with earlier comment by the person talking about mono vs. stereo. I could make countless comparisons, almost all in favor of the mono mixes which as he points out are what the Beatles approved and others did the stereo mixes.
But one will do...I have in my collection both an original British Parlophone 45 of "Paperback Writer" in mono and the stereo mix on a first generation pressing of "The Beatles Again", which was quickly renamed "Hey Jude" BTW, in general, that album sounds great.
But the difference between the mono mix on the 45 and the stereo on the LP could not be more profound The mono "Paperback Writer" rocks...hard. The guitar, drums and bass are jarring and forceful when they enter after the initial vocal. The stereo mix, sure it's the same song but sounds like a different conception, softer, the guitar is mixed down, and the vocals are more prominent. I wish I could demo it for you all...really it is not a subtle difference.
This boy my favorite song
That boy took my love away
Oh, he'll regret it someday
But this boy wants you back again
That boy isn't good for you
Though he may want you too
This boy wants you back again
Oh, and this boy would be happy
Just to love you, but oh my
That boy won't be happy
Till he's seen you cry
This boy wouldn't mind the pain
Would always feel the same
If this boy gets you back again
This boy, this boy, this boy
Do I even need to explain why it deserves 5 stars?
By someone that isnt you
It is all of the great songs that never were released on UK LP's. A must have for a Beatle fan and a must get for a person new to the Beatles.
great addition to a great collection
I know im 16 but these albums are worth buying to start getting into this AWESOME band
