The Beatles - Beatles For Sale

A Forgotten Rock and Pop Classic

The Beatles' Forgotten Rock and Pop Classic.

We had a lot of fun reading The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions, which details the band's studio history from 1962 - 1970. In the book, George Martin mentions that he felt this album was a rush job and that he has trouble listening to it to this day. As much respect as we have for The Fifth Beatle, we couldn't disagree more. For Sale is simply wonderful.

As we played copy after copy for our shootout, the more enjoyable these 14 Folk Rock songs became. Repeated listening to track after track only enhanced our appreciation. And as is always the case, stumbling upon the Shootout Winning copy was a thrill that allowed us to hear more in the music than we ever thought possible.

Product Detail

This isn't the kind of record that beats you over the head with mega pop hits sure to enthrall screaming teens. With wonderful songs like I'll Follow The Sun, Eight Days A Week, I Don't Want To Spoil The Party and What You're Doing, this album gives you a glimpse at the more heartfelt side of the band. It's an extremely sweet, delicate album and a superb copy like this lets you fully appreciate that.

Of all the Beatle records that we play around here, this, along with Abbey Road and perhaps Please Please Me, isne of the most enjoyable shootouts because the music is so good and hasn't been beaten to death with overplaying. You might even call it the undiscovered album. Everyone knows The White Album and Sgt. Pepper's like the back of their hands, but what about Beatles For Sale? If more people had Hot Stamper pressings of this LP, we guarantee you'd hear a lot more about this album. When the sound is this good, this album is MAGICAL.

AMG 5 Star Review

There are some important changes on Beatles for Sale, most notably Lennon's discovery of Bob Dylan and folk-rock. The opening three songs, along with "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party," are implicitly confessional and all quite bleak, which is a new development... Its best moments find them moving from Merseybeat to the sophisticated pop/rock they developed in mid-career.

Right right-line
