    Monaural Vinyl Lives!

    Here's a surprise, a monaural vinyl LP that sounds absolutely fantastic. That it's the Beatles from 1963 is even more impressive. What a treat to re-acquire this LP after 46 years (yes I was there). I hope all of their albums come out on monaural vinyl LP and Barnes&Noble carries them. Do not be shy of monaural. This is the way it was originally recorded and the re-mastering bring out all of the band's expertise. Nothing is hidden or compressed here in mono. Give us more mono Beatles on vinyl LP Barnes&Noble.

    Early Beatles!

    I'm not sure if this album by the Beatles is everyone's particular cup of tea. Who drinks tea anymore anyhow? I think my dad does. Never the less, you're certain to get up and spontaneously dance to the Lennon/McCartney numbers on hand here. I SAW HER STANDING THERE is worth the price of admission. And I'll admit, my grandmother even liked that one and she's 94!

    Just the beginning...

    You can definitely tell that this is the Beatles first album without even listening to the record. Just looking at the back cover (which shows that not all of the songs were their own compositions) does. And you can definitely tell when you listen to the album which songs Lennon/McCartney did or did not write. I'm not saying it's a bad album at all, some of their greatest simply rock songs are on this CD. It shows just a glimmer of what is yet to come out of this group, but considering it's a debut album, it's a great one!

    The debut album that set the standard for all others

    What is so impressive about the Beatles' debut is that they sound so tight and professional on this record especially given their lack of experience in the studio. While I tend to prefer the American versions of the Beatles' LPs to their British counterparts, I make an exception for A Hard Day's Night & this record. The American counterparts, Introducing the Beatles & the Early Beatles, simply cannot hold a candle to Please Please Me. The excitement of their stage show is evident, especially on "I Saw Her Standing There" & "Twist & Shout." But there are other gems here as well, "Misery" & "There's a Place" are two of the best earliest Lennon-McCartney compositions and, as with many of the Beatles' covers, John Lennon's poignant reading of Arthur Alexander's "Anna" and George Harrison's impressive lead vocal on the Shirelle's "Baby its You" eclipse their respective original versions. It is a testament to this album's greatness that even its "weakest" moments: "Love Me Do," "P.S. I Love You," and "Do You Want to Know a Secret?" transcend the whole concept of filler ("A Taste of Honey," now that is another story) and still far surpass much that passed for pop or even rock n roll music in 1963. This record is a must have for any collection. Even if you own any or both of the American counterparts, you simply must buy this record if you do not already own it. Please, Please Me is a fine beginning to a fine career.

    Please Please Me!

    This is a very good album. I think that it is a good representation of the ealy Beatle sound. Please Please Me features many great songs, including "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Twist and Shout", and "P.S. I Love You". I love John's harmonica in "Love Me Do" and the vocals of "Do You Want To Know A Secret" and "P.S. I Love You". The fun dance beat of "Twist and Shout" makes it a total Beatles classic, even though it is not a Bealte original. This is a great CD!! Three thumbs up!

    Listener: 15-Year-Old Beatles fan

    This is a FUN album! You can really feel the exictement and humor from what you hear in their performance of every track. Every track is just fun, enjoyable and full of life. I don't think there was a band out there at the time that could produce and make a debut album as good as this one! There are some really great cover songs on this album! I highly recommend this album to everyone, but especially to kids my age, because I feel that they can relate to this album, and besides the tracks are very exciting, fun, and full of life, and besides, we don't know of a band that's anything close to The Beatles, so if your about my age I think you'd really enjoy it. I highly recommend it.

    1 Album in 1 Day!

    In 1963, George Martin wanted the Beatles to record an album. They recorded ''Please Please Me'' all in 1 day -- amazing. The Beatles, in this album, present studio versions of the songs they performed live, at the Cavern and so on. ''Twist and Shout'' is interesting -- John's voice was about to tear because it was the last track on the record, and they'd been recording all day, but it's neat to hear on the album itself. There is a very clean, fresh studio version of ''I Saw Her Standing There''; not that the live version was bad, but the recording was not as fresh. (A live version can be found on Anthology 1.) All things considered, this is a great album.

    PURE GENIUS!

    Having had the practice and experience through their careers along with compositional genius,they finally got their chance to prove it, recording Love me Do as the first single and then Please Please me as their second single and having almost instant success. This album to me was visionary, with a very fresh sound, so visionary that it influenced the music scene through the years that followed and beyond. The Beatles kept reinventing themselves and succeeding as we all know. The perfect vocal harmonies and the energy is what stands out in this record for me. They were meant to sing together. The only way to describe the album for me is PURE GENIUS!

    Will Never Die!

    It's hard to imagine now, with all the exotic digital multi-tracking and months in the studio that has become the 'norm' for today's rock, but here you have an entire album recorded and nearly finished in a single day! [with the exception of John's 'drop-in' harmonica bits and George Martin's even now imaginative 'wound up piano' overdub on 'Misery' and celeste on 'Baby it's You'] It had to be the most efficient 13 hours ever spent in a recording studio. The early 1963 simple twin-track recording conditions that necesitated a nearly 'live performance' blessed ours and generations yet to follow ears with an infectious raw energy, that today's sophisticated multi-tracked productions often totally lack. An unbelievable beginning for yet was to follow!
