Just to point out that on the original 45rpm release of 'Love Me Do' in Britain -- The Beatles' first chart hit in the UK -- it was in fact Ringo playing drums, not Andy White. (However, Andy White plays drums on the B-side, "PS I Love You").

A few months later, when the Beatles' first album (Please Please Me) was assembled, 10 new tracks were recorded in one day, and added to 4 pre-existing masters, which comprised the previously released 'PS I Love You', 'Please Please Me', 'Ask Me Why'... and the previously unreleased "Love Me Do" with Andy White on drums (and Ringo on rather loud tambourine).

Yet more confusing -- when the US single of "Love Me Do" was issued in early 1964, Tollie Records chose the LP-track with Andy White instead of the previously issued single with Ringo.

So, in sum, the original single is Ringo. The album track and the US-single are Andy White.

(Anthology also issued the Pete Best "Love Me Do", from The Beatles' first-ever trip to EMI and Abbey Road -- the drumming on it is truly awful.)

Happy Birthday Revolver!

Still one of my all time favourite albums.

50 years ago today, the Beatles performed their last paid concert at Candlestick Park.

All summer I've been listening to basically nothing but this band and their solo work and it's just the greatest music ever made.

I've been reading through a book by a man named MacDonald that chronicles all of the Beatles' studio recordings and gives detailed insight into the recording processes and then he usually goes on to give his own opinion of each track which is fun to read. I recommend it. It's called "Revolution in the Head" (which also happens to be a Girls Aloud song title).

I've known this band's music my entire life and it's so satisfying to revisit it all with new eyes and ears after a few years of growing up. I'll be revisiting these albums with pleasure until the day I die.

Beatles forever.

had a similar experience last summer, it was like rediscovering them all over again. i could hear lots of musical and lyrical subtleties i couldn't pick up when i was younger and it was great. i've been meaning to check out revolution in the head but it's never in the book stores here and i never think to order books online.

Beatlesongs, an earlier book, was my bible for a while. Also spends a lot of time on the recordings but also goes to great lengths to hash out who wrote how much of each song, parse their meanings, etc. There are also a lot of quotes from the band members, particularly Lennon, who apparently in one Playboy interview commented on almost every song they recorded. One of my favorites is in response to the mention of "Honey Pie":

LENNON: (laughs) I don't even want to think about that one.

Yeah I've seen a ton of references to a Lennon Playboy interview from 1980, I believe. That might be the one you're talking about.

I should be more familiar with the solo albums than I am. You've got at least three great ones in there in Plastic Ono Band, Ram, and All Things Must Pass.

Ram might have some great stuff on it, but it also has its share of typical, insufferable Macca moments.

all things must pass isn't even in the same league as any other solo Beatle albums. it's like comparing the white album to beatles for sale.
