Help is far superior to BFS.

The title track, The Night Before, You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, Ticket To Ride, You're Gonna Lose That Girl, I've Just Seen A Face, Yesterday

It should also be noted that Beatoffs For Sale also has the opening one-two punch of Blow Reply and I'm A Luber, the Macca classic Who You're Screwing, as well as his controversial incest song I'll Fellate The Son.

Beatles For Sale is underrated. Not criminally so; the covers are rather unimpressive and nearly sink the album, but the heights of the album are ridiculous. The band took some huge strides as songwriters and storytellers with that record. That said, I adore Help, and consider it the best of the first five by a fair margin, superior even to A Hard Day's Night, which has some nondescript, unmemorable filler right alongside the classics (though you could argue this applies to any of their pre-Rubber Soul output). Plus, I'd take Help, Ticket To Ride, and Yesterday over anything on AHDN. But that's mostly splitting hairs; even AHDN is 4 star quality, and certainly worth purchasing again.

You're right about the covers weighing Beatles For Sale down, and side two isn't very impressive overall, but those first five songs (which include one of the good covers) to me top the better-known singles from A Hard Day's Night. And specifically, not that it has a lot of competition among McCartney's early work, but I'll Follow the Sun to me is his best pre-Rubber Soul composition.

I'll probably wind up getting Help when it's all said and done. Mainly because it has more music, and more originals.

Beatles For Sale is probably my favorite pre-Rubber Soul. I said it.

Ticket to Ride

That song nearly brings me to tears.

Definitely Top 10 or 15 material for me. I think I actually typed up a Top 15 on here not too long ago but it would be too hard to find it.

It was pretty recent, from what I remember.

Maybe the MIS-TORIAN could help you, but I wouldn't count on it.

That is cool that you can do all of the CDs at once though. So if they do have them all in stock, I guess the thing to do is by 12 of them together, get your $30 in GC, then go back and get the two doubles and use those GCs against them so they are free. That's what, $144? That would work. And then you still have one final $5 GC for something later.

If they have all of them, that is. Who knows how many copies they will have of the earlier, less popular albums.
I know for sure that in my store they're doing a checklane full. And really, if something winds up selling out before I get mine (doubtful), it's still a good deal on the ones that are there, y'know? I do know that in my store they're doing two separate entire endcaps for the remasters, so there has to be a lot. We'll see on Wednesday! As for using the gift cards themselves for the remaster, I'll go the laz route there.

I can't come up with a top ten because I really haven't listened to those albums enough.

There really aren't any discographies more worthy of exploration.

My dad's favorite is "All You Need is Love," which I've never fully understood. It's great and everything and you can't help but love the sentiment, but I really can't fathom putting it into a top 15 or 20 or whatever.

Obviously, that's no slight against anyone's lists.
