Revision as of 14:57, 25 March 2006

When "With The Beatles" was released in England on November 22, 1963, not many American's were even aware of its release, or The Beatles for that matter, and had it been released in the US at this same time, it may have gone unnoticed, at least for a while, what with its release coinciding with one of America's darkest days; the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The counterpart in America to "With The Beatles," was "Meet The Beatles!" The albums had similarities, as the cover picture was the same, yet they contained many different tracks. With the British releases, all albums had fourteen tracks to the American counterparts twelve. Additionally, album titles were different until the release of "Sgt. Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band." This is discussed in further detail in one of my earlier articles: The Beatles, Their History, Their Songs and What They Mean, 1957-1970.

First, let's take a look at the American version, "Meet The Beatles!" This album was dubbed by Capitol Records as "The First Album by England's Phenomenal Pop Combo." This is not exactly true. What Capitol Records probably meant was this was the first album by The Beatles on Capitol Records. The Beatles' first releases in America before "Meet The Beatles," were three singles (45 rpm) and one album.

The first single released in America was Please Please Me/Ask Me Whyon February 25,1963 on Vee-Jay Records; the next was From Me To You/Thank You Girl on May 27, 1963 on Vee-Jay Records, and She Loves You/I'll Get You on September 16, 1963 on Swan Records. Their first album was titled "Introducing The Beatles," released on July 22, 1963 also on Vee-Jay Records. However, successful in England, these records never quite caught on, until December 26, 1963 when they released "I Want To Hold Your Hand/I Saw Her Standing There as a single on Capitol Records, and on this same day, released the album "Meet The Beatles." From this point Beatlemania started, and the delirium continued. When The Beatles came to America for their first visit, and their appearance of The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964, it was a complete accident and luck that this appearance happened to coincide with having a number one song,"I Want To Hold Your Hand." This was the first time a British group had truly conquered America.

Many of the songs on "With The Beatles," and "Meet The Beatles," were the same. The difference was that the British version contained five songs that were not on the American version, and all not written by The Beatles. They are: "Please Mister Postman; Roll Over Beethoven; You Really Got A Hold On Me; Devil In Her Heart, and Money. Conversely, "Meet The Beatles," contained "I Want To Hold Your Hand, I Saw Her Standing There, and This Boy that was not on "With The Beatles."

As discussed in more detail in my above referenced article, many of the albums released in America and Britain can get somewhat confusing, before Sgt. Pepper. There are many reasons for this. First, as said, the American albums had twelve tracks to the British fourteen. In England, The Beatles released 22 singles, 14 EP's (extended play 45 rpm's, that contained usually four tracks, but at times five and six), and 13 albums. In America, The Beatles released 32 singles, 20 albums, and a few EP's. These totals are from the first releases through "Let It Be." Other albums did follow both in America and in England, but these were collections of previously released songs. In England, The Beatles' first album was "Please Please Me," which they had five years to prepare for. Following this, with the release of "With The Beatles," they had about five months to prepare.

In the early days, both John and Paul in writing their songs, seemed to have a sense of what worked in America, that is, where it appeared as though they were singing their songs personally to each and every girl. That is why most of these earlier songs dealt with love, teen-romance, relationships, etc. Songs like "I Want To Hold Your Hand, From Me To You, Thank You Girl, I'll Get You, P.S. I Love You, and others, made the female audience feel as though The Beatles were singing these to them. Also, in their earlier days at the Cavern Club and others, The Beatles sang to an intimate audience, many of whom they got to know. Upon the emergence of Beatlemania, they could no longer maintain this intimate relationship with their fans. Now, they had to be smuggled in and out of events by the police, and became popular in parts of the world that they scarcely knew, and would never visit. Each song on "With The Beatles," and "Meet The Beatles," that Lennon and McCartney wrote had the same basic theme, love. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, etc. Regardless, of a repetitive theme, "With The Beatles," and "Meet The Beatles," are two of my favorite albums. They are the core Beatles, that sound that has made them the greatest band in the history of recorded music. All Songs by Lennon and McCartney, unless otherwise noted. Written mostly by Lennon, this song was intended as a follow up to the success of "She Loves You," and the yeah yeah yeah chorus, as well as the play on words and double meanings -like was done in "Please Please Me." Lennon wrote this as an echo of his own life, being lonely, waiting for the girl to return that walked out on him, to come back and make him happy again. It seems that many of Lennon's songs that dealt with broken relationships were not necessarily fueled by romances that didn't work out. In this youth he felt lonely and dejected. His father left him as a child, and in effect, he was dejected again when his mother turned him over to her sister, John's Aunt Mimi to raise him. Then, in 1958, his mother was killed when she was struck by an automobile. Lennon thought and rightfully so, that he lost his mother twice. It was recorded on July 30, 1963.
