Dinosaur Album Guides presents the first installment in an exciting serialised collection of album guides. This is the first release in the series; ‘Please Please Me - The Album Guide’
With its lyrical themes of teen angst, insecurity, euphoric joy, love and depression, combined with the high octane rock ‘n’ roll of its loud guitars and trashy open high-hats, the release of ‘Please Please Me’ in March 1963 was a seminal moment in the history of British rock music. Its success at home paved the way for the Beatles` relentless evolution throughout 1963, culminating in their international explosion in 1964.
English artists were virtually unknown in the US prior to the British invasion (spearheaded by the Fab Four in 1964). The musical and cultural explosion which followed their breakthrough established British pop/rock (particularly alternative) as the dominating force in international music over the following 30-40 years. And it all began with ‘Please Please Me’.
Exactly which instruments were used during the recording of the album?
Who was the first artist to cover a song from the Fab Four?
What was John Lennon drinking when he recorded the riotous vocal on 'Twist And Shout'?
Who was the inspiration behind 'I Saw Her Standing There'?
Why was WEEDON a private word for anything totally uncool?
All this and more, in this unique Album Companion.
