EDITORS’ NOTES

Following A Hard Day's Night and a globe-trotting tour, Beatles For Sale debuted in 1964. The band's fourth album touches on two sides of the band's personality. The Beatles were exploring new musical and lyrical ideas as heard in the folk rock-tinged, poetic lyrics of "Eight Days a Week" and "I'll Follow the Sun." John Lennon provided a mixture of melancholy and melody on the opening tracks "No Reply" and "I'm a Loser." On the flip side, they were still knocking out fiery renditions of their favorite rock 'n' roll classics, such as "Rock and Roll Music" and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby.”

Very underrated

My guess is this will be one of the lowest selling albums on iTunes. Still I view it as as a must buy. It marks an important point as the group wrapped up a chaotic 1964 and moved on to grow as a musical group. Personal favorites include Every Little Thing, No Reply and I'm a Loser.

A favorite !

As I recall, this album was originally titled "Beatles '65". In the LP days, you listened to an album from beginning to end. With this record, each song was better than the previous one. "No Reply", "I'm a Loser", "I'll Follow the Sun", "Eight Days a Week" and "Every Little Thing" being my favorites. Even hearing Ringo's voice on "Honey Don't" was fun. Great addition for a true Beatles fan !

My favorite transitional record

This record is the dividing line between the moptops and deeply serious and thoughtful songwriters.

You can hear individual voices become more clear as John and Paul start to write more on their own - the beginning of the end??
