THE BEATLES: Help! : 12” Vinyl LP Album 33 RPM # PCSO 3071 Fab
The Beatles: John Lennon (vocals,
guitar, electric piano); Paul McCartney (vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass);
George Harrison (vocals, guitar); Ringo Starr (vocals, drums).
Additional personnel: George Martin
HELP was the last Beatles album to
feature a cover version (Larry Williams's "Dizzy Miss Lizzie"), and
is considered a turning point in the quality of their songwriting. Like the
previous album's "Im a Loser," "You've Got To Hide Your Love
Away" was Lennon's nod to the influence of Bob Dylan. McCartney's gift for
melody was obvious in "I've Just Seen A Face." And Harrison's
songwriting contributions grew to two tracks.
Instrumentally, "Ticket To
Ride"'s off-beat rhythm was Ringo's masterpiece, while the string quartet
in the huge hit "Yesterday" was unusual for a rock band at that time;
it was the start of a stellar series of McCartney ballads with strings
("Eleanor Rigby," "She's Leaving Home").
Entertainment Weekly (10/12/01, p.34)
- Ranked #33 in EW's "100 Best Movie Soundtracks" - "...A mind-blowing
slew of verging-on-adulthood Fab gems..."
Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, p.65) -
Included in Mojo's "100 Coolest Movie Soundtracks" - "...Pop
music this good has rarely been written for the movies."
Paste (magazine) (p.59) - "It
set the stage for one of the most ground-breaking and innovative periods in The
Beatles' career, not to mention pop music in general."
The title track is my favourite song
of their early period and other great ones are 'The Night Before', 'Yesterday'
and 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away'. George Harrison managed to get a song
on here with 'I Need You'. All in all a very good effort from the fab four.
