The Beatles - Beatles For Sale (1964).

Beatles for Sale is the fourth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. It was released on 4 December 1964 in the United Kingdom on EMI's Parlophone label.

Again, Beatles For Sale did not surface as a regular album in the US until 1987. In its place was "Beatles '65" which featured eight songs from Beatles For Sale, plus the A and B-side of 'I Feel Fine' and 'I'll Be Back' from the UK 's 'A Hard Day's Night' album. This album enjoyed a nine week run at the top of the US charts beginning in January, 1965. This too made the position, which it held for six weeks.

Words Of Love (Remastered 2009). Авторы текста и музыки. Buddy Holly, Charles Hardin Holley.

Beatles for Sale is the fourth studio album by English rock band The Beatles, released on 4 December 1964 by Parlophone. It marked a departure from the ebullient tone that had characterised the band's previous work, partly due to their exhaustion after a series of tours that had established them as a worldwide phenomenon. Musically, it introduced darker moods and more introspective lyrics, with John Lennon adopting an autobiographical perspective on songs such as "I'm a Loser" and "No Reply".

Beatles For Sale, released in December 1964, is the band’s fourth British studio album. The title is one of Ringo’s lines, bemoaning all the demands and pressures now being made upon the group following Beatlemania. The four all felt the same way – that they were just goods, getting shipped around the world and offered for sale. Because it was such a rush job, they were unable to put together enough original compositions together in time to fill the album; they managed only eight, then threw in six written by other people to complete the track list

This is pretty much the sound I expected when I started their discography. While I don't dislike it, this album didn't really do much for me. It was fun for the most part, but it became extremely repetitive fairly quickly, and this is completely forgettable.

Beatles for Sale (along with Let it Be) is one of those Beatles records that Beatles fans love to hate while paradoxically still acclaiming it as a great record (The Beatles are on of the few acts that can get this kind of reaction from people). To me, it's one of my favorite Beatles records along with it's two predecessors, With the Beatles and A Hard Day's Night. Beatles for Sale shows the band exploring new lyrical territory thanks to the influence of Bob Dylan and the marijuana he introduced them to plus their own fatigue with a year and half's worth of near constant touring and performing and two straight years of immensely prolific recording, resulting in four legendary, groundbreaking albums and roughly a dozen classic stand alone singles. Naturally, this fatigue would show up in their music and it appears in several of the albums original songs such as No Reply, I'm a Loser, Baby's in Black, and I Don't Want to Spoil the Party and it even appears in few of their cover selections such both Carl Perkins covers Honey Don't (which sounds more like Elvis Presley than Carl Perkins) and Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby (which sounds more like Roy Orbison than Carl Perkins). Despite this, the album still manages to continue the fun of their previous albums, mostly in their cover selections such as Chuck Berry's Rock and Roll Music (as fantastically fun and wild as Chuck Berry's original), Little Richard's medley of Kansas City and his song Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey known as Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey and in their original Eight Days a Week while the ballad I'll Follow the Sun, is one of the albums few originals that is not angry, irritated, sad, fatigued or frustrated and is instead quite hopeful and optimistic. Beatles for Sale is underrated and often times divisive because of it's admittedly rather bi-polar/schizophrenic feel, but it's still remarkably consistent. If Beatles for Sale is one of their worst albums, then it's also one of their worst masterpieces because like it's predecessors, With the Beatles and A Hard Day's Night, it's a masterpiece.

By the looks of things, the Beatles had owned 1964. They had conquered America, had made a great movie, they had done so much in so little time, so it was no wonder the boys looked so drained and disheveled on the cover of Beatles For Sale. Beatles For Sale is a very good record, but it doesn't have the energy level of their first three albums. What it does have is their best songwriting to date and some of their more entertaining covers. The Dylan influence is also prevalent and their storytelling has become such a big part of who they are. The group also is not as dominated by the vision of John Lennon, Paul, George, and even Ringo add a flavor to the album that make the album worth the listen. Key tracks are No Reply, I'm A Loser, Baby's In Black, I'll Follow The Sun, Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Eight Days A Week, What You're Doing, and Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby.

This is the UK "father" of the US lps "Beatles 65" & "Beatles VI". I do admire the compiler back in the day at Capitol Records for keeping all the songs organized and ability to take these 14 songs & cobble them with a single & other songs & emerge with 2 full 11 track lps with no duplicates (early Stones lps had duplicates).Anyway no matter what form, another great batch of prime Beatle tunes, the US listeners although shorter lps, we got the singles included.

Some people might call this album a step backwards; the music isn't quite as exciting or exuberant as the previous three albums, and it marks a return to the 8-originals with 6-covers format of the first two albums. However, this is the album that laid the groundwork for what was to come.First off, this album marks the first divisions of the John Lennon-Paul McCartney songwriting partnership; the primary writer of any given Lennon-McCartney song would generally be its lead singer from this point forward. Also, the group were starting to take in new influences; in this case, they were adding folk music into the mix thanks to their new-found friendship with Bob Dylan. Dylan's reflection in Lennon's work was nearly immediate, thanks to tunes like "No Reply", "I'm a Loser", "Baby's In Black" and "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party". Indeed, his songs were taking on a darker, melancholy tone, and the subtle moodiness and introspection would persist and evolve as his career continued. Paul McCartney's work wasn't bad here, but his own songwriting wasn't yet reaching the maturity level of John's current material or his own later work. Nevertheless, you can hear the roots of his solo career in tracks like "I'll Follow the Sun" and "What You're Doing". The band shows more energy in the cover tunes, such as Chuck Berry's "Rock and Roll Music", Buddy Holly's "Words of Love", Little Richard's "Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey Hey" and the two Carl Perkins staples "Honey Don't" and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby". It's a shame they left off "Leave My Kitten Alone" as it would've made a fantastic addition to this album; it was finally released more than 30 years later on "Anthology 1".As relatively weak as this album is next to most of their other work, the Beatles still proved themselves light years ahead of everyone else here. And without even really putting in a lot of effort either. That's a scary thought.

Beatles For Sale. One needs only to look at the cover to tell what this album is all about. The bleak look on their faces coupled with the opening trio, "No Reply", "I'm A Loser", and "Baby's In Black" sets the tone right away. "No Reply" kicks the album off with John's double tracked growl and a powerfully melancholic wall of guitars. It than kicks into it's aggressive chorus as Paul joins John belting some very high notes and Ringo smashes his cymbals with great power. It only gets more intense as it reaches the bridge where McCartney gets even higher and louder! The two of them serve as excellent foils to each other on this song and "I'm A Loser" where McCartney lightens up Lennon's vocals. "I'm A Loser" is a blunt and honest song that serves as somewhat of a prelude to "Help!" lyrically. Their is a large amount of covers on this record. Some of which are excellent like "Rock n Roll Music" and "Honey Don't" a perfect song for Ringo. I personally don't mind "Mr. Moonlight" as I feel it fits the tone of the album and John delivers a great vocal performance. "Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby" however is in my opinion one of the worst Beatles recordings. George is poorly double tracked and it's a generally weak song and a low key way to close the album. Among the bleak John songs and numerous covers their are some excellent pop gems like "Eight Days A Week" and "I'll Follow The Sun". Add the single release "I Feel Fine" and you've got a nice selection of catchy feel good tunes! "Eight Days A Week" is pure Beatles Pop Perfection. Beatles For Sale is not a bad album. It contains a lot of gems and serves as an effective document of the effect of Beatlemania on the tired group. This album also paints a very clear picture and puts you into the setting seen on the cover. I hear "No Reply" and imagine walking through a park at sunset on a windy Fall's day.

The Beatles album number four BEATLES FOR SALE is better than their first two albums but not as good as the third album A HARD DAY'S NIGHT. As usual there is full of good songs, "I'm a Loser", "Eight Days a Week", "Every Little Thing" etc. Their third album had only their own songs but this album had cover songs, again. I like their covers also but their own songs are so much better. There is good, beautiful melodies and I like the lyrics too.
  • *Nameless*
Listened to in hindsight, it's easy now to hear in Beatles For Sale the sound of transition. Of course, from here on out pretty much every Beatles album represented a transition, but in Beatles for Sale one can literally witness both the band that they were (clever pop/rock like "Eight Days a Week" matched with Chuck Berry and Carl Perkins covers) and the artists they were becoming (folky tracks like "Baby's in Black" and "I'l Follow the Sun"). The best elements of both sides of the group are the ones I've just mentioned, and some of those are highlights of the Beatles' catalog. But there are also songs which appear to represent the creative slump that comes out of the kind of exhaustion and cynicism that the group might have been experiencing as 1964 drew to a close.
  • Beranyle
I don't think this is what The Beatles wanted as their finished project; it also does not help that at the time they were seen as a product to be sold to people. You have hints here and there on what The Beatles were trying to do, but under the circumstances of touring and Beatlemania -- the result was not up to the standard of their earlier works. They have definitely matured a bit, but in the end the album does not come together as well as it could have.
  • Jaiarton
The Beatles stumbled here despite some experimentation with recording effects and instrumentation, having failed to come up with more than a handful of solid songs by Christmas of 1964 - a de facto deadline imposed by commercial considerations (see title). John did contribute one brilliant, remarkably introspective number ("I'm A Loser"), but the other solid material broke little new ground ("Eight Days A Week"; "What You're Doing"). In desperation, the band fell back on cover versions of 50s rock standards by Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, and Chuck Berry, the most memorable being the latter's frantic "Rock And Roll Music." None of this could salvage the record, however, and some of the tracks ended up being among the most widely disliked by Beatles fans ("Mr. Moonlight").
  • Longitude Temporary
Beatles For Sale is a frustrating showing for the band, marred by the defects that had seemingly been conquered on their previous effort. The group's spectacular songwriting had proven to be their greatest asset, transfiguring their well intentioned covers into a chronic annoyance. Furthermore, on this outing even their stellar songwriting began to suffer a bit, most likely due to the inevitable burnout that arrives when you're expected to produce far too much good material in a short amount of time. Nonetheless that originals remain strong for the most part, guaranteeing that the album is at least pretty good, if not up to the group's recent standards. The album's often derided as a total misfire, but despite its myriad flaws this is far from the case, as even when the band falters they're still light years above most pop groups, and there are far too many good originals to wholly write the album off.
