The Beatles second album in 1963, is a definitive masterpiece! My personal favorite although they didnt write the song is You Really Got a Hold on Me and Not a Second Time is very advanced sounding for 1963 rock music.

||The genesis of "A Hard Day's Night"|
While this album continues the formula for "Please Please Me", by combining some original compositions with covers of other songs, this is the album where the covers were lesser songs than the originals. And this includes such chestnuts as "Roll Over Beethoven", a very popular song with early rock-and-roll fans. Here, the Beatles showed that they made their own songs, and they could make their own stuff better than they could make somebody else's stuff. Indeed, it changed the course of pop music, but it was a breath of fresh air that led to the creative explosion of the sixties, and the rest, as they say, is history. People sometimes slash at these early albums, claiming that they weren't musically or artistically good, but this was ground-breaking stuff back when it was released. People needed to see what they could do with the genre of rock, and these "Beatlemania" albums were the genesis of that. All part of the historical build-up to "Sgt. Pepper" and the cultural "Summer Of Love", as the latter part of the decade was called. Without these early steps, that artistic flowering would not have happened. If you like rock, you might want to pay respects to its origins by buying this album. You might like it.

||There was a reason for Beatlemania|
Considering how huge and influential the Beatles would become in the next few years, this album from 1963 cannot be dismissed. Here they are not as the superstars they would become, but as four very talented young British musicians and you can hear that they are a force to be reckoned with. Not a "boy band" by any means, they were devoted students of the early rock 'n roll giants, while keeping in tune with the changing times and reflected these influences in their finely-crafted songwriting. Flashes of brilliance for McCartney in "All My Lovin" and "Til There Was You", while Lennon's "All I've Got to Do" and especially "Not A Second Time" are hauntingly beautiful. Harrison's lead vocals on "Devil in Her Heart" make it an overlooked classic. The Beatles earned their success, it wasn't handed to them.

This is the best album ever, not a bad song on here AT ALL! Classic. They put the right songs on this album and released it at the right time, which had secured their fame in England.

||A Revolutionary Masterpiece from November 1963|
The reviewer from Los Angeles says it wonderfully. In Canada this was our introduction to The Beatles. Roll Over Beethoven/Please Mister Postman the first single to be aired on Montreal radio stations. This was during that nightmarish period when President JFK was assassinated in Dallas. This album arrived at our door on a rainy late autumn day delivered by one of the local department stores. I remember removing the packaging and seeing those 4 somber faces before a black backdrop. Turned the cover over and began matching names to faces and figuring out who played which instruments and sang which tunes. Difficult to believe there actually was a time in my life when John Paul George and Ringo were not household names. At the time I was a big Del Shannon fan and still am, these four guys were right up there with him or came pretty close. To place things in perspective, before The Beatles songs like 'Sugar Shack' were at the very top of the charts and 45rpm flip sides were in most instances throw away recordings never to be played or taken seriously. People such as Del Shannon, Roy Orbison and The Beatles changed all that. Still love The Beatles entire catalogue and feel that same pang of emotion each time I hear the intro to Please Please Me... The Beatles (with all their success) must be one of the most underrated bands in history. And they are to blame entirely... for making it appear too easy.
