With the Beatles is the second studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. It was released on 22 November 1963 on Parlophone, exactly eight months after the band’s debut Please Please Me. Produced by George Martin, the album features eight original compositions (seven by Lennon–McCartney and “Don’t Bother Me”, George Harrison’s first recorded solo composition and his first released on a Beatles album) and six covers (mostly of Motown, rock and roll, and R&B hits). The cover photograph was taken by the fashion photographer Robert Freeman and has since been mimicked by several music groups over the years. A different cover was used for the Australian release of the album, which the Beatles were displeased with.

In the United States, the album’s tracks were unevenly split over the group’s first two albums released on Capitol Records: Meet the Beatles! and The Beatles’ Second Album. It was also released in Canada under the name Beatlemania! With the Beatles. The album was ranked number 420 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2003

Review: With the Beatles is a sequel of the highest order — one that betters the original by developing its own tone and adding depth. While it may share several similarities with its predecessor — there is an equal ratio of covers-to-originals, a familiar blend of girl group, Motown, R&B, pop, and rock, and a show tune that interrupts the flow of the album — With the Beatles is a better record that not only rocks harder, it’s considerably more sophisticated. They could deliver rock & roll straight (“I Wanna Be Your Man”) or twist it around with a little Latin lilt (“Little Child,” one of their most underrated early rockers); Lennon and McCartney wrote sweet ballads (the achingly gorgeous “All I’ve Got to Do”) and sprightly pop/rockers (“All My Loving”) with equal aplomb; and the propulsive rockers (“It Won’t Be Long”) were as richly melodic as slower songs (“Not a Second Time”). Even George Harrison’s first recorded song, “Don’t Bother Me,” is a standout, with its wonderfully foreboding minor-key melody. Since the Beatles covered so much ground with their originals, their covers pale slightly in comparison, particularly since they rely on familiar hits (only “Devil in Her Heart” qualifies as a forgotten gem). But for every “Roll Over Beethoven,” a surprisingly stiff reading of the Chuck Berry standard, there is a sublime moment, such as Lennon’s soaring interpretation of “You Really Got a Hold on Me,” and the group always turns in thoroughly enjoyable performances. Still, the heart of With the Beatles lies not in the covers, but the originals, where it was clear that, even at this early stage, the Beatles were rapidly maturing and changing, turning into expert craftsmen and musical innovators. — http://albumsbeforeyoudie.com/real-gambling-apps-australia-android/
