That's interesting.  I think most references play down the importance of albums prior to the mid 60s and give the impression it was just a way to repackage the popular singles. And the Beatles first two singles went on an album named after their number one hit. Which I thought was the more common practice.

It's possible there were different approaches and the Beatles just adopted primarily the no single on album one. As they were the most famous it became associated with them.
It surprised me. From what I can see the shadows, cliff,billy fury and lonnie donegan all released single free albums. Even the tornadoes, with a uk single the first to to top the us charts, omitted it from their only album.
So in fact bunging two singles on their debut actually makes The Beatles look a little remiss. Naughty Beatles!

A hard days night. Gets better.. funnier and more magical every single watch.

It is wonderful. And we're lucky we can watch it whenever we want. Imagine those kids back in '64 who saw them on the big screen, but only for as many times as they could manage before it left the theater. I'm sure they probably missed a lot of the funny dialog because they couldn't hear over the screaming. I think I feel a watch coming on...!

It was very good, and an easy read. I can understand how if one has personally encountered Alzheimer's in a family or friend it would be difficult. I probably would have had a hard time had I had any experience with it. I know I've never been able to make it through anything dealing with parental alcoholism.

My mother had Alzheimer's, or something like it. Oddly enough I loved reading Nicholas Spark's The Notebook. He captured some of the finer aspects of the situation that most people wouldn't think about. For some reason that helped me right after she died. The movie was a different thing all together. Blech!

Well, the original UK pressings gave everyone the best of both worlds, the hits on the 45s, 99% original material on the EPs and LPs.

One thing we probably can agree on is that in 2015 the Stones' 60s catalogue is in complete disarray; it's Brian Jones' birthday tomorrow n'all.
I'd go so far to say it's a disgrace and, until it's sorted, I'm in absolutely no danger of lining Jagger & Co's pocket ever again.

Yes, the Stones' 60's catalogue has become a mess, but that's a big problem only if you are a completist, which I'm not. I think I have every Stones record I need; I'd say that I only miss "Jumping Jack Flash" and "Honky Tonk Women".

I value the UK versions of those LPs far more than their US equivalents, the US versions have fewer, and yet more overly familiar, songs (e.g. 'Ruby Tuesday', 'Let's Spend The Night Together', 'Satisfaction', 'Paint It, Black' etc. - they were all on 45 in the UK).

That's exactly the reason why I prefer the US versions, because I want to have "Satisfaction", "Paint It Black" and "Ruby Tuesday". The other way to have those songs is getting a compilation, but I can't get no satisfaction with any released Rolling Stones collection.
