Beatles For Sale, literally

(1/1)

Hi all,

A signed copy of Beatles For Sale has come up for auction, reportedly one of only three known to have survived:

It is a bit tatty, but if there are only three examples left, I'm sure many people wouldn't argue with that.

I really like the Beatles For Sale album, despite it evidently being produced in a rush, I think it reflects what was to come in the Beatles career. This later period is where all of my favourite Beatles music was made.

I agree.  It's one of my favorite albums too.  I've always felt it was a signpost to their future and Rubber Soul.

I agree too. There are some great songs here. You can see the transition from HDN to Help era. It also heralds the end of the "covers" and sets the stage for more sophisticated songs to follow.
I noticed too that it seems they were trying to figure out what to do with George a little more though I think they overdid it with his vocal double tracking and over recorded a couple of guitar parts. At least he was being considered and slowly coming into his own!
