The songs on the Help! Album are quite possibly their greatest "earlier" tunes. And I think "I've Just Seen a Face" is a really great track. You can't help but want to sing along to it. I think the tempo of the song is very upbeat and in a sense uplifting. I love the chorus!
I agree with all of those who said it's a very under-rated song!! Defintely one of my favorite songs.
I think that another song which happens to be VERY under-rated (even though it does NOT belong to the Help! album) is the song "I Will" from The White Album. Would anyone agree with that?

I think it has a bit of a country folk sound to it. The day this "Rubber Soul" lp came out I listened to it numerous times and it occured to me that the Beatles had become more introspective. Drive my Car wasn't on my Lp and the whole "rock" feel was gone and replaced by a mellower sound. It had a country type of feel with a little folk included. The black turtle necks and suede coats had taken over the Beatles look! As so many times before and later they had re-invented both their musical style and looks!

I like it a lot. Would the style of this song be considered rockabilly? PC? Anyone?
not really rockabilly gotta be  bluesier.

I think a little more of a Folk/country sound. As was quite a few songs on this LP. I read in some reviews that the Beatles had become  enamoured with American western movies and this was a big influence on their song writing at the time!!!!

MrMustard is absolutely right, it really sounds like Simon and Garfunkel to me. But which came first, Simon and Garfunkel or Paul's song - were the duo established when Help was being made? Could Paul have been influenced by Paul Simon here? It certainly makes an interesting change as a Beatles song.

Currently, I've Just Seen A Face is my favorite Beatles song.

It took ten years but Paul finally took a lesson from groups like these...

...and performed a bluegrass version in 1975...

I think Paul was keenly aware of what and who was going on around him. Also feel a Simon and garfunkle influence with Bridge Over Troubled Waters and Let It Be, Have You Ever been Experienced and Helter Skelter. IMO

According to the Abby Road Studio Sessions, I've Just seen a Face, I'm Down and Yesterday were recorded on June 14th, 1965 in that order all in one day! Phew!

Some present-day bands might take a year to do that.  ha2ha

In my opinion, the Beatles are not only the greatest musical act of all time, but also mankind's crowning artistic achievement.

 I've Just Seen a Face is one of those timeless songs and I would have liked it on the English Rubber Soul (like on the US release) and Wait released back on Help when it was recorded. I think that would have stopped the leak twords the end of Rubber Soul and maybe would have it considered the greatest Beatle Album ever. But... such is life. Auntie Gin would be proud!

Aww...this is why I've always longed to see Paul live. He seems like he's a lot of fun as a performer. I've always loved this song too. The beginning, ending and everything in between. :)
