Could you guys explain something?
« on: July 13, 2004, 12:58:39 PM »

Why does no one seem to like the early beatles stuff?

I won't comment as of now because I'd like to see what other people think

I absolutely LOVE their early stuff!!!! ;D

It is equally as important as most of their later releases, and just as innovative.

It's a matter for personal taste. Me personally, I discovered the early stuff when I was very young. Into my influential teenage years I discovered that there was more than the red album. I began to think I was COOL for knowing much more of the later stuff than my friends. Obviously I was'nt that cool but I'm highlighting that everyones journey with the Beatles must feel like a personal one.

As a result I think there seemed more to discover later on, lyrically, image, beliefs, art. They seemed to break the corporate shackles of their suits.
Now I know that there is so much early Beatle songs I still have to familiarise with. 

The best way I can describe coming from my point of view is that The Beatles songs mean something different every day. You can grow into them, out of them and then back in. Something happens and all of a sudden you can hear the words/music differently.

I'm sure other people will have their explanations.
All The best!!!! Interesting topic.

I too love it.

I think those who came to the music later didn't have the real-time expereience of living with each new release topping the next.  When those early songs hit they were the most exciting thing around.  Then they actually got hotter and hotter year after year.

When you listen now after so much time has gone by they sound old, quaint, etc.  but regardless, they are good songs, very well performed.

In a strange way, I generally adore their early cover version rather than their early self-written songs. In their early period they did sometime strike gold writing (I still think Please please me is one of their greatest songs ever), but personally I've been listening more to Live at the BBC than, for instance A hard day's night.

But then again, when I first became a fan, I bought all their later records - and I'm starting to discover the wonder of their earlier stuff now.

The early stuff is great. Day tripper is in their early stage and is probably one of the greatest guitar riff ever. I liked most of their music in the early stage because of their singing, i like their later stage because of their singing and guitar. But i dont like how the beatles lookind in their later years, especially george and John.

I like the early stuff but it's not my favourite. I actually became a fan listening to their early music.

I love the early stuff. The early stuff seems really pleasing you know, easy to listen to. Their later stuff was deeper and more out there and takes a more open mind to listen to which a lot of people are into, because it's what made the Beatles so memorable. Which is why the later stuff was awesome, but I think they're both equal. It just depends on what sort of mood your in.

I love it to death. A Beatles album is a Beatles album to me, I never really lump them into categories.

I've always loved the early stuff, and prefer it to the later material.

SHE LOVES YOU may be my favorite Beatles song, and screams with energy. Try to imagine it's 1964, you've got stuff like Frankie Avalon and The Singing Nun -- and then all of a sudden, out blasts the raunchy SHE LOVES YOU. A good way to get the appreciation for what the early stuff sounded like at the time was watching those original old Ed Sullivan shows, especially the 1965 one. Everyone is so straight, and at first you hear these mellow songs like "September in the Rain" and "Try to remember that kind of September" by other singers -- then the Beatles launch into I FEEL FINE. Big difference!

I totally agree with you (as I seem to be doing an awful lot!).

Now imagine what it must have been like to hear that in the British charts in '63! You think YOUR charts were lame, well the British charts were a poor imitation of American music at that time - ie worse!! LOL!

Thank God for the Yeah Yeah Yeah's!

I'm really kind of indifferent about the early Beatles recordings.

First off all, I love George's songs, which didn't appear until Help! (I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.).
And I feel John and Paul's material is more pleasing to my ears than some of the eariler things.

Don't get me wrong, though. "Love Me Do" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand", among others, are truly great songs.

George recorded "Dont Bother Me" which was on 'With The Beatles'.
