The Beatles – The Making Of “With The Beatles”

While Please Please Me was the first release by The Beatles, I relate more to With The Beatles because of songs like All My Loving, George’s Don’t Bother Me, his first composition, Please Mr. Postman sung by John, and of course, It Won’t Be Long, my favorite from this album. I always go back to that memorable experience of going to a nearby city just to watch The Birth of The Beatles in the early 1980s with very close high school friends who all were drawn to The Beatles because of me and still send me some Beatles stuff wherever they are from time to time.

“With The Beatles” is the second studio album by the Beatles. It was released on 22 November 1963, on Parlophone, and was recorded four months after the band’s debut “Please Please Me”. 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 and R&B hits). It remained at the top of the charts for 21 weeks, displacing Please Please Me, so that the Beatles occupied the top spot for 51 consecutive weeks. In 2003, the album was ranked number 420 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
