As for individual band shirts, the GN'R ones were outselling Metallica's. October 6, Axl Rose: Let me tell you a couple of things about Metallica. I thought I was friends with these people. I don't know how long they were on the road, but there was nobody in their crew that had ever got a bonus or paid anything extra for workin' their fucking ass off.
James Hetfield: It [the tour] was different. It was a good idea. We really had no idea what was going to come with it. We were out to show people that there was something a little more progressive and hard-core than Guns 'n' Roses.
And to go about it our way. But it was hard going on, dealing with Axl and his attitude. It's not something we'd want to do again. Oh, and listen out for Axl when Album) tells the crowd that he hasn't been asleep for 2 days, at the end of "Patience"!
There are some light moments of percussion to hint at the form of the full band arrangement that would coalesce later. Vol 1 is a far superior recording than Vol 2, which sounds like it suffers from tape timing issues on the first couple of tracks. Nevertheless, I'm sure the die hard Guns 'N Roses collectors will still be interested in both Any Time At All - The Beatles - A Hard Days Night (Vinyl these titles.
I spent hours trawling through Guns 'N Roses bootleg listing sites, trying to identify the source of Vol 1 without any luck. I suspect the track order on this bootleg has been tampered with by AMCOS, however the set list is typical of their concerts. If anyone can identify the exact origin of these recordings, I'd be very interested in hearing from you. Both posts include full album artwork of course. Unlicensed Live Vol 1.

The Amboy Dukes tag was dropped. By the time Nugent had released his third LP 'Cat Scratch Fever' inhis albums were reaching Platinum status and he was the highest grossing tour act in the United States at the time.
The album-opening track "Wango Tango" became an instant Nugent standard, including a humorous middle breakdown section in which he shows off with a carnival barker-esque rap. Standout tracks are, in increasing order:. Hard As Nails - Ted Nugent has never being known for brilliant lyrics and this song doesn't change this trend for his simple minded discussions about sex.
Ted apparently has quite a reputation backstage with the ladies although oddly enough he was a Tee-totaller. This mid-tempo song has a great driving and chunky guitar riff which really makes you want to pound your fist. The guitar solo on this song leaves a little to be desired but is still good and I wish there wasn't a fade out at the end.
A hard rock song like this should have an abrupt ending. Scream Dream - On this song, Ted's vocals are being pumped though some sort of Phase Shifter and sounds really creepy at times.
Ted's lyrics appear to be about the violent perils of the big cities like Chicago, New York and Detroit and how they give him bad dreams at night, making him want to Scream.
Once again, there is another classic driving Nugent guitar riff on the verses and Chorus. This track is a faster tempo than the previous 2 tracks however there is a nice little key change bridge in the middle, just before an absolutely blistering guitar solo, which starts off Chuck Berry Style.
They started it with concerts in London and Paris, before making history by conquering America in February, appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show before an estimated 73 million viewers. The Beatles followed up their Stateside triumph with a world tour, numerous interviews, television appearances and new recordings, and starred in their debut feature film.
The album was recorded over nine non-consecutive days, between January and June In between the sporadic sessions The Beatles fulfilled their touring and filming commitments, with John Lennon and Paul McCartney writing some of their strongest songs to date. The genesis of the song was later recalled by Evening Standard journalist Maureen Cleave, who was a friend of The Beatles.
It was fun, it was great. I always liken songwriting to a conjurer pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Where there was nothing, now there is something. That aspect of it made it a lot of fun.
This was the first of the remasters that I purchased as I had yet to hear most of the songs in stereo. The remaster did not disappoint. This is clearly the best of their pre-Rubber Soul albums. Interesting that their only pre-Pepper album without a Ringo spotlight is also their only LP with 13 songs instead of They probably dropped matchbox to keep it all original However the day Ringo got tonsillitis they were going to record a fourteeth track.
However, the album as a whole is John at his best across an entire Beatle album. On Pepper, Lennon sings lead or has a major vocal contribution to 7 of the 13 songs, Paul 8. Sorry to disagree with your disagreement MMM but I tend to agree with Liam: Paul wrote five songs and a reprise while John wrote three songs.
Finally, the whole concept of S. Pepper came from Paul. I truly believe he was carrying the Beatles on his shoulders here when they needed him to. His voice was the strongest, he was cheekiest, he wrote the books, he wore the cap. And here he wrote the songs. In 10 of the 13 songs, Lennon was the dominant composer. The melodies are innovative. The title song has glissando like arabian folk music? Lennon was a pure genius. Paul had no problem writing fewer songs; he was more consistent in his amazing creativity.
Great synopsis, Johan. The piece was later used for the sleeve of the compilation album The Beatles' Balladsreleased in In the original artwork was put up for auction.
In the UK, The Beatles debuted at number one in the UK on 7 December  and spent seven weeks at the top of the UK charts including the entire competitive Christmas season until it was replaced by the Seekers ' Best of the Seekers on 25 Januarydropping to number 2.
However, the album returned to the top spot the following week, spending an eighth and final week at number 1. In the US, the album achieved huge commercial success. Capitol Records sold over 3. In all, The Beatles spent weeks on the Billboard On release, The Beatles gained highly favourable reviews from the majority of music critics. In The ObserverTony Palmer wrote that "if there is still any doubt that Lennon and McCartney are the greatest songwriters since Schubert ", the album "should surely see the last vestiges of cultural snobbery and bourgeois prejudice swept away in a deluge of joyful music making".
Pepper or Magical Mystery Tour due to the band's improved songwriting and their relying less on the studio tricks of those earlier works. Pepper " and concluded: "Musically, there is beauty, horror, surprise, chaos, order. And that is the world; and that is what The Beatles are on about. Created by, creating for, their age. They are so good that they not only expand the idiom, but they are also able to penetrate it and take it further.
Among the less favourable critiques, Time magazine's reviewer wrote that The Beatles showcased the "best abilities and worst tendencies" of the Beatles, as it is skilfully performed and sophisticated, but lacks a "sense of taste and purpose". In a appraisal of the album, for Mojo magazine, Ian MacDonald wrote that The Beatles regularly appears among the top 10 in critics' "best albums of all time" lists, yet it was a work that he deemed "eccentric, highly diverse, and very variable [in] quality".
He derided tracks including "Revolution 9" and "Helter Skelter", but said that picking personal highlights was "part of the fun" for listeners. According to Slant Magazine ' s Eric Henderson, The Beatles is a rarity among the band's recorded works, in that it "resists reflexive canonisation, which, along with society's continued fragmentation, keeps the album fresh and surprising".
He concludes: "None of it sounds like it was meant to share album space together, but somehow The Beatles creates its own style and sound through its mess. Among reviews of the remastered album, Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph found that even its worst songs work within the context of such an eclectic and unconventional collection, which he rated "one of the greatest albums ever made". Three years later, Rolling Stone ranked it at number 10 on the magazine's list of the Greatest Albums of All Time a position it maintained in the revised list.
The magazine praised the guitar work in "Helter Skelter". Giles Martinson of George Martin and supervisor of the 50th Anniversary remix, stated that, contrary to the prevailing view of The Beatleshe does not believe it was recorded by a band about to implode.
He said he came to this conclusion after listening to all the demos and session tapes in preparation for the remix. The release coincided with public condemnation of Lennon's treatment of Cynthia, and of his and Ono's joint projects, particularly Two Virgins. The album's lyrics progressed from being vague to open-ended and prone to misinterpretation, such as "Glass Onion" e. In the album version, he advises those who "talk about destruction" to "count me out".
Lennon then follows the sung word "out" with the spoken word "in". At the time of the album's release — which followed, chronologically, the up-tempo single version of the song, "Revolution" — that single word "in" was taken by the radical political left as Lennon's endorsement of politically motivated violence, which followed the May Paris riots. Charles Manson first heard the album not long after it was released.
Manson may have found hidden meanings in songs from earlier Beatles albums,  but, according to Vincent Bugliosi in The Beatles Manson allegedly interpreted prophetic significance in several of the songs, including "Blackbird", "Piggies" particularly the line "what they need's a damn good whacking""Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1" and "Revolution 9",  and interpreted the lyrics as a sign of imminent violence or war.
Further to the betrayal they had felt at Lennon's non-activist stance in "Revolution", New Left commentators condemned The Beatles for its failure to offer a political agenda. Sociologists Michael Katovich and Wesley Longhofer write that the album's release created "a collective appreciation of it as a 'state-of-the-art' rendition of the current pop, rock, and folk-rock sounds". The piece was in the form of a record store in which nothing but original pressings of the LP was on display.
Tape versions of the album did not feature a white cover or the numbering system. These two-tape releases were both contained in black outer cardboard slipcase covers embossed with the words The Beatles and the outline of an apple in gold print.
The second release, licensed by Ampex from EMI in early after the latter ceased manufacture of commercial reel-to-reel tapes, was issued as two separate volumes,   and sequenced the songs in the same manner as on the cassette version. The Ampex reel tape version of The Beatles has become desirable to collectors, as it contains edits on eight tracks not available elsewhere.
During andfor the album's tenth anniversary, EMI reissued the album pressed on limited edition white vinyl in several countries. The discs were pressed on high-quality virgin vinyl. The album was reissued, along with the rest of the Beatles catalogue, on compact disc in Like the original vinyl pressings, these CD copies also featured individually stamped numbers on the album's front cover in this case on the cover of the booklet for the first disc.
It was reissued again on CD in as part of a 30th anniversary series for EMI, featuring a scaled-down replication of the original artwork, including the top-loader gatefold sleeve. On 9 Novemberremixed and expanded editions of The Beatles were released. These sets feature 50 previously unreleased recordings of songs from the album, in addition to the Esher demos recorded at Harrison's house.

One thing about the boys, they were very selective about which cover versions they would release on record, which I always appreciated. A forerunner of better things to come. This is not the beginning of their Psychedelic period Cheeze. This is smack dab in their busy early non-stop touring making hits days. I guess you could say Rubber Soul is the beginning of the huge change, but not this.
They were exhausted and short on original material, but still put out a great album. As I was lucky enough to watch them at the cavern over a hundred lunchtime sessions and saw some of the numbers featured actually live I have no preference but on those mid day sessions I knew, even then, I was witnessing genius and got to know Paul well, he even wrote the.
Like the album that followed it Help it is a transitional album and underrated. I received this record in Along with great covers it has songs showing the ever developing craftsmanship of the Lennon- McCartney team.
Just adding something to my comments from a few days ago. Babys In Black and Every Little Thing are two other great Lennon- McCartney songs off this album that are outstanding, showing the steady development of their craft so evident on this album. No Reply, to my ears, has one of the greatest bridges ever both in terms of composition and execution. John is in top form as always. Add that to his covers of Rock and Roll Music and the underrated Mr. Moonlight along with his prominent lead harmony in Words Of Love.
If he had only developed his songwriting skills a little earlier, we could be remembering Beatles history very differently. Outstandingreally brings it to life. My Dad bought me this album on my 14th birthday he said it was their best one. Ah, but what they learned about singing -after listening back to their dreadful vocals at the Decca audition. Right eh? A bit about singing with much more power and grit.
Album), especially, morphed really into having much more of staying true to his own voice. You know, Pauly, that you keep re-writing history. Tinny sounding, many obvious mistakes left in, some half-baked songs.
When I make my list of their best to worst albums, that one is always towards the bottom. I just played the remastered version for my 14 year old son during breakfast. A very fine, underrated gem. Your website is awesome! This after Revolver Is the best of the Beatles. More so because John Lennon was in the forefront for a change! Before G.
