    Dave Marsh can be a tiresome bully listen to him on satellite radio sometime, and you ll hear someone who sounds like a left wing version of Sean Hannity He can also be a misguided scold I ll never forgive him for his debunkings of Tom Verlaine or Steely Dan But he s always written lovingly about early rock n roll, that is, before it became rock In addition to critiquing the eleven world changing songs assembled here 27 minutes , the two main threads of this brief study are the Beatles Dave Marsh can be a tiresome bully listen to him on satellite radio sometime, and you ll hear someone who sounds like a left wing version of Sean Hannity He can also be a misguided scold I ll never forgive him for his debunkings of Tom Verlaine or Steely Dan But he s always written lovingly about early rock n roll, that is, before it became rock In addition to critiquing the eleven world changing songs assembled here 27 minutes , the two main threads of this brief study are the Beatles as cover artists and the strange history of their American discography The former is a terribly under examined aspect of the group, and I tend to agree with Marsh s assessment that the Beatles took some already pretty great songs and, in most cases, made them even better As for the way the U.S label Capitol mangled the Parlophone UK albums, Marsh reveals how Capitol exec Dave Dexter, a jazz guy who didn t even like the Beatles, oversaw a program that reconfigured those masterpieces into obtusely sequenced, shorter, often redundant packages Marsh goes after Dexter as if he s back in the Detroit of his childhood and arguing with his dad at the dinner table Unfortunately, Marsh relays the story no less than three times, and at great length Which points to a big problem with this little book for all its qualities, it is horribly repetitive

    There s nothing I enjoythan a critical review of Beatles music I have a shelf full of books dedicated to this topic, and so I was delighted to see a new one on the market, especially devoted to one of theobscure items in the Beatles catalogue For the uninitiated, for the earlier part of the Beatles career up through Revolver , the album releases in the USA were different than the original releases in the UK We got fewer tracks per album and so Capitol Records created hybrid alb There s nothing I enjoythan a critical review of Beatles music I have a shelf full of books dedicated to this topic, and so I was delighted to see a new one on the market, especially devoted to one of theobscure items in the Beatles catalogue For the uninitiated, for the earlier part of the Beatles career up through Revolver , the album releases in the USA were different than the original releases in the UK We got fewer tracks per album and so Capitol Records created hybrid albums that took tracks from the b side of singles, tracks that were cut, and other odds and ends Sie Liebt Dich the Beatles rock out in German This book is a review history of one of these hybrid albums I enjoyed it but I expectedfrom Dave Marsh Rolling Stone, Creem There was a LONG discussion of the dude at Capitol responsible for desecrating the albums yeah, this guy was a tool but I thought the book dwelled on him too much The book was a quick read and made me want to pull out my Beatles CDs, but I would recommend Tell Me Why as a much better version of this kind of review book or The Beatles Anthology for overal Beatley goodness

    Interesting idea for a book an appreciation of a generally underrated album, especially given that it s one of the bastardized American Beatles albums, put together by Capitol Records piecemeal from various British sources other albums and singles Unfortunately, Marsh loses his thread and covers lots of other ground as well When he talks about Dave Dexter, the man who oversaw the American releases, it s fun to read but it really should have been the core of a separate book He also talks ab Interesting idea for a book an appreciation of a generally underrated album, especially given that it s one of the bastardized American Beatles albums, put together by Capitol Records piecemeal from various British sources other albums and singles Unfortunately, Marsh loses his thread and covers lots of other ground as well When he talks about Dave Dexter, the man who oversaw the American releases, it s fun to read but it really should have been the core of a separate book He also talks about Beatlemania, the early American airplay, and the original versions of some of the covers Devil in Her Heart has a particularly good story behind it , but the chapters seem put together at random, and the information he delivers also feels scattershot I m not sorry I read it but I wish Marsh had spenttime on constructing it

    I found this book very interesting, and entertaining I actually learned stuff about the Beatles that I didn t know, and that is saying something The chapters explaining how the US Beatle albums ended up the way they did were great Marsh s love and passion for the music comes across on every page Of course, I did not agree with everything he wrote, and I am glad I felt like I was having an intelligent conversation with someone who cares as much about this music as I do.

    Started as an interesting book, but it got lost and confused on how he was telling the story of this album My biggest annoyance is when he mentioned how other rock critics were jealous when he told them he was writing about this album, and that Greil Marcus tried to take the idea from him Wow, I get it, he had a brilliant idea, if he says so himself.

    Really enjoyed learning about the US Recording industry and its impact on The Beatles.
