The BEATLES ON VINYL — DONE RIGHT!
Help! was the soundtrack to the Beatles' second feature film. But more than that, the 1965 soundtrack helped carve out new musical directions for the band and served up dramatic strides in production technology. Help! explored a tumultuous emotional bill of fare: Estrangement, sexual longing, uncertainty, infatuation and innocence. The group pounced on armada of available instruments — acoustic guitars, bongos, electric pianos, flutes and even strings — to deliver one of the greatest pop albums ever. And now it sounds bloody brilliant!
Quality says "A bit of a transitional album, with a few rockers, but a more folksy feel as exemplified by the following "Rubber Soul". Some great tracks, except for "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" with it's awful guitar and horrible production. It sounds as if Sir George made an attempt when he remastered it to improve the sound, but only made it worse.
