Revolver (revolverband.com) returns to one of their favorite venues! This time they're choosing a lesser known, but nonetheless great, Beatles album:
Beatles for Sale is the Beatles’ fourth studio album, released on 4 December 1964, and produced by George Martin for Parlophone. The album marked a turning point in the evolution of the Lennon–McCartney partnership, John Lennon particularly now showing interest in composing songs of a more autobiographical nature. "I'm a Loser" shows Lennon for the first time coming under the influence of Bob Dylan, whom he met in New York while on tour, on 28 August 1964. The non-album tracks "I Feel Fine" and "She's a Woman" performed the singles' role. That coupling was followed up in the United States by "Eight Days a Week", which became their seventh number one in March 1965. The album hit the UK #1 spot and retained that position for 11 of the 46 weeks that it spent in the Top 20. Beatles for Sale did not surface as a regular album in the US until 1987. In its place was Beatles ’65 which featured eight songs from Beatles for Sale, plus the A and B-side of "I Feel Fine" and "I'll Be Back" from the UK's A Hard Day's Night album. Beatles ’65 enjoyed a nine-week run at the top of the US charts beginning in January 1965. Most of the rest of the songs from Beatles for Sale appeared on another US album, Beatles VI.
