Note: This is part 2 in a series of series of posts I’m writing as I listen to the remastered Beatles discography.  See the entire series here. 

I’ve heard that With the Beatles was rushed out by The Beatles’ record company in order to take financial advantage of Beatlemania.  Perhaps that’s why I’ve never listened to it in its entirety before and why many of the songs are R&B covers.

Highlight of the Album

“Please Mr. Postman”.  Didn’t the Supremes perform this song?  Song stood out for me thanks to Lennon’s lead vocals.

I had no idea

This album was released on the same day that President Kennedy was shot.
