    Phil I love you, but to call any Beatles album underrated is just silly. They are all very highly acclaimed.



    Always will be one of my favorites, pot smoking Beatles > psychedelic Beatles



    The movie is so great

        TICKET TO RIDE



        John Lennon: "That was one of the earliest heavy-metal records made." The brief, but recognizable guitar solo was played by Paul McCartney, who was The Beatles bass player. This was used in the Beatles movie Help! in the scene where The Beatles ski... poorly. This was the first Beatles song that was over 3 minutes long.



        The Beatles played this on an episode of Ed Sullivan Show that aired September 12, 1965. It was the last Ed Sullivan show broadcast in black and white. The Beatles were in America for their big Shea stadium concert. The Carpenters covered this in 1969. It was their first single and also the name of their debut album.



        Don Short, who traveled with the Beatles in the '60s, recalled that John coined the phrase "Ticket to Ride" for another meaning - The girls who worked the streets in Hamburg had to have a clean bill of health and the authorities would give them a card saying they were clean. Don later said that although he specifically recalls John telling him that, John could of been joking - you had to be careful with him like that.

          The alternative possibility for the reference is to Ryde, on the Isle of Wight. John and Paul once took a trip up there, hitchhiking part way, to see Paul's cousin, who owned a pub in Ryde.

            I really like the movie a lot too. It's not quite as good as AHDN, but it's close.



            But I'm sticking by my opinion on the under-rated part. Please allow me to clarify: I consider it under-rated by Beatles album ranking and rating standards. It seems like people talk about this album a lot less than say, Rubber Soul, and they were released within a few months of each other, and IMO, are pretty equally brilliant.

                Whenever I hear Mono Beatles recordings it makes me angry that they made them stereo at some point and thought it was better.

                  1. They usually made the stereo mixes shortly after completing the mono mixes - often the same day or week. The Beatles were very interested in, and contributed to the mono mix sessions.



                  2. However, the stereo mixes were considered of much lesser importance, and the Beatles themselves largely left that task to George Martin and the engineers at EMI. By all accounts, they really weren't very interested in the stereo mixes, and almost never attended those mix sessions, which perplexes me a bit, since there are so many artistic possibilities and fun sonic things you can do with stereo, and they were always into new things, new sounds, doing something "different."



                  3. Some recordings were really only available in mono due to the way they were originally recorded. This is mainly very early material. Some of this was artificially "stereoized" with studio trickery later - in some cases, many years later. Other albums, that they used multitrack recording on (via four track decks), could be mixed in stereo (actually "panned mono"), but due to the limited amount of tracks, there is considerable "track sharing" on the tapes (multiple instruments, at different parts of the song, sharing a single tape track), and limited tracks and options available for panning - resulting in some of the "weird" panning you hear on mid-period stereo Beatles albums.



                  4. Some material is only available in stereo. For example, there is no mono version of Abbey Road. As you might imagine, this is only late period stuff.

                      Probably my favorite Beatles album. Agree that moptop Beatles > psychedelic Beatles.
                      I'm in a band called Little Sluggers. Signature.

                          I was obsessed with the song help for a period of time. Um

                          I'm better now, I enjoy it like a normal person now.

                            Good call Phil. Help! is my favorite Beatles album. Just about every song is brilliant and beautiful in a different way. My only gripe is that You Like Me Too Much and Tell Me What You See are just kind of crumby tunes. But you could chuck both of them and have a perfect twelve song album.

                              Nice! I have always enjoyed Help more than Rubber Soul though I've heard John later said that he wished they had released both of those albums at the same time since they kind of went together.
