This pressing has A3 I Cry Instead in the publishing notes on the back cover
Considering the quality of the original material on With the Beatles, it shouldn t have been a surprise that Lennon McCartney
decided to devote their third album to all-original material.
Nevertheless, that decision still impresses, not only because the album
is so strong, but because it was written and recorded at a time when the Beatles
were constantly touring, giving regular BBC concerts, appearing on
television and releasing non-LP singles and EPs, as well as filming
their first motion picture. In that context, the achievement of A Hard Day s Night
is all the more astounding. Not only was the record the de facto
soundtrack for their movie, not only was it filled with nothing but Lennon-McCartney originals, but it found the Beatles
truly coming into their own as a band by performing a uniformly
excellent set of songs. All of the disparate influences on their first
two albums had coalesced into a bright, joyous, original sound filled
with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies. They had certainly found
their musical voice before, but A Hard Day s Night
is where it became mythical. In just a few years, they made more
adventurous and accomplished albums, but this is the sound of
Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory -- for better and for worse, this
is the definitive Beatles
album, the one every group throughout the ages has used as a blueprint.
Listening to the album, it s easy to see why. Decades after its
original release, A Hard Day s Night s
punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious,
singalong melodies is remarkably fresh. There s something intrinsically
exciting in the sound of the album itself, something to keep the record
vital years after it was recorded. Even more impressive are the songs
themselves. Not only are the melodies forceful and memorable, but Lennon and McCartney
have found a number of variations to their basic Merseybeat style, from
the brash Can t Buy Me Love and Any Time at All, through the gentle
If I Fell, to the tough folk-rock of I ll Cry Instead. It s
possible to hear both songwriters develop their own distinctive voices
on the album, but overall, A Hard Day s Night
stands as a testament to their collaborative powers -- never again did
they write together so well or so easily, choosing to pursue their own
routes. John and Paul must have known how strong the material is -- they threw the pleasant trifle I m Happy Just to Dance with You to George and didn t give anything to Ringo
to sing. That may have been a little selfish, but it hardly hurts the
album, since everything on the record is performed with genuine glee and
excitement. It s the pinnacle of their early years.
