Beatles For Sale, Light And Shade

Another narrative of the albums that have had the most meaning in my life and in which I hope to contribute more than knowledge, feeling, which is the most important thing. Beatles For Sale has been cataloged by many over the years (it was released in 1964) as one of the darkest albums of The Fab Four. I totally disagree, I could accept that it is a disc with lights and shadows, but that does not prevent it from being brilliant. The lights and shadows due to the variety of letters and the rhythms that they used to record all these tracks contrast; nevertheless, all have the great touch that in the times to come would mark the course of the immortality of the favorite group of many generations: The Beatles. Probably many fans of this group would like all their songs to be like "She Loves You", but that is not part of the artistic growth experienced by all composers, let alone when we speak of the greatest in the century music scene XX. For me, this record represents the bridge that unites what was once the aspiration and the big dreams of four players from Liverpool who were looking for fame, with the confirmation that everything they did, would conquer the whole world, no matter races, languages. , musical tastes, and ideology. After Beatles For Sale, the band would cease to be an attempt to be a solid reality. Having compiled all the experience of the previous albums and with the security of their solidity in composing, The Beatles gives us a sample that touches its origins, but at the same time it draws its future. With the Lennon-McCartney duo that defines the role of each of them in each song and builds the path to be considered the most important composers of the time, we distinguish the style by which everyone wants to walk, but always with the complement of Your partner that enriches the other's ideas. It should be noted that the songs included in this album that were not number one in the year in which they were published, reached great sales decades later. This is the case of the song "No Reply" that in the eighties and thanks to a mix that was popularized on the radio in many countries and that, by the way, was very bad, was revalued. Beatles For Sale shines as one of the works, perhaps less appreciated by many, but much more honest and authentic than other traditional English melodies. of the group.

Beatles for Sale is the fourth studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. It was released on 4 December 1964 in the United Kingdom on EMI's Parlophone label. The album marked a departure from the upbeat tone that had characterised the Beatles' previous work, partly due to the band's exhaustion after a series of tours that had established them as a worldwide phenomenon in 1964. Beatles for Sale was not widely available in the US until 1987, when the Beatles' catalogue was standardised for release on CD. Instead, eight of the album's fourteen tracks appeared on Capitol Records' concurrent release, Beatles '65, issued in North America only.
