The Beatles

The Beatles

Profile:
The most successful band in musical history.
Formed in Liverpool UK during the 1960's
The lineup comprised John Lennon (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Paul McCartney (bass, guitar, vocals), George Harrison (guitar, vocals), and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals).

Following an initial period as a straightforward Mersey-beat group, later recordings saw them experiment with psychedelia, incorporating innovative production techniques involving tape loops and other effects. Although the group split in 1970, they have continued to release special products.

Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 (Performer).

Overated, the Abbey Road cover tells you what the mop tops were,middle of the road. Undoubtedly the most popular though, like McDonald's for the ears.

One of my many albums is: The Beatles 1967-1970. The back cover states (P)1973 EMI Records Limited, inside of gate fold states (C)1973 Apple Records Inc. The album itself (blue label, small writing) Mfg. by CAPITAL Records a sub. of Capital Industries, EMI Inc...USA Capital MARCO Reg. Okay.., Than at the end of the listed tracks it states RECORDED IN ENGLAND (P)1973 EMI Records Limited. Both albums' run outs have the etch stamp "MASTERED BY CAPITAL". My question is, do I list the country as US or UK, and where does Apple come into play..I am new at this and really need to re-group as I have listed 97 albums only to find out all are not correct and I am starting to panic. I have mostly "MASTERED BY" LPs and "STERLING" 45's (over 300) How can I become as good of a contributor to Discogs as I am a listener (of Music) Can someone PLEASE help me?

A kind message to all Discogs' members and collectors who enjoy the Brazilian Beatles' releases:

First of all, and this is specially valid for Brazilian users, you definitely should research which pressing you're posting here before creating the release listing. There are plenty of mistakes, from catalogue numbers to images and notes, and while I try to friendly correct them as I find these mistakes, it really helps to do some research before adding anything. We had many, many reissues over the years, and Discogs is very clear that you should use the proper images and information for the pressing/edition you're adding! A record isn't a "first press" merely because it has an old label and/or our characteristic 60's "sandwich sleeves", for instance. Odeon from Brazil used this kind of sleeve from 1959 all the way to 1972, and between those years there were plenty of reissues already (generally speaking, not only Beatles)!

Another important thing which should be noted, this time about our so-called "mono" records: many of our records, LPs, singles, EPs and whatever, from 1965 onwards are simply FOLD DOWNS of stereo releases. This may be of some interest to a certain portion of the collectors as items of curiosity, but that also means that our editions of albums like Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's and The Beatles (aka "White Album") are mediocre at best. (And these aren't the only three cases of fold down releases, by the way, they are just examples). You would definitely do good to research before buying any Brazilian "mono" release thinking that it is a cheaper or "cooler" alternative to the UK mono records. Plus some of the Odeon releases were a mess, with tracks taken from different sources and the like. Our Help! may contain that James Bond intro, but it also has an AWFUL sounding B side, for example. Oh, you also will like to know that most of our records AREN'T as rare as some sellers would like you to believe. ;) We do have rare records, of course! The mono Beatles Forever, both editions (mono/stereo) of George Harrison's Wonderwall, the original stereo release of The Beatles 65... but these are exceptions, not the rule. Just a friendly observation to you good people!

If I can be of any help, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks for the attention!
Luis.

The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.

Beatles was of his time led zeppelin. They made experimental studio tracks with reverse audio.
What you think about famous Sgt Peppers..lp cacophony track in the end?

First listeners listen to them during years in mono. From "Please Please Me" to Magical Mystery Tour" The Beatles and George Martin totally don't care about the stereo versions and put all their energy and time to the mono mixes. So we have this ridiculous mixes (with Ringo drums and Paul Bass in the right channel, John guitar and voice in the center and George guitar on the left), made much time faster than mono mixes by assistant engineers without any of the Beatles (for Sgt. Pepper, mono mix was made in 3 weeks, than 3 days for the stereo!). The problem is, knowing this, during more than 40 years after, repress see this stereo versions as untouchable relics, and the primary version to use. The ultimate to do this are the 2009 remaster.
That's probably why first UK mono pressing are now so expansive. For those who have this versions, it's amazing how louder and dynamics they sounds. In fact you can find a lot of good mono versions in non-UK pressings for a cheaper price. A chance to have now in 2014 "the Beatles in mono" repress that finally made a work that should have been the better way to reedit all this records since the beginning.

The Beatles didn't 'release' 91 Albums and growing by the hour...

Why is all this rubbish like 'Moviemania! Cicadelic Records' listed as an Album by the Beatles?

Surely this bootleg junk should be in the Miscellaneous section, or better yet the Unnoficial one?

Or why doesn't Discogs just abandon all hope of having proper categories for Albums, Compilations, Unofficial, etc and just have one long list from A to Z?

This is happening on every major entry now - correct me if I'm wrong, but the only entries in Albums should be the albums the artist released themselves/approved? Compilations is a seperate category entirely, as is bootlegs.
