Is this official Beatles album ? For me, official second album is "With the Beatles". Can someone gives explanation ? If it's not official, it should go into Unofficial section.

"The Beatles' Second Album" is a great mix of some wonderful Lennon-McCartney songs and excellent covers of some of their favorite american tunes.

"Thank You Girl", "I Call Your Name" are the minor Lennon-McCartney songs on this lp. Otherwise, you have the classic "She Loves You", the underplayed lovely "I'll Get You", and Lennon's bitter rock "You Can't Do That".

The cover songs are exemplary. McCartney almost steals Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally". Lennon's vocal on "Money" is almost insane, as George Martin's piano beats madly, and McCartney's backing vocals mimic Motown girl groups uncannily well. I much prefer this remake to Barrett Strong's original.

Their great love of the Motown sound is reinforced in a spirited remake of the Marvelette's "Please Mr. Postman" and a sincere, commited version of Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got A Hold On Me".

"Roll Over Beethoven" is an inspired cover version of Chuck Berry's classic. Harrison's vocals never have the presence of John or Paul's, but his guitar work, especially in the manic break, is inventive.

The less said about the fab four's cover of the Donay's "Devil In Her Heart", the better. Like their later cover of "Mr. Moonlight", these songs must have sounded dated when they were first released.

I suppose I prefer the group's previous "Meet the Beatles" in that it had such a wealth of Lennon-McCartney compositions. But "The Beatles' Second Album" holds up pretty well after all of these years.
