Beatlesの偉大さに気付いたのは、きっと音楽の仕事をするようになってからだと思う。
中学生1年の時に、東芝のステレオのCMで「Let It Be」の映像が流れるのに感動し、写真集付きの
アルバム「Let It Be」を買ったのが最初の体験で、それ以降は「赤」「青」のベスト盤ですませて
いました。
ですので、ここでのつぶやきはあまり当てにはなりません。でも、やっぱ外せませんからね。

言わずと知れたビートルズのデビュー・アルバム。最初に好きになった曲も「プリーズ・プリーズ・ミー」だったような気がする。
でも、ビートルズってちょっとR&Rぽくて古くさく感じていました。特に初期のアルバムはその傾向が強かった。その中で好きだったのは、「トゥイスト&シャウト」だったりして、この曲がカヴァーだと知ったのはずっーと後の事でした。

「All My Loving」は名曲だよね(って、ビートルズはほとんど名曲だらけだ!)。このアルバムもカヴァーがまだ多いけど、今聴くと本当に力強い。
そうそう、上のアルバムで触れなかったけど、デビュー曲「Love Me Do」って何が良いのか全然解らなかった。でも、音楽を深く知るようになるとあの曲が凄い曲だと思えてくるから不思議。ポールがアビーロードStのライヴで、震えて歌ったって言ってたけど、今聴くとホントにそんな感じで聴こえるのに笑ってしまいました。
A Hard Day's Night 1. Hard Day's Night
2. I Should Have Known Better
3. If I Fell
4. I'm Happy Just to Dance With You
5. And I Love Her

8. Any Time at All
9. I'll Cry Instead
10. Things We Said Today
11. When I Get Home
12. You Can't Do That
13. I'll Be Back
映画がまだ時代の先端にあった時代ならではのサントラというかコラボというか、とにかく初出演映画のアルバムです。ここらに来るとオリジナルだけになる訳ですね。
前時代に別れを告げ、新しい時代を作っていく感じが素敵ですね。ジョンの魅力が爆発ですが、ポールの名曲「And I Love Her」流石です。
