It must be confessed that the more one hears these silly and childish songs the more irritating they become. Many sound rather like country songs slightly pop-ified. The only one which didn't annoy me was track 12 ('A taste of honey').
To get the true impact of that album you would need to think of the time 1962/63, pop music was in vogue but mostly ballads and American doowop or if you were different Motown but suddenly the Beatles came out with Please Please Me an upbeat raw in your face single. It just took off with the kids. Even my old man who was into jazz and Chet Atkins said - when he heard them - they're good. As soon as I heard that song I went into a local record store and asked if they had it. The guy hadn't heard of them and asked me to spell the groups name. I spelled it Beetles which obviously was wrong but within a very short time everybody knew who they were and I suppose the rest is history.
The "original" cover had the lads in 1000 pound suites, looking like they came for dinner?
This entire album was recorded in 10 hours! Beatles publishing company was Maclen. So McCartney did get his name in "front" in a small way.
