3 stars The Beatles started making pop albums, 2-minute songs (just like in that period), with several covers in it. Please Please Me is a good summary of this first period, though it's not the best album. It contains all time classics like 'Love Me Do', great songs like 'Please Please Me', 'I Saw Her Standing There' and 'Misery', and good covers, highlighting 'Chains', original by Carol King and his partner Gerry Goffin, and the classic 'Twist and Shout'.

The song writing credits are McCartney/Lennon, due to the agreement just reached for the upcoming career. Since the second album, "With The Beatles", the credits were changed to Lennon/McCartney.

To those who enjoy the first period of The Beatles, this is a good album, rock & roll oriented, concise, pleasant to hear. Well, that's my case: 3 stars, good but non-essential
