2 stars The Beatles are famous for having a ton of US reissues in their early days, and this is one of them. While this contains some of the best rock from this era ever, I just question the purpose behind this (and almost all American Beatles reissues).

This has eight songs already released on the British version of "A Hard Day's Night", two songs on an EP, and the German version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand". The two songs from the EP are simply cover songs. They aren't that good, and the German version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" isn't worth the purchase either. So now we knocked out two of the three sources of this album. The third, being the best album from The Beatles' early catalogue, you should just buy anyway. It has these eight songs, in addition to five other ones. "A Hard Day's Night" is a great album that any Beatles fan should buy instead of this unneeded reissue.

Another problem with this album is that it is EXTREMELY short. "A Hard Day's Night" at least broke a half-hour. This is only 24 minutes. They could have easily put another three songs on here. So in addition to being short, this also has a lousy purpose behind it, and the good parts can be found somewhere else.

This has excellent early 60's rock music, but all of it can be found somewhere else. Just buy "A Hard Day's Night" instead, and you won't regret it.

Collectors ONLY: 2/5
