3 stars No, it's not prog in any way, shape or form. But it's here because the Beatles belong here so it deserves a review by someone who was there when it happened. Please, Please me might be their first album but this is the one that introduced the USA to what England already knew. I can only hope that someday another generation will have their own Fab Four that revolutionizes music as we know it. Even the picture on the cover indicated that these guys were a quartet of individuals that weren't fooling around. They were out to change everything we thought we knew about popular music and they did just that. While the songs included here are basically a further extension of their performance repertoire, they did include 8 original compositions that were better than anything else on the charts at the time. We all got caught up in the initial media-fed excitement but none of us could possibly envision where they were eventually going to take us. Try to listen with virgin ears and perhaps you will understand why this music was so radical to an audience that was fed up and bored of tired Elvis tunes and songs about hot rod cars.
