The Beatles' Second AlbumBook - 2007
"The Beatles' Second Album runs only 22 minutes, with just 11 songs - many of which the group didn't write. Despite that, the album personifies the Beatles - the world's greatest rock'n'roll band, according to rock'n'roll critic and author Dave Marsh. With its overload of rock'n'roll, R&B, and early soul influence, including "Roll Over Beethoven," and "Long Tall Sally," The Beatles' Second Album offers a great vantage point from which to see the group's enormous impact on pop music and culture. Marsh breaks new ground by focusing on the Beatles' US recordings and how they evolved from British releases at a time when the two nations' approaches to rock'n'roll production were vastly different."--BOOK JACKET.
