Nevertheless, that decision still impresses, not only because the album is so strong, but because it was written and recorded at a time when the Beatles were constantly Too Many - Fredriks Rock N Roll Trio - Fredriks Rock N Roll Trio, giving regular BBC concerts, appearing on television and releasing non-LP singles and EPs, as well as filming their first motion picture.
In that context, the achievement of A Hard Day's Night is all the more astounding. Not only was the record the de facto soundtrack for their movie, not only was it filled with nothing but Lennon - McCartney originals, but it found the Beatles truly coming into their own as a band by performing a uniformly excellent set of songs. All of the disparate influences on their first two albums had coalesced into a bright, joyous, original sound filled with ringing guitars and irresistible melodies.
They had certainly found their musical voice before, but A Hard Day's Night is where it became mythical. In just a few years, they made more adventurous and accomplished albums, but this Weekend - Jim Rafferty - Dont Talk Back the sound of Beatlemania in all of its giddy glory -- for better and for worse, this is the definitive Beatles album, the one every group throughout the ages has used as a blueprint.
Listening to the album, it's easy to see why. Decades after its original release, A Hard Day's Night 's punchy blend of propulsive rhythms, jangly guitars, and infectious, singalong melodies is remarkably fresh.
There's something intrinsically exciting in the sound of the album itself, something to keep the record vital years after it was recorded. Even more impressive are the songs themselves. John and Paul must have known how strong the material is -- they threw the pleasant trifle "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" to George and didn't give anything to Ringo to sing.
