The Beatles discography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"My Bonnie" / "The Saints", by Tony Sheridan & The Beatles, the first Beatles record to be released.
"My Bonnie" / "The Saints", by Tony Sheridan & The Beatles, the first Beatles record to be released.

The Beatles released twelve albums (thirteen if The White Album is counted twice) in seven years. Their discography is complicated due to different US and UK releases, particularly in their early years at Capitol.

Historical background

The first four Beatles vinyl albums differ based on their location of release. Those released in the U.S. were of lower sound quality and had some of their songs omitted. Additionally, even though the first four Beatles albums were originally released as both monaural and stereo recordings in the United Kingdom, stereo record players were quite rare in the UK at the time. Naturally, then, George Martin and The Beatles only spent a lot of time on the mono mixes. Many early songs were later remastered by Capitol Records for the US as artificial stereo with bass on one side and treble on the other side, with lots of added echo. However, this was only done when the stereo mix of the song was not available or did not exist, as in the case of She Loves You. The Capitol release of Rubber Soul, however, has gained a lot of fans in the years since the release of the British albums on CD. The additions of "I've Just Seen a Face" and "It's Only Love" from "Help!" and the omission of "Drive my Car," "Nowhere Man," "What Goes On," and "If I Needed Someone" gives the album a different, folky flavour.

When it came time to release The Beatles' catalogue on CD, the decision was made to use the original British versions of the albums, since those were the "way The Beatles originally intended them to be". The initial releases of the first four CDs were of the original mono mixes. In 2004, Capitol Records released the first four American albums on CD as a box set and they represent the current (as of 2006) official stereo versions. No official stereo mix of the first four British albums had been released on compact disc, but there were plenty of "official looking" bootleg CDs in circulation that include the US stereo mixes and even bear the "Apple" logo. Martin and The Beatles started to spend more time on stereo mixes by 1965. However, many fans believe that the mono versions of Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the so-called White Album are superior to the stereo mixes.

As of 2006, many Beatles enthusiasts feel that the current EMI CD releases of the albums do not do them justice. The music was mastered to be played on vinyl, the cutting and playback of which is widely believed to add 'warmth' to the recording, and the CDs, produced during the early days of the format, do not compensate for the different medium. Given how important the sound quality of these albums was not only to The Beatles and George Martin, but also from a historical point of view, many purists still only listen to The Beatles albums on vinyl.

In the UK

This is a listing of the official studio albums released in the UK by The Beatles (not including compilations and the like).

Compilations and other releases in the UK

  • A Collection of Beatles' Oldies Parlophone Records (December 10, 1966) #7
  • The Beatles' First Polydor Records (August 4, 1967) (British issue of the 1964 German LP)
  • 1962-1966 (the "Red Album") Apple Records #2(April 19, 1973) (Re-released in Sep 1993 and hit UK number 3)
  • 1967-1970 (the "Blue Album") Apple Records #1(April 19, 1973) (Re-released in Sep 1993 and hit UK number 4)

  • Rock 'n' Roll Music Parlophone Records (June 10, 1976) #11
  • Magical Mystery Tour Parlophone Records (November 19, 1976) [sic] (Official UK issue of the American album using the Capitol masters, except for "Penny Lane," "Baby You're a Rich Man," and "All You Need is Love," which were the German mixes released on the Hör Zu! label in 1971. It became part of the official catalogue with its release on CD with every track in true-stereo. As an American import, the album peaked at #31 in 1968. Continued sales of the album as an import led to this release.)
  • The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl Parlophone Records (May 6, 1977) (Live performances from August 23, 1964 and August 30, 1965 at the Hollywood Bowl) #1
  • Love Songs Parlophone Records (November 19, 1977) #7
  • The Beatles Collection Parlophone Records (November 2, 1977) (A 14-record box set containing all of The Beatles' original Parlophone/Apple LPs along with Rarities)

  • The Beatles' Ballads Parlophone Records (October 13, 1980) (compilation) #17

  • Past Masters, Volume Two Parlophone Records (March 7, 1988) (singles from 1965-1970 and other songs that were left off later albums) #46
Note: The reason for the Past Masters compilations are so that every song The Beatles released in 1962-1970 could be on a CD. They include singles and B-sides, two songs sung in German, the contents of an EP released in 1964 that had four additional songs, the "single" versions of the songs "Get Back" and "Let It Be", and a version of "Across the Universe" that had bird-like sound effects. Past Masters was also issued as a 2-LP set on November 10, 1988.

  • Live at the BBC Apple Records (November 30, 1994) (Contains 69 songs The Beatles recorded for various BBC radio shows that never were recorded for Parlophone/Capitol/EMI.

  • Anthology 1 Apple Records (November 21, 1995) (Containing early performances, live shows, demos, out-takes in the period 1958 to 1964 and the first "new" Beatles song since the band broke up in 1970) #2

Christmas records

The Beatles Christmas album compilation

The Beatles also recorded annual Christmas records for their fan club members. From 1963 to 1969 these were released as 7" flexidiscs on LYN. In 1970 the 7 previous records were put onto a 12" vinyl record. These remain largely unavailable today, with the exception of one track, "Christmas Time Is Here Again", which was edited and released on the Free As a Bird CD single in 1994:

  • The Beatles Christmas Record, LYN 492 (1963)
  • Season's Greetings from The Beatles, LYN 757 (1964)
  • The Beatles 3rd Christmas Record, LYN 948 (1965)
  • Everywhere It's Christmas, LYN 1145 (1966)
  • Christmas Time Is Here Again, LYN 1360 (1967)
  • Beatles 1968 Christmas Record, LYN 1743/4 (1968)
  • Happy Christmas 1969, LYN 1970/1 (1969)
  • From Then to You, (UK) Apple LYN 2154 / The Beatles' Christmas Album (US) Apple SBC 100 (1970)

In Canada

The division of Capitol Records in Canada released three albums and a number of singles in 1963 and 1964 before aligning with the American division and releasing the same albums as in the US. Unlike the US, Capitol of Canada said yes to The Beatles from day one, as many British artists had obtained hit records in Canada previously, unlike in the USA. The first Canadian release was "Love Me Do" on February 4, 1963.

  • Beatlemania! With the Beatles, Capitol Canada (November 25, 1963)
  • Twist and Shout, Capitol Canada (February 3, 1964)
  • The Beatles' Long Tall Sally, Capitol Canada (May 11, 1964)

In the US

In the United States, as noted above, The Beatles albums were rearranged, retitled and remixed. Some of the US releases were nearly identical to their UK counterparts, often only varying by one or two songs. Most releases contained songs that were also found on other records, which made things difficult for the American Beatles fan trying to purchase the band's entire catalog. By 1967, all US releases matched the UK releases exactly. Some of the US releases included:
