Music Talk: 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die
Album: “With The Beatles” by The Beatles (1963)
Bit Of Background: This album was the first by a British Band to ever sell over a million copies. Eight of its tracks, along with the iconic album cover, also became “Meet the Beatles,” the bands debut release in America. It contains a combination of both original and cover songs and carries a Motown influence through many of the tracks.

Must you hear it before you die? Generally, most people like The Beatles. There are some people out there who will say, “I just don’t see what was so great about them,” and that’s fine (I guess). But even if they’re not you’re style, you have to acknowledge that they were pretty damn good. I’m definitely partial to them and I do think that everyone should hear this album before the end of their time. In fact, even if you haven’t sought it out, chances are you’ve heard at least one or two songs off of this album anyway. That’s the amazing thing about this album. It’s not even one song that turned into a universally known track. This was their debut album and several of the songs are widely recognized around the world. Try and beat that.
