ALBUM INFORMATION

“A Hard Day’s Night composed of all Lennon and McCartney originals, had been out for only 2 months when the Beatles began recording this album. Although some of its songs were more sophisticated-- “ I’m a Loser”, ”No Reply” -- Lennon and McCartney were just not ablle to write a whole album’s worth. They did come up with 8 originals, however, and padded out the album with 6 versions of Beatle cover songs that were stage favorites.
