Beatles For Sale (1964)

They didn't mess about in those days. When The Beatles turned up at Abbey Road Studios in 1963 they were given exactly one day to record their 14-song debut LP. Now, on CD, the mop-tops' haste is more apparent than ever: from every pant and gasp in John Lennon's explosive Twist And Shout, the last track cut at that exhausting session, to the sweaty and stilted fretwork of George Harrison's first, nervous solos.
