Jeffrey: A moving photo. Thanks for the add.

The three Beatles' hairstyles are about the same as when Ringo originally joined the band. At that time Ringo was told he would have to brush his hair forward and shave, but he could keep the sideburns.

Listening to Ticket to Ride right now! Mono 2009. Waiting for the 2004 Capitol Records Vol. 1 box to land on my door step. I can't wait to hear I Want To Hold Your Hand blast through in a reverbed weird stereo format! The mono versions are the reference and I love them but damn the Second Album is such a great rock and roll record!

Excuse my enthusiasm, that's two mugs of tea!

Here's another early picture of Ringo with George and Paul:

Ringo can play the Ray Charles beat and he likes to party!

Still waiting for the discs, and started looking up information about Dave Dexter, Jr., the Capitol Records exec in charge of Beatles product through 1966. He added the reverb and artificial stereo to those early Capitol Records sides that many of us grew up with.

Dexter signed lots of good Jazz acts to Capitol in the '40s and '50s.

First of all: That is Paul, isn't it? Sure looks like him, but then George is in his leathers and it looks like possibly Pete or John in the background, also in leathers. So maybe that's just someone who looks a lot like Paul? Billy Shears?

So I was reading through the Rickresource archives regarding the release of the 2004 Capitol box set, Vol. 1. One of the discussions pondered the possibility of the Butcher block cover for a reissue of the album Yesterday...and Today. Well, now that cover is provided as an option.

In 2004 we would have had the first official 1987 CD releases, which standardized the UK album canon, and the Anthology book and vids. Twenty years ago(!) the Yellow Submarine Songtrack was released which helped create demand for new remastered mixes of the all the albums. I'm very glad the 2009 mono box was released. As time moves on I'm appreciating it more and more as the sound the Beatles themselves were shaping. I'm mostly interested in revisiting the stereo versions of the Capitol records 2004 set and still glad to have CD versions of the soundtracks from A Hard Days Night and Help! because those albums help define the popular culture the Beatles' music was created in.

Below is a link to Richie Unterberger's take on Dave Dexter, Jr. There are some other interesting articles on line out there but this sets up a lot of what Mr. Dexter was about.

There's one interview in which Dexter stated the reason that he didn't take the option on the Beatles first recordings is that he couldn't stand Lennon's harmonica playing! Regardless of all of this, with Meet the Beatles, Dexter presented a dynamic introduction to the Beatles, emphasizing that they wrote their own music, and with the Second Album, that the band indeed rocked.
