All Or Nothing - Various - The Immediate Collection - From The Era That Inspired Brit Pop (CD)
Steelbeard18 June UTC [ ]. Yes this is all very clear. In less than 48 hours, the entire Wikipedia has been transformed into the dullest place one can possibly imagine to find information on music. Well done. Due to the elimination of the cover photos, the album listings in the two catalogue box set articles have been converted to tables. My original question has not yet been answered: is it a good idea to take a photo of my copy of The Beatles Collection box set showing the contents? As mentioned above, the 'cover' of The Beatles Box Set already shows its contents.
This poll is NOT about changing policy. But about the interpretation of existing policy. In this respect this poll does NOT challenge the normal policy making procedures. The purpose of this poll is primarily to discover how opinions on the matter are dvided. I contend that the previous use of fair-use images as previously existed on this page falls within the boundaries of existing policy.
Specifically in Wikipedia:Non-free content criteria it states. I have just been shown Durin's interpretation of our fair use overuseactually specifically mentioning this page.
I reccomend all those interested in this debate have a read. Using images of album covers in this article would be fine if the images were accompanied by critical commentary about the covers. It might require some shuffling around, but the discography would be a fantastic venue to discuss themes in the covers over time. Can't the Wikimedia Foundation just ask the record companies or All Or Nothing - Various - The Immediate Collection - From The Era That Inspired Brit Pop (CD) if we can use the images on discography pages?
They'll probably let us. So if all the copyright holders consent to the album covers being used in discography pages, why can't we use them? But what about Image:Tianasquare.
Can't it be the same thing as that? The AP gave Wikipedia permission to use this image. Is this correct? It seems doubtful because it means "she loves herself" or alternately formal for "You love yourself". Did somebody change this as a joke or was it really released in Canada thus? Hi everyone! Thanks for good work and all the information available here! Listening to some Beatles, I looked up here to find the discography.
I have one comment for improvement. Counting the number of singles sold based on the RIAA certifications is not very concise. The number 42 million in the States is the minimum, probably not the actual number. After all, not all the platinum sellers would have sold exactly 1 million. The fact that they are platinum certified, but not doubly so, would also occur if a single has sold 1,9 million.
I wrote the following request to start a constructive debate about the structure of this article about five months ago - in March With the exception of a single response discussing a valid aspect about one very specific issue there were no responses.
This is such an important article about the Beatles. I genuinely believe there ought to be some changes in sequencing and categorizing. But I would prefer to build consensus rather than making unilateral changes.
So again I invite people to read my observations and engage in debate about the topic. I look forward to responses! Very gratified to have had these two responses.
Perhaps there will be others too. Meanwhile I am preparing a suggestion of how a re-formatted article might look. And suggestion of how to deal with anomalies etc. It should be listed first and placed in historical context. It is the foundation on which the rest of the world's Beatles releases were based. And the importance to the Beatles of their UK catalogue is underscored by the fact that when the Beatles eventually in the mids wrested a measure of control over their recordings from EMI - they insisted on standardizing their catalogue for worldwide CD release based on the original UK releases.
With a couple of adaptations such as the MMT album for pragmatic reasons. On the other hand - even though the content of the US releases was primarily record company ordained and in some cases those releases tampered with the audio mixes created by George Martin and the Beatles - we cannot entirely relegate the US releases.
They had immense commercial and cultural impact in the US at the time. Millions of US Beatles fans between grew up with those releases as official Beatles releases. Which they were in legal terms - if not in artistic terms.
The intricacies of how they came about were not known at the time. And the fact that Apple eventually acquiesced to demand to release two box sets of some of the Capitol releases was an acknowledgement of that cultural impact. So there has to be a full reflection of the US releases. And there needs to be a succinct note that explains how and why the US releases differed from the official UK releases.
There need to be some brief preambles before certain sections. In an era of mp3s and digital downloads - the concept of 7" vinyl singles, 4-track EPs and 12" vinyl albums will not be understood by every reader. And the relative importance to the Beatles at the time of those different formats needs to be succinctly explained. There should definitely be a distinction between releases at different times. A During the Beatles' active period B Record Company compilations, releases and reissues There needs to be a separate section for "The Hamburg Recordings" or "The Polydor Recordings" - as these were not recorded as - or officially part of the Beatles' canon of work.
There probably should be a standardized format of footnotes or some other way of dealing with the various anomalies. Those are my interim thoughts. Davidpatrick20 August UTC [ ].
As a non-expert on the Beatles I'm a little fuzzy here about the final status of the Beatles' corpus of studio releases lets ignore anthologies, bootlegs, rarities, etc. At the end of everything is the total corpus of all 12 albums the same or different if you compare US and British editions?
If not, what's missing? Are their major songs that are not in these canonical 12 i. I suggest that someome re-create the discography page because it is VERY hard to read and to understand. My mom played an LP album when I was younger. I remember it having a distinctly brown case and having certain tracks such as YesterdayP. I Love YouGirland Michelle. I couldn't find it in the discography.
Has anyone heard of this album? Reading the above, some good points have been made. Here's what I think:. The UK discography should be on one page, the US on another. Sorry to Canadians, but I don't think the Canada listing is of equivalent importance. But it too should have its own page. Next comes compilations in order of release. Compilations should include "Yellow Submarine" only 4 new Beatles tracks, padded out with 2 oldies and soundtrack music - not a studio album and From Then To You currently not included.

This version is similar to Jimi Hendrix's interpretation, except that here the organ plays a much more dominant role.
It certainly makes for a powerful ending to the album. While by no means entirely original, indeed the evidence that they were to a large extent following a path already trodden by Vanilla Fudge is undeniable, it must be remembered that this album predates by several years the music made by many of the prog bands who appear on this site. On that basis, Deep Purple's classification as a Proto prog outfit is already secured by this album alone.
Note that this review reflects the order of the tracks as they appeared on music-cassette. This cover of The Beatles has been made richer than the original version with more symphonic touch demonstrating soaring organ work, powerful drumming and atmospheric vocal. The chorus line has been made different and it's really nice. The music interlude showing Jon Lord organ solo is also stunning. Ritchie provides his guitar in its raw format and All Or Nothing - Various - The Immediate Collection - From The Era That Inspired Brit Pop (CD) it pleasurable for listeners.
By simple definition these two opening tracks are prog. The organ solo exploration in "And The Address" of the track is excellent. Nick Simpler's bass guitar lines are quite dynamics and tight. Ritchie provides his solo nicely. Again, I notice Nick Simpler bass guitar work is excellent.
Ritchie had not shown his powerful guitar solo yet. The music interlude in the middle of the track filled with Jon Lord's stunning organ work augmented by powerful drumwork by Ian Paice.
Overall, talking about Deep Purple album I think this one has reasonable number of prog elements in the music especially through the work of Jon Lord and dynamic bass guitar lines by Nick Simpler. It's an interesting album in the band's early days.
Keep on proggin'.! Deep Purple recorded a lot of cover songs for their early albums and three out of eight tracks on "Shades of Deep Purple" are not written by the band. A bit of a shame really as all three cover songs drag the album down IMO. The cover of The Beatles track "Help" is especially awful. It borders blasphemy IMO. A great track that one. Other than that the music is greatly influenced by hard rock artists like Cream and Jimi Hendrix.
Ritchie Blackmore shines a couple of times too. His trademark guitar sound is already in the making. There are not many memorable riffs though maybe except for the Hendrix like main riff in "Mandrake Root".
The production is raw and I imagine that the album was recorded within a short time frame. An album full of original tunes would have earned them a 3 star rating but with the cover tracks I can only give the album a 2. Ian Paice is behind the drums, and from the beginning proves to be the absolute perfect drummer for this group. Why is that, you may ask? It is because he has the technical skills and creativity to keep up with the rest of the group and follow the non-trivial rhythms that come with Blackmore and Lord solos, but also has the restraint to keep his drumming as the support of the band and to not attempt to dominate the sound except, of course, for the occasional drum solo, sigh.
In other words, none of this nonstop "Me Bonzo! Me see drum! Bonzo smash! But I digress. Rounding out the group are bassist Nick Simper, who is ok but largely indistinguishable, and Rod Evans, the lead singer, who sure does a good croon when the songs finally come around to vocal parts. So what do all these parts add up to? They add up, in my opinion, to a band that's both quite impressive and quite average all at once. On the positive side, this band can play just fine - not only do the band members have solid technical skills, they sound and seem confident in their abilities to pull off their styles, not too creative amalgamations of other sources they may sometimes be, with a good understanding of what the hell it is they're doing, as well as with a nice amount of flair.
On the minus side, both the originals and covers often feel a bit too much like exercises in style and technique; the originals sound like the band thought that having a song in a "poppy style" or "rock style" is enough, and the covers sound like the band just wanted to show off the cool things they could do with other people's tracks.
This isn't to say the covers are necessarily bad exercises, of course - their cover of "Hush" by some guy named Joe South is freaking great, a nice upbeat pop song turned into a cross between a nice upbeat pop song and a trippy-as-hell anthem with all sorts of cool keyboard sounds and guitar wails and all those other things that make Purple Purple.
Their cover of Cream's "I'm So Glad" is also quite enjoyable, even though it requires sitting through a lengthy Lord-driven introduction, which isn't awful but doesn't hold my attention long beyond a minute or so. The song itself kinda rules, though, if only because it's so faithful to the feel and vibe of the original, even though it doesn't sound like a carbon copy at all. The other two covers are a little worse, though. It's not bad, but six minutes is a bit much All Or Nothing - Various - The Immediate Collection - From The Era That Inspired Brit Pop (CD) such a thing, in my opinion.
Except for the parts that work off the themes of the introduction, of course. In other words, it takes to get through freakin' "Hey Joe.
Fortunately, the riff is ok, and the solos are as entertaining as anything else on the record, so while this "song" is a bit too self-indulgent wanky, it's at least a decently done self-indulgent wanky.
And hey, the surf-rocker "Love Help Me" has some more great guitar wailing to go with the standard surf elements. On the other hand, "One More Rainy Day" is too sappy and flacid for my tastes, especially in the vocal parts, and definitely shows that the band didn't really know what it was doing in "conventional" songwriting. Not yet, anyway. For all the ripoffs and unrestrained soloing, there's nevertheless a great deal of enthusiasm coming out of this album, and competent enthusiasm at that, that's quite infectious to yours truly.
They kinda remind me, at this point, of the very first incarnation of Yes that would come into being a year later, albeit with their songwriting skills a little less developed, and that can't help but make me smile. At least a bit. Don't go running out to get this, but if you've filled up on Mk. II and want more Purple, this is a good place to turn. Setting aside the fact that this is an album without the band's best singer Ian Gillian, 'Shades Of Deep Purple' is often overlooked for the fact that it is composed greatly of cover songs rather than original material, although there are still a few songs here that the band wrote themselves.
Taken for what it is, this debut is actually quite good, and really sets the stage for more successful music in the future. Surprisingly enough, the cover songs are the real draw to this album, but as the inventive rockers that they are, the covers are really made their own, taking 'Shades' from the forgettable album that many deem it to be, to a fairly interesting place in rock history.
While the bluesy 'Mandrake Root' will attract the most attention from Deep Purple fans due to the fact that it has met a great deal of performances in live settingsI find myself most attracted to the covers that the band has done here.
The cover of the Beatles song 'Help! While the original track was fairly upbeat and catchy, Deep Purple turns the song into a drawn out psychedelic experience. This is very refreshing to hear, especially from an album that is almost half a century old by this point. The band was certainly heavier than most at the time, but they still have ample loads of British pop in their sound, especially when it comes to the vocals.
Although not as good as Gillian, Rod Evans does a good job of fronting the band. There is nothing particularly excellent here and Deep Purple would certainly go on to much better things, but this should be an interesting experience for anyone wanting a nice piece of hard rock from the late 60's.
Of the tracks, most are tentative although again their virtuosity was already showing, as the instrumental opener And The Address clearly makes this statement. Hush is a classic and is a nice rock tune, very well connected with the time and still standing well after all these years. Some arrangements are a bit too pompous and a bit pointless, like in their cover of the Beatles Help. Still, their energy and talent are visible and as a first efford, quite strong.
Deep Purple would easily surpass this CD in a very short time - Book Of Talesyn, incredibly recorded just a few months after this is a great leap forward - but I found it quite interesting and more than just a curio for fans and collectors. The object of the game is to flood your opponent's board with Nuisance Puyo by making chains with several multi-colored Puyo, which explode when four of the same color are connected. Despite its relative obscurity in the All Or Nothing - Various - The Immediate Collection - From The Era That Inspired Brit Pop (CD), due in no small part to a history of not being localizedit is arguably one of the more influential puzzle series; its competition-based gameplay and colorful stable of characters were groundbreaking in the early '90s and inspired a wide variety of competitors.
