Check out the Rock Genre New Releases

THE BEATLES...Meet The Beatles  (1964)
Meet The Beatles was released 50 years ago today in 1964.  It reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard album charts (DUH!),  What can be said about the Beatles that hasn't already been written before?  Nothing.  Nothing whatsoever.  Is this a great album?  Of course.  The fact that it is 50 years old is hard to grasp.  Yours truly was born 32 days later.  I was glad to pull out the vinyl and listen to this today.  I didn't have to dust it off as I do play my Beatles often.  It is as fantastic today as it was 50 years ago and will be 50 years from now.  I won't be around then but Meet The Beatles will be
