Brief Album Description: Rock 'n' Roll Music is a compilation album by The Beatles that consists of previously released Beatles tracks. The double album was issued on 7 June 1976 in the United States, on Capitol Records (catalogue number SKBO 11537), and on Parlophone (PCSP 719) in the United Kingdom, four days later. The album is a combination of some notable Lennon–McCartney originals, such as "Drive My Car", "Revolution", "Back in the U.S.S.R." and "Get Back", George Harrison's "Taxman", and a dozen cover versions of songs written by significant rock and roll composers of the 1950s, including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins and Larry Williams. Rock 'n' Roll Music was the first Beatles album to include "I'm Down", which had previously only been available as the B-side of the "Help!" single.

In October 1980, the album was divided into two single albums, and released as budget LPs in both the United States and the UK. Rock 'n' Roll Music: Volume 1 (US LP: Capitol SN-16020; UK LP: EMI/Music for Pleasure MFP 50506) contained the songs on sides one and two of the original album, while Rock 'n' Roll Music: Volume 2 (US LP: Capitol SN-16021; UK LP: EMI/Music for Pleasure MFP 50507) consisted of the songs on sides three and four. This time, the British release contained George Martin's Capitol versions. The budget-line albums featured new artwork, based on a picture of the group circa 1964-65. The US editions of the cover set the group in a crowd, while the British cover eliminated the crowd and placed the group against a stark white background.

Come In For A Visit To The Millenium MIDI Homepage


Thanks For Visiting And Be Sure To Tell All Your Friends. I have been an avid Beatles' fan since the early 70's. My collection is based upon my private collection of every original released LP in the US. Those who have seen the original records on vinyl will remember some of the albums you no longer see around: "Meet The Beatles"; "Beatles '65"; "Yesterday..and Today!" to name a few. I am now adding all the US compilation and Live albums to my webpage with songs in MIDI format, small 30-second songs in MP3 format and lastly, a lyrics page of every song. All album covers are viewable in a greatly larger version and free to download as are all the songs both in MIDI and MP3 formats. Though the MP3's are only 30 seconds long, they are perfect for ringtones for your phone. If you download a bunch then at least please consider a small donation. You can also purchase a special mix of four Beatles music CD's or you can purchase each Beatles album in MP3 format, but please keep it at 1-2 albums at a time because they all have to be emailed and thats a lot of files since every song is in 192 kbps. Thank you for your support...
