When the Beatles stepped off that plane at JFK airport in 1964 for the first time no one could have guessed that American rock music would never be the same.
“Meet the Beatles!” was the Beatles second studio album and their first album available in the US. Infectious singles like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” and “All My Loving” quickly took the country by storm and Beatlemania was soon in full effect.
The record shot to #1 on the charts that year and teenage girls everywhere couldn’t get enough!
Rolling Stone has listed “Meet the Beatles!” at #50 on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and it’s easy to see why. With unparalleled song writing from John Lennon and Paul McCartney, it’s safe to say that “Meet the Beatles,” along with every other Beatles record, has secured its place among the greatest in rock history.
