The Beatles Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Beatles at Norman Records

Where to start, really? Pretty much inventing popular music as we know it, The Beatles had an utterly remarkable career arc - going from 'Love Me Do' to 'A Day In The Life' in just four years. Their albums quickly got more sophisticated as the 60s w...read more »

The Beatles
Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are bloody marvelous.

The Beatles
The Singles Collection

A mouth-watering prospect for any Beatlemaniac, The Singles Collection contains all 23 UK-issued singles by The Beatles on 7” vinyl from ‘Love Me Do’ to Nineties-released ‘Free As A Bird’, complete with original B-sides and artwork from a different international territory assigned to each single. The box set also houses a 40-page booklet with photos, memorabilia and in-depth essays from Fab Four historian Kevin Howlett. 

The Beatles
Abbey Road – 50th Anniversary Edition

Absolutely everything about The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road screams ‘iconic’ - the much-parodied artwork, the second half’s famous song suite, the top class contributions from all of the Fab Four (yes, even Ringo’s ‘Octopus’s Garden’...). In 2019, it gets the 50th anniversary re-mastering treatment. With the new stereo mix handled by Giles Martin at the famous itself, this re-issue comes in: standard CD; double CD; single, double or triple vinyl; or a lavish 4xCD box-set with hardcover book and Blu-Ray. Various versions include outtakes and demos. 

The Beatles
Let It Be

The Beatles last hurrah was the long gestating 'Let It Be' album. Actually conceived as a project before the recording of their penultimate album Abbey Road, various inter band squabbles and the temporary departure of George Harrison meant that it wasn't finished by 1970 at which point Phil Spector had been drafted in to slather strings all over it. Not particularly valued on release, it has gained traction over the years most likely when listeners realised the sort of music the four members would make solo. 

The Beatles
Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after it and is still doing so. Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl on Parlophone.

The Beatles
Abbey Road

Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven songs on side two that run into one another make up a suite of perfectly formed ditties and er….Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. A Classic.

Paul McCartney
Egypt Station - Explorers Edition

Egypt Station was Paul McCartney’s 17th solo album - it feels like he’s done more. Anyway, it was pretty well received by critics upon its release in late 2018. Now we have the Explorers Edition. It is expanded to include Egypt Station II, which includes a bunch of live and studio tracks recorded around the same time and on Macca’s Egypt Station-related travels.

The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

Limited edition picture disc reissue of this classic 1966 tune from the legendary popular beat combo. The disc features images of the Yellow Submarine and  George, Paul, Ringo and John in cartoon form - from the iconic psychedelic animation of the same name. 'Eleanor Rigby' is included on the flipside. We're only able to score a handful of copies so don't sleep!

The Beatles
The Beatles (White Album)

The Beatles. Now there's a thing.  The White Album (initially known as just the Beatles) was the blueprint of what became known as 'the classic over indulgent double album that would have made a great single LP'. It was released 50 years ago today and still much of it sounds like Guided By Voices 'August By Cake'. This super duper re-issue isn't just a rehash of the original thing with posh packaging  - it contains the Esher demos  - a 27 track 'unplugged' demo that has only been heard by the most in the know the Beatles fans.   

The Beatles
The Beatles

Almost 50 years on and we’re still having pub debates as to what should have been on The White Album, or left off. Even if you find Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da grating, or Piggies overly cynical, would you really want it any other way? I’ll always argue that Revolution 9 is a roaring success that granted rock musicians the licence to get their hands dirty applying razors to tape like they were Stockhausen himself. Glass Onion and Savoy Truffle have always been top larks in my book. Ringo’s turns are charming as hell and McCartney invents noise rock and / or metal on Helter Skelter. Lennon is open-hearted on Dear Prudence, beguilingly jaded on Sexy Sadie and Yer Blues, with Yoko upsetting the applecart in a much-needed way. And you might even have forgotten Harrison’s heavenly Long, Long, Long. The best argument for artistic self-indulgence and grumpy bandmates ever, sounding better than ever on remastered (double, of course) vinyl.

John Lennon
Imagine

The product designers at Universal skipped lunch finishing this one. At the lowest level, this reissue of fairly successful Beatle and fur coat collector John Lennon’s career highlight is a new stereo mix. Clamber up the ladder of deluxe formats and you’ll be met by a daunting barrage of remixes, b-sides, outtakes, hitherto-unheard demos, Blu-Rays with the album in surround-sound versions, documentaries, the Imagine and Gimme Some Truth films remastered… and a poster. AND two postcards that you will never, ever send.

Paul McCartney
Egypt Station

Say what you like but Paul McCartney ain't doing bad for nearly 80. The former Beatle has had one of the most incredible careers in music history ranging from brilliance to some of the worst music made by a human and he's still at it. Though lead single 'Come On To Me' sounds bizarrely like Flight of the Conchords 'If You're Into It' we're sure there are better things lurking in here. 

The Beatles
The Beatles Christmas Records Box

Wishing you all a Fab Christmas, here are The Beatles, with their Beatles Christmas Records Box. This collection recreates the experience of being in the Beatles fan club during the sixties, which meant you’d get a flexi-disc in the post with a festive message every year. This box-set presses each of the seven messages to its own colour of 7” vinyl, in lovely facsimile sleeves in a box-set with a booklet.

Paul and Linda McCartney
Ram

Universal have a full brace of Paul McCartney reissues to show off. 1971's Ram is Paul’s first record made with his wife Linda McCartney, and it is widely interpreted as a dig at John Lennon: Ram was of course being recorded and released in the aftermath of the break-up of some band called The Beatles. CD and LP reissues.

Paul McCartney
McCartney II

Universal present a full brace of new Paul McCartney‘s post-Beatles material in reissue form. McCartney II was recorded in 1979, as Wings were on their way out, and was assembled entirely by Paul himself, using a stack of synthesisers. And it includes the wonderful deep McCartney cut ‘Temporary Secretary’! CD and LP reissues.

Paul McCartney
McCartney

Universal have a full brace of Paul McCartney reissues to show off, giving the listening public an opportunity to examine the Beatle’s solo work once more. McCartney was his very first, released in 1970 and recorded in secret while his main band was still just about active. Paul plays almost every single part of the album, which has a nice and loose feel to it. CD and LP reissues.

Paul McCartney and Wings
Band On The Run

Universal present a full brace of new Paul McCartney‘s post-Beatles material in reissue form. Band On The Run is perhaps the best known of Paul’s records with Wings, featuring the big hit title track among other 70’s easy-rock bangers. CD and LP reissues, both with restored artwork and a download code.

The Beatles
Yellow Submarine

By 1969 the Beatles could do what the hell they liked and if they wanted to release an animated film then no-one was stopping them. Taken on its own terms Yellow Submarine was an odd release. It contains four new songs, two already released songs and a whole side of it was devoted to George Martin's orchestral score to the film. A mixed bag then but an essential document for completists. 

The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Anniversary Edition

A big old grand reissue of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, put together especially for the fifty year anniversary of the seminal Beatles record. Various editions of this psychedelic classic are available, with treats like early takes, stereo mixes and unreleased making-of documentary scattered around the editions. Choose between CD, 2CD, 2LP and six-disc super box-set versions!

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With The Lions

As the second part of John and Yoko’s Unfinished Music series, Life With The Lions is one of the least popular albums John Lennon was ever involved with. Partner Yoko Ono took a Fluxus-style approach, and the album consists of howling, feedback, readings of press clippings etc. Better than the any Beatles record (fight it out in the customer review box if you like!) and reissued by Secretly Canadian.

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins

Two Virgins is generally known as one of the least popular albums John Lennon was ever involved with: yay! Yoko Ono’s avant-art practices are clearly the heaviest influence here on this abstract suite of musique concrete, bird-song, conversation and other less-than-traditionally-musical sounds. Excellent to see it reissued by Secretly Canadian!

The Beatles
Please Please Me

You know what, no. We won’t. We won’t please you, Beatles - no, we won’t. You’ve been asking for too long now boys, and sometimes you have to learn that you’re not going to get your own way all the time. Sorry John, Paul, George and Ringo, but we’re putting our foot down. Go off and please yourselves.

The Beatles
Help!

Welp, this is by The Beatles, so not much need for us to tell you what’s going on here (obviously). Help! is the one with, among other things, ‘You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away’ and ‘Help!’ (obviously) on it, and is the soundtrack to their 1965 film Help! (obviously). The songwriting is good (obviously), this new edition has been remastered (obviously) and Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr were the best band ever (obviously).
