The Beatles – Roll Over Beethoven (1963, Vinyl) - Discogs

#169: ” Roll Over Beethoven” from With The Beatles. Chuck Berry’s ‘Roll Over Beethoven” was a John, Paul and George favorite from the beginning- even before The Beatles were The Beatles. The original Chuck Berry tune is one of his many classics. Rolling Stone magazine ranked the Chuck Berry version at #97 in their 500 Greatest Songs Ever list. The Beatles cover here was sung by George. A decent version of the song. The much covered song was also done or overdone in 1973 by Electric Light Orchestra- whose version clocked in at 8 minutes. No one has touched the greatness of the original by Mr. Berry.

Long Tall Sally / I Call Your Name by The Beatles (Single; Odeon; 7 I  3074): Reviews, Ratings, Credits, Song list - Rate Your Music

#168: ‘I Call Your Name” from the Long Tall Sally EP in the UK, The Beatles Second Album in the US. Now found on Past Masters I. “I Call Your Name”- a Lennon-McCartney tune was written mainly by John Lennon. This was an old one- John had written it before the formation of The Beatles- and in 1963 gave it to Billy J. Kramer & The Dakotas. Unhappy with the Billy J. Kramer arrangement- John had The Beatles do a version of the song themselves. The Beatles version is noteworthy- as the first Beatles song to feature George on his Rickenbacker guitar.
