Pretty bold statement, Liam. Do you own Hendrix's Are You Experienced? Pearl Jam's 'Ten'? The Doors--The Doors? Nirvana's Bleach? Stone Temple Pilot's 'Core'? Jeff Buckley's 'Grace'? Led Zeppelin--Led Zeppelin? That's just to name a few. Those are some pretty STRONG debuts, man.

Apologies to all concerned - I was getting a little bit ahead of myself there. I should have said "the best debut album I have ever heard". Better?

This is a great album.
I remember coming home from buying the single of Twist and Shout on the Tollie label and listening to my Johnny sing that song. My Mother came into my room and asked me what I had just bought at the store across the street and I told her. She said, "You already have two singles and one album of theirs'. I hope that is gonna be the last record that you are going to buy."
That was 38 and 1/2 years ago.
I'm still buying them.[:D]

Well, as for me, the debút album´s highlight is "I Saw Her Standing There", this really rocks me!!! When John and Elton performed live that 12 years after on Madison Square and Elton released as a B-Side(should be A-side)of "Philadelphia Freedom"(didn´t care so much to this) single I was really excited and I bought that as fast as I could ´cos was a limited issue.

Peace.

I think ISHST is the only song on PPM that doesn't sound aged now.

PPM isn't my favourite album, because the J&P songs are not as good as the covers.


That is a point - many of the songs from their first four albums have aged considerably, and frequently they haven't aged as well as they might do. ISHST has stood the test of time, I feel, and possibly AMW, *maybe* PSILY . . . but the covers have aged better, probably because they are covers, and we don't subject them to the same scrutiny as we do songs written by John & Paul. But BIY is timeless . . . at least, this version. Piece of advice - DON'T listen to The Shirelles' version, it is so much cr@p!

I go for the following in this album:
1. Ask me Why
2. Baby it's you
3. Misery
4. I saw her standing there
5. Ps I love you
6. Do you want to know a secret?

As a debút album, that was a blockbuster in the charts and that was just the start of their career...the whole world would know awesome things coming from the Lads of Liverpool.
Life Is Very Short And There's No Time For Fussing And Fighting, My Friend...
Peace.
