I have a lot of issues with listening to a lot of the early Beatles stuff pre-1965. When i was younger, i loved to hear harmony and the simpicity of the music. However, as i have heard the songs many, many times and i got more sophicated about music, i kind of get annoyed at how cheap and weak the sounds were recorded (little or no bass, too much treble, drums being weak in the mix) - For me as a music fan, i sort of have to take a pass at some of the early Beatles songs just because the mixes are horrid and the songs have been played over-kill.
Even Rubber Sould as great as it is - you really have to aggressively try to hear the bass in the mixes and that's a goddamn disgrace especially on the Word and others. It's just poor recording really.
Sure, i get a kick out of hearing "Hard Days Night" or "8 days a week" on the anthology with a different mix or a raunchier sound. But, to sort of sit through "I want to hold your hand", "She loves you", "Love me do" - eh, i have to pass since there's nothing really special about these songs. Sure, something like "No Reply", "If i fell" or "I'll be back" i can hear again and again cause of the harmony or the mix of the songs or the fact that they are not over-played but listening to "I should have known better" or "Please mister post-man" - i'd have to refrain from playing them again because they don't offer anything to me anymore from a musical stand-point and it's a bit of over-kill. I feel the same way about most of the popular motown songs (My Girl, I'll be there") between golden oldies radio, movies, television, the saturation point of these songs is enough to make you want to bury the masters.
I kind of feel the saturation level of these early Beatles songs has been reached.
