The Beatles Rock 'n' Roll Music is a compilation double album by The Beatles that consists of previously released Beatles tracks. The album was issued on 7 June 1976 in the United States, on Capitol Records (catalogue number SKBO 11537, which is the number that appears on this particular album), and on Parlophone in the United Kingdom, four days later. The media speculated that the album was released to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first meeting between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The title, Rock 'n' Roll Music, presumably came from the song of the same name by Chuck Berry, The Beatles' version of which is included on the LP. The album is a combination of some notable Lennon-McCartney originals, such as "Drive My Car", "Revolution", "Back in the U.S.S.R." and "Get Back", George Harrison's "Taxman", and a dozen cover versions of songs written by significant rock and roll composers of the 1950s, including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Carl Perkins and Larry Williams. Rock 'n' Roll Music was the first Beatles album to include "I'm Down", which had previously only been available as the B-side of the "Help!" single. The front cover was also keeping in that 1950s early rock theme of mirrored foil-style cover art, a Coca Cola filled glass with straw for the album center, and the gatefold had images of vintage juke boxes, Coca-Cola and fifties style cars (image of gatefold included), making Ringo exclaim, "It looks like a Monkees reject"! But the band finally accepted that it was more in keeping with a retro look to their earlier Hamburg days, and the fans loved the songs. This original record album for "The Beatles Rock 'n Roll Music" is signed by Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, with an accompanying signed early 1960s original signed and certified photograph by John Lennon. Great piece. It is a G.E. Capitol estate consignment with reduced price.
