The first pop album to sell over a million copies, With The Beatles was recorded over a three month period. While the Beatles had five years to prepare for their first album, they had only five months to prepare for their second. Whereas before, songs were written at Paul’s home where the band rehearsed, many of the songs written for With The Beatles were written in hotel rooms or on planes or buses. Also, the Beatles began writing more personal songs, using the word “you” in the title, to connect more with their mostly female audiences. The initial 1987 CD release was mono only, and the 2009 remastered edition was issued in stereo while the mono mix was included in the Beatles In Mono box set.

All My Loving hi-hat intro version

The German edition featured a different mix of All My Loving known as the “hi-hat intro” version, in which the song begins with 5 hi-hat taps and a sharp intake of breath on the right channel. This mix was unique to several European releases.
