Rock music[edit]

I think Rock should be added to the infobox, since every song on the album falls into the genre of rock or one of it's subgenres (for example folk rock, rock and roll, etc.) Plus it's pretty obvious to anyone with a working pair of ears that this is a rock album.

If you read British rock The Beatles are included in the rock genre and given that this album came as part of the British Invasion, I agree.--Egghead06 (talk) 19:33, 15 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure that the 'British Invasion' has anything to do with the categorisation of musical genre. The album didn't "come as part of the British Invasion" - it was simply released. It depends, perhaps, on your perspective. However, the world isn't the USA, and the USA isn't the world! ;) -- (talk) 23:58, 16 December 2015 (UTC)
If you read WP:SUBJECTIVE and WP:PSTS, you'd see that articles should include interpretations of creative works by reliable authors rather than Wikipedia editors. Dan56 (talk) 21:53, 16 November 2013 (UTC)


Rvd4life, is this the Unterberger source that you said was good enough to add folk-rock to the infobox? GabeMc (talk|contribs) 00:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Yep, page 272 under discography. "Pop rock, folk rock" (with the sources), clearly defines the sound on the album and shows a clear transition leading onto the next album. From what I've read from Unterberger, "folk rock" comes into its own in 1965; with preceding albums merely having subtle folk influences. The way he discusses Help! and Rubber Soul are almost similar, with the latter leaning more towards "folk rock". Rvd4life (talk) 16:47, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
So, do you think that this source is sufficient to add folk rock to the infobox, because I certainly do. GabeMc (talk|contribs) 16:56, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Most definitely, I'll add it now. Rvd4life (talk) 17:00, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Great! You have my full support! GabeMc (talk|contribs) 17:09, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Editing "Help! (album)#Personnel"[edit]

I just edited the personnel section to say that George Harrison sang the lead vocals on both I Need You and You Like Me Too Much and played the guiro on Tell Me What You See. Additionally, I also edited this section in regards to "Tell Me What You See" to say that the song featured John Lennon on tambourine and Ringo Starr on claves. This is consistent with I Need You (Beatles song)#Personnel, You Like Me Too Much#Personnel and Tell Me What You See#Personnel. I hope this was helpful but if anyone wants to revert my edit, feel free.--Kevjgav (talk) 20:33, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
