The Beatles, Please Please Me

£60.00

The Beatles’ Please Please Me album was rush-released by Parlophone on 22 March 1963 to capitalise on the enormous success of the title track. The iconic front cover shot was taken at the then headquarters of EMI Limited at 20 Manchester Square in London’s West End, in early 1963, by Angus McBean. Given that the UK album chart in those days tended to be dominated by more ‘adult’ tastes such as film soundtracks and easy listening vocalists, it was a surprise when Please Please Me hit the top of the chart in May 1963 and remained there for thirty weeks, before being replaced by With The Beatles. Please Please Me didn’t receive an official US release until 1987, but Introducing… The Beatles, issued early in 1964 on the Vee-Jay label, and The Early Beatles, released by Capitol the following year, did contain many of the songs from the British release.
