Beatles History: "Please Please Me" Released by Vee-Jay in U.S.

On January 30, 1964, "Please Please Me" was released by Vee-Jay records in the United States. The B side was "From Me to You." The Beatles fact worth noting here is that these songs had already been hits in the UK for many months, but Capital Records did not think they would sell in the U.S. With the Sullivan appearance looming and the escalation of Beatlemania in Europe, Vee-Jay obviously made a wise move, helping to pave the way for the Beatles' first American tour in the process.
