The Beatles Second Album

The Beatles Second Album was released by Capitol Records on April 10, 1964 and was actually the third Beatles album released in America since Introducing the Beatles had been released in early January of 1964 by Vee Jay Records. This album was also part of 2004 CD box set, The Capitol Albums, Volume 1. It was produced by George Martin.

The album took songs from With the Beatles, A Hard Day's Night (Parlophone version), and British singles to produce the following track list:

Side One

Roll Over Beethoven
Thank you Girl
You've Really Got a Hold on Me
Devil in Her Heart
You Can't Do That

Side Two

Long Tall Sally
I Call Your Name
Please Mr. Postman
I'll Get You
She Loves You

With songs such as "Roll Over Beethoven," "Long Tall Sally," "She Loves You," "Money," and "You Can't Do That," the album was high energy rock and roll and helped fuel Beatlemania in America after the Beatles appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. It remains a favorite of American fans to this day.
