Default It Was Fifty Years Ago Today ....

March 22, 1963.........

PLEASE PLEASE ME is released...........

According to NME, March 8th 1963: "Things are beginning to move for the Beatles, the r-and-b styled British group. The disc Please Please Me follows closely on the heels of their first hit Love Me Do written by group members John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It looks like a bright future for the Beatles, but knowing them I dont think theyll let it go to their heads."

As recalled by George Martin "Please Please Me was done in a day - we started at 10 o'clock in the morning finished at 11 at night, and that was the record made."

WOW - It seems like "yesterday". No pun intended.

I just got back from the Beatlemaniacs of the Villages meeting. We discussed the album and played all of the songs from it. I t was recorded on Feb in that marathon session. Nine hours and forty five minutes excluding the breaks and it was released in England on March 16, 1963

Here's a trivia question for you. when was the album, Please Please Me released in the United States?
