January 11, 1963

The Beatles second single, "Please, Please Me", their breakthrough record in the UK, is released on the Parlephone label today.  The B side on this version is "Ask Me Why", a perfectly serviceable song, but it is more prototype than finished product.  Had to get something on the flip side.  Both songs were recorded back in November at Abbey Road under the watchful eye of George Martin.

The label sends down a lightening bolt,  The boys cross their fingers, and begin to wait on the thunder.
