The Beatles - Please Please Me (1963).
Please Please Me is the debut studio album by the English rock band the Beatles.
Ten of the album's fourteen tracks were recorded in just one day - 11th February, 1963. These included a mixture of stage favourites and "Lennon-McCartney originals". The four remaining songs had been committed to tape in 1962 having formed the B-side of their debut release and both sides of their second single.
Please Please Me was recorded on a two-track BTR recording machine, leaving little opportunity for overdubs or elaborate arrangements. The album contained both sides of The Beatles' first two singles – Love Me Do, PS I Love You, Please Please Me and Ask Me Why – plus 10 new recordings made on 11 February 1963. That day's recording cost just £400 and lasted for just under 10 working hours. There wasn't a lot of money at Parlophone.
Please Please Me is the debut studio album by English rock band The Beatles, released on 22 March 1963 by Parlophone.
Please Please Me. The Beatles. Released March 22, 1963. Please Please Me Tracklist. 1. I Saw Her Standing There Lyrics. Recorded largely in a single day and released by Parlophone on 22nd March 1963, Please Please Me was the first of the twelve official UK album releases by The Beatles. It was recorded in a rushed fashion after debut single Love Me Do had reached a high of on the UK chart the previous October. Some songs were fully captured in a single live take, and the album features very few overdubs. This is in keeping with the band’s raw live sound that had built them a reputation in local Liverpool nightspots like The Cavern Club.
