October 5th, is an important day for faithful followers of THE BEATLES – EMI released the Beatles first single, Love Me Do c/w P.S. I Love You in 1962.
In mid-September 1962, EMI scheduled the release of the Beatles first single for October 5.
Covers all of the Beatles singles, albums and extended play discs issued in the U.K. from 1962 through 1970. The book details how all of the recordings released by the group during that time were written, recorded and marketed in the U.K. — presented in the same style as Spizer’s previous critically-acclaimed books on the Beatles American record releases. In addition to discs with Parlophone labels, the book covers the Apple singles and albums manufactured and distributed by EMI, as well as the Fan Club Christmas discs and the Polydor releases of the group’s Hamburg recordings.
