Background: Originally released in March 1963, Please Please Me was the first studio album by the Beatles.
The album topped the charts in Britain; in the U.S., the album was released as Introducing the Beatles with two tracks removed, and that version of the album reached #2 on the U.S. charts.
While released in the UK in 1963, Please Please Me wasn’t released in Japan until 1966, and that edition was in stereo and had a cover that was unique to Japan.
This 1982 edition was the first time the album had been released in Japan with the original cover and in mono.
Once “Please Please Me” rocketed to number one, the Beatles rushed to deliver a debut album, bashing out Please Please Me in a day. Decades after its release, the album still sounds fresh, precisely because of its intense origins. As the songs rush past, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the sound of the record itself without realizing how the album effectively summarizes the band’s eclectic influences. Naturally, the influences shine through their covers, all of which are unconventional and illustrate the group’s superior taste.
