Early concert with Pete Best on drums. We used to play lunchtime dates. We'd get up and go down to the Cavern and play from noon till about two. It was very casual; we'd have our tea and sandwiches and cigarettes on stage, sing a couple of tunes and tell a few jokes. Early photo session with Pete Best. Ringo Comes On Board. From The Cavern to Shea Stadium, Bradford to the Philippines - The Beatles played all kinds of gigs, recorded all kinds of performances. The Beatles Live At The Washington Coliseum, 1964.

It contained 11 songs from Please Please Me; I Saw Her Standing There, Misery and There's A Place were omitted.

Notes

Capitol rainbow label variation pressed 1968-69 that had "A subsidiary of Capitol Industries Inc." text added along bottom perimeter text of label.

Notes

1986-7 rainbow label version with rim text inside the colorband. No barcode.
Printed on posterboard stock.

There were 2 80s Black Capitol rainbow band label variations. This one was pressed 1986-87 at Specialty Record Corporation (The large S surrounding R and C stamped in the run-out), also identified by smooth indent/notch approx 3/4" from edge of label and glossy finish. The SRC pressings also have more etchings on the run-out. Both sides also are stamped MASTERED BY CAPITOL.

The earlier 1983-85 rainbow label pressings were pressed by Capitol without the smooth indentation, no SRC stamp and a dull label finish.

Some 1986-87 pressings may have a 3" x 1" red hype sticker "Includes Twist and Shout ST-2309 Printed in U.S.A." that was placed there to tie in with the song being featured in films at the time "Ferris Beuller's Day Off" and "Back to School".

Cat # ST-2309 appears on the label.
Cat # ST 2309 appears on the spine and rear sleeve, top-right.
