The Beatles' Second Album
The album spent nine weeks at #2 on the Billboard 200, behind the United Artists A Hard Day's Night album.
This album was also released on the Parlophone label for sale only on American Armed Forces bases in Europe. These copies have great collector value. The album was also issued in Germany on the Odeon label. The German version contains the unedited version of "And I Love Her", which was later released on the US version of Rarities and a reprocessed stereo version of "Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand".
In 2004 this album was released for the first time on CD as part of The Capitol Albums, Volume 1 box set (catalogue number CDP 7243 8 66876 2 3.)
