50 years ago, a promising young band from Liverpool released their first album. After the initial success of their first 2 singles “Love Me Do” and “Please Please Me“, the band went into the studio to record 10 additional tracks to make up an album. Recorded in one day (!), it was released on March 22 1963 in the UK.
By May the album was on top of the charts, and stayed there for 30 weeks until the Beatles second album, With the Beatles, replaced it at #1.
Few people at the time would have guessed how much the band would evolve over the next 7 years, and the impact the 4 musicians would have on rock music and popular culture. Truly a classic album!
