The Making of Please Please Me.


The Making of Please Please Me
Please Please Me - the debut album release by the band, 22nd March 1963.

According to NME, March 8th 1963: "Things are beginning to move for the Beatles, the r-and-b styled British group. The disc 'Please Please Me' follows closely on the heels of their first hit 'Love Me Do' written by group members John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It looks like a bright future for the Beatles, but knowing them I don't think they'll let it go to their heads."

As recalled by George Martin "Please Please Me was done in a day - we started at 10 o'clock in the morning finished at 11 at night, and that was the record made."
