UK EP release: Beatles For Sale No 2

9.00am, Friday 4 June 1965 (48 years ago)

Although the Beatles For Sale album had been available for six months, and The Beatles had already begun performing and releasing songs from their forthcoming Help!, Parlophone issued this four-track EP in the UK.

The group’s ninth EP sold notably less than its predecessors, and peaked at number five in the EP chart. It remained in the charts for 24 weeks.

The EP was only released in mono. There were no liner notes, although the front cover did feature a previously-unpublished photograph of The Beatles taken by Robert Freeman.

    the reason this ep did,nt sell was because the tunes where album tracks and so like myself already hade them what they could do was drop in a extended mix or remix of one of their songs to spice up the ep, they are still the best group of all time .
