US single release: Love Me Do

Eighteen months after it was released in the United Kingdom, The Beatles’ single ‘Love Me Do’/‘PS I Love You’ was issued in America.

The single was released on the short-lived Tollie label, with the serial number 9008. Tollie was a subsidiary to Vee-Jay, which had the rights to a number of early Beatles songs initially rejected by Capitol Records.

On 30 May 1964 the single topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, remaining there for just one week before being displaced by Chapel Of Love by The Dixie Cups.
