Two of The Beatles’ Hamburg recordings were released as a single on 29 May 1964 in the UK.
The a-side was ‘Ain’t She Sweet’, with ‘If You Love Me, Baby’ – a mistitled version of ‘Take Out Some Insurance On Me, Baby’ – on the flipside. The single was released on the Polydor label as NH 52317.
The songs are believed to have been recorded on 24 June 1961 at Studio Rahlstedt, situated at Gebäude M1, Rahlau 128, Hamburg-Tonndorf. ‘Ain’t She Sweet’ featured just The Beatles, while the b-side had Tony Sheridan on vocals.
