Capitol Records were still keen to wring as much money as possible out of Beatles fans in America, leading to the release of The Early Beatles in March 1965.
The catalogue number was Capitol T-2309, and the tracklisting was as follows: Love Me Do, Twist And Shout, Anna (Go To Him), Chains, Boys, Ask Me Why, Please Please Me, PS I Love You, Baby It’s You, A Taste Of Honey and Do You Want To Know A Secret
