The Beatles’ 10th Parlophone EP contained four of their biggest hits to date.
Just two weeks after the EP was released, We Can Work It Out/Day Tripper became their sixth million-seller in the UK.
The Beatles’ Million Sellers was issued as Parlophone GEP 8946, and was available in mono only. It was housed in a picture sleeve featuring a photograph by Robert Whitaker.
