Introducing... The Beatles is the first Beatles album released in the United States. Originally scheduled for a July 1963 release, the LP came out on January 10, 1964, on Vee-Jay Records, ten days before Capitol Records released, Meet The Beatles.
The latter album, entered the U.S. album chart one week before the former. Consequently, when Meet The Beatles peaked at No. 1 for eleven consecutive weeks, Introducing...The Beatles stalled at No. 2 where it remained nine consecutive weeks. The controversy ensued and through a lot of legal negotiations Vee-Jay was permitted to sell their album until late 1964, by which time it had sold more than 1.3 million copies. On 24 July 2014 the album was certified gold and platinum by the RIAA.
This is a great album, one that had its legal problems back in the day but a great album, a part of music and recording history. On this album are the following songs: I Saw Her Standing There, Misery, Anna, Chains, Boys, Love Me do, P.S. I Love You, Baby It's You, Do You Want To Know A Secret?, A Taste Of Honey, here's a Place and Twist And Shout.
This album is in excellent condition. Very Good +. Even the cover is in good condition.
