“A Hard Day’s Night composed of all Lennon and McCartney originals, had been out for only 2 months when the Beatles began recording this album. Although some of its songs were more sophisticated-- “ I’m a Loser”, ”No Reply” -- Lennon and McCartney were just not ablle to write a whole album’s worth. They did come up with 8 originals, however, and padded out the album with 6 versions of Beatle cover songs that were stage favorites.
Released December 4,1964, and 5 days later it was No. 1, replacing “A Hard Day’s Night” It was No. 1 for 9 weeks.
The first US equivalent, “Beatles 65”, was released December 15, 1964. It contained 8 songs from the UK album, one from “A Hard Day’s Night” and both sides of a single. It sold more than a million copies in its first week of release.
August 11- October 26, 1964, at Abbey Road
