Debut album Please, Please me turns 50!! 

Please Please Me, the debut album from The Beatles, was released 50 years ago today — March 22, 1963.

From the Beatles site: “Please Please Me was done in a day – we started at 10 o’clock in the morning, finished at 11 at night, and that was the record made” recalled producer Sir George Martin.

Ten of the album’s fourteen tracks were recorded on the 11th February, 1963 – performance favorites and “Lennon-McCartney originals”. In addition to “Love Me Do”, the B-side of their debut single and both sides of their second single made up the remaining tracks.

The iconic front cover shot was taken at the then headquarters of EMI Limited at 20 Manchester Square in London’s West End in early 1963 by Angus McBean.

Please Please Me hit Number One in the chart in May…
