Love Me Do Anniversary single
Thirsting for some fresh Beatles vinyl? Take a look at this one, then:
The Beatles Love Me Do Limited Edition 50th Anniversary 7 Inch
October 4th 1962 saw a review in trade magazine Record Retailer of a debut single from a new band that was coming out the next day. It read: "A new group from the Liverpool area. Their first record but they already have a strong following and this seems to be the strongest outsider of the week." Love Me Do by The Beatles was released on 5th October 1962 and that band of outsiders were off on their journey that would eventually lead them to conquer the world. Within a week the single entered the UK chart at 49 and it was eventually to go as high as 17 while spending 18 weeks on the chart.
To celebrate this important date in the history of British rock, it looks like we're in for a re-release "replica" of the original single in the original colourful house Parlophone sleeve. The audio is taken from the mono remaster of 2009, and it's a limited edition which will not be re-manufactured.
- Side 1 Love Me Do (Original Single Version) (2009 - Remaster)
- Side 2 P.S. I Love You (2009 - Remaster)
Release date will of course be October 5th, 2012.
Found over at What Records and elsewhere.
