    Beatles First Two Capitol Singles "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "Can't Buy Be Love" (1964). "I Want To Hold Your Hand" was released on Feb. 9th and went right to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Then, less than eight weeks later the release of the second Capitol single "Can't Buy Me Love" shot to the #1 position, giving the group the top five spots on the charts, a feat not equaled before or since. The # 2 spot was "Twist and Shout", #3 was "She Loves You", #4 "I Want To Hold Your Hand", and at #5 "Please, Please Me". This is the rarer East Coast pressing of "I Want To Hold Your Hand" - condition: EX 7 / NM 8. This copy of "Can't Buy Me Love" with picture sleeve is the rarest of all the Beatle Capitol picture sleeves and very hard to find in this shape. Condition: EX 7 / NM 8.
