    Beatles "Please Please Me" Promo 45 (Vee-Jay 581, 1963). "Please Please Me" was recorded in 1962 and originally released in the UK with "Ask Me Why" as Side 2. The next year, the US released version had "From Me To You" as the flipside. It was 1964 when the record finally took off on these shores, reaching #3 in the early days of US Beatlemania. The promo copy is 8 to 10 times more scarce than the common commercial version, and this blue and white label promo copy is nearly twice as rare as the black and white label copy. Rarer still are copies in this exceptional condition: EX 7 (sleeve)/ NM 8 (record). !
