The Beatles The U.S. Albums

This month Americans have taken a lot of time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ arrival in the US and their debut appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. During the initial years, as many know, the band released U.S. versions of its albums that differed from the UK releases in title, track listing, and production (this changed once Sgt. Pepper came out). Capitol has remastered and packaged all of these albums in a new CD box set. It runs around $173 on Amazon, and we have a copy to give one of you in our latest sweepstakes.

In addition to a 65-page booklet the 13-disc collection includes the following albums:

  • Meet The Beatles!
  • The Beatles’ Second Album
  • A Hard Day’s Night (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
  • Something New
  • The Beatles’ Story
  • Beatles ’65
  • The Early Beatles
  • Beatles VI
  • Help! (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
  • Rubber Soul
  • Yesterday And Today
  • Revolver
  • Hey Jude
