The Beatles Alpha Listing 
Complete title listing for UK/US 45s/EPs/LPs.
Mono/Stereo/Alternates

As most of you know, there were myriad differences betwixt mono and stereo releases, and the occasional "alternate take" issue of standard releases.

This website is not going into that level of detail. However, this Usenet text file (altho a little dated) gives a comprehensive listing that will sate your curiosity.

My Bonnie / The Saints (When The Saints Go Marching In)

Decca 31382, 4/62 BB

as by Tony Sheridan And The Beat Brothers, first appearance of The Beatles on record; 1964 reisssue sleeve
Start of Beatlemania
The story of ineptitude and short-sightedness at both Capitol and Vee Jay makes for a very interesting story, especially as told by Little Steven in his Underground Garage "radio" show (Show 775 - The Big Bang), a show that originally dates to the early 00s.

The story of I Want To Hold Your Hand being played on WWDC-AM and why it was released the day after Christmas, 1963 is hysterical (segment 5)! Check it out and then bookmark his website and go back often.

Sanity returns to the record changers.
Starting with Sgt Peppers here and Satanic Majesties there, the track lineups on both American and British albums are the same. Only 4 years! It would take the Kinks until 1969.

Now release dates—fuhgeddaboudit! Closer—sometimes.

Poor Peter Tork—his banjo playing went uncredited. The corrected musicians participating on each track are in the 2014 reissue, in case you wanted to know.

End of Beatlemania
Abbey Road was the last record The Beatles made. Let It Be was actually left over bits from the movie project. After that horror show, they decided to be a group again for one final blast. Thanks, boys!

They inspired us and guided us and helped change the world.

Think I'm being too harsh on Capitol?
Here's John from an interview: "And we tried to put it out on Capitol, and Capitol didn't want to put it out. They said, 'This is garbage; we're not going to put it out with her screaming on one side and you doing this sort of live stuff. And they just refused to put it out. But we finally persuaded them that, you know, people might buy this. Of course it went gold the next day." (source)

Beatlemania In Full Song

I know that this is way past Post 71, but it's never been reissued on CD. So you'll have to track down a real vinyl version (or one of those, ahem, things that has both concerts—complete and with KRLA DJ intros!) You could also check The Beatles At Shea Stadium over in the TV section.

What we're talking about is a great example of The Beatles at their raw concert power—trying their best to drown out thousands of screaming teeny-boppers. Culled from two events a year apart, they were specifically recorded by Capitol for an album. But because of the crowd noise, the tapes sat on the shelf for over a dozen years until George Martin was able to take advantage of modern technology and "compose" the resulting live album. Another track, Baby's In Black, surfaced on one of the Anthology CD singles in 1995.
