This became the fastest-selling album in British history, shifting well over 1.5 million copies in its first two weeks. They also became the first band to simultaneously hold onto the top spots in both the album and the singles charts in both the UK and the States.

This album is unique in that every single song was written by Lennon/McCartney. John wrote the lion’s share with ten out of thirteen tracks. The last group to attempt a whole album of original songs was Buddy Holly and the Crickets, way back in the fifties.
