Side A: Ain’t She Sweet / Cry For A Shadow / Let’s Dance / My Bonnie / Take Out Some Insurance On Me, Baby / What’d I Say
Side B: Sweet Georgia Brown / The Saints / Ruby Baby / Why / Nobody’s Child / Ya-Ya

Track (1) Ager/Yellen, (2) Harrison/Lennon, (3) Sheridan/Lee, (4,8) Traditional, arranged by Sheridan, (5) Singleton/Hall, (6) Charles, (7) Bernie/Pinkard/Casey, (9) Leiber/Stoller, (10) Sheridan/Compton, (11) Coban/Foree and (12) Robinson/Dorsey/Lewis

There is much confusion about the date this came out. Some people say that Polydor released it in June ’64 but Hans Olof Gottfridsson, in his excellent book ‘The Beatles – From Cavern To Star-Club’ has found out that they pressed it up with old labels. The new date has therefore been pushed back to September ’67 to tie in with the record number on the sleeve.

The fact that the LP does not appear in any of the charts for 1964, even though Beatlemania was raging round their ears just goes to prove that the date is fishy. The 1964 copies were probably just imported over from Germany.
