Yet another attempt by Vee-Jay to cash-in on their back catalogue. This was just a repackaged version of ‘Introducing The Beatles’ with a fold-out cover, photos and biographies. It caused them considerable problems in court (again) because as soon as Capitol caught wind of their new release, they sued them. The settlement reached in January ’64 expressly forbade them from releasing a new set of songs. But Vee-Jay got around the ban by releasing the same set of songs in a brand new cover. Sneaky!
