In October 1965 Capitol re-released the four Vee-Jay singles on its budget label, ‘Capitol Starline’. This was the second time in under a year that the songs had been marketed this way. (The first time was on Vee-Jay’s own ‘Oldies’ label.)

The songs and their B-sides were: ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret / Thank You Girl’, ‘Please Please Me / From Me To You’, ‘Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You’ and ‘Twist And Shout / There’s A Place’.

They also took the opportunity to release a couple of best-selling Canadian imports: ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, and ‘Boys’. The only one out of the six to chart was ‘Boys’, reaching No.102 on Billboard.
