The Beatles’ label in the States, Vee-Jay, started having money troubles in the summer and failed to pay their royalties on time. So Transglobal (who licensed The Beatles’ product in the States) pulled the plug and ordered them to “cease manufacture and distribution of any and all records containing performances by The Beatles”. That left Brian in a bit of a bind, because EMI’s sister company Capitol still weren’t interested in The Beatles’ music. So he ordered Transglobal to find a replacement. And that label was Swan.
