The Beatles kicked off The British Invasion with a series of releases and TV appearances. This is the story of a whirlwind few months.
Mostly recorded in one day at Abbey Road Studios, The Beatles' debut album, 'Please Please Me' went on to top the charts, staying there for 30 weeks.
Released in January 1963, The Beatles' ‘Please Please Me,’ was a transatlantic smash hit, but not quite as successful as many people now imagine.
Shortly before 10 a.m. on Monday 11th February the Beatles arrived at Abbey Road Studios in London to begin work on their first long-playing record.
