The Beatles are at long last getting the treatment they’ve always deserved on vinyl. The most anticipated catalog reissues in music history have arrived and feature the pristine remastering that fans have craved for decades. Your wishes have come true: Every Beatles album and every Beatles song in faithfully reproduced album jackets.
Beatles For Sale was released on 4th December, 1964 just 21 weeks after A Hard Day’s Night. It was their fourth album release in less than two years.
Beatles For Sale had been recorded on seven days scattered between August and October when their schedule was crammed with stage performances in the UK, Canada and the US and well as radio and television work. Given the lack of time it was not surprising that the group reverted to the 1963 formula of eight original songs and six covers.
The album hit the UK number one spot and retained that position for eleven of the 46 weeks that it spent in the Top Twenty.
