The Beatles' Second Album (United States, 1964)

The Beatles Second Album

Buy The Beatles' Second Album on CD or on iTunes

Although indeed Capitol's second Beatles release in the US, it was the third following Meet The Beatles and VeeJay's Introducing The Beatles. The Beatles' Second Album features more repackaged UK releases for the US market, as would be the norm until 1967, but is notable for being the first LP released in the world to feature I Call Your Name and Long Tall Sally. Few ballads or slower songs are included, and The Beatles' Second Album is notorious for being more "rock and roll" than other albums. The album was rereleased on CD in 2004 as part of the four disc set The Capitol Albums, Vol. 1 in both stereo and mono on one disc using the original Capitol masters, and again in 2014 in The U.S. Albums box set but featuring reworked EMI masters.
