15 Songs, 36 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

From the opening chords of "I Saw Her Standing There" to "Twist and Shout," The Beatles' debut highlights the group's live energy and songwriting strength. Recorded, edited, and mixed in just over 25 hours, the mood of the album is raw and exuberant. The explosive sound of Please Please Me, with its frequent yelps and handclaps, as well as the unusual selection of American songs they chose to cover on the album, emulates the energy of their early R&B and rock 'n' roll influences.
