Original 1964 US rainbow rim Capitol label 11-track mono LP. By The end of 1964 The Beatles were the most popular band in the World. It is documented that Capitol Records expected Beatles ’65 to sell in excess of one million copies, T2228
Beatles ’65 was released in December 1964 and is the The Beatles fourth Capitol release, but sixth American album. Beatles ’65 includes most of the songs from Beatles for Sale, but omitting ‘Eight Days a Week’, ‘Words of Love’, ‘Every Little Thing’, ‘I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party’, ‘What You’re Doing’, and the ‘Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey’ medley, which would show up later in Beatles VI. It instead included ‘I’ll Be Back’ from A Hard Day’s Night album and includes the single ‘I Feel Fine’ / ‘She’s A Woman’. These two latter songs were remixed into ‘duophonic’ [fake] stereo and drenched in echo by Capitol Records’ executive Dave Dexter, Jr. to cover up the use of the mono mixes sent from England.
