Sample text

The mix was carried out on November 30 without the participation of the Beatles, but in those days that was typical. Technical Details During the June 6 and November 26 recording sessions, “Please Please Me” and “Ask Me Why” were simultaneously recorded in mono and stereo by means of a system called Delta-Mono. This technique was soon dropped and replaced by solely mono recording with Twin Track tape recorders. FOR BEATLES FANATICS “Ask Me Why,” along with “Please Please Me,” was one of only two Beatles songs published by Dick James Music, their new publisher, before John, Paul, Brian Epstein, Dick James, and his partner, Charles Silver, founded the Northern Songs company.

Lincoln, Geoff Emerick Genesis On January 26, as they were giving a concert at King’s Hall in Stroke-on-Trent, John and Paul found themselves backstage, where they wrote a song for Helen Shapiro, who was the star of the national tour in which they participated for the first time. Barely sixteen years old, she already had two number 1 hits on the charts in Great Britain (“You Don’t Know” and “Walkin’ Back to Happiness”). Therefore, having her perform this song would have been a coup for Lennon and McCartney.

But the adaptation of the Fab Four bests Alexander’s version, thanks to John’s voice, which is poignant and dynamic, and the background harmonies of Paul and George. ” It seems then that the Beatles’ performance was deemed likely to appeal to the black audience. Therefore, a very limited series of test records was pressed for disc jockeys. But ultimately the idea was dropped. Today, it is believed that there are only four copies left in the world. One of them was sold in July 2012 for $35,000. This was the highest bid for a single ever made by a Beatles collector.
