Format: Audio CD
Love Me Do was the first single by the Beatles, released in Britain on 5 October 1962 on the Parlophone label. It was also included on the Beatles' debut album, Please Please Me (and the truncated American versions on Vee-Jay and later on Capitol) along with its B-side, PS I Love You. The album is stuffed full of vintage and classic early Beatles and represents better value for money than this single. For new listeners looking to start a Beatle collection, the Please Please Me LP is the place to start. Nevertheless, this obviously of interest as an artifact as it represents their first proper single (some material recorded in Germany when they acted as a backing group for Tony Sheridan had been released), and includes both versions of Love Me Do released at the time.
The song is one of the Beatles' earliest compositions, having been written in 1958 by Paul in Liverpool, with a few minor suggestions from John. A million miles from later complex pieces like A Day In The Life, it was nevertheless a fresh and uncompromising sounding debut that stood out against the bland fare on offer on British radio at the time. Distinguished by a harmonica solo from John Lennon (at the suggestion of George Martin, and influenced by Bruce Channel's recent hit Hey Baby), the single received one of its earliest plays on the BBC Light Entertainment's forces radio request show Two-Way Family Favourites, introduced by Jean Metcalfe. The harmonies sounded distinctive and the sound jumped out of the vibrating radio loudspeaker, and made a big impact on young listeners such as myself.
It was unusual then on a pop single to hear the bass guitar so prominently as it punctuated the drums and percussion.
