Nearly 57 YEARS AGO on October 5th 1962 "The Beatles" recorded their debut single 'Love Me Do' at EMI Studios, London.
John Lennon - vocals/rhythm guitar
Paul McCartney - vocals/bass guitar
George Harrison - lead guitar
Ringo Starr - drums
When the single was originally released in the United Kingdom on 5 October 1962, it peaked at number 17. In 1982 it was re-promoted (not re-issued, retaining the same catalogue number) and reached number four. It was released in the United States in 1964, where it became a number one hit.
The song was written several years before it was recorded, and prior to the existence of the Beatles. The single features John Lennon's prominent harmonica playing and duet vocals by him and Paul McCartney. Three different recorded versions of the song by the Beatles have been released, each with a different drummer.
Subtitles/lyrics have been added for the deaf and hard of hearing... plus we have cleaned up the video to make it look sharper than the original version.
