  • Please Please Me is the debut album by the English rock band the Beatles. Produced by George Martin, it was released on EMI's Parlophone label on 22 March 1963 in the United Kingdom, following the success of the band's singles "Please Please Me" and "Love Me Do", which reached number 1 on the NME and Melody Maker charts and number 17 on the UK Singles Chart, respectively. The album topped Record Retailer's LP chart for 30 weeks, an unprecedented achievement for a pop album at that time.

    Besides their already released singles, the Beatles recorded the majority of Please Please Me in one long recording session at EMI Studios on 11 February 1963; overdubs were later added by Martin to "Misery" and "Baby It's You" on 20 February. Of the album's 14 songs, eight were written by Lennon–McCartney (originally credited "McCartney–Lennon"). Rolling Stone magazine later cited these original compositions as early evidence of the Beatles' "[invention of] the idea of the self-contained rock band, writing their own hits and playing their own instruments".[6] In 2012, Please Please Me was voted 39th on Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". It was voted number 622 in the third edition of Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000).
