Print Friendly

The Beatles first ever record. Love me do original uk parlophone DEMO 45 single. Easily the most important piece of Beatles vinyl in the world today….If this single hadn’t been successful they wouldn’t have gone on to record any more material with parlophone… they might have gone into total obscurity and we might have never heard from the Beatles ever again.

Even though it only reached no 17 in the charts, the record company deemed it a success and they went onto record please please me and the album of the same name…. and the rest as they say is history.

Coming up for it’s 50th anniversary next year. Only 250 copies were pressed up to promote the Beatles debut single in October 1962.

It was issued to DJ’s, music journalists and friends one ha to wonder how many have survived the past 49 years.
