The Beatles' The U.S. Albums 13 CD Box Set!

Commemorating the Fab Four's U.S. arrival on the event's 50th anniversary

Stateside albums feature distinct track lists, song mixes, album titles and artwork

13 CD collection spans 1964's Meet The Beatles! to 1970's Hey Jude: Every album (save two) presented in mono and stereo!

Includes infamous "Butcher" cover for Yesterday and Today, faithfully replicated original LP art and 64-page booklet

Ladies and gentlemen, the Beatles! Celebrating and commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' early February arrival at New York's JFK Airport and subsequent American television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show." The U.S. Albums box set presents the band's records as they were released stateside and originally experienced by millions of American listeners. The American versions of the group's groundbreaking albums feature different track lists, song mixes, album titles and artwork than the U.K. releases.

All of the albums are presented in mono and stereo, with the exception of The Beatles' Story and Hey Jude, which are in stereo only. Collected in a box set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums' inner sleeves, the 13 CDs are accompanied by a 64-page booktlet with Beatles photos and promotional art from the time, as well as a new essay by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan. Spanning Meet the Beatles to Hey Jude, this incredible collection also includes a replication of the highly controversial cover and banned "Butcher" cover for Yesterday and Today.

By the end of 1963, before The Beatles' American arrival, "Beatlemania" had already sprung forth across the Atlantic to take root in the U.S. Radio stations in the U.S. began playing The Beatles' latest U.K. single, ""I Want To Hold Your Hand," in heavy rotation, trying to meet an insatiable listener demand. Capitol Records rushed out the American single for "I Want To Hold Your Hand" (with B-side "I Saw Her Standing There") on December 26, three weeks ahead of schedule and one month after the single's U.K. release. More than one million copies of the U.S. single were sold within 10 days.

In early January 1964, Vee-Jay reissued "Please Please Me" (with B-side "From Me To You"), and Swan reissued "She Loves You." The Beatles' first Capitol album, Meet The Beatles!, followed on January 20. After achieving the No. 1 chart position for five consecutive weeks in the U.K., "I Want To Hold Your Hand" reached the top of the U.S. singles chart on February 1, holding the No. 1 position for seven consecutive weeks, and within two months, more than 3.5 million copies of Meet The Beatles! were sold in the U.S.

The Beatles were now firmly in place as the world's favorite and most famous band. Their third "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance, a three-song performance taped prior to the band's live debut on the program, was broadcast on February 23. Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart for April 5, 1964 was graced by 12 Beatles songs, including the chart's top five positions, a sweep of the chart's summit that has not been achieved by any other artist since. The band's meteoric rise to unparalleled fame continued as "Beatlemania" swept the globe, a singular and boundless cultural marvel.
