Love Me Do was the band’s first chart success, peaking at #17 in its initial release. The song would spark the band’s drive to succeed further. In the USA, it reached #1 when released again in. Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube. “Love Me Do” is an early exception to this unwritten rule. Both versions of the song are identical in structure and performance, the only difference being the appearance of a tambourine, played by Ringo. This is the easiest was to determine which version you are listening to.
Just a little oddity I found interesting…. I would just like to know, with everybody so busy, WHO is doing the hand clapping no double tracking? So simple…. It re-opened my eyes in the simplest purest way. John is the star of this song with his lead vocals throughout the verses and instantly recognizable harmonica riff.
This is the trend now…. Tiresome and cliched, Love Me Do. I loved records, 8-tracks, cassettes and then CDs. But I will never be foolish enough to say 8-tracks were better than CDs. Besides, they are all just blank canvases, and only as good as the material put on them. But as technology improves, so does the potential for cleaner, more pristine sound reproduction. To say otherwise is to be a slave to the current fad of denouncing everything new and glorying everything old. I think you should credit handclaps to the song, as they are clearly heard on 4 September version in the harmonica solo.
Had a good laugh playing the Pete Best version from Anthology 1 tonight. You could understand why the boys wanted Ringo in the band! Basically a Paul song. On the word DO, Paul slightly over pitches the intended G note. It may have been beacuse of the first experience adjusting to singing on pitch while listeneing to yourself on headphones and a combination of coming back in after a break in singing while John blew his solo.
Just to complicate matters — the Andy White version appeared on pressings of the Love Me Do 45 from late on !!!!! Looks like two of the former colonies knew something great before mother England. Oh yes right. You discovered Please Please Me even before that. Well, I wish we were as smart in November, as we were in !!
So, there are three different recordings released of Love Me Do. All are in mono. It seems unlikely that John would have sung the line if it was all Paul, as John essentially stated, first in and again in Capitol Records in Canada also used the Ringo version on their single release. The most common version released worldwide. Does this only apply to pressing from Autumn with red label? Anybody knows when it was the second pressing of the single with black label and silver text and whether it was already the version with Andy White?
But it is still unclear why, despite all the confusion with the drummer, the version with Ringo on drums was selected for the first single.

I think I had something to do with the middle. Let me think. I do know he had the song around, in Hamburg, even, way, way before we were songwriters. It might have been my original idea but some of them really were s, and I think that one was.
It was just Lennon and McCartney sitting down without either of us having a particularly original idea. Introducing our own numbers started round Liverpool and Hamburg. It was the first one we dared to do of our own. For me that was more important than anything else. That first piece of plastic. It was so wonderful. We were on a record! In Hamburg we clicked. At the Cavern we clicked. That was the one. It gave us somewhere to go. Latest Comments.

The first detail is that the second version of the song the one most are familiar with was recorded completely live, vocals and all. It can be argued that he could have played his Gibson JE guitar while having a harmonica brace around his neck, allowing both to be played throughout the song.
But the question was: 'Did he wear a harmonica brace on the days the song was recorded? It is improbable that he would have kept putting down his harmonica and picking up a guitar pick and Love Me Do kept doing this repeatedly throughout the song. To help settle this issue, we can observe actual photographs taken during the first session of this song.
Lennon can clearly be seen with his acoustic guitar strapped on but holding his harmonica with both hands. He does not have a harmonica brace in the pictures. Although the vocals were overdubbed after the basic tracks were recorded for this version, there is no evidence to suggest that the harmonica was recorded simultaneously with the vocal overdubs.
As for the second version with Andy White on drums, it appears highly unlikely that John performed both guitar and harmonica simultaneously since this version was recorded completely live. Although pictures are not available of this second session, there is no evidence of Lennon even possessing a harmonica brace until much later. And, of course, there is not a harmonica brace in sight. American Releases. I nixed the record instantly. This single went to Love Me Do one on the Billboard pop charts, which was a much higher position than in their home country, where it only peaked at number The song's peak on the British charts was possibly due to Brian Epstein personally buying reportedly 10, copies of the record for his record shop, which he had been told was the amount needed to achieve a top 20 hit.
Sometime inCapitol released Beatles music on a brand new but short-lived format called "Playtapes. These "Playtapes" are highly collectable today. In the golden age of compact discs, the US market has easy access to both versions of the song.
Both volumes of "Past Masters" were then combined on September 9th, into one volume simply entitled "Past Masters. I Love You " single as a Cema Series single for jukeboxes only. This 45, most copies of which were on red vinylis becoming quite the collectors' item today. The album peaked at number three on the US Billboard chart. On November 11th,this album was remastered, re-packaged and re-released.
This compilation album was highly anticipated, corresponding with their ABC television specials, and peaked at number one on the US Billboard chart. Released on November 13th,this is the biggest selling album of the decade as well as the fastest selling album of all time. This album features the Andy White version of the song, since it is universally considered the most known version.
A remastered editione of this album was released in On November 9th,the Super Deluxe 50th Anniversary edition of the " White Album " was released, which includes 'take 18' of " Revolution 1 " as recorded on May 30th, This 'take' includes Paul singing an ad lib version of "Love Me Do," as described above. Live Performances. Great effort was made by all involved to get The Beatles some exposure for their first released single "Love Me Do.
Their five minute spot included the group performing their stage favorite "Some Other Guy" and then "Love Me Do," with brief banter with host Gay Byrne. Since this was a live broadcast, it wasn't filmed or videotaped by the studio, the only evidence of its existence are people's memories and an audio reel-to-reel tape made on the day of broadcast by year-old fan Adrian Killen the tape currently owned by Apple.
Mark Lewisohn's book "Tune In" describes the perfromance as "confident and good and included a boisterous bridge where Ringo kept the guitars strongly on the beat and brought them back into the next verse. Another appearance on "People And Places" was taped on October 29th and broadcast on November 2nd, this time featuring John Lennon sitting without an instrument as a lead singer would do while the other Beatles stood Ringo included.
Then on December 3rd, they mimed the song on the live program "Discs A Gogo," as well as another mimed live performance the following day, December 4th, on the London-area children's show " Tuesday Rendevzous. Since the song was their first national British hit, it became part of their permanent set list throughout the rest ofboth in their home performances and during their Hamburg visits at the end of the year.
Their BBC radio performances of the song began on October 25th,only three weeks after the record was released in Britain. Ringo, after being thoroughly disillusioned by the record industry, felt vindicated when the initial pressing of the record in Britain contained the version with him on the drums.
For the song's composers, it had an even greater impact. The excitement of having a popular national hit song was a dream come true for the band. To be counted among their musical heroes currently on the radio waves, such as The Everly BrothersSmokey Robinson, and The Shirelles, was an indescribable experience for them. Brain Epstein would call them with the precise times that the song would be played on the radio so they could stop what they were doing and listen.
They would even celebrate every time the song moved up on the British charts. It's impact in America was immediate, even without any promotion behind it. The Beatles never performed the song in any American concert or television appearances. They didn't need to. T he irresistible harmonica hook, the all-too-familiar harmonies, and Love Me Do captivating melody line were enough to stick in the minds of American youth and skyrocket the song to the top of the US charts.
