AllMusic Review by

The tremendous success of the Beatles in 1964 led to numerous repackagings of their material by the independent labels that had taken a chance on them early on when their nominal American label passed on its option in 1963. While it still controlled American rights to the Beatles' first album, Please Please Me, which it had issued in abridged form as Introducing The Beatles in 1963, Vee Jay hit upon another way of selling the same material. Here, they released a two-LP set--the first LP is a slightly different abridgement of the Please Please Me album ("Ask Me Why" and "Please Please Me" have been restored, and "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You" deleted), and the second LP consists of early material by the Four Seasons, also now scoring hits on another label.
