On 22 March 1963, the first Beatles album was released in the UK – Please Please Me. Had you been down to the High Street and bought your copy that day, taken it home and played it, the very first song you would have heard was I Saw Her Standing There. On the basis of “first impressions count”, what a great introduction to the band that were going change the entire music scene during the next seven and three quarter years.

In the US, I Saw Her Standing There was the B-side to I Want To Hold Your Hand. Here in Australia, it’s single release was as part of a double A-side recording with Love Me Do, a month after I Want To Hold You Hand hit our charts.
