T he Swan label may have been for the birds (no less than ten variations of this single were released between 1963 and 1964), but it was Parlophone who ended up with egg on their face when they sold the US distribution rights to The Beatles’ early singles rather than release them on Capitol (their US distribution arm). When this single reached #1 on both sides of the Atlantic (the first Beatles single to do so), Parlophone clipped the wings of Swan and their ilk by keeping subsequent US releases in the family. Today, the Swan single is an interesting entry-level collectible, though some variations sell for hundreds of dollars (the version you see here is one of the most common). The B side, “I’ll Get You,” later appeared on The Beatles’ Second Album (along with the A side) and much later resurfaced (in part) on Elvis Costello’s “No Dancing.”
