Additional information


This was an essential import purchase in 1964 as the American version of the album contained the Beatle songs from the film (no extra's !) ... and four orchestral pieces from the film by The George Martin Orchestra.
This release was on the United Artists label (catno. UAS 6366) as they had the rights to the film soundtrack (they were the film distributors).

In the U.S. "A Hard Day's Night" had advance orders of over 1 million before it's release date of 26th June 1964, and had sold 2 million just three months later, making it one of the fastest selling albums ever.
It was number one in the U.S. for 14 weeks.
