On Friday, The Beatles will release a limited-edition 45 of their first single, ‘Love Me Do,’ on the 50th anniversary of the song’s release.

This special 45 features ‘Love Me Do’ with ‘P.S. I Love You’ as the B-side. It will be packaged in a replica of the original with a multi-colored sleeve, and a red Parlophone label in the center of the vinyl.

‘Love Me Do’ was one of three songs recorded during the Beatles’ first recording session on Sept. 4, 1962. However, producer George Martin was unhappy with the drumming of Ringo Starr, who had recently replaced Pete Best, and had the band re-cut the song a week later with session drummer Andy White and Starr on tambourine. However, the version with Ringo on drums was chosen for the single, which reached No. 17 on the British charts.”

 

You can pick this up for a smooth $12.99 on the Beatles’ website here.
