Love Me Do/P.S. I Love You - released in Canada

On February 4, 1963, Capitol of Canada released the first every Beatles single in North America.

Paul White who was a Capitol Canada record executive, decided that The Beatles sounded quite different, and so he had them released on a single in Canada. The single didn't enter the charts (or even failed to generate an interest), but at least it was a start.

Three weeks later the first "American" single was released: Please Please Me / Ask me Why, this time on the Vee-Jay Records label.
