Notes

Blue label Rockaway variation of the single with white labels and blue print than includes
the production credit. Although this is a 1964 pressing, the blue print single is much sought
after due to its scarcity and novel appearance. This 1964 Rockaway single has the Reco-Art
machine stamping in the trail off area of the A side and "Virtue Studio" hand etched on B side.
Matrix numbers: S-4152-S-1A C2 (stamped) / S-4152-I-1B A5 (hand etched).
For the 1964 reissue of the single, SWAN prepared an attractive picture sleeve. The sleeve features
the same Dezo Hoffmann photo of the group used on the back cover to "Meet The Beatles".

Why does this version get listed as a repress, but the black/silver don't? My understanding is that this was released in 1964 along with the common black/silver labels. With that being the case, all 1964 versions should be considered represses. Only the white/red 1963 versions would be actual first pressings.

One of the earliest examples of what created "Beatlemania". I have entertained the thought that "She Loves You" is not so much music as it is a sheer explosion of joy. The thunder of Ringo's drums and the lovely ringing of the guitars. This record has lost none of its original charm. You need to have the 45 of this, which is a 'loud cut'. The song is quite different on the album releases.
The b-side is no slouch, either. "I'll Get You" has been undermined as a 'minor song', but the melody is so much wiser than so many pop releases of the time. Lennon had the knack from the beginning ('There's A Place', 'Ask Me Why', 'Not a Second Time').
This release, both the black and white label issues, have been counterfeited. Genuine releases of the white label issue have the machine-stamped 'Reco-Art' blurb in the dead wax.
I've heard the old chestnut about the Beatles arriving on the scene just after the Kennedy assassination. That somehow the president's death was a catalyst for Beatlemania. But these songs, along with "Please Please Me" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" had us all in a spell. It had nothing to do with JFK. The Beatles were just damn good, and we'd never heard anything like it before.
