Note:
Please note this master is to be used for the version of the song which was recorded on Tuesday 4th September 1962 at Abbey Road Studios for their first single on Parlophone. This version features Ringo Starr on drums and does not contain any tambourine playing. It can also be identified by the presence of the matrix number 7XCE 17144-1N in the runout. In recent years there have been some reissues that have also included this version.

Another master exists which is to be used for the version of the song recorded on Tuesday 11th September 1962 at Abbey Road Studios. That version features an uncredited Andy White on drums with Ringo Starr playing tambourine. A link for that master can be found here.

This nigerian release of "Love Me Do" has the version with Ringo Starr on drums. In fact, the mispelled credit Lennon-McArtney comes from the UK demo disc of the first version of the song, imported to Nigeria to made posible the manufacturing of a local single of "Love Me Do".

Also, the mispelled credit appeared on the "Love Me Do" single in Pakistan and Norway, too.

Note EMI in a cash in attempt had 45-R 4714 re-releaased also by Optimal Germany, also sold centre small hole (Optimal did not have a 4-pin OC Dinker at the time>>>>>they do now!) also a tight low volume groove BUT daa daah!
Its Stereophonic!!! Yes a Stereo Silver on Red EMI Parlophone! Note the sleeve with the Matt Monro release should be the earlier Red Green Yellow and Blue Triangles die-cur sleeve, not the later Beach Towel stripes die-cut sleeve that LMD originally came in!

I would like a copy of this red record but they only issued 1500 so I expect it to be expensive

"Love Me Do" will always bring back fond memories to most Beatles' fans, but the music is uninteresting. In retrospect, it's amazing how weak 'Introducing the Beatles' (UK's 'Please Please Me') is as the first Beatles' album. Especially considering how powerful their 'Meet the Beatles' is. The Beatles were great from the get-go with 'I Saw Her Standing There', 'Please Please Me', 'Ask Me Why', 'There's a Place'. This single is backed by 'P.S. I Love You', which stands up well as a pretty, early Lennon-McCartney song.

Their reliance on covers for their first album is not surprising for a group's first album, but I find practically all of the covers on this first Beatles' album weak and dated. Not nearly as fun as the covers the Rolling Stones pull off on their first album release. The contrast of the Beatles' look on 'Introducing the Beatles' and the famous 'Meet the Beatles' shadow photograph is amazing. The Vee-Jay cover shows a very young and almost goofy looking Beatles. The Capitol cover is as artistic as the Beatles' music would become. And the music inside of 'Meet the Beatles', with the exception of Meredith Willson's 'Til There Was You', were all Lennon-McCartney originals.

I am certainly aware of the historical significance of 'Love Me Do'. I just don't play it anymore.

Technically, this is the second pressing. The second pressing, R 4949, autumn 1963. Standard procedure at Abbey Road Studios at the time was to erase the original two-track session tape for singles once they had been “mixed down” to the (usually monaural) master tape used to press records. This was the fate of two Beatles singles (four songs): “Love Me Do”, “P.S. I Love You”, “She Loves You”, and “I’ll Get You”. However, at some point the mixdown master tape for this song was also lost, and apparently no backup copies had been made. Thus, for many years the only extant recorded copies were the red label Parlophone 45 rpm vinyl records pressed in 1962. By the time the tapes had disappeared, the song’s 11 September 1962 remake featuring Andy White had been released. EMI would not have been too concerned about the loss of the 4 September take, therefore, as it was now considered obsolete, and they may not have anticipated ever having any use for it again anyway.

The original tape of ‘Love Me Do.’ It was removed at the time the Beatles’ Hits EP came out (August-September 1963). Therefore, for the second press “Love Me Do” was used Andy White version. In 1967, when Ringo’s version was discontinued from the EMI catalog, the lacquer, mother, and all stampers for the UK 45 were destroyed, thus making it impossible to press any further first-generation releases.

Black label with silver print. The publishing year was printed on the label, as “RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1962″. “Parlophone Co. Ltd.” printed at the start perimeter print. Can be found with PT, MT, MPT or KT tax code. Push-out center. Matrix numbers: Side A: 7XCE 17144-1N, Side B: 7XCE 17145-1N.
The difference between the 2nd pressing and 3rd pressing is the Tax Code 3rd pressing is KT only, there you have it!

None of the USA or Canadian 1982 + retro releases are Stereo (LMD was never mixed to stereo the stage tapes were foolishly wiped for re-use once the mono mixes were done BOTH of the Original Ringo verison and the substituted 1963 released album tie-in Andy White version).

They are all a vile David Dexter "Duophonic" re-creation of the Andy White version and are pointless and worthless.
Only the Capitol-CEMA Juke Box (red vinyl pressed in error) copies contain the original and MONO Ringo Version of LMD.
