The Beatles released their second album, “With The Beatles”, in the UK. The collection featured “All My Loving”, “Please Mr. Postman” and “Roll Over Beethoven” and would succeed their first L.P. in the #1 spot, giving the Fab Four a string of 51 consecutive weeks at the top of the UK album chart. The LP had advance orders of a half million and sold another half million by September 1965, making it the second album to sell a million copies in the UK, (after the soundtrack to the 1958 film South Pacific).  Capitol Records in Canada issued the album as “Beatlemania! With the Beatles,” which has the distinction of being the first Beatles album ever released in North America. Most of the songs from the album were not released in the U.S. until January 1964 when Capitol issued “Meet the Beatles!”

Paul McCartney publicly denied rumors that he was dead. The most recent of many “clues” of this Death Hoax was the fact that he was the only barefoot Beatle on the newly released Abbey Road LP cover.
