RM Take 9 & 12
11 Feb 1963
SS.PPM.01.09/12.RM
Used for mono LP & CD "Please Please Me".
Also found on mono US "Introducing The Beatles" (Brennan) but missing the count-in (only the "4" remains). It is not sure if the version found on "Introducing .." is the UK mono mix or the UK stereo mix reduced to mono. According to Brennan (again), if it was a reduction from the stereo mix we would hear the volume dropout on verse 3 that is typical on the UK stereo mix.

RM Take 16

SS.PPM.02.16.RM
The Beatles
Available on "Please Please Me" mono LP/CD.
On 20 Feb 1963, George Martin overdubbed 5 piano takes onto take 11. The last and best being take 16.

Released on:
UK: Parlophone PMC 1202 Please Please Me 1963.
CD: EMI CDP 7 46435 2 Please Please Me 1987.

According to Brennan:
Whether Vee Jay uses [this UK mono mix] or is just a mono reduction of [UK stereo mix] seems impossible to determine by listening, since an unedited mono mix would sound the same. It's been suggested that the entire Vee Jay LP is a mono reduction of the stereo mixes (except that the real mono "Please please me" was used for the reissue version of the LP), and it is hard to rule this out, although it's also hard to say why Vee Jay would not have been sent both mono and stereo masters.

Tilleul: for now, and until I have further proofs, we'll consider this version to appear on Vee Jay.

Review by: derha-dunOn 28 Apr 2004 at 07:02 CEST
Excellent monophonic sound. I perfer this to the official release. Artwork is far better and replicates the original album artwork verses the hack job done by Apple. The Doctor has updated the artwork to his production since this was posted.

Great transfer, but not the best sounding version out there. The title song (PPM) sounds a but muffled. I still prefer stereo anyway. Get the Blue Box or Die Beatles!
