The Beatles on the U.S. Charts 1965

The onslaught on Beatle releases settled down considerably from 1964 going into 1965 – due much in part to Capitol Records reigning in the release rights to Beatle recordings within the U.S.A.

Capitol Records released the Starline series to debut singles which had previously been released on the Vee Jay or Tollie Labels.  “Roll Over Beethoven” had been previously released in 1964 on the Capitol Canada label – which charted in the U.S. with the absence of the single on any U.S. label.
