Of the album's fourteen songs, eight were written by Lennon–McCartney (...originally credited "McCartney–Lennon"), early evidence of what Rolling Stone later called "[their invention of] the idea of the self-contained rock band, writing their own hits and playing their own instruments".
The American version of the LP went under the title of Introducing the Beatles, and was released by a Chicago-based R&B and Gospel label, VeeJay Records. The American version left off PS I love You and Love Me Do, but some editions of the LP Left off Please Please Me and Ask Me Why instead. That album had a brisk-selling counterfeit in the 1970's that has value for collectors in its own right.
