Capitol Records released the LP “Beatles ’65” on Dec. 15, 1964. It was the Beatles’ fifth album issued by Capitol Records, but their seventh American album. The LP was also issued in Germany on the Odeon label.

Beatles ’65 includes eight of the fourteen songs from Beatles for Sale (omitting “Eight Days a Week”, “Words of Love”, “Every Little Thing”, “I Don’t Want to Spoil the Party”, “What You’re Doing”, and the “Kansas City/Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey” medley, all of which were issued later on Beatles VI). It also includes “I’ll Be Back” from the UK A Hard Day’s Night album and the single “I Feel Fine”/”She’s a Woman”.

In the US the album was a blockbuster hit, and jumped from No. 98 straight to No. 1, making the biggest jump to the top position in the history of the Billboard Album Charts up to that time. It remained at number one for nine straight weeks starting on Jan. 9 1965.

Beatles ’65 was the top selling non-soundtrack album based on Billboard’s year end chart for 1965.
