Here's a list of the tracks on the American albums (and which CD's
they appear on in that incarnation). This list doesn't include
interview albums, or the Vee Jay albums, just the Capitol LP's of
music. Nor are compilation albums such as "Rock and Roll Music" or
"Love Songs" included. Note also that on "Abbey Road" and maybe a
couple other albums, the order of songs is different on the cassette
issue of the album. The order listed here is for the LP incarnation.

1. MEET THE BEATLES

3. A HARD DAY'S NIGHT

the instrumentals by George Martin's orchestra have never been
releases in the UK. Of course all the Beatles songs are on the UK's
A Hard Day's Night album. I believe the reason this album was issued in the
format it was, was because United Artists in the US insisted on
having the rights to release the soundtrack, but could only get the
rights to the 7 songs that were in the film.)

b. Tell Me Why
