This album is Capitol Records' attempt to clean up the Beatles catalog, culling tracks from the Beatles first three U.K. releases, and mixing in the single, "She Loves You" once they obtained their licensing from Swan Records - who owned the license beforehand.

The track listing is so scattered you really could just call Second Album  a compilation album. But Capitol needed to catch up to the British market as A Hard Day's Night  was about to get it's official release in June. Capitol shot this out before A Hard Day's Night soundtrack and then Something New  to finish cleaning up the years 1963 to 1965. The leftover songs from Meet The Beatles: "Roll Over Beethoven", "You Really Got A Hold On Me", "Devil In Her Heart", "Money (That's What I Want)" and "Please Mr. Postman".

 

The songs on Second Album come from:

 

"Thank You Girl" - B-Side to "From Me To You"

"She Loves You" - Single Release

"I'll Get You" - B-Side to "She Loves You"

"You Can't Do That" - B-Side to "Can't Buy Me Love"

"Long Tall Sally" & "I Call Your Name" - New Recordings

 

This is the last album to play catch-up with older recordings in the U.S. From here until Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Capitol will begin combining album tracks into U.S. exclusive markets.
