"With The Beatles" is The Beatles' second UK album, recorded four months after the band's first album and released on 22 November, 1963.

The album features eight original compositions (including the first by George Harrison) and six covers, mostly of Motown and R&B hits. Most of the songs from the album were released in the United States as "Meet the Beatles!" on 20 January 1964, and the remaining that weren't, were released on their next U.S. album, "The Beatles' Second Album".

The LP had advance orders of a half million and sold another half million by September 1965 — making it the second album to sell a million copies in the UK (the first being the "South Pacific" soundtrack). It stayed at the top of the charts for 21 weeks, displacing "Please Please Me", so that the Beatles occupied the top spot for 51 consecutive weeks. It even reached number eleven in the "singles charts" (because at the time UK charts counted all records sold, regardless of format).
