Tollie Records

Tollie Records

Tollie Records was a record label formed in February, 1964, as a subsidiary label of Vee-Jay Records. It closed in May 1965.

The label distributed two of The Beatles' singles in the United States before Capitol Records eventually took over. The first single was "Twist And Shout" b/w "There's A Place" (Tollie 9001), which was released in February 1964, amid the flurry of Beatlemania that was sweeping the United States at that time. This single version of their recording reached the number 2 position on Billboard's Top 40 Hit Singles chart, while the other top 5 spots were also Beatles records ("Can't Buy Me Love", Capitol, No. 1; "She Loves You", Swan, No. 3; "I Want To Hold Your Hand", Capitol, No. 4; "Please Please Me", Vee-Jay, No. 5). The second single released was "Love Me Do" b/w "P.S. I Love You" (Tollie 9008), in April 1964. This single went all the way to number 1 in Billboard. Although the label released a total of 48 singles before it ceased operation in 1965, The Beatles records were the label's only million-sellers.
