1963: The Beatles release their debut album in the U.K. Please Please Me includes 14 tracks, including eight John Lennon/Paul McCartney originals. Among the originals are the title track and Love Me Do. Among the covers is Twist and Shout. Producers want to shoot the album cover photo at the London Zoo, but permission to do so is denied. Thus the shot of the four boys looking over the railing in a stairwell at EMI Studios.
