OTD January 10 - Introducing the Beatles
30 / 45
Vee-Jay Records

1964: The Beatles' first album in the United States, "Introducing... The Beatles," is released. The album, released by Vee-Jay Records 10 days before Capitol Records' "Meet the Beatles!," was the subject of much legal wrangling. Ultimately, Vee-Jay was permitted to sell the album until late 1964, by which time it had sold more than 1.3 million copies.
