Released in January, 1964 in a VJ Records company sleeve.
I am not aware of any evidence that Beatles records on the VJ label were imported into Canada from the USA, but I do believe it is a possibility. Alternatively, many Canadians returning from the USA brought records back with them. Either way this copy found it's way to Canada.
The original owner of this particular record told me he purchased it in Montreal in 1964. So it is possible small numbers of VJ records were imported into Canada as this song pairing of "Please Please Me" backed with "From Me To You" was not released by Capitol Records Canada.
In Canada, Capitol's release of "Please Please Me" backed with "Ask Me Why" was issued about 10 months earlier than the VJ issue.
It is unproven but possible that the hugh demand for Beatles items, especially in 1964, could have led to this record being imported and sold in Canada. #musicrecord#vinyl
