Beatles Hit Records

I hope Regis Philbin producer Michael Gelman is taking a LOT of heat for dissing Ringo Starr. I did a little research, it turns out this group, the Beatles, had a few hits.

Here they are.
How many other people on earth have a resume like this, Mr. Gelman? You sure don't.
Suck on this, Michael Gelman

U.S. albums
In the United States, as noted above, The Beatles albums were rearranged, retitled and remixed. Some of the U.S. releases were nearly identical to their UK counterparts, often only varying by one or two songs. Most releases contained songs that were also found on other records, which made things difficult for the American Beatles fan trying to purchase the band's entire catalogue. By 1967, beginning with Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, all U.S. releases matched the UK releases exactly (with the exception of the UK double EP Magical Mystery Tour (1967), which was released as an LP in the U.S. and included extra tracks not found on the UK release).

Canadian compilations and other releases
All post-Beatles albums were released exactly the same in Canada as in the U.S., with the exception of:

Very Together, Polydor (Fall 1969)
The Beatles' Ballads, Capitol Records (1980-10-13)

Extended plays (EPs)
During the years that the Beatles were together and recording, album tracks were not customarily released as singles, and vice versa. Instead, EMI would release album tracks as EPs, long singles with two songs per side. With two exceptions, the EPs feature songs also available on Beatles albums, rather than original material.

Canadian singles
As appeared on the "CHUM Hit Parade" charts between the weeks of Monday 6 January 1963 and Saturday 8 January 1977.[2] Capitol of Canada said yes to The Beatles from day one and issued early Beatle singles in their 72000 series of Canada only releases[1] before aligning with the American company's numbering system when the American company began issuing Beatle singles. American Beatle recordings issued on the Vee-Jay, Swan and Tollie labels were issued by Capitol of Canada with 72000 series catalogue numbers.

Christmas records
The Beatles also recorded annual Christmas records for their fan club members. From 1963 to 1969 these were released as 7" flexidiscs on LYN. In 1970 the 7 previous records were put onto a 12" vinyl record, From Then to You. These remain largely unavailable today (although they have been widely bootlegged), with the exception of one track, "Christmas Time Is Here Again", which was edited and released on the Free As a Bird CD single in 1994:
