The Beatles recorded this in June 1961 in Hamburg, Germany, where they honed their skills playing clubs in 1960 and 1961. When they hit it big in 1964, their recording of "Ain't She Sweet" was released as a single; it's an anomaly in their discography, placed between their massive self-written hits "Can't Buy Me Love
" and "A Hard Day's Night
." It's a testament to the power of Beatlemania that a standard the band recorded three years earlier still did well, charting at #19 in the US and #29 in the UK.
The song didn't appear on an album until 1995 on the Anthology 1
