Please Please Me received it’s initial release on CD on 26 February 1987 along with With The Beatles, A Hard Day’s Night and Beatles For Sale. On the same day HMV released a limited edition (2500 copies) LP sized box set containing all four CDs and a “Book Of Beatles Lists” by Bill Harry. It had a four week run in the charts, peaking at number 32.
It was released again on CD on 9 September 2009 as part of the stereo remasters where it had a two week run in the charts peaking at number 38. In the initial week of the remastered releases The Beatles held 17 of the top 100 positions. Please Please Me was the eleventh highest of these.
I have 4 copies on CD, the one shown below, which is the original 1987 release, and 3 more in boxsets. This copy, catalogue number CDP 7 46435 2, is in excellent condition as can be seen by the pictures.
