Who Were The Tokyo Beatles?

This Japanese cover band's one and only album was called Please Please Me. You know, like The Beatles' first album?

The Beatles released their first album in 1963, and not long after, Beatlemania took over. Japan was no exception, as evidenced by this obscure but enthusiastic imitation band called the Tokyo Beatles.

It appears that the Tokyo Beatles' Please Please Me had only four tracks:

1. I Want To Hold Your Hand

2. Please Please Me

3. Can't Buy Me Love

4. Twist And Shout

Here you can listen to some samples of the Tokyo Beatles' covers. Still catchy.
