COMMENTS
"Ain't She Sweet" was also performed by The Beatles (with John Lennon on lead vocals). It was recorded on June 23, 1961 at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle, Hamburg, Germany with Pete Best on drums, and Bernard Purdie for drum overdubs, produced by Bert Kaempfert.

The first edition of the single has an orange label while later editions have a red label. The re-edition with red label was probably released in 1967.
