After the release of this album, Beatles' records in Canada would match the group's United States releases, starting with the United Artists version of the A Hard Day's Night album, and, on Capitol, Something New. This was done under orders from Capitol president Alan W. Livingston. Earlier American Beatle album releases were also issued in Canada.
The cover design is almost identical to the US release The Beatles' Second Album.

The album was deleted in 1967 but was reissued in 1971 along with the two other unique Canadian Beatles albums in Capitol's "6000 Series". The album was issued in stereo for the first time in 1976, though nearly all the "stereo" tracks are in the "reprocessed for stereo" format. This process involves creating a "dual mono/simulated stereo" sound by emphasizing the higher frequencies on the right channel and lower frequency on the left.
