Differences from Please Please Me
- "I Saw Her Standing There" (the opening track of Please Please Me) and "Misery" were omitted from Twist and Shout. They both appear on the next Canadian LP release, The Beatles' Long Tall Sally.
- "From Me to You" and "She Loves You" were added to Twist and Shout. They were issued as the A-sides of singles in the UK.
- Both albums' front and back covers differ significantly.
Twist and Shout received miscellaneous reissues since the initial release date. The initial release was exclusively mono audio, because stereo record players were not popular in Canada at the time of release and therefore not profitable.Early copies of the record were manufactured with a limited edition 8x10 inch poster of the Beatles. The subsequent reissues attributed Parr's, the printer commissioned by Capitol to create the cardboard record jackets as well as other minor variations in the label, font size, and catalogue numbers. Twist and Shout was eventually reissued in stereo in the 1970's, bearing catalogue number ST-6054 to denote stereo audio; all tracks were in stereo except for "Love Me Do", "P.S. I Love You", and "She Loves You", which remained mono. The stereo reissue is considered to be the definitive version.
