Released in 1964 as the soundtrack album to the movie of the same title,  A Hard Day’s Night showcased the band’s collective songwriting talent and was the first Beatles album to feature entirely original material. This vintage cover for the album is signed on the reverse side by members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

A Hard Day’s Night is the third studio album released by the Beatles on July 10, 1964, two weeks after the American version was released in the United States. Every single track out of the 13 listed on the album was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, making it the first Beatles album to feature entirely original compositions. The album includes “A Hard Day’s Night” and “Can’t Buy Me Love,” two of the band’s songs that ended up becoming transatlantic number-one singles.
