With the Beatles is The Beatles' second UK album. It was recorded four months after the band's first album, Please Please Me and was released on 22 November, 1963. The album sold so well in England, it qualified to enter the hit singles charts.

Most of the songs were used again in the first American Beatles album issued by Capitol Records, Meet The Beatles! Other songs appeared on The Beatles' Second Album. In 2003, the album was ranked number 420 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
