The Beatles' cover of Carl Perkins' 1956 hit Matchbox was first released in the UK on their Long Tall Sally EP, and in the US as a single, coupled with Slow Down. It was also released on the Something New album. Matchbox was intended to be Ringo's feature on the album, but was later deemed surplus to requirements and so it appeared on the Long Tall Sally EP. In the studio. Carl Perkins was on tour in Britain in 1964, and on 1 June he was visiting Abbey Road when The Beatles recorded his song. There are rumours he played the low guitar riff that opens the song. It took The Beatles five takes to perfect. Ringo played drums and sang simultaneously, and later double-tracked his vocals. On the same night the group also recorded I'll Cry Instead, Slow Down and I'll Be Back.

Something New is a 1964 album by English rock band the Beatles. Originally scheduled for 1 August 1964, the album was rush-released on 20 July 1964, ten days after the British release of A Hard Day's Night.

The Beatles is a 1968 album by the band of the same name, The Beatles. Its cover included no photographs, but was a simple white jacket, with the band's name die-stamped onto the paper. Early copies also included a serial number. The plain white cover led fans and listeners to call the record the "White Album". In time, even the band and their company, Apple Corps, began to use this name.
