EXTENDED PLAY (EP) RECORDS
"We thought that if we lasted for two to three years that would be fantastic."
- Ringo Starr
While popular in England and other countries, the extended play three- or four-song 45-RPM record format never caught on in the United States. Parlophone issued 13 Beatle EPs in the U.K. In the U.S. Capitol issued two and Vee-Jay issued one.

U.K. chart positions are from "Record Retailer." U.S. charts did not include EPs.
