Which Beatles albums had no singles?

British album releases generally did not include singles

Throughout The Beatles recording career they tried to avoid including already released singles on UK albums. Officially this was to avoid additional expense for teenage fans. An additional motivation was to encourage increased LP sales, as these were more expensive and profitable per unit.

Early recording sessions were generally scheduled for fourteen album track, plus two sides of a single

Of the twelve studio LP  releases, five contained no UK single: 

  • With The Beatles
  • Beatles For Sale
  • Rubber Soul
  • Sgt Pepper
  • The Beatles (White Album)
This rule did not apply with the first albums to be released in the US. 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' was included on Meet the Beatles
