Since I've gotten on the music project, I've discovered some things that don't make sense. Do any of you guys know the answers to the following?

The Beatles-
Their first two albums in the US are called "Meet the Beatles" and "The Beatles 2nd Album". I have the vinyl covers hanging in my guitar room.  So the only CD's/Downloads available are for "With The Beatles" and "Please Please Me". 
Any idea why this is the way it is?

Def Leppard-
Their first 3 great albums are nowhere to be found on any of the sites (ITunes, Amazon, Google Play).  Why?

Some bands simply don't want their music available.



As far as Def Leppard is concerned a royalties deal was in place with Universal but was nixed at the last minute by a higher up if I remember correctly.


Also I think some CD's for certain bands were formatted in such a way that they just aren't downloadable to I-Tunes if that makes sense.  Not techie enough to explain it properly.

When the albums were released in the UK they were called Please Please Me and With The Beatles, while the US releases were Meet The Beetles and The Beatles 2nd Album. When the albums were remastered and re-released around 2011, the decision was made to standardise how they were named across the world. The albums have the same tracks overall I believe.

As part of the standardisation, Magical Mystery Tour was made part of the collection which (if my dad tells it right) was only a US release and he had to get it imported back in the early 1970s.

Meet the Beatles, Beatles Second Album, Something New, Beatles '65 were all released in the United States by Capital Records. A Hard Days Night was released in the U.S. was released by United Artists. The U.S. releases barely ran 30 minutes, the UK Parlophone versions were usually around 14 songs. I loved the Capital releases. The songs had a completely seamless flow through them.
