Very Together was the only compilation of The Beatles' early recordings as The Beat Brothers released in Canada, released by Polydor Records—catalogue number 242.008. The cover, which features four candles with one snuffed out (a possible reference to the "Paul is dead" urban legend/hoax), was taken in 1969. One of just four albums to only be released in Canada, its scarcity in any condition is considerable. The content of this album is identical to the previously released European album The Beatles' First and the American album In the Beginning (Circa 1960) issued the following year.
