Default From Me to You

Does anyone know why Capitol Records in the States never released "From Me to You" on an American album before the greatest-hits collections?

I found something that might answer your question:

"Under the terms of their agreement on 10th January 1983, Vee-Jay has first refusal on every Beatle disc for the next five years - so Capitol weren't even offered 'From Me To You'. They'd blown it!" LINK

Does everyone know that Del ("Runaway") Shannon released a cover of this song in the States in 1963, before the Beatles hit it big on this side of the Atlantic? I wonder if this has anything to do with the song not appearing on a Capitol album while the Beatles were still together.
