From Bruce Spizer's Songs, Pictures and Stories of the Fabulous Beatles Records on Vee-Jay, p. 226:
"Remember the VJ release 581? It was 'Please Please Me' by the Beatles, and was VJ's biggest single seller of the year. We expect the same sales record from VJ 681, which introduces two Swiss discoveries, the brother-and-sister team of Pierre and Anne-Lyse. The two teenagers now live in America, after touring world capitals from Geneva to Morocco to Montreal, and Vee-Jay expects their unique arrangement of 'DON'T STOP' to be a hot chart buster.
Do start playing 'DON'T STOP.'
It will be a BIG one."
