From Widipedia:

Long Tall Sally by The Beatles was their fifth official EP release, and the first British EP that included songs not previously released on an album or single. It was put out by Parlophone in mono with the catalogue number GEP 8913 and released in the UK on 19 June 1964. The four songs from this EP were remastered for compact disc by George Martin, and released in 1988 on the Past Masters, Volume One compilation.

"I Call Your Name" was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, a song they originally gave to Billy J. Kramer and his backing band the Dakotas. Kramer released it as the B-side to "Bad to Me", a Lennon song that Kramer took to number 1. The remaining songs were covers.

The picture on the album cover is taken by the Swedish photographer Bosse Trenter in Stockholm 25 October 1963. (Source: Börje Lundberg och Ammi Bohm: Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! The Beatles erövrar Sverige, pages 76–79)
