The Beatles - Songs, Pictures & Stories



One of my favorite releases on the Vee-Jay label from back in the day (1964, even before my time) and, also one of the most often bootlegged of their catalogue. Early Lennon/McCartney originals interspersed with some R&B gems of the time make for a nice outing. I have so very many Beatles' records/dics and am tempted to begin posting some rarities for you kind folks coming soon, beginning with this one and following (hopefully tomorrow) with the collection of Christmas records they did. I remember sitting in my room as a youth and listening to these songs (albeit on a different record) on my Bee Gee's portable record player - with the Brothers Gibb in all their sequinned glory on the front and singing my 8 year-old lungs out. Ah, the memories - they fade when you get old like me, you know.

I wish I was as young as you are old! I BELIEVED you when you told me you were OLD!

While I've only been one for 11 days.... Old is when you can reference your GRANDSON!
So, I just wanted to say THANKS!! And bitch about how NOT OLD you really are! (BTW, this would have been a much better comment if SMILES were available...Insert one here!)
