(last two released as a single on Tollie records around 6 months earlier.)
I has a 2/3 flap on the front with drawings of the boys. Bios and has hilarious heart shaped spaces on the back for the girls (hopefully) where they could paste their picture under a pic of each Beatle--caption: Paul loves ect.
Macca is listed first on the inner opposite of the flap with the following:
Paul is sometimes called the "Nut Beatle" or Beatle Nut" (Take that Kameamea) because he is the zaniest of the group-he has the quickest wit-loudest laughter and carziest sense of humour and is a habitual practical joker. Paul is the only Beatle with jet black hair-he has a strong straight nose and a full lower lip and gleaming white teeth. He hates to shave and calls it the curse of mankind. He favors tight clothes and in case you'd like to shop for him his collar size is 15" and his waist size 30". He is indiffernt to what he eats and can make do with very little sleep-he loathes pajamas and prefers to sleep raw-hates tub baths and loves showers. Oh yes-and one more thing. He hates jelly beans.
Has listings for Real Name, Birthplace,Birthdate, And....

The others have similair bios. Pauls, curiously enough is the shortest. Johns say, in part, That he is the "Cheif Beatle".
Great stuff on here from a much simpler time. Captitol relaeased the same album a year and half later under the title "The Early Beatles".
VeeJay reissued years later under the same title, but with a much differnt cover.
