"Love Songs" is the first Beatles album I can remember hearing end to end and asking "Who are THESE guys?" My big sis wasn't a huge fan, but liked them enough to point me in the general direction. She also goes with me to see 'The Return', a locally-based Beatles tribute band, so she must like the music more now....maybe she's following ME now?
I made a "Rock-n-Roll" CD comp. of my own using the tracks off the 2 albums...the concept was sound, as these records didn't just trot out the 'greatest hits'. You actually got some of the rarities, at a time when I had no idea what a bootleg was and the EP's some of this stuff was on were impossible for a middle-schooler to find.
