Review by AtomicCrimsonRush
3 stars Grab this US Capitol Beatles album on vinyl if you can otherwise these tracks are on just about every compilation album. The standout tracks are Love Me Do, Twist and Shout, Chains, Boys, Ask Me Why, Please Please Me, P.S. I Love You, A Taste of Honey, and Do You Want to Know a Secret. So it does have quite a few terrific treasures from the Fab Four. And released in 1965 on my Birth year, well it has a bit of sentimental value to me.

The cover itself is quite rare and these old US releases can fetch quite a pretty penny. The music though as I mentioned is nothing new these days, even as a starting point for The Beatles it would be far more advantageous to listen to "1" or "Love" or the Anthology releases, or just about any recent compilation. Though this is way better than "Spooky Songs".
