With the Beatles - Dec 63

Drifting off topic a bit.

With the Beatles - one of the best Beatles albums. A very clear recording, the sound really hit you. The most popular tracks; All My Loving, Roll Over Beethoven and Money. Although I preferred: It won't be long, Don't bother me, Hold Me Tight and Not a Second Time. The Stones covered 'I wanna be your man' with some knockout guitar; lead, rhythm and bass, fair whipped the Beatles version IMHO.
