My brother purchased this album back when it was released in late 1963. It was the very first LP in the family. I was seven at the time and it was the beginning of my life long love affair with the Beatles and was a big influence in my musical appreciation journey. Sadly my brother passed away at 32 and I inherited this album along with his entire and considerable Beatles Collection. My 24 year old daughter is already laying claim to it so hopefully it will become something of a family heirloom to be passed down.
