Smash Hits

All You Need Is Love
Smash Hits

From the back cover: These then are 12 of the biggest smash hits for some of the finest solo and group stars on the pop scene, faithfully reproduced for your enjoyment so that you will find it difficult to tell the difference from the originals.

This skillfully worded paragraph, buried at the end of a long block of copy, tips you that this is a "covers" LP. The quality is pretty high for a diverse collection of "sound-alikes". However, faithfully reproducing the iconic phrases from any Beatles song is a challenge and the band struggles through the sample posted above.
