Beat-A-Mania!

Please Please Me
Baby You Can Do Not Wrong
Beat-A-Mania!
Spectrum/Pickwick International
SDLP-172
1962

I find this album to be a "hoot" even though the set is the most unbearable Beatles exploitation effort. The studio instrumental group backing the vocals sounds sounds pretty good, sort of rough and twangy. However, apparently Spectrum could only find an incompetent college folk quartet to do the impersonations.

Spectrum even printed "AuthentiPhonic" on the label in a subtle effort to fool the record buyer.

So bad it's good, or so bad it's still pretty bad?

She Love You
In A Little While
Tell Me Now
Night Without End
Won't You Come Out Tonight
Please, Please Me
Baby You Can Do No Wrong
I Don't Need You
What Shall I Do
Don't Tell Me You Don't Know
