Please Please Me
Baby You Can Do Not Wrong
Spectrum/Pickwick International

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?
