I often overlook this album. The second album from the Beatles followed the same formula as the first one – a mixture of self-penned numbers and covers. It was basically a second dose of their live act. For me it did not quite cut through the way first album did – probably because it was not quite so raw.
I bought this the day it came out and my fourteen-year-old self was desperate to play it. Unfortunately my record player broke and I couldn’t play. To make matters worse my mate Jeff came down and when he found I couldn’t play it he borrowed it. It took me a week to fix my record player!!
