This was actually the first Beatles record that I ever got. I did have some cassettes of Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club but this was the first record I bought. I used to see ads in the old Jingle magazine and I saved enough to buy the album. I think it took me about five months to get this (but that's only because some of my other savings went to other things like comic books). LOVE SONGS is still a favorite of mine even after all these years.
