Whilst trying to think of a title for the first Beatles album, George Martin came up with "Off The Beatle Track". Although this idea was rejected, clearly Mr. Martin liked the title and used it himself in 1964 for this outing.
Quite collectable, this album is worth about £30.
One single was released from this L.P. - "I Saw Her Standing There" b/w "All My Loving" (Parlophone R 5135).
The sleeve notes on the rear of the album are by John Lennon. Here are some quotes from it :
