Here's a picture of the album that was my first. From what I understand, a few other kids also purchased this record.
I'd say it has stood the test of time. Better perhaps than my first .45 -- "Surfin' Safari"/ "409" by the Beach Boys. (I liked them fine, but they would soon prove they could do much better.) Not sure why I picked that, because I remember going to Woolworth's with the intention of buying a copy of "Monster Mash."
No mystery about why we bought "Meet The Beatles!"
