A couple years ago I found out it is something of a collector's item--and of course I don't have it anymore (mom!!), along with various Beatles badges, souveniers that have become somewhat valuable.
The closest I got to a whatever-degree-of-separation "brush with Beatle fame" was meeting Bob Eubanks (through my musician mother)who was not only a local DJ at the time but, as a promoter, was largely responsible for bringing the Beatles to Southern California for their Dodger Stadium concert and others.

The album basically splits into two parts, songs which are complete junk, normally a dose of over self induldengce and those which are sheer genius, there never seems to be and inbetween and the junk and the genius come in equal measure.
