@stealurface, These tracks are just kind of a strange glimpse into the mindset of the Beatles at the time. The thing I find the most odd is that this was really them communicating with the fan club. It is a very strange communication. There are some gems mixed in, but for the most part I think you are right. They are a painful listen, though kind of funny and clever at times. For the die-hard, they are definitely worth a listen or two. Don't pay $500 for the silly thing.

I was a member of The Beatles Fan Club and recieved this album when the club closed shop.Back in 1987 I was listening to a radio show about collectables,I called up,explained what I had and he said it was worth at least $500.00.It wasn't too long after that I broke up with a girl and moved out.I never got that album back.It still holds special memories for me when I think of it.The Beatles had a lot of fun making it each year I'm sure.

The great thing about this collection is that it mirrors the growing talents and studio sensibilities that the Fabs developed as there careers bloomed. The first couple of greetings are recorded after long days in the studio, they are half in the bag (drunk) and cracking each other up, they are lose and in 1964 and '65 there were very few times when their guards were down. On these recordings they weren't just down, they were gone. They are very creative, fun recordings that taken in context of those times are really enjoyable and a peek inside their world for the then Fan Club members. Great Fun!
