What song are they talking about in BITS & PIECES? 
"The Beatles LP will feature their very first jazz recording on which they are backed by five top British jazzmen."  Also a note about the "controversial" Beatles cover. (not even refered to as the "butcher cover" at this time)

ALL THESE THINGS not a national hit
but great in regional places.

Fantastic tune made even better
in the 70s by adding lush strings.
Great great tune by Uniques.

That DAY FOR DECISION is still
so relevant. Just change some
words and it's today's headlines.

July 4th was the perfect day to
listen to this again. But anyday will do.
