The second-greatest rock 'n' roll record in the history of the eardrum;
amazingly, for a couple weeks in early '64 it was right behind the
all-time greatest (I hope I don't have to tell you what *that* was)
in the Billboard Top 10.  Then some British novelty act came along and
spoiled everything.  --AWR
