Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Dear Roy. Is this a record?
This is a picture-disc that I bought as a souvenir for Herschel from Real Groovy on Queen Street on 12th December 2007.

It contains recordings of This Boy and Can't Buy Me Love from their performance in Adelaide on June 12th 1964, although this release wasn't published until 1988.

Both sides feature the group's trademark screaming fans throughout, although it's fun to imagine that this is actually the sound of the left-facing kangaroo on the cover as it spins backwards at 45rpm.

Apparently, Herschel was so grateful for this gift that he's now planning to sell it on Ebay, hence this rare opportunity for me to hear it again tonight. I guess I should have seen this coming - he's always had this weak spot for making money by selling cheap entertainment overseas...
