On the Record, Vol. 5

Album: Easy Listening Beatles for People Who Hate Rock and Roll
Artist: Various Artists (Ray Conniff, Percy Faith, Andre Kostelanetz, Johnny Mathis, Peter Nero, and Jerry Vale)
Purchased: Greater Philadelphia Record Show, Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, Oaks, PA

Percentage Breakdown of Why I Bought It: 50% Album Title, 50% Cover
Pick Hit: Peter Nero's "Variations on the Theme 'Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da,'" which is easily better than the original (although that probably aint one of the Fab Four's greatest); Ray Conniff's "Hey Jude" is pretty hilarious, too
Should I, a Normal Human Being, Buy It?: If you hate rock and roll, then the answer is obvious. But even if you don't, there's enough weirdness for even a normal human being to enjoy it. And the album cover's awesome. If you come across it in a bargain bin (as I did), buy it.
Percent Chance That This Album Will Still Be Among My Belongings Available for Purchase at the Giant Yard Sale After My Demise: 87%
