The Beatles – It's Only Love
CD shows minor wear but plays PERFECTLY
Sound quality is Excellent.
Liner notes claim the CD is Live in Bristol, September 5, 1966, but in fact the disc contains a series of ultra-rare tracks and alternate takes.

Just discovered in the back of a closet a box of music CDs I purchased 15 to 20 years ago in various Asian & European countries (mostly Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, and Italy). All the discs in this batch are factory-manufactured CDs purchased in department stores and major-chain music shops, NOT homemade CD-Rs.
