Many years ago my Grandad gave me a vinyl beatles LP called "Beatles Greatest". It is a collection of their hit singles and includes some album tracks. It must date form early-mid 1965 since the latest track is Ticket To Ride. I will try to get pictures of it up shortly but i don't have time right now.

I have this upstairs! Got it in a record shop in Dundee years ago for about £14. I don't think its rare just a foreign release.

I (well actually my parents) also have this album, probably from 1965. My grandparents have it somewhere in their house. 

Before I liked the Beatles (stupid!!!) I saw this album, now since my Beatle obsession begun I was wondering what the album was but I had no access to it. I just remembered the front cover but couldn't figure out the album's name. Now I finally know it, thanks!!!

I think that meanmistermustard  is right about the foreign release. My parents lived in Holland so probably bought it there.

It does actually say "Made In Sweden" on the label. But would it have been available to buy in Britain?
