November 22, 2014 Record of the Day

“This Boy,” also known as “Ringo’s Theme,” was on the first Beatles album on Capitol records, “Meet the Beatles.” John Lennon tried to give the song a Motown feel. Paul McCartney said they were also influenced by the Phil Spector song “To Know Him is to Love Him” as sung by the Teddy Bears. In 1964, George Martin and his orchestra released the instrumental version of “Ringo’s Theme.” Released by United Artists, the 45 with picture sleeve is worth up to $100.00 today. Find the most up-to-date value of your records from Mighty John the Record Guy within 24 hours.
