Knock knock. Who's there? Beatles!

I love this sort of thing (this sort of thing being knock off albums) and I especially like knock-off Beatles albums. Fairly obviously designed to fool parents trying to buy the latest English sensation for their kid too young to shop for him/herself, they range from execrable to not bad. This one is somewhere in the middle, with the actual Beatles covers being the least interesting.
I especially appreciate the way that they incorporate Beatles suggestions ("whooo", "holding your hand", etc.) into their "original" songs. Apparently this collection of tracks has be
en released under a couple of different band names/album titles, including Billy Pepper & the Pepperpots and The Pop Machine.
