Back by popular demand! The Record Theater: The Beatles’ Second Album (Capitol 2080) in Mono. Imagine a theater. As Chuck Berry would say “the place is packed.” Lights go out. An album cover is on the screen. Suddenly, a vinyl record is being played.

From the first song on side one, to the last song on side two. No phones. No computers. No interruptions. 

To continue The GRAMMY Museum’s celebration of The Beatles’ 50th Anniversary in America during the year 2014, join us as we welcome you to the Clive Davis Theater to experience the legendary Beatles’ Second Album in mono, as originally released on vinyl in 1964. After the record ends, former President of Apple Records, Jack Oliver and co-author of Recording the Beatles Brian Kehew, will join Etzioni on stage for a discussion.

Q: Which artist was the first to replace itself at number one on the US album charts? 

A: The Beatles with The Beatles’ Second Album, which went to number one, knocking off Meet the Beatles!

Here’s another clue for you all: 

The last song on The Beatles’ Second Album ends with “YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!”
