Moptops, 1981

Moptops, 1981

My brother, Tony, was three years old when he taught himself to read. He couldn't stand the idea of not knowing what it said on the back of my mother's Beatles records. Ever the completist, even at age five he was desperate to fill in some gaps in our Beatles collection -- hence this photo of him beaming on Christmas morning in 1981. Rubber Soul is also my favorite Beatles record, in case you were wondering.
