Consisted of covers of Beatles songs "I Want To Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You" with some originals.Despite the cover displaying "The original Liverpool sound", and claiming to have been "Recorded in England," The Buggs hailed from New Jersey and the album was actually recorded in the New York/New Jersey area.The Buggs were never a real band; rather, the album was recorded by a group named the Coachmen V from Bergen County, New Jersey, under the impression that it would be released under that name. The album was produced by Goldie Goldman, who hired a songwriter to write the original tracks. Some rehearsing of the material was done in Nyack, New York at Scotty's Bar, after which the album was recorded. Band personnel included Bill Omolski on bass, Gary Wright (later became a member of Spooky Tooth.and later to have a successful solo career with hits such as Dream Weaver) on organ and vocals, Frank Zillitto on guitar, Steve Bogue on drums, and either Eddie Brick or Jimmy Carrol on lead vocals (Brick and Carrol both worked as lead vocalist for the Coachman V at different times, and it's not known which one sang on the Buggs album). Studio musician Trade Martin also played on album.Band members were surprised (and unhappy) when they discovered that album had been released under a different band name, under false pretenses, and with models representing the band members, and when no royalties were ever paid, The Buggs ceased to exist. In 1966, Coronet released Boots a Go-Go (Coronet, CX-212-A: 1966)repackaging the same Beetle Beat album two years later now with a go-go music storyline on the back cover and a picture of a go-go dancer on the front and back covers. According to the back cover, the Buggs' "go go sound" was "grown up rock 'n' roll" played at discotheques and on Hullaballoo. Cleverly, no song titles were featured on the album's front or back cover so that unaware buyers wouldn't know that this was exactly the same Buggs' music from their previous and, technically, only release. As a result, the record's label didn't reference the "Boots a Go-Go" title as the original unsold Beetle Beat vinyl was simply repurposed inside. Their influence may have been limited but Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh said that Beetle Beat was his first album purchase thinking it was a Beatles album. Mothersbaugh said, "One track pissed me off so much it eventually inspired the nasty Devo song, "U Got Me Bugged"

This is a highly enjoyable, very catchy album overall, with the Beatles covers falling sadly short but the originals making up for those deficiencies. A bit more like the Searchers or Hollies than the Fab 4. Standouts include Mersey Mercy ("You Got Me Bugged") and Big Ben Hop ("Sassy Sue"). Liverpool Drag is indeed a bit of a drag, an IWTHYH rewrite as "I wish you'd leave that man." I pull this one out for pleasure surprisingly often, moreso than any of the other ripoff albums.
