Rare Beatles recording up for grabsAugust 1st, 2008 - 5:17 pm ICT by ANI
London, August 1 (ANI): A half-hour Beatles recording featuring the Beatles cracking jokes and breaking into giggles will be auctioned in a music and entertainment sale on Tuesday.
Berkshire-based auction house Cameo has revealed that the footage contains John Lennon and Paul McCartney-composed songs, and versions of other artists compositions.
Recorded in 1964, the tape is expected to raise between 8,000 and 12,000 pounds.
Lennon and Sir Paul are said to be clearly audible on a number of occasions in a track called Ill Follow The Sun, which starts on the first side of the tape and goes into the second.
The Scotsman quoted the auction house as telling that Lennon can be heard saying, Im not looking at you, and Sir Paul as saying, You were.
Lennon says: Its just going to get funnier and funnier as the evening goes on, and Its 11 oclock you know.
Sir Paul says: Lets just try this once more and if its the last one thats hard lines.
A spokesman for Cameo said that the person who found the video wanted to remain anonymous.
He also revealed that the tape had been hidden away for around 40 years.
The tape features the songs: Dont Put Me Down Like This; I Feel Fine; Shes A Woman; Everybodys Trying To Be My Baby; Honey Dont and Ill Follow The Sun. On side two the Fab Four perform Ill Follow The Sun, Im A Loser, Ill Follow The Sun again, Too Much Monkey Business, Nitty Gritty, Somethings Gotta Hold Of Me and I Shall Not Be Moved. (ANI)
