AUTHENTIC LP - Rare!
THE BEATLES CHRISTMAS ALBUM
A specially made LP just for Official Beatles Fan Club Members in 1970. Members didn't need to buy it because the Fan Club sent them out complimentary just for members to enjoy. Each year from 1963 to 1969 The Beatles would record a special Christmas message for their Fan Club members, and it would be sent to them in the form of "sound-sheets" or "flexi-discs", which are those little floppy records that were sometimes contained in magazines. So each year the members would receive one of these. But they weren't real records and wore out quite easily. They could even be bent, or torn and easily damaged. So to make them all more permanent and give a special Christmas gift to the Fan Club members, The Beatles and Apple Records (their label) compiled all of the Christmas messages together into one LP. It became so rare and sought after that it has since been bootlegged by many many companies around the world. This one is one of the original, authentic official issues directly from the Fan Club. It has the "Theater Royal " in the 2nd bottom picture from the left, on the front cover, over the heads of John & Paul. In the photos you can see the album slick pasted front over back like it's supposed to, and the artwork is NOT printed directly onto the jacket. It has everything it is supposed to have because it is a real Fan Club issue from 1970. It is still factory sealed. Is not a re-wrap, nor re-issue, nor a bootleg or anything other than the genuine item. It is a beautiful copy that has been stored in a clear vinyl shuck all these years, and appears to be in incredible condition. It has never been opened.
This album was for BEATLES Fan Club Members only - Very exclusive - and was NEVER available to the public, nor retail stores at any time - Was also never officially released on CD, cassette or otherwise.
