Fab Four Your Stockings!

Ok ya'll, here's some more trippy fun stuff, as promised, from John, Paul, George and Ringo. Starting in 1963, the Beatles began recording and releasing special 6-7 minute Christmas 7 inch flexidisc singles, (these look like singles, only they're thinner and made of plastic).

These are the second and third in a series of Beatles Christmas recordings made exclusively for the members of their official fan club. I'm sure these will all be release in some official capacity at some point, but for now, these records are pretty rare and difficult to get hold of.

First, I know you'll dig Another Beatles Christmas Record Recorded on October 26, 1964, and relased December 18, 1964 (Lyntone LYN 757).

Next is The Beatles Third Christmas Recorded on November 8, 1965 and released December 17, 1965 (Lyntone LYN 948.

And, if you're good, I'll have the other four of the seven up soon. Now, back to my Christmas coffee.

Merry Kringle,
