Beatles Christmas greetings 1963-1969

Postby Jeff in Ohio » Sat Dec 10, 2011 12:29 pm

Dug out my old "Beatles Christmas Album" containing their fan club recordings for 1963 through 1969. Listening to these makes it obvious how they gradually drifted apart. The early years they're together in the studio during the recordings, laughing it up, goofing around, so much energy. By 1968 they're doing their own separate messages, and in 1969 it's obvious the band is not a band anymore (although Paul's song "This is to wish you a merry christmas" is awesome IMO). If you haven't heard these before, I think you'll enjoy.

Here's a link to the whole thing (43 minutes...grab a holiday drink and enjoy!!).

I have the LP that I got years ago from a mail order place. Does anyone know why it's not been released officially over the years? Seems like a no-brainer and a cash cow waiting to happen...

ahawk, just speculating here...but i think it is to remain a collectors item due to its rare-ness.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
