The Beatles' annual holiday tradition of recording jolly "Beatle People." Spanning 1963 to 1969, The Beatles' holiday recordings were originally pressed on the flexi discs and mailed to the fan club members each December.
The first Beatles Christmas recording contained several performances of the traditional "Good King Wenceslas" hymn and personal congratulations from each of the "four" and ended with a chorus from "Ricky the Red-Nosed Ringo."  A short version of this record was sent to members of the American fan club in December 1964, while members of the English fan club received it in 1963.
The recording was included as a bonus in The Beatles: Rock Band and was available for free download on iTunes from December 23, 2010 to January 9, 2011. 1964 : Another Beatles Christmas Record Recorded on: October 26, 1964
The song "Jingle Bells" was accompanied by personal messages to the fans. John, in his statement, mimics Paul Harvey (English Paul Harvey, bass clarinetist, in particular, participated in the recording of the song "It's All Too Much") and imitates his words and even improvisation. The recording is pumped in with a short performance of the traditional song "Oh Can You Wash Your Father's Shirt?". This record was not sent to American fans, because this year they received a recording in 1963. 1965 : The Beatles' Third Christmas Record Recorded: November 8, 1965
The recording starts with the song "Yesterday", performed a cappella together with "Happy Christmas to Ya List'nas", sung by Lennon. Then follows the song "Auld Lang Syne", and part of the song "It's the Same Old Song" by the group Four Tops, which was stopped in the middle so as not to infringe copyrights; the message ends with the poem "Christmas Comes But Once a Year".
Members of the American fan club did not receive this entry (as well as any other) in 1965. But they received a picture of the "Great Four" with the inscription "Congratulations of Paul, Ringo, John and George." Later the fan club explained this by saying that the tape was sent too late to prepare it for Christmas. 1966 : The Beatles' Fourth Christmas Record - Pantomime: Everywhere It's Christmas Recorded: November 25, 1966
Recorded after yesterday's first session of "Strawberry Fields Forever". The incoherent collection of songs and jokes of the Beatles was offered to the listener in a recording of 1966. It includes "Everywhere It's Christmas", "Orowainya" and "Please Do not Bring Your Banjo Back". Also in the record are heard fragments of "Podgy the Bear and Jasper" and "Felpin Mansions".
Again, members of the American fan club did not receive this entry. In return they were sent a postcard with the Beatles congratulation. 1967 : Christmas Time is Here Again!

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
