Maccas becomes a Christmas DJ for his Beatles bandmates
Paul McCartney‘s incredibly rare and long-lost Christmas album ‘Unforgettable’ has resurfaced over 60 years since it was first made.
Sir Paul made the album a Christmas present in 1965 for his three bandmates in The Beatles. These three copies plus McCartney’s original were reportedly the only ones to be made. Now, it has resurfaced on Youtube.
While the record features no new or original material from McCartney or The Beatles, it does feature Sir Paul introducing a playlist of tracks by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Elvis, and Nat King Cole.
“I had two Brenell tape recorders set up at home, on which I made experimental recordings and tape loops, like the ones in ‘Tomorrow Never Knows,'” McCartney told Per Mark Unterberger’s in his book The Unreleased Beatles: Music and Film. “And once I put together something crazy, something left-field, just for the other Beatles, a fun thing which they could play late in the evening. It was just something for the mates, basically.”
Last month, the diaries were put on display at Berlin police headquarters – along with two pairs of his iconic round specs, a tape recording of a Beatles concert, sheet music and a cigarette case. The collection of items were stolen from Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono back in 2006.
