Music History

In 1965, Paul McCartney Made a Christmas Record for his Bandmates. Only Four Were Pressed Up and Then Lost. Until Now.

In December 1965, Paul McCartney created a special Christmas record in the offices of Dick James for his mates featuring him playing DJ. The tape was transferred to record and just four were ever made. And then they were presumed lost.

Hold on, sunshine. Something just showed up on YouTube. This isn’t taken from any of those records, but we do have the master tape.
