The Decca tape went for £62 500

Half the Decca audition tape

Of course, mainstream media are all reporting about the most expensive item from the Beatles auction by Sotheby’s which finished yesterday. John Lennon forgot a pair of round sunglasses in a car, and they went for £137,500 (USD 183 218) – a tad more than the estimated £6-8,000 the auction house expected.

But we are more interested in the music, and a tape which once belonged to Brian Epstein and consisted of half of the Decca audition session was sold for £62 500 (USD 83 281).

A 1959 Hofner President ‘thinline’ semi-acoustic guitar, owned by George Harrison and given to Alan Herring seems to not have attracted high enough bids.

    It looks like my old copy of the White Album before it went missing.
