Paul’s Christmas album
During Christmas 1965, Paul McCartney went to music publisher Dick James’ studio to transfer a tape onto disc as a present for his fellow Beatles. Only four copies were ever pressed, with many – including McCartney – believing they were lost in the mists of time. On December 1, Simon Wells uploaded Paul McCartney’s 1965 Christmas album (or what’s left of it) to YouTube. In 2011, a vinyl bootleg with this material appeared. Apparently one tape which used to contain the album was taped over by John and Ringo, but 18:33 of the original 26 minute tape has been restored. Paul is acting as a DJ here, with a heavy American accent, announcing the songs.
