Rare Beatles Album Fetches $35,000
- Tuesday, August 13, 2013

One of the lowest numbered Beatles albums has fetched a winning bid of $35,000 (after buyers premium) with Heritage Auctions. The White Album, which had a U.S. Pressing number of A0000001, had previously belonged to Clifford J. Yamasaki of San Francisco's Let It Be Records. The auction also included a handwritten letter from Mr Yamasaki, explaining how he came to own it.

Here's an excerpt from that letter; "It (the record) is one of approximately two dozen copies given out as early promotional items to the Beatles and top Capitol Records executives. I purchased said copy from one of the above executives in the early 1970's. Said executive was head of the classical division at Capitol Records. The 'White Album' number A0000001 was shown at a Beatles Convention one time only. 'White Album' copies with this number A0000001 were never sealed with records or sold to the public."

Paul McCartney Gaining Rights
to Beatles Music in 2018, 2019
- Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Former Beatle Paul McCartney could reclaim the copyrights to a cache of his most famous tunes, but he’ll have to wait five years to do so.
Copyright laws allow songwriters to regain control of their pre-1978 compositions after 56 years. That means McCartney could control his Beatles songbook from 1962 (like “Love Me Do” and “P.S. I Love You”) in 2018 and an even bigger cache of tunes released in 1963, (“I Saw Her Standing There,” “Please Please Me,” and “Do You Want to Know a Secret’” among them) in 2019, MSN.com reported.

Movie Facts:

Magical Mystery Tour The Magical Mystery Tour film was essentially McCartney's idea, which was thought up as he returned from a trip to the U.S. in the late spring of 1967, and was loosely inspired by press coverage McCartney had read about Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters' LSD-fuelled American bus odyssey.[3] McCartney felt inspired to take this idea and blend it with the peculiarly English working class tradition of charabanc mystery tours, in which children took chaperoned bus rides through the English countryside, destination unknown. The film was critically dismissed when it was aired on the BBC's premier television network, BBC-1, on Boxing Day — a day primarily for traditional "cosy, family entertainment".[citation needed] While the film has historical importance as an early advance into the music video age, at the time many viewers found it plotless and confusing. Compounding this culture clash was the fact that the film was made in colour and made use of colour filters for some of the scenes - particularly in a sequence for "Blue Jay Way". In December 1967 practically no-one in the UK owned a colour receiver, the service only having started a few months earlier.y and critically; it was rated by Time magazine as one of the all-time great 100 films. British critic Leslie Halliwell described it as a "comic fantasia with music; an enormous commercial success with the director trying every cinematic gag in the book" and awarded it a full four stars. The film is credited as being one of the most influential musical films of all-time, inspiring numerous spy films, The Monkees' television show and pop music videos.
