Rare Beatles Acetate Auction
The acetates for an unreleased Beatles album will be auctioned off on August the 10th by Heritage Auctions in Dallas, Texas.

‘Best Of The Beatles’ was compiled by Capitol Records as a two-LP set in 1964 and featured the group’s Capitol and Vee-Jay hits to date. According to expert sources, Capitol wasn’t allowed to release the album as planned after they found out that Vee-Jay still had ownership of the tracks for another year.



Not only will the lucky bidder receive a copy of the unseen album, but with it comes a letter of authenticity from Clifford J Yamasaki of Let It Be Records in San Francisco which reads "I certify that this 2 LP acetate of 'The Best of the Beatles' is one of two known to exist and was purchased from a Capitol Records executive for a project that was scrapped. The project: #46934-41. The date of pressing: 6-2-64."
