A Very Beatles Christmas is Coming

Just in time for the holidays, Capitol/UMe will release a genuine and long-desired rarity for the first time. As far as The Beatles' back catalog goes, their fan club-only Christmas records are the most glaring missing pieces of the Livrpudlian puzzle aside from the Let It Be film. Released in the sixties on chintzy flexi-discs, the seven Christmas records the Fabs issued from 1963 to 1969 will be issued on colored vinyl in a limited edition box set this December 15. According to the official press release, the set will include all original picture sleeves and a 16-page booklet with "recording notes and reproductions of the fan club’s National Newsletters, which were mailed to members with the holiday flexi discs." 

As a little seasonal bonus, Capitol/UMe will also issue the recent stereo remix of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band as a limited edition picture disc LP. Happy Crimble!
