The Beatles’ Christmas Record, Lyntone LYN 492.

Published March 26th, 2012

The first Beatles Christmas record was distributed by the Official Beatles Fan Club on December 9, 1963. Beginning in 1963, the Beatles started a holiday tradition of recording Christmas messages for their fans. The first Christmas recording from the Beatles featured several renditions of the traditional carol “Good King Wenceslas” and individual messages from the four, ending with a closing chorus of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Ringo”. The recordings were edited and issued on flexi-discs through the Official Beatles Fan Club in England. The records were not available for sale, but were distributed free to Fan Club members. Tony Barrow came up with the concept for the Christmas records and scripted the initial efforts.

The record was packaged in yellow paper gatefold cover. The open gatefold contains the Fun Club’s National Newsletter No. 2.

Lynton Recordings pressed 25,000 copies of the one-sided seven inch discs, which have white labels with dark blue print. Disc plays at 33 1/3 Рrpm. Total time: 5:00. Matrix number LYN 492-1U.
