The Beatles Seventh Christmas Record, Lyntone LYN 1970/1971.

Published March 26th, 2012

The seventh Beatles Christmas recordwas issued by Official Beatles Fan Club in December 19, 1969. The final Beatles Christmas offering was also recorded separately, as the band had effectively split by this point. It features an extensive visit with John and Yoko at their Tittenhurst Park estate, where they play “what will Santa bring me?” games. Harrison only appears briefly, and Starr only shows up to plug his recent film, The Magic Christian. Paul sings his original ad-lib, “This is to Wish You a Merry, Merry Christmas.” Starting at 1:30, at the tail-end of Ringo’s song, the guitar solos from “The End” are heard, followed by Yoko interviewing John.

The disc was packaged in cardboard sleeve disigned by a Beatle. Sleeve was printed and made by West Brothers-Printers-Limited. Credited to Richard Starkey and Zak Starkey, the Ringo and son collaboration has colorful swirling images on its festive from side and a back and white drawing of people and a flowered tree on the back.

For the second year in row, the length of the Christmas messages (7:39) necessitated that the recording be pressed on both sides of the flexi-disc. The disc has text printed in silver on Side 1. Matrix numbers: Side 1; LYN 1970-1L; Side 2: LYN 1971-1L.
