|Detail :||The Beatles sixth Christmas 7" flexi distributed free to their fans through the fan club.
Recorded in November 1968 at the lush London homes of Beatle John and Beatle Paul and in the back of Beatle Ringo's diesel-powered removal van, somewhere in Surrey, The voice of Beatle George is heard because yours faithfully, the G.P.O., did something right and joined up 6,000 miles of telephone links at an appropriate moment. Additional material was recorded earlier in the elegant Esher home of Beatle George during rehearsal sessions for "The Beatles" LP album set.
The 1968 and 1969 Christmas flexis are double-sided and while all of the previous flexi's had paper record labels, the 1968 and 1969 disks have the information printed on the black flexi disk with white ink (mine is too faded to scan).
For this fan-club disc the four Beatles recorded their separate items wherever they happened to be.
It was edited together by Radio 1 disc-jockey Kenny Everett.
