Music 06/12/2017

Only four copies were known to exist of Paul McCartney’s Christmas record, a gift he had made for his Beatles bandmates in 1965.

But now, YouTuber Simon Wells has uploaded the full and original 18.30 minute long album onto the Internet for the whole world to enjoy his ‘lost, experimental’ record.

“During the Christmas of 1965, Paul McCartney went to music publisher Dick James' studio to transfer a tape onto disc as a present for his fellow Beatles,” says the description on YouTube.

“With Paul playing [an American] DJ and the occasional guest spot, he'd call the album "Unforgettable".

Hear Paul’s DJ impression, and his performances of "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole, "Someone Ain't Right" by Peter and Gordon, "I Get Around" by the Beach Boys, "Heat Wave" by Martha and the Vandellas, "Don't Be Cruel" by Elvis Presley and "Down Home Girl" by the Rolling Stones.
