Lost Beatles Recording Found 52 Years Later

first_imgA family was recently cleaning out their attic when they stumbled upon a 7-inch vinyl of the only known recording for “It’s For You” sung by Sir Paul McCartney. The song was co-penned by McCartney and John Lennon in 1964 for their dear friend and English singer Cilla Black. The voices were tracked separately, with McCartney sending his demo to Black for reference. The demo was apparently lost forever, until Black’s family found the 7-inch Dick James demo disc in a brown paper envelope a solid 52 years later. It is now being put up for auction, and is expected to go for £15,000 and £20,000. Wow! You can listen to Black’s version of the song, “It’s For You,” which earned itself No.7 in the UK during its release in July of 1964.[via CoS]last_img
