1965 Christmas Flexi-Disc

August 7th, 2010

The flexi-disc pictured here is from 1965, and it has the original packaging it was mailed in to the owner!!!  I think that is a wonderful piece of history.  It even has the name of the owner still on the packaging.

This disc was also issued with a newsletter insert, and came in a black and white sleeve.

It’s wonderful to get a little holiday cheer from the Beatles themselves!!!

1964 Christmas Flexi-Disc

August 6th, 2010

I figured I would continue on with the discussion about the Christmas flexi-discs!  The one pictured here is from 1964, and it is their second holiday flexi-disc.  It has a black and white sleeve.  Additionally, it came with a newsletter insert which folds open, as you can see from the photos.

I’ve never played this one, even though I have three copies!

Beatles Diary

August 1st, 2010

Welcome to my Beatles website!  This is my first, of hopefully many, posts for commentary and review.  The first item for discussion is my Beatles Diary for 1965.  It was made in Scotland for the 1965 calendar year, and it contains many photos and descriptions of the Beatles during that time frame.    This item is probably one of my favorites, because it is the first item that I ever purchased for my collection!

The Diary caught my eye at a convention because it was unique and affordable (at the time!).  I went to a NJ convention and I was overwhelmed by the amount of Beatles items for sale.  Records, dolls, games, magazines, trinkets….everywhere.  Haggling everywhere, too.  I had no idea what haggling was at the time, so I paid a whopping $30 for my 1965 Beatles diary in 1994.  It was small, different, and rare.  I liked that.
