Go ahead and estimate the price of a 10-track tape by The Beatles.
If you guessed somewhere between $28,600 and $31,770, you’re a cheater, but more importantly, you’re correct.
The pricey tape comes from an audition session for the group to be signed by Decca Records on January 1st, 1962. It contains the songs, “Like Dreamers Do,” “Money,” “Take Good Care of My Baby,” “Sure to Fall,” “Three Cool Cats” and many more, but the recording ultimately failed to get the group signed.
The Examiner reports that the tape is being auctioned off by The Fame Bureau, and co-founder Ted Owen claims the quality to be “pristine”.
The auction will be taking place at 5PM (GMT) on November 27th at the London Playboy Club and contains many more items.
The Beatles’ double-decker bus will also be making its way to London according to NME, as it is scheduled to appear at Abbey Road Studios tomorrow night (November 21st).
The bus is more of an on-the-go record store that’s been travelling the world in order to promote the group’s recently remastered 14 stereo LPs. The custom made double-decker has already hit New York City and Los Angeles.
