52 years after it was first produced, a rare piece of Beatles
history is available on YouTube. A Christmas compilation Paul McCartney
created for his bandmates has been uploaded online.
The compilation is titled Unforgettable
, and it is believed that only three copies of it were ever printed: one each for John, George, and Ringo
, who received it on acetate discs as Christmas presents in 1965. On the album, McCartney plays the role of DJ, introducing each of the compiled songs and adding in some improv of his own. "And so in this program, Unforgettable
, we hope that you are not gonna forget us and are gonna join in," McCartney riffs in his introduction.Unforgettable
takes its name from the Nat King Cole
number that leads it off. Other songs featured in the compilation include "I Get Around" by The Beach Boys
and "Don't Be Cruel" by Elvis Presley
