Rare Beatles 'Best Of Album' Acetate To Hit The Auctioning Block
The Beatles were suppose to release the Best of Beatles compilation in 1964 as a two LP set through Capitol Records. The project was to include the group's Capitol hits as well as some of their material from Vee-Jay but once the fact that Vee-Jay still owned the rights to the material until a later date was discovered, the set was shelved. Well now the rare acetates of the Best of Beatles album will be going up for auction with a starting bid of $10,000 on August 9th.
