The Beatles' Third Christmas Record, 1965

Merry Christmas! This is our last post for the year and we thought we'd sign out the same way the Beatles did 50 years ago, with their annual Christmas record. We'll see you in 2016!

The Beatles' third annual Christmas flexi-disk was recorded on Nov. 8, 1965, at Abbey Road and mailed out starting in mid-December.

Like all the rest of the Christmas recordings the band released between 1963 and 1969, it was issued to Beatles Fan Club members only and has never been officially reissued. In 1970, Fan Club members received a vinyl LP compiling all the previous Christmas records.

Here we present the entire contents, including back cover liner notes, photo inserts and newsletter message.
