Cassette cavalcade: Unheard Beatles-related tapes - including George's "Hitler Tapes" - up for auction

Omega Auctions is featuring dozens of Beatles-related items in a new auction, including several cassette tapes of rare, Beatles-related recordings, such as the unfortunately titled "Hitler Tapes," containing several unreleased songs by George Harrison. We'll put the title down to the quiet Beatle's dark and irreverent sense of humor.

Also up for bid are tapes of interviews by journalist Ray Coleman with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and - somewhat disturbingly - recordings of one of Yoko's primal therapy sessions. It doesn't seem appropriate that such a thing would be made public.



Here's info on the George tape from Omega's auction listings:



UNHEARD AND UNRELEASED GEORGE HARRISON THE HITLER TAPES ABBEY ROAD CASSETTE. Containing track written and recorded by George in 1978. The insert lists the following recordings: Brazil Spoken Intro George Legs Harry, Brazil 1,2 & 3, Sooty Goes to Hawaii (Fast Version), 1 & 2, Mexican Song (George Harrison's Father In Law) and Bullshot (Vocals Legs Larry Smith). Recorded onto a Chrome Super II cassette with a reprinted Abbey Road insert .**This cassette is being sold as an artefact for personal use only.
