A U.S. First State Butcher album prototype stereo example, considered by Beatles experts as one of the rarest Beatles records in the world. The recipient was Dave Morrell, a Beatles fan and bootleg collector, traded for a reel-to-reel tape of Morrell’s 'Yellow Matter Custard' bootleg that Lennon desired. Lennon filled the blank back of the cover with an original piece of art (see yesterday's post) depicting a man holding a shovel with his dog in front of a setting sun. The cover also includes autographs by Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney, which Morrell obtained later. This is believed to be the only First State Butcher album bearing three Beatles signatures.

@TheBeatles moved from Twickenham Studios to the more comfortable environment of the studio in the basement of their offices at 3 Savile Row, with George Martin producing and Glyn Johns engineering. Billy Preston sat in on piano, which also helped to create a much more pleasant and professional working environment and, as Ringo put it, "the bullshit went out of the window and we got back to doing what we did well."⠀

Ringo: 'I saw him on the 15th November. I was staying at The Plaza. We went over to New York for a while. And I hadn't seen him for a while because, you know, we see each other wherever we are. And he came over with Yoko for an hour and we had such a great time because they stayed five hours. And it didn't matter that it was a year between we didn't see each other, it was always fine when we did, but it was a particularly great time that we, that I had, anyway... Oh, man, they were happy. They were two people in one.'⁣
