For this time around on #askNat I’ve pulled up another email message from Phil Boylett in the U.K. who has this to say:
Hi Nat. Many thanks for answering my question about Billy Preston’s involvement in the Abbey Road album a little while ago. My new questions concerns the special Christmas shows that The Beatles were made to take part in by Brian Epstein in December 1963 and 1964. Are there any known recordings or film footage of either of these shows available? Virtually everything by The Beatles has been recorded by someone and as there were numerous performances, I can’t believe there isn’t anything from these shows available on bootleg? Can you give me any help with this? Many thanks Nat.
Hello Phil and thanks for writing in again. The Beatles Christmas Show was a stage production that was conceived entirely by Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
