Rich Idiot Pays $23K For a Reel-To-Reel of Beatles Stoner Chatter

A recently unearthed reel-to-reel tape of a giggling and gossiping Beatles sold for $23,446 in an internet auction. The half-hour long tape, recorded in 1964 and discovered in a north England attic by one lucky punter, features a fun-having Fab Four chatting like pals and laughing like maniacs, including a version of “I’ll Follow the Sun” that reduces the presumably baked John and Paul to a pair of uncontrollably chuckling morons.

Along with all the merriment, early versions of "I Feel Fine," "I'm a Loser," and "Don't Put Me Down Like This" appear on the tape. The identity of the auction winner was not revealed, but honestly, I hope this yahoo remains anonymous forever. I never want to see the face of a Beatlemaniac so rabid that not even the deluxe edition of Help! provided enough footage of The Beatles getting high and giving each other titty twisters (or whatever the hell they put on the expanded special features of fucking Help!), inevitably driving the lucky winner to dropping the equivalent of an inner-city school teacher’s salary on a reel-to-reel of Liverpudlians with the munchies.

Some people have too much money.
