Hear Paul McCartney’s Long-Lost Experimental Christmas Mixtape for Fellow Beatles

For Christmas 1965, Paul McCartney presented his bandmates with a unique gift: a homemade record produced just for them, consisting of sampled songs, original sketches and avant-garde loops. “Something crazy, something left field, just for the other Beatles, a fun thing which they could play late in the evening,” he later said. With only three copies made, the discs are among the most rare Beatle-related collectibles. While these acetate pressings have almost certainly since worn out, an 18-minute segment of Unforgettable has recently surfaced, providing a glimpse of this experimental private mixtape from the Beatles’ most creatively fertile period.
