A complete set of seven UK pressing Beatles Christmas records sent to members of their official fan-clubs in the United Kingdom and the United States. Matted and framed with their original sleeves, to an overall size of 30.5 x 42.25. In VG to Mint-condition. One such record was issued each year from 1963 to 1969 and an LP compilation of all seven in 1970. Conceived as a means to appease fan-club members whose letters, due to their sheer volume, were not always being answered in a timely manner, the records included the Beatles' messages of thanks to ‘loyal Beatle people,’ along with skits, Christmas carols, and original compositions. None of the original recordings has ever been subject to general release though a version of ‘Christmas Time is Here Again,’ appeared in edited form on the 1967 record, eventually gained an official release in 1995, as part of the The Beatles Anthology project.
