Description

The Beatles celebrate their latest film, Magical Mystery Tour, sign for their youngest costar

Exceptionally rare Parlophone Records Magical Mystery Tour double EP record by the Beatles, signed and inscribed on the inside front cover and opening booklet page in pencil, “To Nichole, love, John Lennon, x,” “Love, Ringo Starr,” “Paul McCartney,” and “Love from, George Harrison.”

The consignor notes that the signatures were obtained by Nicola Hale, who starred opposite the Beatles in the Magical Mystery Tour film and is credited in the offered booklet as ‘The Little Girl.’ Hale obtained the signatures at the film’s launch party held at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on December 21, 1967, and, as such, the booklet is also signed by six other attendees from the party, including cast members George Claydon, Shirley Evans, Victor Spinetti, and Derek Royle, filmmaker Peter Theobald, and pop singer Lulu, who famously scolded John Lennon for his drunken flirtations towards Pattie Harrison at the party; Lennon's inebriated state may also explain for his misspelling of the recipient's name.

The complete signed EP is attractively matted with a large color image of the band, a second Magical Mystery Tour EP (with removed pages to show front cover and inner vinyl sleeve, the latter with a reference to 'Little Nicola'), and a typed caption indicating that the booklet was previously sold at Christie’s in 1998. Framed together to an overall size of 20.5 x 31.25. In fine condition.
