This lot has closed

Estimate: $2000+


UK EMI Records 45 RPM record re-issue of the single ‘Yellow Submarine / Eleanor Rigby’ by the Beatles, signed vertically on the reverse in black ballpoint by Paul McCartney. The consignor notes that the autograph dates to 1983. In fine condition. The record is included.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks, and by a letter of provenance from the original recipient: “In 1983, Paul McCartney made a rare appearance on Saturday evening live BBC TV…I believe it was around the time of the release of Say, Say, Say. At the time, I was a young teenager, living in London, who liked to collect autographs…The BBC Radio Centre in Portland Place, near Oxford Circus and The BBC TV Centre at White City were the places I went to mostly, on Saturdays and during the school holidays.

On that day, I took 4 Beatles singles with me, in the hope I might meet with him. Paul McCartney turned up very early at the front gates to the BBC TV Centre, sitting in the front passenger seat of a red estate car, driven by, I believe, Linda McCartney…I gave him the singles and he was able to hand sign them all…I was thrilled to meet him even if it was briefly.”
