Beatles Signed Let It Be US Stereo LP Cover (Apple AR-34001, 1970) in a Framed Display, the Only Example Known to Exist Bearing all Four Signatures. The Beatles 12th studio album, a soundtrack for the motion picture of the same name, and the last Beatles LP to be released. Since this album was released soon after the announced breakup of the band, there was never an occasion to get a Let It Be LP signed by all at the same time. This particular example has a great and well-documented history. John Lennon autographed a Let It Be LP cover for a fan in May 1975 at the WFIL "Helping Hands Marathon." In the early 1990s, George Harrison signed a separate album; Ringo Starr's signature was added to that one on June 4, 2006, in Toronto. Soon thereafter, the John-signed and the George & Ringo-signed covers were perfectly "melded" together by a top-notch paper restorer. The resulting cover with three signatures was then made complete when Paul McCartney signed it on July 15, 2010. The resulting fully-signed cover has been professionally and creatively matted with a photo of the famous "rooftop" concert taken during the Let It Be filming and archivally framed to an overall 21" x 24". To quote the letter of authentication from renowned Beatle autograph expert Frank Caiazzo: "This Let It Be LP is the only one known to exist bearing the signatures of all four members of The Beatles, and as such, it is exceedingly rare and desirable. Add to that the fact that this is one of very few LP covers which have been autographed on the front by the entire band to surface, making this indeed a very special signed Beatles album cover." A complete transcript of his enthusiastic letter can be found on our website. Record albums, in general, signed by all four Beatles are incredibly rare and desirable. To be able to bid on a "one-of-a-kind" piece like this is a rare privilege.

CAIAZZO LETTER, Dated 2013.

"The purpose of this letter is to serve as authentication of the signatures of the four members of the British Rock and Roll quartet known as The Beatles. These signatures are found on a U.S. Apple Records issue LP cover for the band's final album, entitled Let It Be. The circumstances surrounding the signing of this album is as follows: John Lennon has autographed a Let It Be album cover in blue ballpoint pen, in May of 1975, when he was the special guest host at the WFIL 'Helping Hands Marathon'. George Harrison has autographed a separate Let It Be cover in the early 1990's, in black felt tip marker. That cover was then signed by Ringo Starr, on June 4, 2006, in Toronto, in black felt tip. Shortly thereafter, the album signed by John and the album signed by both George and Ringo were 'melded together' by a top restoration specialist, thus making one cover with the 3 signatures. In Denver on July 15, 2010, Paul McCartney finished off the set of Beatles autographs on this rarity, by signing it in black felt tip marker. Autographed Let It Be LP covers signed by either John Lennon or George Harrison are extremely rare, with less than a handful surfacing to date of each. This Let It Be LP is the only one known to exist bearing the signatures of all four members of The Beatles, and as such, it is exceedingly rare and desirable. Add to that the fact that this is one of very few LP covers which have been autographed on the front by the entire band to surface, making this indeed a very special signed Beatles album cover.

"I hereby guarantee the authenticity of the aforementioned Let It Be LP cover which bears the signatures of all four members of The Beatles. This guarantee is without time limit.

Frank Caiazzo"
