    Beatles Reel to Reel Tapes and Two Sets of Three Multi-Colored Flexi-Discs (Capitol/ Evatone, 1982). Three transparent vinyl soundsheets on serial-numbered backing cards were issued in 1982 through national record chains as giveaways to promote sales of the Beatles catalog on Capitol. Two songs from three different albums were selected as follows: 1962-1966 ("All My Loving" & "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" on red vinyl), 1967-1970 ("Magical Mystery Tour" & "Here Comes the Sun" on blue vinyl), and The Beatles ["White Album] ("Rocky Raccoon" & Why Don't We Do It in the Road" on clear vinyl). This lot contains the original reel to reel master tapes for these promo records as sent to Musicland in 1982 for production of their flexis (original airbill included), as follows: (1) "Master Tape for 'Beatles' Soundsheets" ¼" audio tape on a 10.5" clear reel, in original box with production details, includes the above six songs. (2) A Capitol "Master Reel Control File" ½" audio tape at 15ips on a 10.5" Ampex metal reel, in original box. This tape includes five of the above six songs as well as four additional tracks- "Back in the U.S.S.R.," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "In My Life," and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" (missing is "Why Don't We Do It in the Road"). Also included in the lot are two sets of the three discs, one set each from Musicland and Discount Records (all NM 8). We note that the transparent disc from Musicland has a particularly low serial number of "69". It's time to dust off your old reel to reel tape deck in hopes of winning this great lot. Excellent condition.
