This Is What An Ultra Rare Beatles Demo Sells For – And You Won’t Believe The Price Tag!
Are You Sure Money Can’t Buy Happiness?
Money may not be able to buy you love, but it sure can buy you a piece of Beatles history – and let’s be real, that’s pretty much the same thing.
Last week, an ultra rare piece of history from the Fab 4 went to auction at the Omega Auction house in Warrington, Northern England where bidders from China, Europe and North America tried to outbid each other with phone and in-line bids for the auction’s coveted star item, a rare, one-off demo that made The Beatles household names.
About The Demo
Credited to Paul McCartney, John Lennon and The Beatles, the demo was made at the HMV store and then handed to George Martin, the future Beatles producer, to help win a recording contract with EMI.
Found in a home in Liverpool after being locked away for half a century, the Beatles demo began with a deserve bid of 10,000 pounds (about $14,200 USD) before being taken home by a lucky, lucky North Englander to the tune of 77,500 pounds – that’s over $110,000 USD! Yep, you read that right: for a cool $110,000 you could have been the proud owner of the demo tape to end all demo tapes – what an investment!
While it feels like The Beatles just kind of…arrived, it’s easy to forget that even they had to start somewhere; demos, playing small crowds, being misunderstood by critics. Whoever nabbed this piece of Beatles history is incredibly lucky, and we’re positive that it’s going to a good home!
