The Beatles – Unreleased 1964 Interview Master Tape

An unreleased 1964 master tape of the Beatles being interviewed by Australian disc jockey Tony MacArthur of radio station 4BC. On June 29, 1964 MacArthur interviewed each Beatle separately, as well as their press representative, Derek Taylor, at the appropriately named Lennon's Hotel in Brisbane, Australia. A few minutes of this interview was released on the album "The Beatles Talk Downunder," however this is the complete 31 minutes of interviews. It's got a lot of fascinating content, including Ringo talking about missing part of the tour due to illness (he was replaced by Jimmy Nichol;) John talking about his book, making the Hard Day's Night film and record; George on The Beatles' (lack of) acting abilities, and Paul talking about the rereleases of all their recordings with Tony Sheridan. Loads of very interesting content. This tape was sent to LA DJ Dave Diamond in 1964, in exchange for some of Diamond's Beatles interview tapes. In excellent condition, with a CDR transfer of the tape. We can find no evidence of any other copy of this recording anywhere.
