The Beatles – Unreleased That Means A Lot Acetate
A 7" UK EMI acetate of the unreleased Beatles song "That Means A Lot." Recorded in 1965, this Lennon-McCartney original was intended for inclusion on the "Help!" album, but neither Lennon nor McCartney was satisfied with the way it came out. Brian Epstein gave it to his client P.J. Proby, who recorded it in '65 (arranged and conducted by George Martin.)(br)The Beatles recorded a total of 24 takes of the song, and this acetate is dated March 3, 1965–the date they recorded takes 20-24, as detailed in Mark Lewisohn's book "The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions."(br)While a version of "That Means A Lot" was included on the Beatles Anthology 2 album, this acetate features a different, unreleased version–a different take, mix, different percussion without maraccas, and an alternate ending. It times in at 2:03, while the Anthology version is 2:36.(br)The VG+ disc has been inspected by Perry Cox, renown Beatles expert and author of "Price Guide for the Beatles American Records." Perry's letter of authenticity accompanies this ultra rare disc. A superb top-end Beatles collectible.
