An auction of Entertainment Artifacts at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane in London tomorrow will include several unique Beatles items, including a Beatles All You Need Is Love acetate, the only known acetate of the full-length recording of this famous 1967 Beatles single, which originally ran for 6 minutes 39 seconds, and the 1926 Art-Deco malachite green "Eavestaff mini pianette" piano on which Paul McCartney first discovered he had written a new song provisionally titled "scrambled eggs" which was later to become the most covered song of all time, "Yesterday."
Also included in the auction will be a John Lennon hand-painted peace banner, a Gibson guitar used by Jimmy McCulloch in Wings, a Gold Disc award for the Wings Over America LP, and the original first recording and publishing contract signed between John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best and Berthold (Bert) Kaemfert Produktions on behalf of Polydor records signed and dated 6/19/1961.
