Original Beatles Demo Recording Auctioned For £18,000

An original Beatles demo recording that was found after being missing for more than 50 years has sold for £18,000 ($23,500) at auction. There was interest from buyers across the globe in the seven-inch Dick James demo disc, which feature a two-minute rendition of It’s For You, written for Cilla Black by John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney.
The demo recording was discovered by Black’s nephew Simon White. It had been given to his father by Black – his sister – when he was 18.

But while Mr White’s father assumed it was just a copy of his sister’s recording of the song, which shot to number seven in the charts, it was in fact the original demo sung by Sir Paul and delivered to Black at the London Palladium in 1964.
Black, who died just over a year ago at her home in Spain, wrote about the record in her book What’s It All About?.
The record was sold as part of the 25th Beatles Memorabilia Auction, organised by The Beatles Shop, at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool on Saturday, where around 300 rare items ended up for sale.
