1966 Beatles Press Conference

A 14-minute reel-to-reel tape recording of the August 17, 1996 press conference by The Beatles at the King Edward Hotel in Toronto is up for auction at Bonhams & Butterfields. This is the recording of where John Lennon said the band was more popular than Jesus. The tapes were made by a young photojournalist who attended the press conference. He tried to sell them back in 1966 but nobody cared for them so they sat in a drawer for over 40 years. It’s reported to sell between $20k to $25k at the June 13th auction in Los Angeles.
