The Beatles were suppose to release the Best of Beatles compilation in 1964 as a two LP set through Capitol Records. The project was to include the group’s Capitol hits as well as some of their material from Vee-Jay but once the fact that Vee-Jay still owned the rights to the material until a later date was discovered, the set was shelved. Well now the rare acetates of the Best of Beatles album will be going up for auction with a starting bid of $10,000 on August 9th.

The acetates will include a letter of authenticity from Clifford J. Yamasaki of Let It Be Records that reads, “I certify that this 2 LP acetate of ‘The Best of the Beatles’ is one of two known to exist and was purchased from a Capitol Records executive for a project that was scrapped. The project: #46934-41. The date of pressing: 6-2-64.”
