Rare Lost Beatles Demo For It's For You Found!

Every now and again we come across a real treasure for our auction and it really does take our breath away. This year we are extremely excited to have stumbled across a piece of Beatles history.

Back in 1964 the Lennon/McCartney song “It’s For You” was written especially for Cilla Black and Paul McCartney recorded a demo acetate that he sent round to the London Palladium for her to listen to. (This is mentioned in Cilla’s autobiography). Since then the whereabouts of this acetate has been unknown.

Well, until now that is.

Mislabelled in a collection of other acetates as being by Cilla this super-rare recording has resurfaced and will be up for sale in our annual Liverpool Beatle Memorabilia Auction on 27th August this year.

We could hardly believe it when we played through the collection of Cilla demos we had taken in for the auction and came across Paul’s voice.

This is an important, and previously considered lost, piece of musical history. It is expected to sell for £15,000 - £20,000, perhaps even more.

To preserve the value of the item we can only provide a 20 second clip of the recording. You can hear Paul introduce the song with the words “It’s For You take one” at the beginning.




Cilla’s version features Paul on piano and the single peaked at number 7 in the charts.
