On a more musical tip, the event’s also set to feature an ultra rare mono vinyl copy of the ‘Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins’ album, which features John and Yoko naked on the cover. It’s believed there were only 200 mono copies ever produced, and all were enclosed in brown paper bags because of the controversial nude sleeve.
There’s some other interesting lots, too: son Julian’s harmonica, various rare Beatles vinyl, and a piece of The Cavern’s original stage are all available. It all kicks off at LIPA this Saturday – get yourself down there to grab the most rock ‘n’ roll throne in the whole of the UK.
