This has been an exciting couple of weeks for Beatles fanatics (everyone should be fans, we're talking true fanatics). What, with the auctioning of the rarest Beatles album of all time last week on eBay (the bid currently stands at a shade over Â£6,000.00--the reserve has not been met however) and now the possible release of a "never before heard" Beatles song from 1967? - Source
