A reel-to-reel tape of The Beatles‘ recording classic songs live has been found in a Liverpool attic and is expected to fetch between £8-£12,000 when auctioned by Cameo in August.

The 30 minute Phillips tape features Beatles’ hits “I Feel Fine” and “I’m A Loser” as well as the sounds of the band giggling during an aborted attempt to record track “I’ll Follow The Sun”.

According to a Beatles blog, Wogew, it is likely that the material on the tape was recorded for the BBC TV programme ‘Top Gear’ in 1964.
