Here’s a look at today’s Beatles news. A cassette demo Paul McCartney made of his song “Attention” is now up for auction and George Harrison’s estate has teamed up with BMG to administer the late star’s song catalog.
Ringo Starr recorded the McCartney song “Attention” for his 1981 album Stop and Smell the Roses. The cassette demo features McCartney singing, playing the piano and producing a percussion sound with his voice. The demo is expected to fetch about $13,000 at auction in Merseyside, England coming up on April 26th.
The George Harrison estate deal with BMG for administration of Harrison’s catalog encompasses more than 200 songs. The songs were written with The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys and many solo songs. BMG was already handling Harrison’s label, Dark Horse Records.
