UPDATE: This was uploaded today. Note that this is from IAMAPH0NEY, but not Iamaphoney.
If the Berlin suitcase contains this item, then the finder has a nice collector's piece.
The flexi-record went out to British Beatles Fan Club members around the 16th of December, 1966. According to the accompanying Beatles Fan Club Newsletter, the recording was made "just six days after Paul's return from Kenya." That would be November 25, 1966, according to the letter. The letter indicated that Mal Evans was "given a Special Guest Star role." Paul is credited with the sleeve design and all four Beatles are credited for writing the Pantomime. Some pictures and background information about the disc can be found at http://www.jpgr.co.uk/lyn1145.html
The Beatles seemed in good spirits on the recording. There was no hint of grieving on the part of any members of the band. But there are a few oddities in the lyrics (which have never been accurately published to my knowledge) that make Paul Is Dead theorists wonder.
"TELL ME, ARE YOU ENJOYING THE WINE?"
-"I AM INDEED YOUR HIGHNESS. IT GOES WELL WITH ME. YEH, VERY GOOD
VERY GOOD, HA HA HA!"
-"THE KING SEEMS TO BE ENJOYING HIMSELF TONIGHT! YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE SEEN
HIM ON SUCH GOOD FOCUS SINCE THE OCTOBER FESTIVAL."
-"ALRIGHT! IS THERE A DOCTOR HERE? IS THERE A DOCTOR AROUND HERE?
DID ANYBODY SEE ONE?"
The above quote doesn't sound like something that would have emerged in a conversation built around, "I have an idea for our Christmas message," but all of the Beatles Christmas flex-discs were a little weird. Another oddity is a track entitled "OROWAYNA (Corsican Choir and Small Choir)." It sounds like a legitimate Christmas hymn of some kind, but a Google search of the word "Orowayna" yields only links to items related to this Beatles track. Attempts to transcribe the lyrics have also identified "ENDOMAINYA" as the second line to the song, but to me, the second line has always sounded like "angel manger."
What we don't know (and I honestly don't know why we don't know) is if the item in the suitcase is this actual collector's piece, or if it is something else. Is the disc inside the cover? Are there any annotations? If there was a record, was it the 1966 Christmas flexi-disc or something else? Seems to me that we should know this information by now. Hopefully someone will tell us something soon.
