Album facts: The Beatles' 1968 Christmas Record
On December 20th 1968, the Beatles released The Beatles' 1968 Christmas Record; their sixth fan club Christmas record.
This was the first time their Christmas messages were recorded separately from one another, as cracks in the band's relationships had deepened.
John recorded separate messages with Yoko. Meanwhile Paul performed his Happy Christmas, Happy New Year song. It also features a rendition of John Lennon's Nowhere Man by Tiny Tim, a ukulele player.
