AllMusic Review by

Between 1963 and 1969, the Beatles recorded seven special Christmas singles for their fan club. These were not formal musical efforts, but closer to off-the-cuff comedy. Early on, they tend to be cheery and thankful for their success, and later on the recordings are more esoteric. (Reflecting their breakup, the 1969 recording is four separate pieces.) The result is an interesting curiosity for fans, although not necessarily the sort of thing you'd want to put on while trimming the tree. This album, compiling the Christmas singles, was available from the fan club between 1970 and 1972. It has never been released commercially, and most extant copies are bootlegs.
