From what I understand from this website, I have some iteration of a tape copy of the Get Back sessions Glyn Johns acetates. I inherited this from my father who was a music producer in the 70's and 80's, he said it was a gift he received. That's really all I knew about it. Then a few years ago I finally had an engineer friend with a reel-to-reel dub it for me to digital, and I was quite surprised what I heard. Terribly rough recordings, John and Paul mixing up the verses on Two of Us, the sounds of of mircophones being moved around, a 7 minute rough version of Teddy Boy, etc. The weird thing is, it's not an uncut recording from start to finish. You can tell when the recording stops and starts up again. The track list is as follows:

1: Get back

2: Teddy Boy

3: Two of Us

4: Dig A Pony (which transitions directly into...)

5: I've Got A Feeling

6: The Long And Winding Road

7: Let it Be

8: Don't Let Me Down (at this point, and I'm hoping it was just his machine, but the dubbed audio start to get a lot of 'tape warble' and towards the end of the song it's pretty much indiscernible as a Beatles song)

So, there you have it. I'd like to know if I can get this certified/appraised/whathaveyou because frankly, I'm pretty hard up for money right now. Can anyone share their knowledge on how to determine the value of this, if it's even valuable? Thank you.
