And finally, their seventh and last Christmas record Remastered (a little hard to swallow because of just a little too much of John & Yoko than the other three, but it has great moments like Paul's ad-lib song ''This is to wish you a Merry, Merry Christmas''):

I like how they kept the fan club logo the same all those years, even though the band long ago outgrew that image.

I think at the very heart of the Beatles was their line up of Paul Bass, John Rhythm, George Lead (Guitar) and Ringo Drums; despite everything they went thru, did, and recorded (switching of instruments ie Paul playing lead) in those 7/8 years they never forgot that so the logo was always relevant.

True. When I meant "image," I was more referring to the cosmetic look, since that logo screams 1963 and Cavern Club and Ed Sullivan appearance. At their core the Beatles were always what you mentioned (Paul playing everything he could get his hands on be damned). It's a good thing they didn't update it; by '69, you'd have to add long hair on all 4 Beatles, plus you'd have to have Yoko lurking around somewhere…

Yoko in the front next to John with Paul and George scrabbling to get their hands on her throat and Ringo in the middle as the peacekeeper.

I just noticed something!  

On the 1969 record, about a minute in, Paul sings a little Christmas song.  It sound VERY MUCH like "Mama's Little Girl" off Wild Life.  Has anyone else noticed that before?  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
