Some while ago I stumbled across a site that has pdf's of a whole bunch of Beatles legal documentation. It slipped my mind for some reason. I was reminded of it today when making a response in another thread. I thought they may interest a few people, and so here are a couple of links, along with a list of the links they have.

Link 1: EMI/Capitol Contracts (with Appendixes) - 1962 Agreement; 1967 Agreement; 1969 Agreement

Link 2: A whole big bunch of Capitol documents from February, April and May 1981 showing their relationship with Apple going into meltdown - February 17 (Chronological Listing of Claims); 19 (List of Claims, Promotion Issues); 24 (Apple Claim for Rate Differential); 27 (Apple Claim for Scrapped Inventory); (Beatles and Apple Road Map); April 1 (Beatles Product Label and Series Numbers); (History of Publishers Licenses Computations); 9 (Apple Audit Claim for AFM Fees); (Apple Audit Claim for Excess Package Deduction); May 12 (Default Penalty against Apple); (Sometime in New York City)

Not sure this will cause much discussion, but there's some interesting stuff there.

Really interesting! I was just reading about this in Lewisohn and this handy outline gives you some idea of how terrible the contracts were. The way Capitol/EMI operated really stuffed things up. And also this article about Beatles sales by the same guy.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

I can't remember the precise details about this, but I know it was Alexis Mardas's (Magic Alex's) refutation of some claims in the NYT. IIRC he was taking legal action against them at the time for describing him as something of a fantasist.

It's really interesting for throwing some light on the Apple Electronics and Maharishi episodes.

The National Australian Archive, which is in the process of moving (apparently), has saved its most valuable documents until last, and as part of the news that the documents are now being moved, they have published one of particular interest - John's entry card for the 1964 tour.

The answer to question 7 shows an amusing mistake...

I got exited at first when I saw the date the form was completed. "It was on my first birthday!", I thought. Then reality set in when I remembered that they toured Australia in early June and Brits write dates incorrectly*.

RN, you are correct that the mistake in box 7 is funny. Thanks for posting it.

@parlance YOU'RE BACK (sorry I saw you viewing this thread).

 

Also anyone who wants to see Beatles' legal documents as a business student I have access to all documents created by registered companies in the UK and Ireland, so if you want to see a specific company for a specific year, go ahead and ask.
