Considering the proliferation of The Beatles‘ creative output during their heyday, it’s slightly confusing that the band never truly attempted to cash in on the commercialism of Christmas. While the Fab Four seemed happy enough to crash out a film and album every year, they somehow avoided attempting to sell a ready-made banker in the form of a Christmas single.

In 1967, while the band were perhaps at their creative peak, the group released a Christmas treat for their fan club, remaining the only song they specifically wrote for Beatles Fan Club members. ‘Christmas Time (Is Here Again)’ was first recorded in 1966 and then refreshed the following year and released as an extra present for the members of the band’s fan club. The song was later released as part of the 1994 ‘Free As A Bird’ when the band’s three remaining members reunited for Anthology.

It’s a notable release for a few reasons. Not only did the song list all four members of the band as writers — an unusual moment in the group’s discography — but it also featured producer George Martin and Victor Spinetti on double-tracked vocals; all the while, the song interspersed with skits, parodies and a nonsense poem from John Lennon against the backdrop of ‘Auld Lang Syne’.

The release to the fan club would be the final Christmas release delivered by the band while all four were in the studio and can rightly be considered one of their last acts of utter unity.
