Beatles collectors CDs offered in Cape Town
« on: December 26, 2017, 12:41:12 PM »
These items are ex the estate of Silvio Ramazzotti.  Silvio was a consulting electronics engineer for Marconi in the 1960s and 1970s, helped set up Abbey Road and the New York Capitol Records (who recorded for Apple Records and Parlophone) studio.  His collection of Beatles memorabilia is being auctioned by Christies in London.  In the collection are letters from the Beatles, signed albums and about 100 signed LP records.  Some of the letters fetch thousands.  He also has a roll of toilet paper from Abbey Road which was annotated by John Lennon.  It is the stiff brown stuff.

In 1999 and 2000, Apple Records in NY decided to transfer the original stereo master tapes to CD and Silvio was involved in setting up the electronics

He has a fair number of Beatles CDs from that era and some of them are offered here.  All CDs are in mint condition, the covers, booklets and discs are perfect.  The White Album is a double CD in a white cover with pictures of John, Ringo, George and Paul

The asking price is R100,00 per CD.  I am sure that if you take the lot, a better price can be organised

Collection from me in Cape Town.  Can ship anywhere for PostNet's usual fees

Can provide label details (Label, serial number, etc) on request

Hi Chris

I'll take Abbey Road and the White album if still available.

Cheers

They are all available.  However, I don't want to be left with unwanted items, so will give it a few days if you don't mind.

Silvio's daughter says there is a record shop in Rosebank in Jhb that will take the lot, I have sent 33 to her already and just took out one example of each, for the forum collectors
