In Sydney.News story pasted below Man attempts selling Beatles recordings for $5m Authorities are trying to authenticate classic Beatles recordings and artwork believed to have been found in a suburban Sydney apartment. A 27-year-old Lidcombe man raised police interest after he reportedly tried to sell the items in a newspaper for $5 million. Detective sergeant Dave Darke says the tapes may have been stolen from the Abbey Road studios. "Two reel to reel tapes of Abbey Road and The White Album. The tapes appear to be originals or copies of the originals from tapes that were stolen back in 1969 from the Abbey Road studios," he said. The man has told police he bought the tapes from a Parramatta music festival in 1991 for $1,000. It is unlikely the man will be charged, but he is helping police with their inquiries.
